I wanted to write this for anyone who hasn't yet found their style, or place as a photographer. It takes time to find yourself as a photographer. Some find it early on, and some take a long time. I truly believe that even those who 'found their style' are always adding to it, perfecting it, and in a way altering what their vision looks like. I do however know how frustrating it can feel to shoot session after session and...

THE NUMBER ONE THING YOU NEED TO DO BEFORE THE NEW YEAR Make a list of the services and products you offer. If you're a photographer you'll want to make two lists. One for sessions you offer, and one for the products you offer.  Next you'll need to look at how much you made of each type session. (write down how much you made in 2016 on just newborn sessions, baby sessions, maternity sessions etc.).  Once that's complete take a...

A question I get often is about Facebook Advertising. Does it work? Is it worth it? How can you make it work for yourself as a professional photographer? It's something people email me about, ask me on facebook, discuss in my private photography group. After publishing my own income reports and showing you that I spent money on advertising it has brought even more questions my way about how it works.  Most of you who are reading this probably have...

The biggest compliment I have gotten since starting my business wasn't about how beautiful my work was, or how great I was at editing or my organization skills. It wasn't about how nice my camera was, or how pretty my studio looked. I have never been on the cover of a magazine or gotten an award for what I do. I have never been recognized by some top company on something I've done.   The biggest, greatest compliment I have gotten over and over again...

Today I hit 90,000 fans on facebook. Every time I hit a new big milestone like that I think about those first few people that hit that like button on facebook. Looooong before I knew what I really wanted to do. My work was pretty terrible but I was just proud of learning how to finally shoot in manual, who cared how bad it looked, I was living the dream. I was just as proud of that than I am...

  People all over the world are trying to figure out when the best and worst time is to post to their social media accounts. Pinterest is filled with graphs to show you exactly what time is 'prime' time and which ones to avoid at all costs. Most of those graphs match up, and it seems that following those guidelines is a MUST if you ever want to build a good following on any social media platform. Well, I'm here to...

I built my entire business around documenting real moments for others, and my passion grew greater with every photo I took. Years passed, and I had this overwhelming feeling of missing being there in the moment. Everything in my life I documented with my camera. But during those moments, my mind had to make a choice in where to be. Behind the camera, or in the moment. Did I want to live it through my camera viewfinder or just be...
