Finding my Sweet Spot

I love photography.  There's no question about it... It consumes almost every waking moment.  But even the things you are most passionate about, can become the very thing that wears you down.  I found myself in such a situation.... in a place where I focused all my attention and energy on capturing and creating moments and memories for other people... I failed to take time out for myself.  I failed to create my own memories.  I failed to take care of my passion.  I needed to fall in love again.... fall in love with photography.... fall in love with life.  So... over the 4th of July, I quit my job... just for a few days.  No deadlines, no album designs or lightroom editing.  No phone calls or email, or blog stalking.

Paul and I headed north for our annual trip to Minnesota... and to a breath of fresh air in our lives.  We spent 5 relaxing days in a tent, in a hammock, by the lake, by the campfire, canoeing the St. Croix river, and kayaking on Clear Lake.  It was bliss.

Now that we've returned, I have some catching up to do, but here are a couple of images from the trip. 
 I will share more soon!

About Christina

One of my favorite memories from my own wedding, aside from marrying my husband, was when my Dad walked me down the aisle and I leaned over and whispered to him, "I'll always be your little girl."  I love that moment!
     It's moments that make up our lives, defines who we are, and ultimately create our destinies.  Many such moments have brought me to where I am today.  I began photographing in 2001, and began Sandberg Photography in the fall of 2006.  This has been a huge dream of mine, and I believe that God has given me a gift of capturing unique and special moments; without Him, I am truly nothing!  I owe this dream to Him!
