the monthly goals post

This has been such an exciting month!!  First of all, on Sunday, Megan & David got married!!! Stay tuned for some shots I grabbed of them during their special day! Now I know that’s not back in August, but I’m still so excited about it I just had to post it here too!!  I also accomplished a bunch of firsts, with more to come!! So in my book, August was awesome! I was shooting almost everyday (my camera, folks) which is always a good thing and I held my first family, engagements, and senior shoots!  I also managed to accomplish most of my personal goals too!


  • Book three senior sessions (check!)
  • Tweek blog to the way I want it (mostly check! I’m sure I’ll always have a little bit to add)
  • Order flashdrives (womp womp womp, my first uncheck :( but in my defense, I decided to change that goal)
  • Gain a second shooting job (I’m hoping that I’m all set for a special day in October!!)

Personal Goals:

  • Work out everyday (Almost check! I actually did a pretty good job of this, minus last weekend!)
  • Stick to budget (CHECK!!!)
  • Finish reading Revelations (check!!)
  • Get more organized (… it’s in progress! )

BUSINESS GOALS for September:

  • Get my packaging situation in order (which is mostly order today!! woohoo!!)
  • Make sure all contracts are updated correctly
  • Stick to workflow
  • Organize/Finish desk project!! (don’t worry, I’ll be posting about this one soon!)
  • Take advantage of my brand new beautiful Macbook Setup! (also posting about this soon!)

Personal Goals for September:

  • Start listening more and arguing less (it’s a problem I’ve seemed to develop lately)
  • Keep trusting God for what comes next
  • Stay on top of my school work!
  • Continue exercising almost everyday
  • Eat healthier
  • Finish getting organized


So have a lovely Tuesday guys and gals, and enjoy it!  Also, the photo credit above goes to Katelyn James!

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.
