Making my 2016 dreams come true


Over the past couple of months, I’ve been thinking about all the things I want to accomplish. It had me thinking that I really need to set a list of dreams in order to make them come true. My life has been chaotic the past year and I’m excited to slow things down and work on me. I decided that if you don’t hold yourself accountable, how will you ever succeed. Here are a couple items I want to accomplish this coming year. Some bigger than others, but all are attainable in my eyes.

  1. Destination Wedding – travelling has forever been close to my heart. You cannot put a value on experiencing what the world has to offer. What would be better than travelling the world? Photographing a wedding in one of those destinations. Hawaii is number one on the list, followed by Italy and than Greece. If you, or someone you know is planning a destination wedding – I would love to chat with you/them.
  2. Island Lake Lodge – last weekend my friend took me to Island Lake Lodge in Fernie, BC and I absolutely fell in love! This place is beyond beautiful and photographing mountain weddings is the direction I want to one day take my business in. With this bucket list item, come a goal of learning to hike. One day, I might be able to call myself a hiker.
  3. Be featured on a blog – as it is probably every photographers dream, being featured on a blog is such an amazing accomplishment. This year I will do everything in my power to try and be featured on a blog. I love my work and am confident I will find the perfect blog that will fit my style of shooting.
  4. Branding – with a new last name, comes a new look! I want to completely rebrand Miranda Weston Photography, although I am not changing my business name. A entire facelift is needed and a dear friend of mine and owner/designer at Jraedesigns is helping my vision come to life! I can’t wait to share with you what we have in store.
  5. Elopement – there is something an elopement that drags me in deeper. It is something I have always wanted to be apart of, and photographing one would be a dream come true! I love when I see couples choosing elopements because ultimately the day is about the two of you.
  6. Proposal – photographing a proposal has to be number one on my to-do list! One of my favorite parts of my engagement is I have pictures to take me back to that moment everyday. Hire a photographer to document one of the best days of your life. It will be worth it, I promise. Your significant other will be over the moon.
  7. Complete my lens collection – the long list of lenses I want is never ending but I do have 2 more I want to add this year. The 35mm  1.4 and the 50mm 1.4. Christmas ideas anyone? Just kidding… Maybe… Not really!
  8. Blog – this summer I fell off the blog wagon with being so busy with life. I want to try and post at least one blog post per week. Sharing different ideas, sessions, featuring different artists and locals. Stay tuned to see whats to come.
  9. Home office – I want to complete my home office. Surrounding myself with natural light, work I am proud of and a good work environment. This is one of our winter projects for when it gets cold outside.

Do you often set goals and write bucket lists for yourself? If so, I would love to hear whats on yours!

Thanks for visiting.
