HAPPY NEW YEAR FRIENDS! Personally I love the thought of a new year and I love the thought of new years resolutions! Every year I try and seriously sit down and write out goals for myself for the upcoming year. Last year I met every single one of them! I feel that saying it out loud or having it in writing helps me to push to make it happen! Soooo, this years new goals are live!
Make sure to read below to see what I want to accomplish and leave a comment telling me one of your resolutions!
Blog More Consistently
Ok guys, lets be real, I am awful at consistent blogging. But that is all about to change! 2016 is bringing on major changes and that may include a few new blog series! I'm ready to show more of my work and have more interaction from you! Let me know if there is anything specific you want to see!
Book More Destination Weddings/Travel More
Travel has my heart. That's all there is to it. In 2016, I have two destination weddings (YAY)! They haven't even happened yet and I am already obsessed with discovering new places and shooting beautiful people at beautiful, unknown locations! I received my passport late last year and have so far had it stamped once, my goal is to find a way to add at least one more stamp to that book before 2016 ends! Ideas?
Be Featured on Green Wedding Shoes with a REAL wedding!
This actually terrifies me to put in writing. For styled shoot, it's easier (not easy), because you plan the shoot to be aesthetically perfect for whichever submission you are aiming for. Real weddings are such a bigger goal! I want a wedding, that I had no control of planning, to still be featured on my FAVORITE wedding blog!
Perfect My Workflow/Find A Life & Work Balance
This one honestly makes me so excited and sad at the same time. I have a good idea of the workflow I want to work for and I plan to make 2016 so much better than 2015. Looking back I realized how many important events, birthdays and family gatherings I had to give up because I was simply too busy. MY business is my everything, but I always say I want to be a good person first and an amazing business women second. No more sacrificing memories I cant get back!
I think I will actually stop at nothing to make this happen. For anyone who knows me, you know that I have seriously struggled with wanting to go to college, is it for me, should I finish or just stop where I am? This is the main reason behind my new blog, Pre Reqs and Portraits. The plan is to finally graduate with an AA in Photography in May! If worse, comes to worse I may have to extend it to December, but either way 2016 is my year and I plan to become a college graduate!
Be More Domestic
Half way through 2015 I moved out of my parent's house and into an apartment with my boyfriend. Quickly after I learned that I am not very good at cooking (meaning it took me two weeks to clean my oven the first time I tried) and also not great at cleaning. I am really hoping to keep a clean apartment and cook more often in 2016! That kinda falls under the balance goal as well!
