My 3 Biggest Photography Goals

My first blog post… finding the perfect topic was hard for me. Let me just say, starting a blog is intimidating! I decided to share with you my goals in photography, 1 project that I’ve been working towards, a precious piece of advice turned into a mantra, and my dream wedding to photograph. Enjoy!

1. 50 People Project
The 50 People Project is not my own brilliant idea, but one I would really like to complete. My version of it – I would like to photograph and interview 50 veterans. Military has been a big part of my life even before I became an Army wife. My father is military, both of my grandfathers, and I have cousins who have been involved in various branches of service. Hearing my grandpa’s stories from Korea is a big part of this inspiration. I hope to talk to veterans from several different branches and several different generations and hear all of their incredible experiences. In my opinion their service is so underappreciated and I would love to highlight all of the amazing things they have done for our country. If you know anyone who may be interested in participating please feel free to e-mail me at leibfarthphotography@gmail.com




2. Never stop improving
Thank my mama for this one folks. About a year ago we were at a restaurant in Boston, the manager came around asking us to fill out a survey. While I’m busy giving them 5 stars on everything (the food was AMAZING) I noticed my mom giving 3-4 stars. I asked her why when the food and service was fantastic and her response stuck with me. She said “If they get 5 stars there is no room for improvement, you should always have something to work towards.” I will never ever forget that. No matter how much I learn, no matter how good my work is there is always MORE. More than I can learn, more that I can improve on, things that I can do better. With that push I know I can do anything. I will never stop learning, never stop pushing myself, never stop working hard to be the best I can be. I posted this comparison on my Facebook page last week and it fits in here perfectly. I have changed so much in two years and hope the next two years bring even more improvement. 




3. Shoot in paradise
And finally… my dream wedding to photograph! A destination wedding in a tropical location! Oh how I want to photograph a beautiful beach wedding! Where everyone is barefoot on the beach, just close friends and family enjoying a small intimate ceremony. It would be such an honor to be chosen to travel with a couple on such an adventure. In my mind, the moment I am asked to do a destination wedding will be my “I’ve made it!” moment! Even without the exotic destination though, weddings are where I feel happiest. I am giddy all day sharing in a couple’s joy. Every detail – the rings, the dress, the flowers, centerpieces, cake, the venue…. every single piece of that day was carefully planned and I love seeing how their dream comes together. Truthfully every wedding is my “dream wedding” and I am thrilled for every single one that I am blessed to capture.
