Tell us about yourself and your business.
I am a senior photographer out of Lexington, KY. In 2013 I decided to open up my photography business and have been specializing in seniors ever since! I love showing young women that they are just as beautiful on the outside as they are on the inside. I am married to a handsome negotiator and have 2 adorable boys. I love my 10 pm bedtime, morning coffee, pizza, and my cycling classes.
What is in your gear bag?
Canon Mark 5D Classic
Canon 85 1.8
Canon 50 1.4
Where do you draw inspiration from?
I draw inspiration from fashion magazines mainly. The different seasons also inspire me and I love to use each season to my advantage when I am planning a session. Spring flowers are my favorite!
What is one obstacle you had when you first started your business? What did you do to overcome it?
One of the biggest obstacle I had when I first started my business was to not focus on my competition. It is hard to see all these amazing photographers doing all these big things, but you just have to learn to focus on yourself or it will just eat away at you and really have a negative effect on your work.
Please share one tip that you found to be successful to share with other photographers.
Always keep learning and getting better. If you stop learning you become complacent. There is always something you can improve on in your business.
