Evening routine with toddlers involves saying "let's eat" about 1 million times, great way to teach them a new language. Today's Spanish lesson, "A comer" "Let's eat" like a broken record. #2under4#dinnertime#struggleisreal
Yet another failed attempt at making traditional homemade cultured ghee! 😣😭 I miss ghee! All other ghee is just butter cooked till it melts down and becomes ghee, sometimes with preservatives sometimes with hydrogenated oil mixed into it, sometimes with an offensive smell. But traditional method makes sure all the right nutrients and fats seep into the ghee making it into a balanced daily dose of amrit(elixir sorts) Traditional method has full fat milk set into yoghurt, churned into butter, butter melted down becomes this golden syrup fit for Gods! #attempt#fails#ghee#food#homemade#struggleisreal#ayurveda
I suddenly have a new found respect for woman dealing with finding stuff in their purse. I've been using one of those vinyl drawstring backpacks for my gear while cycling and holy shit!!!!

This week on the blog I did a little something for those of you considering starting a photography business, struggling in the beginning stages or who have asked me for advice. I hope this helps you!
I also wrote it regarding common misconceptions I hear about my career and hopefully gave you a better picture of what the life of a photographer is really like. (At least for me, I can't speak for others.)
