goal #2

My second goal is to shoot 6 weddings in 2009. I'm off to a good start on this one since I've had two booked for a while and booked two more in the last few weeks! Yippee for that! Four down and two more to go.

Why did I decide to make this a goal? First of all I love photography and love being part of someone's big day. Secondly, and a little less emotional and a lot more practical, is the income it will bring to our little family. I did a little calculating and 6 weddings in one year would really help us out. No, there won't be shopping sprees or or diamonds, but not stressing about the mortgage is nice.

So, that being said, spread the word! I've said this already, but don't forget my deal. If you refer me to someone for wedding photography the you get a free photo shoot. My friends Linda and Colleen have already earned their free shoots and you could be next! Pass on my website to your friends and show them this little movie.

Thank you for all of the supportive comments about goal #1 (lose 20 lbs). It really helps to know you are rooting for me! Things are going well. Weekends are hard I must say. You don't realize how many fun activities revolve around eating yummy things until you can't have that stuff. But I stuck to the plan and I feel pretty good.

Today: Mista Nug in the morning and a play date with some friends, some work during nap time and catching some of the inauguration on the tube.

Hope you have a good one!

Did you know that you're shooting a wedding I'm in this year? And that I know both of the first two girls you booked for this year? Small world. :)

You're right, weekends can be tricky... Save your flex points for a weekend splurge or earn some extra activity points! You can doooooo it! :)
