holy crap. this is getting a bit ridiculous. how in the heck are we already to october?! i feel as though i was in a coma for the past month! i’ve been working hard at catching up and shooting a lot trying to catch the beautiful colors of autumn here in michigan. we’re almost to full color and my week is crammed. september i was desperately craving some time to catch up and relax but its looking like november is going to be more of that month for me. perfect timing for the holidays and i plan to go christmas shopping pretty early this year. but lets not rush the days along because they do that pretty well on their own.
so now that its hit me, october is here! so many things to be excited about. i have my last wedding of the year and i cannot wait to end with an amazing wedding for april and clayton. what a way to end the year. lots of portrait sessions and super excited to be meeting so many new people and booking lots of weddings for next year. its somewhat like a blind date when i meet this couple for the first time but everytime i walk away pumped about their day and the fact that i got to meet them and hear their stories. so beautiful. september and october and usually pretty busy with client meetings and also engagement shoots for my 2012 weddings.
another thing that excites me about the beginning of october is that i get to finally announce the winner of the facebook giveaway! i went to random.org and entered the numbers and our lucky winner is Stephanie Van Rhee! so excited to be sending you some goodies in the mail this week [ please email me your address at firstname.lastname@example.org and i’ll send them over to you steph! ] and can’t wait for you to use them all and let me know what you think! some of my favorite goodies. thank you so much to everyone who helped spread the word on the facebook page. only two more until i reach 450, so keep spreading the word and i’ll definitely have to do this again sometime. i will admit that i do get annoyed with so many contests on facebook so i hope i didn’t annoy anyone too bad with my give-away because i am thinking i will do it again in the future sometime. it was just too fun and exciting to see all the people that support leah mullett photography. if you didn’t win this time … could easily be next time.
so seeing that i was in a coma the whole month of september and with the constant sessions and weddings, many of my october goals repeat my september goals but its all about the effort and i’m staying productive. goals goals goals.
