I am quickly coming up on my 2 1/2 year mark as a professional photographer. A lot has changed - mostly with me and my style and my experience. As time goes by, I am finding there are some sessions I just completely enjoy more than others. The goal in life is to do something for a living where you don't have to work a day in your life. Right?!?! Well, I'm finding that some photo shoots are just more work than others.
My entire, complete, and main goal is to be a photographer that captures your family in all of its awesomeness and reality during your session. To do this, I have to be able to put your mind at ease that you are going to get the most fabulous album anyone has ever received. I have to convince hubby that it's going to be quick, painless, and fun. To top it all off, I have to convince the little kids that they are a part of the decision making and that I'm awesome, so they will engage with me and the teenagers to accept that it's not dorky and they are going to look phenomenal. All this, with a smile on my face, a laugh in my heart, and a pep in my step. I'm a multi-tasker by nature. Doing this is my very favorite thing to do and I get so much enjoyment out of it, that it should be considered illegal. Alas, it's not. It's my job and I don't work a day!!!
With all of that said, I have found that I absolutely enjoy (and I'm good at) maternity, newborn lifestyle, kids mini sessions, and families. These are the main areas I want to focus my business going forward. That doesn't mean I won't do the occasional wedding, engagement, and senior session if asked. It just means that my promotional material will focus more around where I want my business model to go.
For you this means I'm going to be expanding my training and knowledge in these areas. Your sessions are going to be unique, natural, and most of all not like the neighbor next door. You are going to want to print these and display them all over your house. Maybe even your car (just kidding. I went too far).
So for my first promotional, if you got this far, mention this blog post and you can get 25% OFF any session (not including minis) between now and June 30!!!
