In 2009, with my shiny new Nikon D80 in hand (my very first DSLR!) I launched my wedding photography business. I had a camera and a dream.

And that was it.

I was seriously lacking on anything else… funding, experience (in photography or in business), and clients.

I see you rolling your eyes… and girl, I’m right there with ya. That was NOT the way to launch a biz. But I hustled (and stumbled) my way through, eventually turning my dream into a viable wedding photography business — one that I was incredibly proud of!

Last month, after nearly a decade in business, I made the announcement that I was retiring from wedding photography — so I could focus entirely on my true passion: Empowering other female entrepreneurs with visual branding that gives them the confidence to succeed. Because I believe that confident and successful women will change the world.

Heck yes! Right?

Well, this has left me wondering… what do you do with 9 years of experience in a fairly niche field?

I decided to embrace my new mission: empowering other creative female entrepreneurs — I’m going to SHARE it with you!

That’s right — I’m spilling all of my secrets and sharing my best wedding photography tips with you!

Over this next month I’ll be sharing one new blog post everyday to help you take your Wedding Photography biz to the next level.

Not a wedding photographer? Not to worry, girl!

If you’re a smart cookie — which I have a pretty strong hunch that you are — you’ll be able to read between the lines to see that these biz and branding tips can help you elevate YOUR biz too. Whether you’re a newborn photographer, wedding planner, lifestyle coach, or fashion stylist… whatever your passion is, this series is gonna help you share it with more confidence and success.
