Happy 2010!

I  know I know, I’ve been neglecting this blog something terrible, but I promise I’ve been better at fulfilling orders and wedding albums in the last couple of months!  I’d like to wish everyone a happy and prosperous 2010, and welcome in the new year with some fresh wedding photos from a January 2nd wedding to be posted soon (you may recognize the couple from their engagement session)…but before that, I figured I should share some of my new years resolutions!

Number One…quit neglecting the blog.  Yep…this is an important one.  Ideally, I’d like to post at least once a week, so that is what I am going to try to stick to.   And I’d also like to get weddings on the blog much faster – I’m ashamed to say I still have 8 weddings from 2009 to post, and a couple of autumn engagement sessions.  I guess that will make the “once-a-week” posting a bit easier hehehe!  :)  Now I need to come up with some sort of punishment if I do not post something at least once a week…any ideas?

Number Two…read more.  I have a library full of books that have not been read.  They range from photography books to geeky computer books to novels.  I have this thing where I go to bookstores and buy books but never read them.  I’ve imposed a “No more new books until you finish one you have” rule for 2010 – a little motivation for me to get reading!

Number Three…more art besides photography.  I believe in art therapy.  When I was in high school in college I dabbled in everything – painting, pencil sketching, sculpting, beading, crafts.  I used to paint murals, but until recently I had not picked up a paintbrush in years.  I just finished painting one of my favorite quotes on my office wall by hand – over 30 hours of work.  My next project is going to be crafting a nature scene on my bathroom wall in mosaic glass, or painting a large mural in my stairwell.  I haven’t yet decided!

Number Four…hold those who are close to me even closer.  :)

Here’s to kicking off a wonderful 2010!

~keep smiling!

    I think you’re doing a great job as is, Kim. If you find yourself behind on blogging maybe you could do what I do and post a single image or two from a shoot per post. Or dig back for something that has already been processed. As far as punishment goes? Buy another book. :-)

    Thanks Richard! My problem is that I think about blogging all the time, yet other things just always end up getting put first. I’m not even sure if posting a single image will fix that…but I’m working on it!
