I did an engagement photo shoot for my niece Cassandra and her fiance' Andrew back on December 18th around our downtown historic area. We had such a great time, although we were VERY cold and had to stop into a Java Stop about half way through the shoot to warm up, HA. This picture is yet unedited, but this was one of her favorites, obviously not one she would use for the paper, but still a lovely intimate moment between them.
You can View Slideshow of the raw unedited gallery OR you can go to my facebook business page to view the images I have already edited for them HERE.
It is a LOT of working pulling together my photography business, I am lucky I have had a lot of great advice from friends in the business OR other photographers I have gotten to know through blogging who freely share their experience. Although they were always honest about the work it took to set up shot, it is still a lot more work then I thought it would be, but I feel like God is opening up the way each step. I already have several clients lined up for 2012, including a potential wedding in June . . . . .scary . . . . . but exciting!! I am setting my goals and already checking some things off the list, in fact I completed my first two goals yesterday. I finally established my business domain (which I will share later) and I established my client proofing site. Now I have to:
- Register for DSLR class at CCC for February and Photography class in April
- See if CCC has any Business Management courses
- Draft Business Plan
- Firm up my business logo and marketing paperwork
- Check into opening business banking account
- Check into insurance for camera equipment and business
I have a lot of work to do, and working around the kids can some days be a challenge, but I LOVE it and I know I am doing what I should be doing. God will provide for all the details that need to come into place.
So, what do you think of the pictures? Did you take a look?
