Welcome to my blog! I'm thrilled to be able to share with you my favorite images from weddings, engagements, maternity, and more! Grab a cup of coffee and get snuggly cuz this blog will give you all the feels!
Every time I write one of these posts I am so amazed at how quickly time passes. This baby’s first year thing really boggles my mind. Wasn’t it just yesterday that I was hanging out with Lindsay & Russell shooting their first baby’s newborn portraits? Seriously…time…SLOW DOWN…uhg. When I was little I couldn’t understand this need adults had to slow things down and now I totally get it. Lindsay & Russell have been incredible supporters of MLP and I’m so grateful to have met them and documented so many wonderful memories for them to share. I love walking into their home and seeing my photography EVERYWHERE! It’s the best gallery a girl could have! Now they’re starting a new journey just like me! They’ve moved across the country for a great opportunity. I pray that they’re new chapter is just as wonderful as their last. I hope I get to see them again when I visit Cali next summer! WOOHOO! Anywho, let’s take a moment and review Russ Jr.’s first year in life. It sure was a happy one!
Woah, woah, woah! What?! You’re moving? Where? Why? When? How?!!!
Well, to answer your questions:
You’re moving?! – Yes! 😉
Where? – Greensboro, North Carolina!
Why? – For several reasons, but the biggest is that I have a great opportunity to help some friends in that area as well as expand my business!
When? – Currently there is no set date, but my aim is for February 2013
How? – Preferably by my car…walking would take me awhile. 😉
Ok, ok so yes, I am moving and It’s come about rather quickly and not without some serious prayer and consideration. I can tell you that it’s been interesting trying to finish up wedding season and trying to plan a move at the same time…Can we say mental break down? uhhhg!
Here are some more answers to questions you may have:
What does this mean for your 2013 weddings? – The weddings that I have currently on the books I will be holding to. I plan on coming back up to NY in June and staying through the majority of my wedding season.
Are you still booking in NY? – I am currently booking here in NY, but only through certain dates. If you have a wedding date from June 2013 through September 2013 I will be here in the area.
What if I’m getting married in 2014? – Do not fret! My goal is to keep a presence here in NY, that means I will need to shoot at least 3-5 weddings a year here in the CNY area. So please inquire! 🙂
What about your Lifestyle clients? – Any current clients that have scheduled shoots I will be holding to or rescheduling.
Are you still booking Lifestyle clients? – Yes, if we can arrange the shoot for the times I will be in NY then I have no problem booking.
How often do you plan on being in NY? – Other than the upcoming wedding season I have no set dates for when I will return to NY. Although ,my family and friends are in the CNY area and I plan on visiting them for most major holidays. Otherwise I will be posting both here on my website as well as on my Facebook fanpage any dates I plan on returning and will be available to shoot.
What about Travel fee’s? – Currently there will be no additional travel fee’s – although this could change
If you have any other questions about my move or how it will affect you please feel free to contact me at MabynLudke@gmail.com
Of course you know what this means right? Full on coverage of the move! I plan on at least blogging if not vlogging about my journey. You all know how much I enjoy moving… 🙁
I am so so so SO SOSOSSOSOSOSOSOSO thankful to my family, friends, NY clients, and fan base! You have been a constant encouragement and literally the loves of my life! My experiences here in NY can never be replaced and I will hold you all very near and dear to my heart! I hope to continue staying in contact with you all, even if it’s vicariously through Facebook! To say that I will miss NY can’t even begin to accurately describe how I will long to see you all, take pictures of your smiling faces, and laugh, laugh, laugh at some many wondrous things. As this chapter closes I am looking to the next one with just as much excitement as fear. There are so many new adventures to be had and I hope that you’ll all still take part in them, even if it’s just here on the blog. Thank you again for everything my friends. I love you!
