So much of my business is based on referrals. When I first started out I gave away my sessions to local friends and family. Over time, the word got out and my fees became an addition to the household income. Unfortunately, I moved away from my client community and now I am squeezing in time to see them when I return home for a wedding and/or obligations back in that area.
I have been here since September and have had only a handful of local sessions. My photography business is my bread and butter. Recently, I began target marketing with this area in mind. My hopes are to eventually become a full time photographer.
Nothing is harder than starting over. I already gave away my work and started from the beginning. Now, I have to focus on doing this all over again. I have to for my family.
