Happy New Year! 2016 seems to have flown past. It seemed like every weekend found David and me at a dog event. I know it wasn’t really that many, but some months came close.
The new year is just getting started, but I’m already making plans for this year’s photography goals. We have several events scheduled in January and February. March is almost full too! I do still have openings for studio photography. If your favorite pet needs his or her picture on your wall, now is the time to schedule a session.
A few of the jewelry pieces that we have offered in the past have been discontinued by my vendor. I am checking out their new items to see what we might pick up as replacements. Does anyone out there wear charm bracelets anymore? We do have the option of adding charms to the current necklace and pendant line-up. Comment below if you like the idea!
New items coming later this new year
I have some new ideas in the works. First, I will be taking a class on painting with Photoshop at the end of January. Can you imagine how much fun that will be? I can hardly wait to get started with that. We already offer a fun line of digital illustrations from agility, obedience and rally trial photos. Those were a big hit in 2016 and we will continue to offer them in 2017. I’m hoping to begin digital paintings from studio portraits later this year.
Education, education, education
As I said above, I’m taking a painting class at the end of the month. The month of January also includes my state photography convention in Covington. I always pick up some new tidbits to help improve my photography and sometimes I get ideas for a new product offering. The digital illustrations that I offer grew from a seminar I attended several years ago. Sometimes it takes a while for the seed to germinate into a product, but once it does – watch out!
