The week between Christmas and New Years for me is always a very nebulous time. Days and time are fairly meaningless and I seem to sleep a lot, and read and watch movies.
It did have one shoot that week, and it was a big deal because she needed new photos for an article in a magazine this month. Robin called and booked this shoot weeks ago.
Last December I have gotten so many phone calls from folks needing family portraits on exactly December 26th at 9am. Or one call from a person on a Thursday who was going to be featured in a magazine and needed to come in Saturday. In December. There’s just no way. December Saturdays have been booked for a while now.
It breaks my heart when I can’t help people with my favorite thing to do. It’s missed opportunity for all of us. And it’s just because these people didn’t plan ahead.
If you’re hustling in your business, I can guarantee you’re going to have a cool opportunity in 2024. You can prepare for it by having headshots and business photography ready to go. (Book your shoot now.) OR don’t, and prepare for panic and scramble and rushing when this thing goes down. And I hope that the panic and scramble and rushing work out, and you don’t miss out altogether. One way or another, things will happen.
As we roll into 2024, what are you preparing for? You are a bright beautiful light in this world. Will you take the steps to share it? Or will you hide and pretend we won’t notice?
PS – if a full on branding shoot is more than you can handle right now, get in for a quick Headshot Mini Session. Start 2024 with a couple photos you love ready to go.
