As most of you know from my instagram feed and stories, I have been working with Rangefinder Online on photography business related articles. I wanted to do a little recap of what has been published to give you another chance of connecting with a post that may be beneficial to you and your growing photography business.
In this article, I share three tips on how to expand your wedding photography business to be a wedding and newborn photography business. I like to refer to this as a natural step in the circle of life and love.
Back when I was a banking technology intern, long, long ago, I had the opportunity to have a 30-minute call with someone who's now the CEO of a big bank. I remember asking how she balanced work life and family life, her laughing and saying she didn’t. I wasn't quite sure what she meant then, but after six-and-a-half years in that industry, seven years running a photography business and three-and-a-half years with children, I get it. It isn’t about balance; it's about prioritizing.
There is no simple answer to how to prioritize your photo business and personal life, but I can share the wisdom I've gained and what I have learned to take into consideration over the years.
There is a first session for every photographer, and this article will help you with yours as you expand or transition your already-existing photography business into newborn photography.
Shortly after I began my photography business, I started looking around for studio management software. At that time, I had been working as a project manager in NYC in banking technology. The tools we used to streamline the projects we worked on inspired me to look around for tools that could help me do the same with my photography business. I share why I think it is important to sign up early on in your business and how I use my preferred software, Tave, in my business. Want to try Tave? Click on this link to double your free trial.
