November 2014 Goals

{photo credit: Glessner Photography}

I’ve been an on and off goal setter type of person. I believe goals are SO IMPORTANT but I often get overwhelmed by them. Anyone with me?

This past week I attended an amazing conference with a beyond amazing community of women. The experience was a huge leap of faith for me and it was worth it. One of my biggest takeaways was knowing the “why” behind my goals and dreams. I am still processing everything, but I will share more about my Making Things Happen experience next week so be sure you check back in!

Today I wanted to share with you my goals. Mostly because I want to have a place where I can document them and be able to look back and see how far I have come in the years ahead and for accountability. My goal is to post my goals each month here. It is so scary to say that because while I actually love blogging, I have to really fight to make the time to do it. But I don’t want to regret not documenting my life. So here’s to imperfect progress!

Sweet Emory {Charlotte Newborn Baby Photographer}

Behind every image you see is a story. An experience.

Just over a year ago I took a deep look at Madison Lane Photography and realized that there was so much more to this business than grabbing my camera and showing up a pretty park taking a few pictures for my clients. Sure, we got some amazing images, but something was missing. Many times I walked away from sessions feeling like I wanted more time to get to know the people who were in front of my camera.  There is so much more heart to what we do. We want to tell your family’s story. We want to get to know YOU. What gets you excited, what makes your family’s heart beat…..

We have implemented so many new changes for MLP over this past year and many more are in the works. Not only are we now delivering a much more meaningful product, but also a memorable experience. I am so thankful for the opportunity to get to know so many families and call them new friends. What a blessing!

This newborn photography session was so special to me. We loved getting to know this family and sweet baby girl was just to die for. Thank you Brittney and Zach for the honor of capturing those oh-so-special first days with your Emory. Enjoy your new family of 3!
