I’ve been a photographer for 8 years, and during that time there have been many things I wish I could’ve told clients, friends, and family.
So, instead of sitting you all down and explaining, let me do it right here for you!
I’m a mom to 3 kids – at this point, I’ve seen it all.
So if your newborn projectile vomits all over the fur rug in the studio, don’t worry. He isn’t the first!
And if you scream that 4 letter word as you push that 9 pound baby into the world, you go for it mama. I remember exactly how that felt, and you’ve gotta do what you need to do in that moment.
Whether you are smiling in professional hair and makeup at a newborn photo session or sweating and laboring in a hospital gown, you’re beautiful.
Guys, I WISH moms could see themselves the way I see them through the lens.
Just know that you are beautiful, and that’s what I see when I take your picture.
And, you know how you wish you were as “fat’ as you were in high school – I totally feel that way looking back at my own newborn photos. Enjoy the moment, and recognize that you are stunning.
There are lots of photographers out there for good reason.
We all have a different style, different price points, different personalities.
And just because we’re friends doesn’t mean I’m the right photographer for you or your family. I mean, I love you! But you don’t have to hire me because of that.
Pick the photographer that fits your needs. *WHEW* right?!
If you saw something you love on Pinterest, let me know!
I can do my best to capture a similar image for you. Of course, there are lots of variables.
We may not be able to find the exact location or prop, but I can help you figure out what we need to achieve a similar effect.
These days, a lot of my clients come from social media.
If you want to support my business, SHARE my posts. Leave a little comment on my posts. Tag a friend in my posts.
The more you share and comment, the more visibility I have online, the more clients I’ll book.
Seriously, a share or comment on social media is basically GOLD.
Yes, this is an amazing job. I get to be around tiny babies and birth all the time and I love it!
But it’s also my job.
I spend hours not just taking photos and editing them, but also working on my craft and my business.
I go to conferences and workshops to learn new techniques. I manage my books and my assistant and my workspace. I study and learn about marketing – and all of this is part of the job.
Photography is my passion, but it’s also my livelihood!
