Favorites List : 12.6.2015
Every year during this time I find myself attempting to re-establish that whole magical life-work balance that comes after a really amazing (nearly finished) photography season. So here’s what I’ve been up to these past three weeks.
- Tuning out the clutter: Clearing the over-saturated email box full of ‘ending today’ sales- still rolling in from Black Friday mind you- that inevitably end up re-starting immediately the next day or being ‘extended’ for another week… delete, delete, delete. A tidied up inbox feels mentally freeing.
- Loving this fitbit: A big goal of mine this Fall/Winter has been to get outside more and start running again. I love my studio of course, but woods and moving are always appreciated and have a special place in my heart. Seriously- this little watch- talk about some motivation.
- Navigating the seas: Shiny objects are distracting to us visual folks, so when I’m browsing the web- sales I clicked on, products I’m researching, various video feeds, testing out new studio systems- I’m trying to adopt a new filtering technique that’s (so far) working out pretty well. Announcing the arrival of the favorites list.
- Finally, and probably what has helped me the most to adjust to a relaxing not-quite-so-busy time of year, is our upcoming boudoir get-a-way weekend. I’m so so very excited about how this has all come together so flawlessly. From the B&B where we’ll be shooting to the set up with all of the talented ladies helping us out. If you missed the newsletter the launch goes out tomorrow, but until then enjoy this gorgeous shot of our friend Michelle and the shiny things listed below.
