i know it’s a week in but since this is officially our first blog post of 2014…happy new year you guys!
the new year always holds the promise of fresh starts and clean slates. for someone as OCD as me, it’s the perfect time to come back from the holidays, fully recharged and ready to throw myself headfirst into a never-ending list of personal and professional goals. sometimes that list can get a little, well, ambitious to say the least. which is probably partially why i have a difficult time keeping up with all (or any for that matter!) of those goals past january. even so, each new year i can’t help but get excited by the prospect of change and all that i aim to accomplish and improve upon from the months past.
this year, along with my standard “workout at least 4 times a week”, at least half of that list is made up of professional goals for (m+a) photography. some are realistic and some maybe not so much, but every little thing on there stands for the hopes and dreams of who we are and what we might be able to do if we simply tried. as we enter our third year of officially being in business, we’ve looked back and realized there have been several times we’ve fallen, times we’ve made mistakes. we’ve had successes and failures, high points and low, and it’s been a difficult journey with plenty of getting lost along the way: lost in worrying about what everyone else is doing and what everyone else thinks we should be doing. but in the process, we’ve learned so much valuable information about ourselves and what we want this business of ours to be that simply couldn’t have been taught any other way. we still have a long ways to go. but now that we’ve reached a place where we know what we stand for, we can start moving in the right direction because it’s what we believe in. and as a result, 2014 is bringing some pretty big changes to the (m+a) brand.
we’re still in the process of working out all the little details and it will likely be a while before we can share the specifics. but we promise, it’ll be worth the wait and hope you’ll follow along. for now, we’re toasting to 2014 being filled with plenty of dreaming big, taking risks and blossoming into one of the best years ever!
cheers to 2014!
