Getting my name out can be challenging. Here I sit with a great newborn studio and only a handful of newborns to photograph. I do get to photograph them but not as often as I would like. I do start to second guess myself but then I have to shake it off, and keep on hitting the pavement. I have the vision & I am confident in my work, but It’s such a slow process that it can become frustrating. I know Rome wasn’t built overnight, but I guess my desire & drive keeps me wanting to do more now. This is the price I have to pay in order to specialize in a certain area. I told myself that I would have to turn work down in order to build my name and brand as a newborn & children’s photographer. It is tempting to photograph that family of ten or that boudoir session, but I have a goal, and I want to focus on building it. I want to be known as the photographer who specializes in this one area. For me it creates trust & confidence with my clients, and they know that photographing their babies and children is my focus. As I continue to get the word out there about my work, I will also continue to work on my craft and hopefully soon I will be blogging about needing a break!
