Phew, it has been a WHIRLWIND of a week! I arrived home from the Annapolis Creative at Heart Conference with a journal overflowing with business ideas and things I wanted to make better in my brand. (one of the best things about attending big conferences like that! I’ll be sharing more about speaking and my experience at the conference here soon!) However, the first morning home, when I sat down to start all these new action items- my computer decided to go all wonky, so I dropped it off for repair. The worst!
(Psst…You can read more about my computer crash plan HERE! )
An entire week went by, and then the decision came. Do I invest half of what I paid for my computer to try and fix it, or invest in a new one? It was not an easy decision by any means, but I decided the right move was to invest in a new one, as a well working computer is a VITAL part of my business. I was so grateful to have been able to borrow a friend’s computer to help me answer email, send out my Honeybook contracts for new summer clients- but man wasn’t I relieved to see those pretty Adobe Icons load to my computer when I set it up yesterday! I’m so lost without Photoshop and InDesign in my business! (And thanks to the extremely talented Elle & Co– I will be finally learning Adobe Illustrator this month!)
But despite the computer setback, I definitely kept busy! This weekend I photographed new head shots for the lovely Kleigh O. Photos, who is working a brand new website- and I also photographed this dreamy maternity session on the coast of Cape Elizabeth! It was SO freezing, but these two didn’t show it. I sent off the black & white film from this session earlier this week and I absolutely cannot WAIT to see the images when they return!
Now that I have InDesign back at my fingertips, I am working hard on a brand new resource that will fit so perfectly alongside my Portrait Session Planning Guide template! I am so excited to share about it with you guys! These next couple days are jam packed as I play catch up here in the office, and get packed to jet off to Atlanta for the Pursuit Community Conference!
Stay tuned for more of this coastal maternity session!
