Every year in January I take the time to sit down and set goals for the year.  I am a “lists” person so this helps me visualize my goals and see what I need to do to achieve them.  I have also read that if you write them down and share them, it makes it easier for them to become a reality.  So that is what I am going to do today!  I have split my goals for 2016 into two different sections.  My Photography Business goals and then my Personal goals.  Lets start with the Photography ones 😉

From January to April, I love that I can already cross a few of these off of my list.  This year has been so busy already, but it has been so fun.  I can’t wait to see what the rest of the year has in store for me.  I am slowly starting to figure out my dreams and what it is that I am supposed to be doing and I am loving where it is taking me.   I can’t wait to create something magical with you this year!
