Give-away #2!

August 3, 2011

Today’s give-away is a $30 gift credit towards Marketing and Props for Photographers, a newborn prop shoppe.
I love the look of their natural wood bowls for newborns. Here’s a couple images of mine using their Distressed Bowl with Handles:
I also just purchased this Primitive Bowl (for only $38–that’s a steal!) for when my little guy is born. Can’t wait to try it out!

    My biggest frustration is that people don’t understand that I am a working MOM. My mom job comes first and if I don’t answer your phone call on the first ring, it’s probably because I’m wiping someone’s dirty bum!
    It’s great to organize our lives for work flow but it’s difficult when clients don’t get that I don’t go to a separate workspace from 9 to 5 Mon to Fri.

    I have a hard time with clients wanting something for nothing! Always wanting a disk of images so they can go print them themselves…. or asking “fishing” questions towards getting discounts or free prints. How do you handle that?

    I am just breaking into the photography business and I can’t do much right now as far as building a clientele because my husband is in the Army and we are getting ready to move.. AGAIN! Hopefully we will be in our next location for a while and I can actually build my business. I’m very excited!

    The biggest frustration for me is getting started. I have spent my own money on a camera and lenses including props and workshops, however I have not started charging and want to be sure this is somthing I can truly do before opening a business. My question is… If I spend $ now and open a business next year…Can I write off all my purchases from the previous year? yes, frustrating : )

    My biggest frustration is just being so young! Although I’m seventeen, I’m trying to jump-start my business and get ahead of my future competition. Many people don’t trust my quality or integrity because I’m a teenager, but I have worked very hard. A lot of people think that they’re doing me a favor and expect me to provide a lot of my photography services for free. Frustrating!

    I prefer to do outdoor portraits and the weather can be very frustrating. It’s been in the 100s for a month or more which means it’s hot in the morning and evening. It makes every session feel like a mini-session.
