Goals + Dreams Hello August!!

Monday Mash-up_0265

It’s already that time again… time to examine this month’s goals and dreams.  Sometimes when I write these posts, I come back to them and check-in every once in a while and other times I just completely forget to.  Months like those it’s a surprise of what I had promised myself I would do and I have to admit this month was one of those months!  This month was so busy and packed full that I’m left feeling a little bit like a chicken with my head cut off! Haha!  So this month, I will try and fix that!  So let’s see what’s on the calendar for this month:


  • I’m shooting a couple of weddings with two of my sweet friends! I can’t wait!
  • ‘Tis the season of Senior Portraits and I love it!! I have quite a few portraits scheduled for month that I am super excited for!!
  • My new Sample Albums finally got ordered and should be arriving any day now!! I can’t wait to see them!!!


  • We’re hosting quite a few parties this month and that should be lots of fun!
  • While this isn’t quite a good thing, school starts August 27 for me… whomp, whomp, whomp!
  • On a happier note, this month marks 6 years of Morgan and I being together!! That’s crazy!!

Goals + Dreams for July:

Business Goals:

  • Finish up all editing.. I have a lot in the works right now but not all of it is completed! (CHECK!)
  • Stay on top of blogging! (CHECK!)
  • Plan further in advance for MPH and make it really happen… except for this week! (Nope… I may have to either get better at this one or revisit it!)
  • Book one session while we are in South Carolina! (Check, unexpectantly!)

Personal Goals:

  • Have fun!  This month is packed full and I’m so excited to have a blast! (Check!)
  • Work on a capsule wardrobe… maybe! This is a scary goal for me and so I’m not sure if I’m brave enough to do it! (Fail, I don’t have the courage yet!)
  • Finish personal editing too! (Mostly, check!)

Goals + Dreams for August:

Business Goals:

  • Shoot my weddings and senior sessions well
  • Create a blogging calendar and stick to it
  • Write more posts from the heart
  • Save up to purchase a new lens (this might go into next month’s too!)

Personal Goals:

  • Eat healthy.  This seems to often be on the list, but really, it needs to happen!
  • Stick to the chore list that Morgan and I made together
  • Use social media less

Wife, mama, wielder of light & joy, and capturer of moments.  I thrive off of conversation and genuine connection.  In between wrangling our kiddos, and hanging my husband, you'll find me dreaming up my next idea or creative endeavour.  It's these things that culminate to give my imagery a warmth and joy to them - the greatest compliment I could receive.
