Today I made myself a cup of tea, opened a fresh pad of lined paper and sat down at my desk to make some serious changes. You know, the whole “new year, new you” thing. I thought about everything I’ve accomplished in the last year, and all of the things I want to do as I move forward with my business and personal life.
I made a few hard decisions and decided that the new year was as good of a time as any to start over (again!) with my business. The terrifying process of rebranding has loomed over my head for the past year- new website, cards, new blog design, Facebook page, Twitter account… there are SO MANY things to tweak and make my own. Thankfully, I am blessed with a huge support group in the Showiteers community- they are an amazing group of professional photographers who never cease to amaze me.
The lovely Julie Story has designed a gorgeous website that I can play around with to customize for my wedding website. I am so excited to start working with it! Thank you Julie!!!
I also snagged an amazing design for my NEW Risq Photo Group boudoir site from Heather at Thea Creative- and it rocks! Boudoir has always been my favorite subject to photograph, and this year I will be mainly focusing on that area of my business. I am passionate about making women feel drop dead gorgeous and sexy in their own skin, and these sessions accomplish that. Check the new site out at www.risqphoto.stephaniemoorephoto.com! a BIG Thank You to all of the beautiful women who allowed me to share their stunning images with the world!
Personally, I’ve made a few changes as well. I am going to be making more time for my little Mia and Graham. It’s hard when you are running your own business to put everything away and just focus on your family, but that is SO IMPORTANT, especially with kids. I am going to set business hours, and when those are up then it’s family time- I can turn off my phone and my computer and really give them 110% like they deserve.We’re going to take more holidays together, do more fun day trips, and spend more time having playdates with Mia’s friends. I want to be able to enjoy a cup of coffee with friends + make time to laugh and chat about kids, husbands, and pets. It’s going to be glorious!
So here’s to starting over…. however that looks for you & I. May 2012 be the best, most successful year for you yet!! I know I’m hoping it will be. Cheers!
