Annual Performance Review 2016 – Year 4

It's hard to believe that 2016 is just about over. That means I've been a self-employed photographer for 4 years as of September. Time has certainly flown by, and I'm more energized for what lies ahead. For now, it's time for the annual performance review of what happened this year, and what's in store for

Monthly Highlights: August – October 2016

My Monthly Highlights series and blog as a whole have been on a bit of a hiatus lately, and for that, I sincerely apologize. So many life events (more on those below) have been happening that I hadn't even realized the last Monthly Highlights blog was published in July. As a result, this is a

Monthly Highlights: February 2016

Hard to believe we're nearly halfway though March already! After compiling my monthly statistics and metrics for February, it was pretty obvious in terms of the numbers that there weren't huge differences between January and February, other than a pretty big uptick in photo shoots. The beginning of the year is typically the slowest period of

Monthly Highlights: January 2016

If it hasn't been obvious by my last two blog posts and lack of a post last week, 2016 has been off to a rough start.
