I've been down in the dumps today... really it's been since Sunday when the time changed and it started getting dark early. The weather has been gloomy all week and that hasn't helped...something has been weighing heavily on my mind for some time now, and I guess everything has just finally come to a head. I have a big decision to make, and it needs to be made NOW! Every business goes through changes and I guess I knew mine would too..... and change is good, RIGHT?
Through trial and error, and lots of learning and growing over the past few years, I have learned what I like and what I LOVE about photography and the photography "business". I've made mistakes and struggled with pricing and marketing and pretty much all the things new business owners deal with.
SO.....DRUMROLL, PLEASE! .........................................................................................
I have decided to focus my business and my photography talents more strategically and intend to specialize in 3 areas:
High School Seniors
Newborn Babies and Children
This doesn't mean I won't occasionally photograph families, couples, or pets, but I can't be everything to everyone! You know that saying "Jack of all trades and Master of none"? Well I don't want to be Jack! I will be serving the clients and friends that I've made and working with them closely to create and bring Fine Art Portraits into their homes. This change (for now) will start with me becoming strictly a home-based and on-location photographer. Instead of one spot in Galveston, my studio will be wherever we decide to create your portraits! Whether it be in your home, your backyard, a restaurant, a hotel, at the beach or at your favorite park - I'm at your disposal!
As I'm typing this post I'm becoming excited about the changes, instead of dreading them and feeling gloomy as I was earlier! Mr. H has been trying to cheer me up all day but I've been like Scrooge, BAH, HUMBUG! Nothing was cheering me up :( And that is sooooooo not me - if you know me then you know I'm almost always positive and cheerful!! Well now he's snoring on the couch, Daisy is nudging me and letting me know it's bedtime and I'm finally smiling!
Contact me if you want me to capture your unique personality and have a fun, stress-free photo shoot in the Galveston-Houston area!
