East-Coast-Fine-Art-Portrait-Photographer-Lauren-R-Swann-photo_0095

Guys, can you believe that it’s May already?! I feel like the past few months have absolutely flown by and I am so excited to start off a new month! May is always one of my favorite months of the year but this one is particularly special!  There’s a lot on the calendar and it will be exciting on the blog as well!

At a glance:

  • Both Brent + Emily and Jeremiah + Abby are getting married this month! I am so excited to be a part of their big days! I’m sure they are going to be every bit as fabulous as these two couples are!
  • This month Morgan and I will also be celebrating two years of marriage!  It feels like yesterday and yet feels like forever ago at the same time!  I’m so grateful for our marriage!
  • I also graduate from college this month! Y’all this has been four years in the making and it can’t come soon enough!!

Business Goals for April:

  • Launch the new site!!! Yay!! I’ll be announcing the launch date tomorrow!! (CHECK!)
  • Photograph my shoots well this month! (CHECK!)
  • Kick of wedding season with a bang!  I am so excited and I want to make sure that I have all my workflow systems in check before it gets too crazy around here! (CHECK!)
  • Clean camera and lenses! (CHECK!)
  • Update my own branding collateral! (CHECK!)

Personal Goals for April:

  • Work on maintaining and creating discipline. (I think I’m getting better each month, but its definitely something I can keep working on!)
  • Try new recipes! I bought a fun magazine with a bunch of great recipes that I can’t wait to try! (CHECK!)
  • Spend less time on my phone during the weekends and when I could/should be spending time with Morgan. (I would say that I did better this month!)

 

Business Goals for May:

  • Photography my two weddings well!
  • Keep consistency up with blogging- I’ve got some fun content scheduled for this month!
  • Catch up on editing and make sure that’s all squared away before June!
  • Prepare for the craziness that is the month of June!

Personal Goals for May:

  • Graduate college!
  • Spend less time in general on my phone.
  • Make healthy eating choices.
  • Try 3 more new recipes!
  • Celebrate our Anniversary!

I know that this month’s goals are not necessarily super extravagant or full, but the calendar is pretty full and I want to make sure that I am keeping realistic expectations for myself!

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.

I'M LAUREN
