is a part of me that cannot believe that it’s already the end of February! You know what that means?!! It’s CONFERENCE time. Yep! It’s that time of the year that we’re praying all of our prep and hard work will pay off and that I’ll deliver beautiful presentations! We’ll see! I really do love speaking because I love people and I love teaching. It’s the best of both worlds. We have an amazing opportunity to connect with so many people at one time and we’re pumped!! However, the excitement is also coupled with the fear of “Shoot!! What if no one shows up?!! GAH!!”. It’s a real fear.
I’m sure big timers don’t worry about this at all but this little southern photog who is a WPPI newbie has NIGHTMARES about it!! Seriously! Can you imagine walking into a room to speak and no one is there?! Ohh sweet goodness. I know some of our friends will be there but I’m just hoping and praying that we have one awesome group because I really do want to help as many people grow as I can!!
I’m speaking on Creating Community…. the single most important thing we’ve done in our business! If I was talking about pricing… I wouldn’t be as passionate… but this topic is so close to my heart!!! It explains how we grew exponentially the last 6 years and it also shares out heart for our business. We didn’t grow our business by being great at sales, we grew our business because of how we serve our clients! Oh it’s going to be good!! Here’s a sneak peek:
So we’d love to see you there if you’re making your way to Vegas next week!! If you’re using the WPPI planner, be sure to add Tuesday, March 4th from 6:30-8:00pm!! We can’t wait to see you!! Let us know if you’re coming so that we an get excited…. and so I can sleep at night! haha
We are thankful for our friend Tyler Herrinton who helped us out with a special video project for our WPPI talk!! Here is a little blooper clip!!!
This beautiful day way unlike any wedding I have ever photographed before. It’s hard to put into words how powerful and inspiring it was.
If you’ve been following my updates since I got the R6 two years ago, you know I LOVE it!! It has been a game changer for me! But there is ONE mistake that I’ve made that cannot be fixed afterwards!
There are things that EVERY photographer should have on their website! We will walk through some students’ websites to see how small changes can impact their perceived value, and for you to see if what they’re missing is something that you are too!
You know what I’m realizing? I’m realizing I am loving getting to see people I love and miss in this very busy season of our life.
We’re gearing up for wedding season and there are so many ways to market yourself DURING a wedding to keep new clients coming in! I have been a wedding photographer for 13 years, and I have never paid for ‘traditional’ advertising!
I am eating my words again! For years, I have used InDesign for everything… but Canva had a HUGE update last year which changed everything!!
