I have a confession to make
First of all it's F R I D A Y and the weekend is just a few hours away! Lately there has been a lot of changes happening at PGP which is awesome so I just want to let you guys know where I'm at. As a Charlotte Family photographer & Charlotte Wedding photographer gearing up for a new stage in Priscilla Green Photography looking forward to year 2017 ( I know thats a couple of months left to go.) I have to admit for the last 3 years I haven't given it my 110% to my business success and personal success goals. I have done a great job as a photographer but I have not been a great business owner; much more like a satisfactory one just enough to run a photography business. Although I have given all I can to my clients with my time, creativity and photography skills. I have been scared to take big risks with my business goals; the business side of things (in other words excuses) although some fair ones... I have been dreaming too small, taking tiny baby steps, just too busy trying to be a mom, or my husband first needs to finish his Phd in Physics like I said excuses (for me.) And even though my dream is much alive and business is definitely growing I have let fear of "not knowing" or "uncertainty" slow down my dream. So what do I to change that... Priscilla Green Photography got a "facelift" invested in a new branding look, website that i'm in love with because let's face it I'm a creative and love PRETTY things! I am also trying out 17 hats a business software that will hopefully make business management much more productive. And of course throw myself and business out there (Network & Advertise!) other improvements include a much better blogging workflow and Album design software where my clients can comment on the changes they want made and approve online! One of my greatest fears is rejection and I'm proud to say not everyone is my client. I think many of us can admit to that but as a photographer our work is very personal and it hurts when someone does not value your work or like it very much. Thankfully I have found who are my clients and they are detail oriented, love to laugh, have fun, very stylish, LOVE and VALUE my photography but most of all their in love with their family or special someone :) And lastly one of my greatest business goals is to offer amazing customer service because thats really what its about for me creating a amazing experience from beginning to end with PGP. For my portrait clients from the first phone call, to the styling consultation where we choose a location perfect for my client, makeup artist, to what to wear, what props to bring, to the reveal of the images and final professional products. My ultimate goal is to create a personal experience different from the last for my client that is unique to them. And for my Wedding clients as well. It's all about the connections. And if you have any ideas that would be great to add to my client experience please feel free to send me a message.
I know it seems like I was just throwing ideas here and there but I just felt like I needed to say this more for me than anything. And to say I am committed to the success of this photography business. Cannot wait to see what's in store for this small business of mine and the great people I will photograph. Until then have a great weekend! Stay safe.
