May 2015 Photography Goals



April Review

April was an amazing month for Strouse Photography! We had two weddings and an engagement shoot in addition to some new organization solutions from Closet Factory (read about that here)!

We also finished the following goals:

  • *COMPLETED* Get Strouse Photography closet organized with Closet Factory (read about that here)!

  • *COMPLETED* Switch to new photo sharing website - already started! We are now using Pixieset and I am OBSESSED WITH IT! It makes our pictures POP and it's so much easier to use than our last photo sharing website! Take a look now by visiting client.strousephotography.com!

We are still working on the following goals:

  • *IN PROGRESS* Created 3 more photo books for promotional purposes

  • ​How to accomplish:

  • Pick Event

  • Pick Photo Book Company

  • Make Book

  • UPDATES: I ended up making a book of a recent engagement session with Blurb and was happy with the process. It turned out WONDERFUL! Take a look at the cover on our instagram here. I've also reordered some books I made last year in leather so they'll hold up longer in client meetings. They look legit! LOVE THEM!

  • *IN PROGRESS* Edit weddings on time - I am still on track for my internal deadlines and in a good place with my 60-90 day turnaround!

  • How to accomplish:

  • Stick to workflow

  • Stick to schedule

  • Catch up on non-wedding weekend

MAY GOALS FOR STROUSE PHOTOGRAPHY:​

  • Stick to work schedule that has been typed out so you can spend time with Brad, doing house projects and more!

  • Finish two weddings in my workflow tunnel

  • Finish bridal sessing in my workflow

This month is all about staying on top of my workflow and editing goals to ensure a speedy delivery for our clients! We basically set 3 goals when it comes to turnaround time for our clients. Our first goal is our "stretch goal" meaning it's possible to meet that goal, but it's a stretch. Our second goal is our internal "always meet it" goal meaning I try to get pictures turned around in that time frame. Our third goal is our "absolute deadline" goal meaning this is the turnaround time we promised our clients so we have to meet it.

How can we meet our goals better and more efficiently? Let us know your tips in the comments below!

Thanks for reading and tell us your goals!

- Allie & Brad
