State of the Business
Modeling after a dear friend, I present to you my first ever State of the Business Blog-dress.
First of all, I love this little business. I have more fun getting to know you lovely folks I'm lucky enough to photograph, and then staring at your faces as I work through your images. I'm not being creepy; I'm being real. Let's just all be okay with that.
Secondly, I love where my business is headed. I'm 100% on board here, now that I've resigned from teaching. I have been working more heavily (but not heavily enough!!) in film, and am thrilled with the possibilities in that department. I love focusing on teens and seniors, and also love when I have the opportunity to photograph babies, families, new mommas, brides, etc. I'm living the dream, I think.
Next, I still firmly believe I am making the right call in not regularly photographing weddings. I do have wedding pricing available--as everyone has their price ;)--but not jumping into that industry is the right choice for my lifestyle.
Moving forward, I'm looking for success in a few different categories in 2015.
First, I want to continue to offer the best services I can provide, while staying true to my style and always working to offer more than the minimum for your value. BOOM.
Secondly, I want to improve. I want to be more artistic, more technically refined, more creative, more everything. Except more lame, no one wants that.
Thirdly (weird word), I'm about to hire a marketing intern (!!!!!) so you folks are about to be hearing A LOT MORE from Becca Egger Photography!! I'm not skilled in this area, and after a very productive lunch meeting with a friend who IS, I have a plan. So get excited about that.
Almost lastly, film. I would say I'm 80% digital, 20% film at this point. This time next year, I want the inverse to be true--80% film, 20% digital.
Definitely lastly, pricing. In order to account for life changes as well as business evolution, I've adjusted pricing from henceforth. Worry not, everyone in the books and/or in conversations as of now is grandfathered in under my 2014 pricing. I'm fair, y'all. ;)
Lots of love. I have the coolest job ever.
