|Tell us about yourself and your business.
I am a 22 year old senior portrait photographer in Madison, WI. I absolutely LOVE working with senior girls. Showing each one through photography that they are beautiful and unique is amazing! My style is natural, relaxed, and FUN.
|What is in your gear bag?
Canon 5D Mark II
|Where do you draw inspiration from?
My favorite source is the senior! Aidia is absolutely gorgeous and has a stunning smile, but she also has a softer and more serious look that came out in her senior portraits. I love how the colors and flowers compliment that so well.
|What is one obstacle you had when you first started your business? What did you do to overcome it?
I started my business senior year of high school. Home school had some awesome perks for starting a business, but I also lacked the initial connections and network. Connecting with local seniors, word of mouth, and social media has been huge for meeting awesome new people and seniors!
|Please share one tip that you found to be successful to share with other photographers.
Really work to make a connection and get to know your seniors! Follow and interact on social media with genuine comments, and take the time to stop and talk to them during the shoot. Moving out from behind the camera for a compliment or joke helps make the process that much more relaxed and fun! 😀
