Over the past 5 years, not only have I improved dramatically as a business owner, but I have found my niche and style: I LOVE senior portrait sessions and I want to build my entire business around just that segment of this crazy big photography world we live in.
I become so energized and excited to meet a new high school senior client and his or her family. I can always sense the anxiety and the overwhelming emotions that each family brings with them to the session. Mom usually gives me the warning that she will likely cry during the photography session. Little sisters and grandmas are there to help with the flyaway hairs and bunched up sweaters. I always look forward to the moment when mom licks her own finger to wipe away a small speck of mascara from her daughter’s eye. I could never grow tired of this emotional bond but yet humorous gesture! Ever.
I’m not setting aside all other genres of photography by any means as my business evolves. I still plan to photograph a newborn baby at times and discover unique locations with newly engaged couples. But the very heart of my business will be devoted to all the high school students out there who expect a fun, trendy, professional and creative portrait session that captures them perfectly.
