Welcome back to my blog! It's the start of a new year and I'm excited by what 2012 is going to bring. Colin and I had a relaxing little break in Dingle over Christmas and lots of time planning the year ahead. As I mentioned at the end of 2011 there are some changes being made to the Brosnan Photographic brand. While most of you already know that for some time I've been only photographing weddings and engagements, I'm officially announcing that I will no longer be taking on portrait clients. The new site that is set to launch within the next couple months will be primarily for couples getting married. I strongly believe in focusing my talents on one area of photography. Secondly, Colin will be stepping down from his role behind the scenes. Sure he'll be there for my support and as my advice guru but over the past year or so I've been able to take on handling every aspect of the business.
2012 is a big year for me. I can't believe I'll be turning 30! Crazy! We also hope to take some much needed long holidays together this year including London for the Paralympics. As I mentioned in my last post of 2011 I'm collaborating on a big project that for now is hush hush but all going well I hope to reveal soon. It's something to keep me busy and in the wedding mood during this quieter season. Being passionate about photography and the wedding industry, I try to work on a new project every year. Having a side project keeps me driven and motivated. It may not always be a success but the failed attempts make me work harder next time. That's why I like starting projects at the beginning of a year. It feels like a fresh start.
This year I will also be implementing a few business changes. With some serious consideration I've decided not to book weddings over the Christmas/New Year period. Colin and I have decided that we want to take this time of the year for ourselves. It's the opportune time for us to travel. I also want to officially announce that I will only take a maximum of 40 weddings per year. Limiting the number of weddings per year allows me adequate time to spend with editing, meetings, engagement shoots, and really focusing on each of my couples. I aim to provide a high quality service to my clients and I feel limiting the number of weddings per year allows me the time I need to achieve this. Currently I am over half booked for 2012 so please do get in touch if you're interested in booking for this year.
I am so excited by the prospects of this year! And I can't wait to share with you all on my blog over the coming months. There are still some lovely shoots, weddings and travels to share from 2011 but for now I'll leave you with a sneak peek of one of my Christmas weddings. Here's to a new beginning!
