I have been working on so many behind the scene things for Katie McCaw Photography. Thank goodness for Shawn, my personal businessman who has been doing a lot of paperwork and excel sheets. I of course have been helping him but mostly doing the behind the scene crafty and fun stuff. If you followed my old blog you know that I like to update and track my life too. I don’t want to separate my business and my personal life because although there will be times to separate, the blog is where I share a little of everything. I want people to “know” me before they hire me.
With that said, I took on a challenge for taking a picture every day for a year in 2011. Let’s just say that idea was not my best and I gave it up after about 13 days. If I can’t take a meaningful picture why bother? So I stopped bothering. I haven’t given up completely and I have been working extra hard at working on documenting my life. I am keeping that promise. Another thing I’m taking on with other photographers is a self portrait of myself once a month. The purpose behind the photo a month thing is to document a little of my life from that month. A year is such a long time even though it goes by so fast. I love looking at pictures from a year ago and see how much things have changed.
So, here is January. This was taken right after our wedding…Shawn and I checked into our hotel on our honeymoon and we were in heaven. We went from cold January to warm January in a matter of a four hour plane ride. It was the best thing ever to get way in January. Everyone has been telling us that this has been the worst winter in years. People have told me they been sick nonstop, depressed, and dreading the cold. In all honesty, we have not been sick (except for a cold on the honeymoon!), not been bummed out, and have been enjoying the snow storms (more on that in another post!). We blame all of our good luck on our vacation, wedding, and all that vitamin D we soaked up on our trip.
