Photo Biz Boot Camp

Wow! It has been a crazy couple of weeks around here! Just when I thought I was about as busy as it gets with finishing up jobs in time for the holidays - I spent much of last week at Photo Biz Boot Camp. Liana Lehman came up from Atlanta and spent 3 days with 8 of us from 7 studios in the area going over the business side of photography and helping each of us develop some goals for the coming year and beyond. It was incredible and I am SO glad I was able to go (thanks to a scholarship from Davina Fear)! I have so much going on in my head and I need to take some more time to get it all out on paper and make some plans for the coming months. Now that all jobs are up online and prints have been ordered, I can't wait to take a few days to process and plan ahead!

Here are some photos from our last day of camp...

Thank you for coming all the way up to Boston to be with us, Liana! You are a great teacher and an absolute blessing! And thanks to each of my fellow photographers - for being such an encouragement to me! I'm so glad to have met each of you and can't wait for that follow-up session on the cruise ship next year :)

I'm really excited about the next year in my business and I can't wait to see what happens when I start putting all of this into action. Big changes will be coming, so stay tuned...
