Following on from my lengthy post about organising kiddo artwork, here's a quick peek behind the scenes here at LIFE:CAPTURED Inc:
ONE // Trish and I had the most wonderful photo shoot at her place about three weeks ago. I wanted us to create some new imagery for upcoming blog posts, and we managed to check off all the shots I had on my list, and all within a couple of hours! Trish is seriously one of the most efficient people I know. I also got to meet her gorgeous Lukey, and he even featured in a couple of our shots!
TWO // Speaking of blogging, I had a rather productive Tuesday at 'my office' and actually managed to work out the next five weeks worth of content. The plan is to publish three posts a week. No matter what people might say, I'm a big believer in blogging as a form of communication and a medium for engagement, hence our commitment to quality content creation.
THREE // We wrapped up Session 1 of our online classes for this year a few weeks ago, and Trish and I are both floored by some of the amazing work that our students did. I especially loved seeing all the InDesign layouts that my class sent in as part of their weekly homework exercises. And just take a look at this photo captured by one of Trish's students! Thank you guys for being such an awesome group of students. Registration for Session 2, which begins on 1 June, is now open.
FOUR // Preparations for our signature workshop in May are now underway! So excited to be hosting our event at this gorgeous venue. Thank you for having us, Zoe! We have one or two seats left, so if you're free on Saturday 30 May and would like to join us, you can sign up here.
FIVE // Along with everything else, we're currently working on a couple of exciting new ideas, which we will share as soon as we can. And I might as well admit that I've been entertaining fantasies of setting up a collaborative creative studio and have even started scouring real estate sites for industrial warehouses that I can convert into a sleek studio haven. A girl can dream, right?
SIX // You may already have seen this on Instagram, but I've spent the last week editing and curating my personal photos for The Shoemaker's Daughter, and as a result, I am feeling creatively refreshed and replenished. It's been an interesting journey these last six months, juggling the three-prong act of spending time with my family, running a new business, and pursuing my personal creative endeavours. All three seem to meld into each other, and I am gradually learning that it's okay to step back from one or more of the three in order to feed the parts of me that need replenishing. I am a better wife and mum when I've enjoyed some solitude spent writing and journaling. I'm a better writer and memory keeper when I have actually spent time making memories and relishing time with my family. I am a better blogger and businesswoman when I know I am not neglecting my personal life and creative endeavours...
What have you guys been up to?
