TO – DO LIST // october

I have been pretty much the worst blogger lately. Sigh, and I feel pretty terrible about it. Ok, really terrible about it. It is a week into October now, and I am JUST sharing my to-do list for the month. Truth be told, I pre-wrote most of this post the last week of September, but I was feeling a little overwhelmed thinking about October that I just sort of put it on hold. But October is here, and I now I only have 3 weeks to get this all done… eekk. But first, here’s how September went ….


>> Work on the new Brittany Bekas Photography website (and try to get it launched by the end of the month). A work in progress….I wish I could just set aside some time to crank this out but I have been putting all client deadlines before this .. eek.

>> Visit my high school best friend, Ashley, in Tampa and photograph her perfect little one-year-old, Hunter. It was so great to sneak out of town and visit with her and photograph her perfect little guy- Hunter. He is coming to the blog soon.

>> Order new sample wedding albums. One book is designed … just needs a little tweaking before I will order it. 

>> (Finally) print some of the gorgeous photos from South East Asia. Sigh, they are in a folder. I might just order the ones I have ready and then do another round of more before the end of the year. I am really going to set aside a day or two to just do this for me … because I feel extremely guilty that I haven’t printed a single photo … still.

>> Submit my summer weddings to industry blogs for features.

>> Celebrate Phil’s BIG birthday!

>> Read The Fault in Our Stars + Unbroken + a feel good book (any suggestions?). I read If I Stay, The Fault in Our Stars, and Steal Like an Artist. Three books, I think that counts. 

>> Live in the now. (The most important thing on this list.)

Chicago Wedding Photography - Brittany Bekas Photography


>> Cheer the Chicago Blackhawks to a victory on the road in Nashville

>> Update my wedding / engagement portfolio before engagement season starts (hello, holidays)

>> Celebrate my golden birthday while working on a golden tan in Grand Cayman. (I just love everything gold…)

>> Buy at least one pumpkin. Drink apple cider. Watch one scary movie (but a good crime show can also count).

>> Order my NEW sample albums. Yes, for real.

>> Develop new session posing so it is full of natural movement

>> Photograph 12 shoots and 3 weddings and edit them before the end of the month

>> Eliminate at least 3 things from my closet and anything I haven’t used in the last 6 months

What’s on your list this month?
