Podcast Show Notes

Episode 009: Juggling Motherhood with Michelle Kristine Photography

Michelle is the face behind the camera at Michelle Kristine Photography. She has officially been in business for about 2 years and is based in the Ada/Grand Rapids Michigan area. She’s had a love of photography since she was  a little girl, during college she took many photography classes, but had no idea how to parlay it into a career. Fast  forward 20 years, many moves, 1 husband, 2 kids, a dog, careers in graphic design and account management and  itch of taking pictures that never went away. She’s the one I talk to whenever trying to figure out the technical side of photography and when I need the work/motherhood balance validation. I’m excited to welcome my friend and colleague  Michelle Smigielski.

“when I realize it’s a super busy season I realize i need to take a break. that doesn’t mean i’m not working at all but i need to not respond to emails right away or just sit an watch a movie or read a book, or clean my house. That is my self care.” – Kara Hanes

It all goes back that bill of rights we were told “You can have it all” but you really can’t – Michelle
