Episode 016 | Work/Life Balance: Getting It All Done Even with a Young Family with Matt Gruber


Parenting and business is a tricky balance. In the first few months of having a kiddo, it’s not too bad. You’re able to manage the work load despite a lack of sleep. Just put the baby down on a play mat and there they stay! Ohh, what a false sense of security you’re lured into!


The next few months and years are more challenging. They’ll be incredibly rewarding but not without some bumps and bruises along the way.


Putting it all together, getting it all done, and finding balance is key. If you’ve ever wondered or you’re in the thick of parenting now, this episode on finding work/life balance even with a young family is for you.


Join Matt Gruber and I as we catch up and talk about our families. Matt Gruber is an amazing photographer based out of Philadelphia. He’s a MagMod Ambassador (read: off-camera flash aficionado), shoe lover, and dad of two littles ones. Matt talks about what changed before and after he had kids, how he manages his workflow after a wedding or portrait session, and his mindset to getting it all done while still enjoy time with his kids.


This is real conversation between two self-employed, work-from-home, wedding photographer dads in the thick of one of the busiest years we’ve ever know! Enjoy!
