Last year went by to quick and this year seems to be going even quicker. If feels like it was just Christmas a few weeks ago. So, I am completely three months late on writing any blogs for this year.
Here is a recap of last year...
The quality of my work is better and I would like to think more consist.
I photographed a big ZERO for maternity, but I also didn't do any model calls this time around. Thinking about doing one or two in 2017.
I also did photograph only 3 newborns, but all were between the months
of January and April.
My Valentine Mini's went well as did my Mommy and Me sessions. Could have been better, but a few bookings are better then none.
Tried my hand a Groupon... ha won't do that again. (you must discount your product at least 30% to list your services. Then, Groupon takes 50% of what you make from the sale) Anyway, the Groupon offer got me two doggie clients.
Summer ended up being a bummer and the fall was filled with many inquiries,
but few bookings.
Did a few model calls to expand my children's portrait portfolio. This was great. Got the images I needed.
Photographed/attended my favorite clients wedding in October. Very happy with the outcome.
Participated in a fall festival with a booth. Sold older newborn hats from when I first started to crochet. Also, sold a cat tree I made for the occasion. Two were built; one sold. Displayed my samples and was able to get names, phone numbers, and e-mails for my mailing list. Tried to sell my fine art prints (landscapes and smoke photography). Didn't sell any. Need to work on presentation more and variety of fine art prints for future vending.
Well that about sums it up... On Yeah... my cats as always were my favorite models.
