Bee-zee

Filtering was the key word of the week, filtering through deals for printing and frames, filtering through table cloths, backdrops and decor, through tons of photography and studio blogs, articles and posts for dos and don’ts. We filtered through tons of information and ideas, to get us on our A game and be prepared for what one would need for successful photography business vendor table.

So this week we have been working really hard, as the very first presentation of our photography business at the Prom Expo is fast approaching, we found out about it Monday  and it is happening this Sunday. So it was rather short notice but we couldn’t pass this great opportunity to advertise ourselves, set up a vendor table and meet prospective clients. After all, prom season will be upon us before you know it and with it – senior photo sessions. (For those new to my blog, I have started my business I long dreamed to start but never had time or courage, Thousand Words Photography, two weeks ago and we are trying to make things happen. By we I mean my very supportive husband who is also my partner, not only in life and in crime, but also in this business:)

Getting our first public presentation and vendor table/booth ready in less than a week, with an infant in the house, my husband’s full time job and our parental duties to our older kids, required a lot of dedication, working relentlessly and staying up really late. We are busy like the bees, or I should say bee-zee.

Filtering was the key word of the week, filtering through deals for printing and frames, filtering through table cloths, backdrops and decor, through tons of photography and studio blogs, articles and posts for dos and don’ts. We filtered through tons of information and ideas, to get us on our A game and be prepared for what one would need for successful photography business vendor table.

This week was full of picking out photos for my portfolio, designing signs and a banner and figuring out how to mount and display the 2×6 photo banner (since it was such short notice, banner was printed at local walmart and thus is on photo paper instead vinyl, which will be here in a few weeks). Managing all social media websites was rather challenging this week, as so much other stuff had to be done as a result I missed yesterday’s post and broke my “everyday post” rule.

Stay tuned, as I will be posting a compiled list of things you might need for setting up the vendor table if you are stating out photographer, artist or starting out anything for that matter. I promise it will be useful.

On a side note, I must say, I am so grateful for my husband taking on two websites, canvas ordering and technical tasks, is a life saver.

P.S.

Thank you to all my followers and readers for taking time to read, comment, like and otherwise give your feedback. It is greatly valued by us. Please keep us in your minds, share our blog or photos or spread the word as you deem fit.

Love to all.

 

 

Flowers on a random day

Ten

“I would rather have one daisy or a rose on a random Monday, every now and then, than a huge bouquet on a Valentine’s Day once a year. “

Flowers on a random day, beat grand gestures or expensive elaborate bouquets once a year. They don’t look and feel like obligations, they simply say “I thought of you”, “you are very special to me”, they are a random “I love you” without words.

They don’t need to be every day or every week or on particular schedule, they simply need to be. On a random day they are unexpected, a pleasant surprise, a splash of spring in the middle of cold winter a smile on a dreary day.

Flowers on a random day are a TEN and the giver is a keeper!

Glass of Blues

So if you are singing the blues today…cheers. This one is on me.

Oversight

This glass of blues I shall drink to the very bottom.

Oversight of what’s important, failure to notice and act upon what matters, can surely cost you, a lot and everything, everything and anything you hold dear. If it sounds all too familiar – pour yourself the glass of blues, taste it, savor it and own it! Drink it to the last drop and when there is no more blues left and no more oversight to regret, move on and move forward, with confidence and without fear. Oversights and moments of blues will happen for sure, but you’ll learn to appreciate those moments, like lessons to be learned, like advise from old friend, like bitter sobering truth, like old scars that tell the story.  Just remember this too shall pass, get up and keep moving forward.
