Where have you been?

"Where have your been?" That may be a question you've been asking yourself when you've come to this blog in the last few months. Yes, it's been very quiet in the blogosphere of Debbie Brown Photography. The reason you haven't seen much activity is that I had rotator cuff surgery just before Christmas. What was supposed to be a very simple procedure, with about six weeks recovery, turned out to be surgery where the surgeon fixed multiple tears and I was in recovery for four months...no weddings, no portraits...nothing!
Now, if you know me, you know that I DO NOT do well with sitting around. I have to say that the entire month of January, and a good part of February was absolute torture for me-physically and psychologically.

In the end I went back to work about six weeks sooner than I should have (did some portraits, and some preschools-both of which allowed me to get back into the swing of things, but for short bursts at a time), but it all worked out well. In anticipation of this surgery, I turned down multiple weddings for the spring because I did not know what I would be facing--I knew that booking a wedding and then possibly having to send another photographer in my place, was not something I was willing to do. I take my relationships with my clients very seriously, and I knew it would not be fair to them, to send another photographer, when they were expecting me, at their big day.

It was a difficult choice to turn down weddings, but in the end I'm glad I did it, because I know that my prospective clients would find themselves in good hands with the photographers I referred them to. I also know that got the recovery time that I needed, to be able to come back at 100%!

Now, to blow the dust off this blog, and show you a little of what I've been doing in the last month! As you can see, the blog is taking on a new look. It's a work in progress, but didn't want to be away from all of you any more than I had to be, so please bare with me as I update it over the coming weeks.

Although I've only been back to work a month or so, I have lots to share with you. However, in the meantime, here are just a few images for you to take a look at. Check back periodically over the coming weeks, and I'll try to get you all caught up in the world of Debbie Brown Photography!
