Business planning for 2012!

Business planning for 2012! Wahoo! Call me craz-ay but I love creating and setting goals! Especially if I can make a list! Yes.. I AM a list maker! 

2011 just kind of happened, I flew by the seat of my pants in regards to my business (who am I kidding, my life too).

My goal was to take great pictures and hope people would want their pictures taken by me! I would set goals for the next coming month, only when I was motivated too. I didn't have much of a direction besides to learn a lot, improve and have people LOVE my pictures. As far as the HOW to do that... who knew?? Certainly not me!

2012... I am ready for you! Well almost. My husband can do amazing things to an excel document and has made me invoices and spreadsheets galore! I type in simple numbers and he has it doing the math for me already!  (He knows how to tug at my heart strings).

 I also am on a waiting list for some free legal advice! They will be looking over all my documents I have and contracts (yep, husband making those too, although we will probably be going through a lawyer before we actually use these)

 I am tracking mileage now! So I will know how much more on location shoots cost me!

I am tracking how many hours of editing I am doing per photo shoot! So I can know how much I am making hourly!

But my biggest goal for 2012?

capturing the connections between people. Capturing the love they feel for one another. I want your heart to burst with love when you see my photographs from a wedding I shot. I want you to cry with love when I shoot a birth photo session because of the beauty.

And skin tones and angles! I have so many other things that I of course want to better at and gain a deeper knowledge of. But those 3 things, those are my" FOCUS FOCUS FOCUS FOCUS "things.


  1. Go you! Seriously, I know 2012 is going to be an amazing year for you, not only in your business but in your personal life too! Your photos are amazing and you know how much each session you do of my family melts my heart because of the emotion you capture and the passion you put into it! I can't wait to see what 2012 has to bring!

  2. Good luck with everything, I know you'll do great!!

  3. I love setting goals too but can't seem to keep them! :-(
    I think I'll try harder this year :-)
    Love your photos .....
