Although December is my most favorite month, November is definitely a very close second. To me, November screams "warmth" even though it's when the cool weather really starts kicking in here in Austin. November means driving to Lindale for Thanksgiving with Will's family; it means Christmas tree hunting and spending a whole day decorating our house. November is a month of looking at the past year and thinking about all the many things we have to be thankful for. It is a simply wonderful month. October went by in a flash. I feel like there wasn't enough time in each day to get things done. Such a busy, busy month October was. I am ready for a more relaxing November.
Start building my portfolio for my new lifestyle approach. Blog before/after pics of our house. Get a session published on a wedding blog. Second shoot three weddings. Shoot my first senior session of the season! Brainstorm and coordinate another styled session. Have a “creative day” twice a month. Truly invest in my relationships.
Continue building portfolio for new lifestyle approach.Start shooting more with my film camera. I got a new film camera last week and I am so incredibly excited about this new adventure! Film is so inspiring and I can't wait to dig in! Get Christmas cards sent out. We are getting our photos taken this upcoming week! Can't wait to design and send out Christmas cards! Blog before/after pics of house. I promise these are coming soon! They will definitely come before we put Christmas decorations up! Celebrate Thanksgiving with Will's parents. I absolutely adore Will's parents. Being able to go hang out with them for a few days during Thanksgiving is like a retreat for Will and me. We absolutely love it! Get a session published on a wedding blog. Still waiting to find out the publish date! Find a Christmas tree and decorate for Christmas! This will be the 3rd annual Scott Family Christmas Tree Hunt (you can see last year's here). Every year we go chop down a tree in Elgin and bring it home. It is definitely one of my most favorite times of the year. Shoot one wedding. Start getting rebranding ready to launch in January. I am so excited to share my new look and new approach to lifestyle sessions with y'all! Shoot a styled session! Words can't describe my excitement for the styled session I have coming up toward the end of November. I can't wait to share! Have a "creative day" twice a month. I really need to get better at this. Last month it was so tough to get a couple of days in where I just did something completely creative whether it was a house project or painting or anything. This needs to be a priority. Truly invest in my relationships. This one will stay on my monthly goals because this is something that I should be doing on a regular basis.
November is going to be a super fun, busy month! What are some of your November goals?
