You guys, it’s already MAY!!

Can you believe that this year is already almost halfway over?!? I seriously can not think about that yet!

May is my favorite month because it’s my Birthday month!Hawaii Wedding Photographer _ Vanessa Hicks Photography

I won’t tell you how old I’m turning cause I’m getting up there!!

There’s a lot in store this month as this will be my first full official month in business here in sunny Hawaii! As I take a look back on April’s goals, between hotel living, moving into our home with military rental furniture, I will say that I am pretty happy with that I accomplished last month!

*Complete one hike- we did do Diamond Head and it was amazing!* Sent out postcards to family and friends*Documented a Week in the Life!*Finally moved into our new home* Ordered new business cards and I love them! Thank you!*Flew to Maryland for my first 2017 wedding*

While I did miss a few goals, that’s ok! I’m Happy with what I did do!

Now, it’s a new month, a new slate, and time to crush some new monthly goals!

May 2017 Goals


  • Unpack my house! While we got our stuff finally yesterday and I am so happy to be sleeping in our own comfy bed, we are surrounded with boxes! It’s like a maze in here! Want house to be completely unpacked by next month!
  • Start Spartan Race training! The Beast is in August!
  • Complete next hike! Wanting to do Koko Head and these Mermaid Caves next
  • Take Tatyana’s birthday pictures (we were rained out!)
  • Send out Mother’s Day cards and have them NOT be late! That’s a big one!



  • Head to Maui for an engagement session!
  • Book 2 weddings!
  • Get camera cleaned and serviced!
  • Work on styled shoot ideas!
  • Submit two sessions for publications

Not too bad right?

I think May is going to be an amazing month, I’m already putting it out there in the universe!

What are your goals for this month?
