Look back at 2016....Part One

Sometimes memories hit you the hardest at night. Sometimes the recognition of some of the tiniest things, hit you the hardest at night and while I lay here I got hit with this thought.

I'm not going to lie, I actually got emotional about this thought. Everyday when I log onto Facebook I see -at least one- person that has started a photography business, and you know, people ask me if that worries me. In all honesty, not anymore. There would be times I would be so angry that I just didn't understand why they didn't want to work with me, what was wrong with me? I would LOWER my prices because I wanted to work with everyone. But you know what I was asked when talking about it with a local photographer and close friend?

"Why are you worrying about them? Why are you worrying about people that don't VALUE YOU?"

She had a point. Why was I worrying? All this worrying was doing nothing beneficial to me, but because of me worrying about these other business owners, I started slacking. And when that started happening, I hit rock bottom hard! I was late getting galleries out, CDs weren't going out as fast, I was on the verge of losing all of this hard work that I had put into my business.

So what made me change. I stopped caring about everyone else. I stopped caring about everyone who was starting a business, I stopped caring about the other photographers around me. I just stopped. Instead I focused on how I can make an impact on my clients. How I can give them an experience they would love!

At this moment, I'm currently re-branding my entire business. That also means revamping my collections for my seniors and wedding clients. I want them to have actual memories in their hands and not so much memories stored on a USB drive.

With each client we will sit down and have a Signature Country Breeze Viewing! This is where the clients and myself sit down and go through the images. Go through the possibilities of what a client can really get from a session with Country Breeze Photography :)

There's so much more coming from Country Breeze Photography in 2017!! So please join me on this journey as we make 2017 an AMAZING year!
