So this has not been my best blogging month. Honestly I have just gotten a little burnt out. I was feeling guilty about my terrible blogging, but my mom informed me that this is a good time to take a break since this is my slow part of the year. She is a firm believer that I blog every one of my sessions, and that my clients appreciate the sneak peeks. I absolutely agree with her, but it is important for me to blog for myself too, and that is why stepping away from the blog for a bit gives me the chance to miss it, and to come back with new blogging ideas. I also don't want this blog to be all about "sneak peeks." I want it to be a place for clients to get to know me before their session, and to stay in touch with me long after their session.
Anyways....today's post is really random. I will be sharing what I was working on this weekend soon, (I am really excited to finish editing those) but until then here is what I have been up to lately. The below photos are all iphone photos. I am obsessed with this phone! My hubby completely surprised me with what I think is the best gift ever for Christmas. I am still trying to master the camera, but I love using it to document my everyday life. (For more iphone photos follow me on instagram at whitneylinphoto)
I always feel the need to freshen up my branding at the start of a new year, and below are my new folded wedding business cards. I feel like I still need my basic card to hand out all the time, but these are great for potential wedding clients. On another note, I am almost completely booked for Summer 2012 weddings. It is a great feeling, and I even set aside a few weekends just for fun. However, I always have a tough time turning couples away, and I find myself wanting to overextend myself. One day I am set on not booking anymore summer weddings, and the next day, I am wondering if I could squeeze in a few more. I will happily squeeze in weekday weddings, but my available weekends are very limited.
Earlier this month a bunch of my family met in Billings to watch the Fairbanks Nanooks play MSUB. My uncle coaches in Fairbanks, and since I was in Eastern Montana for Christmas, it was nice to see the Alaska crew as well as my parents, grandma, sister, cousins, and some other friends.
Kev and I in Billings.
Miles City finally got some snow last week. This is our home covered in fresh snow on a very grey day.
I have so many photos of miss penny it is ridiculous.
Penny and Kevin reunited after a week apart. Kevin was gone for work then Penny and I were in Three Forks for the weekend so the second we got out of the car she was on the 4-wheeler plowing our drive-way with him.
