has the big picture planner changed your life?

The Big Picture Planner will make 2014 your year! Ute Muller of Fotoart Photography shares, "I purchased The Big Picture Planner to stay focused on my tasks, goals and dreams for 2014 and beyond. It is a fabulous planner which can be customized to suit my needs. I resized all the pages I wanted to a 5.5x8.5" size to accommodate a smaller 1 1/2" binder. The smaller binder works better for me as I wanted something compact and easy to carry around. I also created two more sections: 'My Dreams' and 'Styled Session, Prop and Studio Ideas'. For the 'My Dreams' section I customized one of the goal sheets and filled it with my personal bucket list items. And maybe one of these days I will be able to check them off one after the other. The 'Styled Session, Prop and Studio Ideas' is filled with future ideas and inspiration for styled sessions and drawings/pictures of possible props, and pages filled with Pinterest images I liked to inspire me for studio and outdoor sessions.

Before I had the planner, all my ideas, to do's, inspirations and dreams were spread all over books, sticky notes and on my iPad. Now, everything found a home in my planner. The first thing I open in the morning is my iPad AND my planner. I can easily see what needs to be done that day and what I need to do to reach some of my higher goals/dreams. It keeps me focused on my business and personal tasks for the day and there is nothing more satisfying than to check of an item on the daily and monthly to do list.

With the help of the planner I can also work towards higher goals and dreams which seemed to be unreachable before. Breaking these down into smaller steps make them achievable over time. One of my favorite pages is the 'suggested monthly tasks'. Most of the tasks I do know, but if they are not right in front of me, they are easily forgotten or pushed aside. I also like the personal tasks. My favorite is 'Buy Flowers for your Desk'. That is one task to lift up my spirit for the day. Thank you Design Aglow Team for being so inspirational and keeping me on track for the future, both for my business and personal life."

I recently travelled to Banff, Alberta on a spontaneous trip with another filmmaker, Mike, and we spent one week exploring around the national park. The trip was planned a week before we left. My friend flew from LA and met me in Vancouver and we began our 10 hour road trip.I recently travelled to Banff, Alberta on a spontaneous trip with another filmmaker, Mike, and we spent one week exploring around the national park. The trip was planned a week before we left. My friend flew from LA and met me in Vancouver and we began our 10 hour road trip.

What we do, as photographers, matters; and it matters a lot. What do people want to save when a house is burning down, being overtaken by a flood, or threatened by a tornado; what is the one possession people always hope to grab? Their photos; their irreplaceable family memories. Memories matter, and it's up to us as photographers to make sure that we capture their best selves. How do we do that? The experience.
