It's funny, a blog now seems to be a pre-requisite for a business, especially a small business. Everyone is doing it. Even educated fleas do it!
And now, I'm doing it.
Google loves blogs, I'm told. Well, here's the thing - I love blogs too! I love to tell stories, I love to "publish". I always have, from the little magazines I created when I was a child, to the articles I wrote for various publications in high school, college and beyond, to the spaces I helped to create as an architect, and the photographs I've taken my whole life.
So yes, I'm interested in search engine optimization. And yes I'm interested in promoting my business - showing my work and talking about services, products and specials. And yes I am very much interested in connecting with potential clients - letting you get to know me and my work over time. I also want to provide helpful information to current and ongoing clients - ideas for sessions, tips on preparing, and suggestions on how to select prints and products and share your photos. And I am interested in hearing back from clients and potential clients - what are you looking for, what are your needs, concerns and challenges? I am very very interested in all of these things.
But I'm also interested in talking about photography, and kids, and life in general. I had my first baby back in February and I have so much to say about it! I know that as a new mom, anyone who has been doing it just a little bit longer than you is an expert, and I was so grateful for all the help and advice and support I received. Hopefully, I can also provide helpful information for anyone who has been doing it a little less long than I have, as well as hear from anyone with kids in their life - about working with professional photographers in general, about photographing kids, and about life with kids, or really just life in general.
I'm here to share stories. So, pull up a chair and enjoy!
