New Beginnings

I love new beginnings. I’m that person who makes a goal for something, but I’ll start it on Sunday since it’s the beginning of a new week. Or buys a new notebook, but waits until the beginning of a new month to start using it. I like fresh starts! And while I’m not really one for New Year’s Resolutions, I do sit down at the beginning of every year and try to make a list of goals, not necessarily for myself, but for my business.

And what better way to stick to a goal, than to write it down…. AND SHARE IT WITH THE WHOLE WORLD! I mean it’s a little weird, putting your dreams and plans out in the open for all to see, but I see it as an opportunity to push myself. I look forward to sitting down on December 31st, 2012, and figuring out how many goals I actually reached, and which have changed.

So here goes…

Build & spread my brand. – Now that I’ve discovered my brand, and the direction I want to take, I hope to continue spreading that through the entire experience, from sessions, to prints packages, to DVD’s. Build my brand, and let people come to love me, for me!

Spoil my couples more. – I really love weddings. I think they should be fun, exciting, and memorable from the engagement to the honeymoon. So I intend to do things that make the engagement memorable. I am working on some amazing things for my coupes – welcome packets, behind the scene trailers, and my new favorite and soon to be revealed, websites! Each bride and groom will receive an amazing newly designed wedding website, that will allow them to share their photos with friends, family, and Facebook. It’s still a little in the works, working out some final kinks, but I’ll be excited to send out the new website to all of our 2012 brides in a week or so. In the meantime, here's a sneak peek...

This is just the beginning, and in 2012, I hope each bride and groom have an incredible experience working with us!

Complete a 52 Weeks Project – I know how easy it can be to get so caught up in the deadlines, and editing, and clients, that you forget to take photos of your life. Of fun. Of the now. So my goal is to take a photo of my husband and I together. ONCE. A. WEEK. Something random, even when nothing is going on. Hopefully, I can post them each week, but even if I don’t, my goal is that, at the end of the year, we can remember life as we knew it then, and look forward to another incredible year.

Right now, those are my three highest goals. I know that as I go through the year, I’ll have more to add to my list, and some that will change, but for now, I like that I’ve sort of shared with the world my three biggest ones. I look forward to what this year brings!
