2017 Goal Accomplishment | Utah County Photographer

As I planned out 2017 for my business, I wrote down all the goals that I wanted to be able to accomplish this year to grow my business. One of my goals was to get my work good enough to be at least featured by a photography blog or organization. 

On my photography Instagram account, I follow so many amazing photographers that I look up to and want to become like one day, and also many photography business/organizations that feature talented photographers work and help them show off their work to more people. This helps photographers gain credibility as a photographer. I have always dreamed of getting one of my images chosen to be featured on these blogs/accounts. 

Well, as you have probably seen if you follow me, I recently have had TWO of my images featured on the Life and Lens Blog. You guys, TWO! My goal was to only get featured at least once this year (because it's really hard to get featured) but already I have had two different images from this year featured. You should have seen my happy/shocked/in denial dance I did when I found out my image was featured. Seriously a dream come true haha. 

I know this is probably something that happens to big time photographers on a daily basis, and it's no big deal, but to me it was a huge deal. It helps me feel like I have come a long ways from when I first started doing photography and that all the hard work and long hours I have put into my work and creating a business is finally starting to go somewhere.
