Seasons Are Changing: Three Things You Might Want to Do about It.

I am genuinely confused as to why there are pumpkins in the photos I'm editing today.

I mean, it's not uncommon for me to have pumpkins of the pinchable-cheek variety in front of my lens, but where did the orange ones come from?  Isn't it still summer?  (And by that I mean, like, summer of '99??)

Come to think of it--I think I have a science project due--TODAY!  [Brief panic.]

Unfortunately, the person who said that "time flies like an arrow, fruit flies like a banana" was not only a lover of similes and wordplay; s/he was also correct.

The time, it is a-flyin'.

With that in mind, here are three things you might want to do about it TODAY:

1)  Revisit your resolutions.

It is not too late to make sure that your 2013 New Year's Resolutions don't have to be the same resolutions you made in 2012.

But soon it will be too late.

Get on it.

2)  Plan or book a photo shoot.

Don't shoot the messenger, but it's time to plan your holiday card photos.

I have a very limited number of sessions available for Oct/Nov, so if you are interested in doing a shoot with me this fall, please contact me sooner than later so that I can make sure to fit you in.

My pricing will be changing as of next Friday (October 5), and after that time, I will be focusing more on print sales than on the sale of digital files.  Therefore, if you are interested in a digital file package, consider scheduling a session now, as the price of digital files will be increasing significantly.

(Sessions after 10/5 can retain my current rate, so long as we agree on a date before the 10/5 deadline.)

3)  Get happy.

Hey, are you happy?  If not, what's holding you back?  When are you going to do something about it?

There are any number of great ways to approach these questions - leave a comment below if you need ideas.  The class I've been TA'ing/taking with Mastin Kipp this week (available now as audio files via the en*theos academy) would be a great place for anybody to start.

Frankly, I don't care HOW you figure out how to tackle whatever is holding you back.  I just care that you DO.



Thoughts?  I love to hear from you!  Leave a comment below (you can now do so anonymously if preferred), or let's strike up a convo on the Catching the Light Facebook page.  Or tweet me!

 (Regarding Twitter, I just recently figured out what all the fuss was about.  Now I love tweeting.  Tweet!!)
