May went extremely fast. I literally feel like I was just typing up my goals poolside in Grand Cayman … excited about the season getting busy. And now, one month into “busy season” … busy it has been. Here’s how I did on my goals for the month.
>> Spend 30 minutes a week shooting with my new Nikon 105mm f2.8 macro lens. I have been totally, utterly in love with this new lens. I’m actually not sure how I went so long without this … so I have been using this lens a ton. So many gorgeous detail photos coming soon!
>> Contact old clients for quotes about their Brittany Bekas Photography experience. My new website is being coded this next week (yay for the new brand), so I have been in touch with old clients to get their stories/quotes for a new section of the website. Can’t wait to share them with everyone soon.
>> Start a book club. I have a group. I sent out a survey. This club will be starting soon. If you are interested in joining, please let me know …. we have a great group of people already.
>> Build my glamour portfolio. I haven’t had much time to work on my glamour portfolio because I have been focused on the new website, but this is in the works and will be a goal for June too. If you are free for a shoot during the weekday, contact me so we can have some fun.
>> Eat more salad. This has been so fun because I stocked up on so many yummy veggies. Jicama … snap peas … cucumbers … roasted corn … oh my. Lots of salads have been consumed. Phil is digging our healthy dinners + protein so this will be something I keep doing all summer long. Have any good salad recipes? Let me know.
Now that summer is officially here … I will be focusing on more personal goals than business goals …. here are a few things on my list. Stay tuned for a summer to-do list coming soon.
>> Attend at least one Chicago fest
>> Shoot only with my prime lenses (sorry 24-70 … I still like you…)
>> Launch the new BrittanyBekas.com. For real.
>> Submit at least 3 weddings/shoots for publication
>> Take walks after dinner instead of vegging out on the couch
>> Enjoy one weekday poolside. Guilt free. Reading encouraged.
