2023 is looking to be a big year!
I spent the majority of December 2022 reflecting on how this past year has gone. And while I am I'm incredibly proud of the things that I accomplished over the year, and I am also incredibly grateful for the many trials that I experienced! I am excited for bigger and better things to come!
This year, I want to continue to:
- Learn and grow my craft
- Travel to more beautiful locations (2022 gas prices kind of squashed that goal last year haha we will see how 2023 is!)
- Have many EPIC styled photo shoots
- I think my biggest goal for 2023 is to be published in magazines! I have many styled photo shoots and product photo shoots already in the works and I cannot wait to send some of the biggest magazines in the western world my work! I look forward to the challenge, and the opportunity to learn and grow so that I am a more skilled photographer for my clients!
There is something that I am really passionate about, and that is being completely transparent with my clients and friends! So with that being said, 2022 was SO HARD! I had decided to completely change my entire structure of my business at the beginning of the year, and although I'm so happy with the restructure. It has been hard for me and resulted in some personal struggles that has brought on some tough moments for me and my family. It's been so hard that I wondered if this is what I should be doing. is it worth it? It honestly would be easier if I went and got a 9-5 job. Clocked in and out and worked for someone else.
But I've done that before, working the 9-5, Monday-Friday, working in such a stressful environment that I was on anti-depressants and anti-anxiety pills, and seeing a therapist every week. And as you can tell, it was slowly killing me to do that! There had been a few signs from God that told me that quitting my job and taking the risk of staring my equine photography business was the best route for me to take, and like I have said it's been such a hard journey! But would I trade that for my old life? HELL NO!!!!!!
"Hold tight to your dreams, if it tries to buck you off. Hang on even tighter!"
I'd be lying if I said I wasn't nervous about this upcoming year...I want so badly to make this my best year yet! It's a little scary for me to be starting 2023 being nervous rather than excited and motivated. But there have already been moments that have ignited my passion and excitement! I am nervous and excited to see where 2023 will lead me! And in 12 short months, I'm sure I'll be rereading this blog and laugh at the memories from 2023!
I'd love to hear what your goals are for 2023! Shoot me a message and tell me!
