If you aren’t already, set up a photography blog! It’s a great way for you to show off your work and get your name out there. I do a sneak peak from each shoot and put them on the blog for the family, they can than forward my blog or (I give them permission because I have a signature stamp on all my images and they are set to low resolution quality) to pull them off and put them on their own blog as long as they link back to me! The first natural light photographer I ever found was because a friend had pictures done and linked it all to her blog, I than went and checked out his work, fell in love and had my own family portraits done!
Let’s start at the very beginning, a very good place to start… (I love musicals)
I, like many, am trying to start a photography business.
I LOVE IT, I love people, I love pictures, I love people watching, I even love the business side of it. It’s a perfect fit for me! I also have some background in business. Before I had my first daughter and got to become a SAHM, I ran the business operations of my dad’s company with him. We were a small business, so I was HR, Sales, Marketing, Customer Relations, Book Keeper, Designer among a few more titles. I have found that this knowledge base has been very useful with starting my photography business in many ways… But in others not so much. After all boats and photography don’t exactly go hand in hand.
