Grand Opening…of sorts 

I didn’t get a chance to launch my business in an exciting way. I don’t have a store front so there wasn’t a grand opening event or anything. So, I have decided that I’m going to do a giveaway. It’s going to be a giveaway with a twist though. I’ll have more details available in a week or so when the giveaway goes live. 

You’ll see it first on our Facebook page so head over there and like the page to see it soon!

Grant = Project!

I am so excited to announce that I have been approved funding by the Columbia Kootenay Cultural Alliance for a project that I proposed earlier this year!

Throughout the next year I will be traveling to towns in the East Kootenay capturing photos specific to the project and then returning to those towns to display the final outcome. I will share details of the project soon (some details still need to be finalized) as I will need community participation.

I am so excited to take this on as a new business and someone who was born and raised in the area.

Grad Season

Was super busy with photo shoots today. Grad season is so much fun. It’s busy but everyone is so happy and kids are so excited. It’s been a wonderful, optimistic day filled with sentimental family and so much laughter. 
Will share soon!

Starting a Business

I find this whole endeavour really interesting. I’ve decided to go with a business that doesn’t have a lot of overhead. I don’t have a store front or office hours which means no rent or fixed schedule. It’s wonderful! However, it also means no one can drop in to see me. No one sees my name and thinks “whats this? Maybe I should check it out.” Instead I have to keep getting myself out there online and in the community so people start realising I’m here. This is difficult when you have no clients. It can also be discouraging and is definitely draining but it’s also exciting. There are so many opportunities available. It’s just finding them or making them happen.

I’ve decided to write a to-do list as well as 101 in 1001 list. Things to work on and to work towards – goals. Without those I’ll probably end up going nowhere. If you haven’t heard of 101 in 1001 it’s a list of 101 things you’d like to complete in 1001 days. Dream big and more than 101 things will happen in those days.

Feeling a little discouraged today but I know it’s just part of getting to success.

Cheers,

Package in the mail!

When I got home today there was a little brown box shoved in my mailbox. I couldn’t guess what it was and of course I didn’t bother reading the label. It was stuck. I couldn’t get it out! When I finally did I instantly knew what it was by the way it fell into my hands – my business cards! 10 days early.
