When I first started my photography business, I was pretty eager to photograph everything and everyone who was willing to hire me. I really didn't know what exactly I wanted to photograph - because well, I had NO experience in photographing anything yet.
But now, and in the 20 months I've been in business, I've photographed children, families, extended families, proposals, newborns, bridal portraits, parties, engagements, events, maternity, seniors, couples and weddings.
Phew - that is a lot of different offerings.
And I can honestly say, some of these categories I absolutely LOVE photographing.
But there are some I don't necessarily love to photograph.
I've known this about myself for a while now...but when someone calls and wants to hire me for X amount of money...and I'm free that day. It's really hard to turn down the money. (Even though that "gig" isn't necessarily what I really want to be photographing.)
But if I want to be happy as a photographer...I need to only photograph the things that I WANT TO PHOTOGRAPH. I mean, this is my SIDE business by the way.
I need to remember NOT to take jobs for the money, but to take jobs because I truly enjoy doing them. I don't need to do it all!
Soooooo, with that being said.
This month I'm taking a dive into my current photography offerings and removing the categories that don't give me that extra special feeling when I get booked for a job.
So stay tuned.
As this might be the last time you see any wedding photography from me...
....or is it???? :)
