Make no little plans; they have no magic to stir men’s blood
Just over a week ago, I held our studio grand opening, and it was successful beyond my wildest dreams. If you follow me at all, you know that I often speak of being intentional in all that you do, whether its a lens choice, interactions with clients, all of it matters and all of your small steps add up to a bigger picture if you are intentional and set inspirational goals. The kind of goals that give you goosebumps. And the kind of laser focus intention that removes internal barriers and self doubt. For me, the opening of my studio is just that, a big audacious goal that I pursued with intention for a long time. All in, including the building of our home, where my studio resides, it was a four year process. I sat and planned and dreamed of the ideal house, in the best location, and it happened. When we moved in, I didn’t rush the process, but I played with ideas and concepts, watched the light in the basement play out day in and day out over two seasons. And I never stopped planning, imaging and working towards my goal. I still have that ratty piece of paper hanging up on my cork board where I wrote down my goals for that year, and right under “Be on a Billboard in New York Times Square” , and “Teach a photography course internationally” was “Build an incredibly successful in home photography studio”. All of it was intentional. And all of it happened. I am thrilled to share with you all the little bits and thoughts and plans that went into making my studio a reality. From concept to execution. From dreams to reality. With a lot of intention, inspirational goals and a ton of hard work, anything can happen….
