Obviously it is important to build on shooting skills as a photographer. There should be an constant effort to produce better and better images. i am a business person as well, so i also have to have a concrete business plan and marketing strategy... or so I'm learning!
I have been scouring the net looking for resources to help me establish the frame work I feel I need. There is a decent amount of info but not a lot of hands on resources that are free or cheep. What I have found though is pretty amazing!(links at bottom of page)
My hope is that in 2013 I will not only be a better and more confident photographer but that I will also be a smarter more organized business woman.

You make the best of it! First family session I have had in ages and my nerves were a mess! I have shot this family's beautiful little girl before but not them all together. Dad is army and home on R&R for two weeks only so there really wasn't an option to change the date. I had to nail it weather be darned! Ended up with the most beautiful defused light! It was to die for! The wet ground and benches not so much but heck, can't have it all right?! I can not wait to get these images polished!
