Let’s be honest…short days, cold, windy weather...not really my jam. Now, longer, sunny days, and warmer temps? Yeah...we are definitely BFFs. Here’s another truth…Fall is CRAZYTOWN for photographers…I’m absolutely not complaining, because I absolutely LOVE what I do, but just explaining a little for those who don't live in the bubble…after that rush (plus throw in the holidays, too)….nearly every single photographer you know is ready for little breather. There’s a Valentine’s Day rush for us #boudiephotographers, but other than that, this is referred to as the “slow season” (for a bit anyway).
January/early February weather and lack of sunlight can really affect me…I either want to hibernate inside until it warms up, or be shooting and creating. But here’s the thing…even though I don't THINK I like January all that much, it forces me to slow down, to reflect. On last year’s goals vs. accomplishments…what I am grateful for (ummm…all of you, my family, and SO many other things), what was awesome - that I loved, and then which things got off track or didn’t go as planned (yeah - blogging). This time of year reminds me that we all need to reflect, breathe, renew…and then regroup and get re-energized for the coming year.
I have a conference coming up that I think will be fantastic for learning some new things, connecting with friends (both new and old), and feed and inspire my creative soul. I have been working on my Vision Board for 2018, and I have some big goals and dreams…I hope you’ll continue to follow along!
Hang in there, friends. It’s February now, and warmer weather + longer days are coming.
Now go grab another cup of coffee, and have a fabulous day!
