From time to time I find myself realizing that I still have a website / blog that should be updated on a regular basis, however it’s one of those things that usually sits by the side while i work frantically to get clients their wedding collections as soon as i possibly can. It’s been the same old song for the past several years.. never enough time to update everything and continue being a primary care giver to my children, as well as shoot 30+ weddings per year. That being said, in just over 2 weeks, my business/life is going to take a dramatic change. I have mixed feelings about the change.. freedom is the first thing that comes to mind, but then the word loneliness also creeps into the picture as well. For the past 7 years of my business I’ve had the absolute pleasure of running a thriving photography business, and because of working from home, I’ve been able to look after and watch my kids grow up from little wee babies, to now, my youngest will be starting full time JK in just over 2 weeks. I’ve managed (somewhat) for many years being able to run my business with only 2 days per week to get all my ‘wedditing’ done. No I will have 5 full days a week for work, I can’t tell if this will be a Godsend, or if i will fall into a state of loneliness, being by myself almost all the time. It is definitely a positive swing for the business, allowing me to accomplish much more, and get my clients their collections rather quickly, but I am also going to miss my daddy/daughter and son time immensely! However, this does mean, that I should have time to give my site a complete update/overhaul and really be able to put a lot of effort into my business.. i’m excited and sad all at the same time.
Kristy and Dylan’s wedding was shot back in June of this so called summer that we’re having. I always love the fact that 99% of my weddings come straight through referrals! Not only does it say something about who I am, and why people want me to be a part of their special day, but it’s also always incredible to see familiar and friendly faces at a wedding. This wedding was very much that in a nutshell, I had the pleasure of shooting Kristy’s sisters wedding a few years ago, so I already knew most of the family and got to meet Kayla’s beautiful little baby girl for the first time. You can spend thousands of dollars on advertising, search engine optimization, but there’s nothing better than to have been running a successful wedding photography business for the past 9 years purely financed by client referrals.
Here we go.. K&D congrats again.. and I was thrilled to be such an integral part of your wedding day!
