When you run your own business you quickly realize that there is no such thing as "work hours"...because every hour you are awake you are working. For Steph this is true. She is 80% of what is LakeHaus Productions. (She would argue that she is 90%!)
Over the last few days her phone is always beeping, ringing or vibrating and our home phone is constantly ringing as well. I am not complaining, business is great and she loves the energy that revolves around what we do at LHP, but sometimes we just have to say...."OK, the next 3 hours has nothing to do with LakeHaus...or my work at the energy factory."
Last night we got done with Maxim's hockey games ( won 1 and tied 1, Maxim had an assist and a penalty) and Steph basically worked all the way home from the games in Watertown...the beauty of the iPhone...she heard from two brides asking us about doing their wedding, a couple of families that needed photos taken and a senior who procrastinated a little bit on scheduling senior pictures. All that on a Sunday night after 7pm.
In a lot of ways we are like a family farm...there isn't a day or an hour that isn't somehow devoted to what we do. Our parents are involved with the business, our kids help out and we have a "harvest" season. Right now is that time.
So if you ever need us we are only a call, text, email or Facebook message away. With all that said....we are going to go on a bit of vacation from December 23rd through January 1. We have sessions scheduled during that time, and some customer work to do, but we will also be spending a bit more "away" time to hang with our kids and extended families.
We will answer "immediate needs" requests, but if you have to wait a bit to get an answer back during the Christmas break please understand that we are stepping back just a bit to rest our "creative juices".
Even artists need breaks.
But until then, by all means, give us a call...we will bring you into our "family farm" with open arms.
