One of the hardest things I have had to develop in my business is connecting with my clients on more than just a professional level. I want them to receive their galleries knowing I made their session personal to them. Being able to get to know them and capture them candidly has grown & changed my business immensely. Looking back on last year and seeing how much it has positively impacted my business, I decided I wanted to share the knowledge and ideas with other photographers. A photographer that is able to provide a diverse image gallery in a short amount of time is not an easy task!
This is where The Candid Beautifully Workshop came into play…..
”If indeed you must be candid, be Candid Beautifully”
Think about that for a second. There are many ways to catch a candid photograph, but to execute the candid image in a beautiful way is difficult when you’re working in the moment. So what if as photographers, we focused more on the client connection and basic movements to really capture a candid moment? You end up with beautiful things.
10 amazing boss babes gathered at The Marry Me Cottage in O’Fallon, MO to learn, grow, and get dinner. You all know I won’t skip a chance to have a good meal. We talked about posing tips, easy actions to tell clients to maximize the shots rendered, how to flow from one pose to the next, and even some business tips. We were able to work with some outstanding wedding vendors in our area and their work was gorgeously showcased.
Each girl has a different business, different goals, and a different creative eye, yet we were able to come together and have fun, share ideas, just for the love of the industry! I am so blessed I was able to share parts of my journey with others in hopes to help them grow their business.
