Much of our education centered around helping photographers to prioritize and keep their marriage and family first. As we lived out that commitment in our own lives, we were faced with making a lot of tough decisions. We realized that life and career opportunities are full of good things, but we were committed to zeroing in on what is truly great. In order to do that, we would have to dig deep inside and deal with some wounds from our past and take some risky moves. Those moves included me (Jeff) leaving the photography business and beginning a new venture as I faced some of the resentments I had let build up through the challenging times our industry currently faces, and Julia would have to face her achieving addiction that drew her to work more than what was healthy. As we faced those issues by seeking help and truth, we are growing into an authentic way of approaching life that we never knew existed. Our marriage is more life producing and healthier, and we are able to be so much more present in our children's lives. We are learning that life is a short journey and that each day is meant to be lived fully alive!
