This year it's about you!
Crash! You see your daughter's bowl of goldfish falling even before you hear the explosion, before you feel the tiny crackers all around your bare feet, and all over the homework project that your 11 year old has sprawled out all over the kitchen table. Crumbs everywhere, one kid crying, one yelling over ruined work, still another picking and eating dirty goldfish off the floor. It's just been one of those days. Another one of those days. So why in the world would you take time out of your insanely busy day to read a JLP blog post that has nothing to do with you, and does nothing to help improve those crazy days?
That's exactly what I've realized this past month. As a mom, I've got no time for blog posts, or Pinterest articles, or Candy Crush on FB. If it's not going to help me as a mom, or as a professional, or as a woman, I can't fit it in. But show me something that can help me make dinner faster, can help me improve my 5K pace, or that can give me ideas on how to improve my marriage, family, or self image, and I'm all over it.
And so that's what I hope to give you here.
In my true Type A personality, I've decided to do this in a structured and organized fashion. This way you know what's coming on what day! At least that is my intention!
This year we are going to focus on story telling. After all that's what I specialize in right? Telling stories through portraiture!
Blogs will come three times a week. Mondays are "Your Story". That is when I offer tips on photographing your family, celebrating your kids with your camera, how to relax (with or without your camera), and more. Mondays are for you.
Wednesdays will be "Their Story". These are days when I share the stories of my amazing clients. I have the best clients in the world and I love sharing their stories and their images. These days are for them.
And Fridays will be "My Story". This is when I open up my home and my family to you. I'm excited for the challenge to capture my life in pictures for you. Ironically, I rarely take snapshots of my family anymore so this will be fun for me, and hopefully for you too.
Now I need your help! I'd love to know what you'd love to hear about! What posts would you like to see? What can I offer you to make your photography or your days better? Comment below and let's compile a list together!
I can't wait to get started!
