Weird title, right?
Anyways. I know I have been MIA lately, but dont worry. I have not forgotten my lovely blog readers.
I dont exactly have any photos to share but I do have some news. Some business-ey news but it comes with some confessions from my heart.
Confession- I do not have a business mind. I was a recreation major in college.. It is hard for me to plan ahead with a marketing schedule and until recently it was hard for me to know how to market myself. I like word-of-mouth. I like for my body of work to speak for itself. But sometimes, in this a whole small business owner world, you have to put a little umph into your own business to get to where you want to be. I know that full well! It is the rest of the stuff that I struggle with.
So I took a workshop to help me learn and grow. And it gave me incredible ideas for marketing! And so I planned and designed and have launched a small marketing… the word escapes me… plan? I dont know..
But that led me to really think about why I love photography. What stories do I love? What stories do I connect well with? What kind of photography do I love?
My answer? I love families, and babies, and seniors, and lifestyle sessions.
I love small, intimate, photo session. I like to get to know my clients well and tell a small piece of the story. Which can be really big and important!
I love all kinds of photography and shooting for my friends is super important to me also. The weddings I have scheduled are people who are important in my life and I reallllly want to celebrate their wedding with them BY shooting it.
However I am taking this marketing campaign (ah, finally! campaign is the word I was looking for!) as a chance to finally specialize my business. I have become a volunteer for an incredible organization called Preemie Prints to allow myself to be able to bless families by shooting this special time in their life. Also, I am here, on my blog, letting you wonderful people know that when you need a family shoot, or babies, or maternity, or SENIOR, or even birth photography done please know that this is where my heart is.
