10 things 2012 taught me ; Portland, ME Photographer

2012 was very good to me. It was a year of many experiences, and many exciting changes. It is the year my business turned into what it is, and it is the year that I decided to take it seriously and give it all I’ve got. I am very excited for 2013 and all of the new experiences and people that await me! Here are ten things that I learned in 2012:

#1. When it comes to editing, less is better.

#2. I am worth it.

#3. You only need to forget something once, to never forget it again!

#4. Wedding dresses are a lot harder to photograph than they look.

#5. Making my business legit is super important.

#6. All aspects of my brand needs to be curvy 🙂

#7. Friends and family are awesome to practice on.

#8. It is way past my bedtime before I know it when I am reading photography blogs.

#9. I still get nervous before every session, no matter how many times I have done it.

#10. To relax and exude my personality every chance I can 🙂

#11. As a bonus, I learned that I actually can be original and creative 😀

2012 was simply fabulous. I hope everyone has a very safe and happy New Year’s!!

You can usually find me adding books to my never-ending “to read” list; challenging myself to do things like not shop for a year; sneaking crispy m+ms from my secret hiding spot so I don’t have to share them with my daughter; and melting over seeing my children smiling at each other.

Oh and I guess I should mention - I’m a seasoned Portland wedding photographer who provides not only kick-ass wedding photos, but also a meaningful and laid-back experience from the time you book to the delivery of your final images. 

I share all things personal, business, tips, and life as a mom and business owner here on the blog!
