2 New Pet Portraits

Today I am posting Bandit & Kam to the blog. These two pets had great photos to work with and I really enjoyed playing around with their art. I think I am actually caught up on orders as of today ... yay... happy dance! I have around 10 pending approvals and only 3 pet portraits to work on next week. I do have plenty on my plate however I do not feel at all overwhelmed or behind on anything. That is such a rare feeling ... to actually be 100% in control of the work flow.

If the sunshine continues I hope to send Lola to the dog park today to shoot for a blog we have started updating again. Check out our Dallas Dog Park Blog. It is just a fun photography blog of random pups we meet at the park.

Lovely portraits Rebecca! Must feel real good to be 100% in control! I want some of that!

Rebecca said...

OMG it feels so good and I know it won't last. I have given up on ever being totally ahead of my work and now I can enjoy the moments when I can say I have it all under control.

If you think about it finishing all projects and having nothing to do should not be a goal at all ... "being caught up" ... now that is something you can do occasionally.

100% control comes with success I assume! The more in demand you are, the less people want to push your buttons I bet.


Sheila said...

Oh, one more thing. Thank you Rebecca for your advice on my dilemma in dealing with demanding clients. That is why you're such a success and sane!

Hey there Lilly, Piper, Carrleigh and Java...thanks so much for stopping by and thanks for the praise.

Sheila ... I dunno about people not wanting to push my buttons, but after 11 years I think I am getting better at both listening to my clients and also setting boundaries. You have to know when to be flexible and when to protect your time and yea your sanity.
