Here's a quick couple of things that are going on at the moment: school is back for the 2016 year and while I'm part time again this year, this time I'm job-sharing a teaching load. What this means is that I have full days off instead of still having to go in to teach every weekday (starting later/finishing earlier, etc.) It's much (much) more productive and allows me to focus a lot better on whatever it is that I'm doing on a particular day. I can put all my energy into doing what needs to be done at school when I'm there and the same for days off when I work on photography-related tasks. So far, I feel less like I'm rushing around like the proverbial headless chook and more like I'm getting stuff done. Phew!
Speaking of photography-related things, I have updated my packages and pricing for family photography and social media & event photography for the year. There are some significant changes there, which are the beginnings of some more changes I hope to implement either later this year or sometime in 2017. I'm aware that all sounds a bit mysterious and vague - but I'll be able to share more about what's happening at a later date.
Still on the topic of photography, I have some of my favourite Instagrams from last year available to purchase as unframed prints. You can see details and buy one (or more, go nuts!) here. There's only one of each print available - so you know you're getting something that no-one else has; pretty rare in this day and age.
I've had some unexpected quality family time recently as well. A fortnight ago I got to meet my little baby cousin, who is pretty darn cute. I think I was her favourite. We had a family lunch at mum and dad's, which included catching up with aunties and uncles from mum's side of the family. Unfortunately an uncle on my father's side of the family passed away in the same week. He had been unwell for quite some time but it's always still a bit of a shock when it happens, isn't it? The silver lining of that sad cloud was that my brother and sister came down from Brisbane for the funeral in Hobart, and we all got to see our cousins from that side of the family (we've always been the "Tasmanian cousins" and they've always been the "Melbourne cousins".) We figured out that it had been at least twenty years (twenty!) since we'd all last seen each other. We've promised each other it definitely won't be that long next time. In spite of the reason for the unplanned reunion between us all, it was so nice to see them and find out how they've been going. It's amazing how one week has the ability to really bring home how lucky we are to have each day we're given. (Apologies if that sounds cliched!)
And that's pretty much it for the moment. I have some client work coming up in the next few months that I'm really excited about and will hopefully be able to share some of it here with you soonish.
Hmmm. That was less quick than I originally intended! How does that happen?
