Oh 2014 – where did you go? So much has happened last year and I didn’t have time to share with you all! I finished my MBA in December, attended a Jasmine Star workshop and shot a few weddings… all of which will be coming to a blog near you!
In the meantime, I decided to take the month of January to focus on my goals. I wanted my goals to be more attainable and purposeful. I am in this business to share and preserve memories. I am here for my clients. 2015 will be a year of growing, planning and making things happen for me!
Blog at least 1-2 days a week…. Baby steps, I know…
Update my pricing & wedding workflow
Network with wedding vendors: 2014 was a great year for connecting with local vendors… I can’t wait to connect with more this year!
Re-start my sweet and savory posts!
Work on my branding
Shoot another destination wedding… Jamaica? Hawaii? I would love to visit an island this year and shoot such a romantic wedding/portrait session!
Do a styled shoot! This will definitely be done this year!

Disconnect more & be present: Limit the amount of time surfing on social media. Put the phone away when around family. Be present during the moment instead of wanting to pull out the cell phone to capture the moment. Focus on what is in front of you… soak it all in!
Stop comparing myself to others: Oh, you know that saying “Comparison is the Thief of Joy” – this is so true! The comparison game has been a struggle for me. I love to see industry peers succeed but at times I find myself comparing my work to theirs. At times I feel like I am standing still as others are making things happen. Not this year – I promise myself to focus more on my work and my business. I want to do what is best for my clients. As I choose to disconnect more from surfing on Social Media this would allow me to focus on more important aspects of my business.
Focus on health and wellness.
Find more ways to be organized: My office needs help – seriously!
Take more vacations with the hubby
Learn and shoot film: HUGE goal of mine. I have been an avid follower of film. The creamy textures and amazing bokeh has caught my eye for a long time. This year I plan on renting a Contax and trying it out for personal work. I want to step out of my comfort zone and find ways to be more creative.
That is all for now! I know it is February 2nd – but I would love to know what are your 2015 goals! If you have already made a blog post about them, please feel free to list them in the comments!
Cheers to 2015!!
