I was completely honored when Emily contacted me within minutes of posting my first Coaching Session info blurb on Facebook. She booked a slot right away and drove all the way from Louisville to do a coaching session with me! I shot this pretty girl’s wedding back in 2010 and we’ve kept in touch since then. When she began her photography business I began getting questions from her here and there. She has grown a ton in the past three years and it was so fun to spend the day with her chatting about photography!
We started out the day in my office with a list of questions Emily brought with her. We talked a lot about workflow and I was able to show her things I’ve figured out over the years, much of it recent, that helps my day to day workflow for post processing and blogging. After 4 hours of Q & A time, we headed to lunch. Since Emily isn’t from here, a Dumplin’s lunch was must! We spent time over lunch discussing some goals and the next steps for her and Emily B Photography. It’s time for her to raise her pricing and offer some tiered packages and I was happy for the opportunity to encourage her in that area! Sometimes it’s hard for us photographers to feel like we’re worth the price tag, so I got to spend time telling Emily that she is worth it and give her some ideas for those next steps.
Next it was time for her head shots and I’ve realized there aren’t a lot of good, dry areas to shoot in Murray, so we headed downtown! She’s so bubbly and excited that she was pretty easy to photograph!
She changed outfits real quick and we went to the location we would be meeting our models!
Brittney & Ben were our models for the posing portion. When they got married about two years ago I wasn’t able to shoot their wedding, so I enjoyed getting to photograph them this week! They’re pretty adorable!
Emily didn’t need much coaching on posing them! She pretty much rocked it out!
Thank you Brittney & Ben for braving the cold for us! Emily–thanks for driving all the way to Murray to spend a day with me. I know you’re going to have a great year with your business!
