The Goals

June 2011

These “Goal” Posts


are really NOT my favorite posts to write. It means I have to admit what I haven’t accomplished and come up with more “to-do’s” for the upcoming month! Ah! I feel like I’ve been behind for two months. Everything for the business is up to date as far as editing and emails and blogging (well the albums are slowly getting there!) However, keeping LIFE going and the business running is a full time, all day-everyday job. It’s hard to find time to just sit down and create our “Wedding Video”….

I hate driving while Michael is in the passenger seat.  One little jerk of the wheel and he can’t fall asleep because he’s scared for his life.  I’m really not THAT bad of a driver.  My husband actually deserves a lot of credit for this shoot.

Clare and Matt live in NYC but are getting married in Richmond so they would be down in VA every now and then for wedding planning appointments. It made sense to shoot here…. but then I had a crazy idea and after running it past Michael, I asked Clare if we could come to THEM!
