As soon as I started posting beautifully branded photos of myself, my business totally changed again. This is something I really believe in and can't wait to help you shake up your business for the better as well!
I knew that I wanted to connect with my potential clients on a deeper level and share who I am, but I was struggling to do that through the photos I was posting. And the thought of sharing photos of myself?
I thought back to what it felt like to leave my 9-5 job and remembered how scared I was. And then I thought back on all the good that came from leaving it behind. Suddenly I realized that if I wanted to see a change in my business, I needed to listen to my intuition and just DO IT.
And I did.
I was sitting behind a desk at a job that made me miserable, staring out at the view of a dumpster from my office window. “How’s that for a sign?” I laughed to myself as I typed my two weeks notice. It was the scariest thing I have ever done. And it was also the most rewarding.
In the years since I hit send on that email, my life has totally changed. While I had been actively photographing weddings for years, i could finally put the energy into my business that it deserved. As a result, my little photography business started to flourish! And with that came a new found confidence and excitement.
But something was still missing.
