Happy New Year!

Oh Hello There 2014, how you doin? Each year, somewhere between editing my last sessions and curling the ribbons on my last wrapped package I hit a wall of complete exhaustion. No longer able to type emails, post Facebook updates and my Instagram feed becomes a blur.  Sensory overload.   My body put me on forced rest, days of sweat pant chilling, no makeup and pizza delivery.  It wasn’t a glamorous vacation but it was exactly what I needed after an amazing 2013 fall portrait season.

As the days passed my plans and dreams for 2014 came flooding into my head.  One day I sat to jot down one small idea that turned into a 13 page full detailed plan.  I have always been a bigger dreamer and I love that feeling New Year’s brings, fresh starts, blank slates, new projections and an endless list of the impossible things that somehow seem to get done.

I look forward to the year ahead.  I have a new vision for my art in my head, just like I did last year and can’t wait to reach a new level.  I have new plans for this very website I want more for my readers.  Heather and I are coming up with clever, witty, feel good content and can’t wait to share.  I look forward to tighten up my systems for more seamless workflow and faster turnaround for my clients. I’m going to write a book – yup!  Why not?  I think my most exciting change will be my sales process BUT that’s all I have to say about that at this time.  Hahaha.  More details coming soon.  And the list goes on!

For little go-getters like me the end of December means review time!!     I always start the New Year’s goal with a review of the present year.  2013 was a blessing year for me working for myself has been the single best thing I have ever done.  Just like my corporate gigs of the past, it’s a roller coaster of emotion, endless hours of work, big snowballs of fear, major accomplishments that you’re too busy to pause and appreciate but I have come to learn this is all a part of the job.   This is one of the toughest jobs I have ever held BUT unlike my corporate jobs at the end of the day it all feels good, really good.  I am making a difference and it no longer goes un-noticed.  It feels good to be the women in charge, it feels good to stand proud during the highs and it feels good to figure out the lows too.  I struggle to find the words to describe it but it’s a roller coaster ride where I plan to stay in the front seat every lap!

For the first time in my life I feel like I am making a REAL difference.  I am capturing love and I seriously LOVE it.  I can’t count how many sessions ended with Mom relieved that we finally got one of that smile or a Dad who turned and said “That wasn’t too bad” or a kid who wakes up the day after our session asking for Ms. Tiff.  My cup is over flowing with love!  I can’t thank God, my husband, my family, my friends enough for all of their support.   2014 is going to be even bigger and better.

I have 45 sessions from last year that were never blogged – yikes!!  It gets hard at the end of the year.  Fall sessions take up a lot of the time but I also have a lot of clients who like their images to be a secret until the big holiday card reveal, which I love.  I am not sure that I’ll be able to post all 45 but I am going to try!

Happy New Year Pals!  Here is a sneak peek of sessions to come!
