Happy New Year!

Posted by TaraD in Tara Donoghue Photography

So as most face the first week back at work / school / college ready to face a new year, what are your plans for 2015?

Ours are….

To create a new website showing more of what we do, who we are etc (which you are hopefully reading this post on!)

To officially bring Dave on board to the team (I know it’s about time to acknowledge all the hard work that he does in the background!).

To spend more time with my family!!!!

To allow more time to get the creative juices flowing and refreshing the batteries (away from the computer!)

So as my foot has been firmly to the floor over the past number of years working extremely hard to build up our clients, to keep learning and up skilling and to be better and better each year. My New Years resolution is to slow down 🙂

Easier said than done for a workaholic writing this post at 1am! Don’t worry you will see just as many fabulous weddings, (if not more!) but my life/work balance will be hopefully be more balanced!!! I will attempt to do what very few self employed (working from home business people can do) and work to an almost reasonable office hour schedule (obviously this only includes my editing admin time and not shoots and weddings!). This takes extreme discipline and I’m hoping I can achieve it.

In return my son won’t be asking me to “look at him and not the computer” as I will be finished work when he is home. I won’t be missing out on the moments of life that we can never get back.

From talking to so many people lately they are feeling overwhelmed by the pressures of daily life and organising a wedding is a massive stress.

In order to keep things in perspective, I have found the perfect quote which is particularly relevant for us in Kerry ☺…..

“Stop worrying about the potholes in the road and celebrate the journey.” Fitzhugh Mullan

Until next time ☺ Tara xxx
