Brand Spankin New

Welcome to my new blogsite! It’s been quiet on the blogging front as I was stuck in the “inbetween.” I didn’t want to post to my old site and was waiting for my new site to go live! April is always a time for me to reflect on where I am in my life since it’s my birthday month. Last year I set a general goal to put myself out there more, photograph more, blog more. I feel like I’ve really been able to accomplish those goals. In the past year I did about 20 photography sessions including, family, portrait, promos, and second shooting for weddings! My goal for this upcoming year is more of the same, but I really want to step it all up a notch!

I’m looking forward to a few weddings that I have booked, a trip to Thailand (for one of the weddings), and embracing myself more as a photographer and a mother. I’ve come to realize that these are two areas of my life that bring me the most joy and inspiration. That’s why I’ve organized my blog into “Photography” and “Being a Mom.” Obviously the photography part is more about my business as a photographer, but I wanted to include “Being a Mom” as my more personal section. My hope is to ¬†provide some useful, fun, information and if nothing else, share a glimpse into what two kids, a full time job, and a photography business looks like.

So welcome, take a look around, comment if you feel so inclined, I’d love to hear from you all! And of course, a big thank you to my designer/love-of-my-life/partner-in-crime/birthday-cake-supplier Brent. In case you’re wondering (or don’t already know) “Yums” is one of my most popular nicknames. Having a name like Ayumi (that sounds like I-YOU-ME) is bound to produce a multitude of nicknames. This is also how I came up with the idea of You and Me World. I’m so clever.
