This announcement has been simmering in my mind for several months now and I think it’s finally time to share where my business is headed. I allowed it all to take a back seat while we moved in the fall and prepared for baby #2: Titus! It was not a priority and wanted my family and my new church and home to get all of my energy in these recent months.
I also worked for a photographer at the end of high school/beginning of college (almost 10 years ago!) and they graciously called when they heard I had moved back to the area and extended me an amazing opportunity to come work with them. They tackle everything from in-studio portraits to senior/family/newborn sessions, school yearbook pictures, team sports portraits, corporate events, weddings and MORE. They have more than 30 years of business in Columbus and I was offered the chance to work and learn under their amazing expertise and thriving business. Sounds perfect, right?
Well…I kept thinking about this opportunity in mind and mulling it over. Something wasn’t sitting right. So I asked myself…why did I want to become a photographer? Why did I start my business?
“To love and serve others while supporting my husbands ministry and being available for my family.”
Working for another photographer would require set hours, a ton of commitment to their needs, and consistent time away from home. While I know there are tons of mamas out there that work, (and for several months I was ready to be one of them), I know I started my business to have the exact opposite lifestyle. Photography is something I love and fortunately it’s something that I can weave in and out of our schedules. As a business owner, I can photograph as much or as little as our season allows. Right now, with a busy toddler and new baby, it’s going to be at the end of my priority list…but… I know it’s time to start building again. In a blink of an eye, both of our kids will be in school and I would love to have a large clientele base again filled with families that I can serve through photography.
So, this summer…I will be launching again and giving deep discounts compared to where my prices left off in South Carolina. (ESPECIALLY SENIORS!! More information about being a senior rep this summer coming ASAP!) While I have 7 years of experience, we have many new friends and many potential new clients who don’t know me from AdamTake a chance and book a session so I can get to know you!!
