Perspective

Over the past few hours since I posted the last blog, I have gotten some very wonderful advice on both my website and plans for a new studio. 

I have some more serious revamping to do including moving my boudoir work to a completely different website. And working on my marketing to bring in the amount of clientele I want to justify having studio space. 

It was truly enlightening to gain this perspective. 

Was it what I wanted to hear? No. But sometimes what you want to hear and what you need to hear are completely opposite.

I will not be taking the studio space. 

What I will be doing is implementing the very valuable marketing advice I received to bring in new clients. 

Don’t discount the power of Facebook discussions. Thank you to the people in the business groups I am in for your advice, commentary, and feedback. It made a world of difference!

 I will be posting a new blog with some of my marketing advice next week! Stay tuned!

If you would like to know some of the tips I got or advice I received, leave me some comments below and I’ll gladly answer any questions you have!

New Studio

They say that something will come along that makes you understand why nothing else ever worked out.

I found this to be true with my son. My life took a completely different turn for the better after I had my ray of sunshine.

I found this true again when my husband found me in the least likely of circumstances. He’s my soulmate. 

I’ve been at a crossroads with a career. While I’ve tried dozens of jobs, photography just seems like the most important part of my career path. 

I LOVE showing others their timeless beauty and documenting their life through portraiture. 

I’ve been trying to break into the administrative career path to no avail. No results.

I’ve been stuck in a dead end janitor night job for 3 years. While it does offer some perks, it’s not where I want to be.

I tried going back to school for computer technology programs. And I couldn’t keep my mind off photography.

Recently there was a for rent sign at a local shop. It seemed so tempting that I couldn’t help but to call. I met the owner of said shop and was blown away. It is absolutely perfect for a photography studio. My studio. Where I want to be. Doing what I love to do. For the right price.

No other job has worked out. My efforts to break into a different career have not been successful.

What is stopping me?

Me. My lack of faith in myself to make this work. I crunched the numbers and if I had more faith… I could make this work. I would have to do it full time. And that scares me. Having to rely on my own abilities scares me. The thought of losing that much money and failure…is scary. 

My current marketing efforts haven’t been very successful either and that is very important since I need to have established clients to make it work and I currently do not. I have honestly put photography on the back burner while trying to pursue alternative careers. 

I believe this is my calling.

What would you do? 

Would you take the leap of faith and go for it? Or would you stay on the straight and narrow safe path until a more secure possibility comes along?

Krys – Boudoir Client

Recently I had a session with a very lovely new client. She told me about some struggles she had with health issues and weight loss. She wanted to see herself the way others did, and a way to feel beautiful. I said have no worries, you came to the right place! We had a fantastic time and her images came out absolutely gorgeous!!!! I had the privilege to get an interview from her as well as her product reveal. Check out below for the insight!
