The Business of Photography

Last year I was constantly fighting with papers. I would print out my client’s questionnaire (which, by the way was about 15 pages long) as well as their timeline (add 2-3 more pages) and in addition to all of my photography gear it would just ultimately cause me to feel like I was fumbling with a bunch of junk. I felt like I didn’t look organized to my couples or their guests. I felt like I was constantly trying to find clothes that had pockets deep enough to hold a small book of folded paperwork. It was just too much to handle.

Over the past 7 years of being in business I’ve learned a lot about myself and how my brain processes information so I can hit a stride with working on projects. I get distracted easily, so I can’t work with music or the TV on in the background. I have to stop for frequent breaks so give my brain a second to unload. I have a tendency to focus INTENSELY HARD on one single project all day long, otherwise I feel scattered. Even the smallest little thing out of place bothers me until I fix it.

There are so many different areas where you can optimize your YouTube channels, and each and every location is just as important as the one before and after it. If you can find a location to share the purpose of your channel, what you’re sharing, outbound links (website, social media, opt-in freebies, etc) then I would definitely suggest using it! Our video below takes you through my own YouTube channel so you’re able to see where you can update this.

Sometimes I want to push certain images, videos, or post content to my Pinterest page so I can save them for later, or categorize them for my records. But how in the world do you easily save IG content to Pinterest? It’s pretty easy, actually!

Have you ever attempted to share your URL links to Facebook, only to get a post that doesn’t show your image, description, or link after you publish? Sometimes, this can happen because you recently made a major change to your theme, updated your titles and tags, or you have a brand new website that Facebook doesn’t recognize.

My husband works full time away from home, I work full time AT home, we both have two children and a household to run. In modern times you can probably see that our arrangement isn’t too out-of-the-norm. There are many families doing the same thing and working on finding routines and schedules that work best for them. If you ask my husband, he would probably tell you that I wake up too late and should be starting our day much sooner than I do. But my morning routine works for us.

If you’d like to find out why your preferred routine is different than a close friend or spouse, take this free quiz. Your chronotype could explain everything!

My experiences attending this particular workshop has been unlike anything I’ve attended, to-date. By lunchtime on the first day everyone there interacted and laughed as if we were long-time friends hanging out for a couple days. You see, I’m a tried-and-true introvert to the core and I wanted nothing more than to hug the walls and just observe before I felt safe with interacting. However, I didn’t feel that way here.

I think I first heard about Lenstag in one of Susan Stripling’s CreativeLive courses a couple years ago. I’ve had an account with them ever since and I have to admit that it’s really helped me stay organized by providing an easy-to-use list of what I own. The benefits of using Lenstag are pretty clear when you open an account!
