Since reading many of my well frequented blogs and seeing inspiring goals that others have for the year ahead, I decided it was time to write down my own. I know some people think it's cliche to post New Years resolution posts or blogs of that nature but I don't care. I think it's important to have tangible goals for the year ahead and it gives you hope that your life can be better or at least a bit more of what you want it to be. I'm a huge believer in putting things out to the Universe. If you put it out there and want it badly enough, you can make it happen (with a little, or a lot of hard work of course).
So, internet, I am putting it out there. This blog post will hopefully hold me accountable for my actions in 2014.
I have so many goals for this coming year that I actually had to narrow it down. Shoot for the moon and if you miss land among the starts, right?
In 2014 I will:
-figure out how to use Google+ and actually use it! I've been procrastinating on this one for a while
-get over 1,000 facebook page fan "likes"
-take a photography workshop (I've already signed up for one in June - yay me!)
-network with other wedding professionals in the industry and make new connections and friends
-master off camera flash
-buy a desktop computer (right now I only have a laptop)
-buy a 2nd camera body (I rent one right now every time I have a photo shoot)
-get published on Green Wedding Shoes
-second shoot a wedding. I have never done this! I've only ever been a 1st shooter but I think it would challenge me and I'm up for it.
-write more personal blog posts. I have a hard time opening up to anyone let alone the internet so this one is going to be a challenge but I know it's important
-blog consistently 1-2 times per week
-put more of "me" into my business. I think I am closer than ever to finding out who I want to be creatively as a photographer and now it's time to brand my business to attract like minded clients
And now for a few personal goals:
-go to Vegas with my husband (he has never been)
-get professional photos done. Its embarrassing to admit but our family photos are 3+ years old :(
-book a boudoir session for myself. This is wayyyy out of my comfort zone - eeek!
-I want to actually see my abs - I know they are under there somewhere! I think I saw them last when I was 16...
-spend less time in front of screens. Computer screens, TV screens, phone screens. Too many screens. I need to go outside more.
Well I think that's it! It's a long list but I'm up for the challenge. If you have any goals or aspirations this year I would love to hear them!
Here's to a wicked year ahead.
