Every few months, I love to take a photography break. It's typically in the winter and/or summer months that I do this. For me, I find it refreshing to focus on other things than only shooting and editing as my side project. Winter months bring an early spring cleaning and organizing and summer brings more time with my daughter since she's out of school. When it's time to come back to photography, I feel restored and ready to create new things. I discuss how I deal with actual photography ruts in a different post, but I feel they are much different than deciding to take a break.
