Finding Time For Photography When You Feel You Have No Time At All

Oh, how I hear you mama.  You feel like every minute of the day is planned and filled even before you step out of bed in the morning.  You feel like squeezing in a little time for yourself is a stretch, let alone making time for photography.  And while it seems like finding time for…

Monthly Goal Setting : Things I Do Daily, Weekly and Monthly To Create Balance

We have all heard of that magical word: BALANCE.  The concept of balance can be such a struggle that many have come to the opinion that balance doesn’t truly exist.  Can we really balance multiple things so that our heart feels fulfilled in all areas of our life?  While some question it’s possibility, I believe…

  • Shauna | Linden & Lavender - This is quite a helpful post. 2019 is the first time that I have ever written down any goals (which are in a book in a drawer). But, I love the idea of revisiting them and having them broken down into monthly, weekly and daily goals. Thank you for providing your examples. ReplyCancel

    • {beth} a-dilly - That’s wonderful! Yes, I think having them out and visible is a really wonderful way to always check in with your goals.ReplyCancel

  • Catherine - Thank you for explaining this:)  I also like to label things by year and then by month but I do it in folders rather than catalogues so I may have to change this since it means everything is in the one spot.  I really struggle with the fact that I have all of my photos on my computer and now no space to store any more:(  Do you export yours somewhere else also?  And when your computer is getting full do you delete photos?  I would be really interested in your approach to photo storage:)ReplyCancel

    • {beth} a-dilly - Hello Catherine! I am definitely trying out the labeling this year and, since my catalogs are organized by year, I am going to label by month: event. Such as FEBRUARY: VALENTINES. Can’t wait to see if I like it! When it comes to photo storage, I never delete files. Here is a post I wrote about how I store photos to keep them safe http://bethadilly.com/the-ultimate-photo-storage-solution/. Enjoy!ReplyCancel

      • Catherine - Thank you for explaining that for me I do appreciate it:)  I will most definitely be getting a new storage system for backing up but what to do with my computer…. I have no more room for all of my gorgeous family pics:(ReplyCancel

        • {beth} a-dilly - You are so welcome! Happy to inspire and help! And yes, make room for more photos of your beautiful family!ReplyCancel

Timeless Photo Albums: Printing Photo Books For Your Children

My children are the reason why I pick up my camera.  Even before they were born and before I even knew them, I picked up my camera and documented our life for them.  Photographs are incredibly important and powerful to me.  Someone recently said that a story only lasts about 2 generations before it is…
