A day in the life of a portrait photographer

Today was typical… up early, meditate then,to my office to sit in front of my old friend,  the computer.

Retouching a headshot client from this past week and I’m loving how they are turning out. Get a few marketing tasks done, emails, following up with inquiries. More retouching, schedule session for next week, check calendar for what’s up tomorrow. Repeat…

Sometimes it can seem a little repetitious, but really never is! Being in business for myself is not always easy, but it’s always worth it! When I’m asked by other photographers, what I think  is the most important piece of the puzzle, I have one reply… MARKETING MARKETING MARKETING. If you don’t get clients in your studio, you cannot create beautiful portraits.

To be sure, it is a luxury item. But having beautiful portraits that will outlive you, well, how sad it is that everyone doesn’t have this experience and bring home beautiful portraits? I just love being able to give this to my clients. It is an experience like no other:)

When a client comes into my studio, there is an energy that is present that I can’t quite describe. It is different every time with each client. No two sittings are the same.

    Great portrait photography is a result of combining the right technique with an artist’s expression. And I agree, no two sittings are same. There’s always something new in every client.
