My friend and I started this business 4 years ago out of an experience she had. She had finally decided she wanted to do something for herself. Something completely unlike her but she wanted the experience.
She wanted to get some gorgeous images of herself to have later in life and hoped to get an experience all about her, one she would be excited to describe to everyone she knows.
Well, she scheduled her appointment and had her session and it was………absolutely awful!
She arrived at the location and instead of an elegant, beautiful place it was cold and uninviting. Cold brick walls and a less than appealing bathroom to change in. She had her hair and makeup done prior and was ready to have her session. But THIS was NOT what she had expected.
The photographer did not engage her. She didn’t show her that she cared at all about her and what she was doing. My friend posed as she was told, made expressions she thought would look good and made it through her session.
In the end, she hated her images. She felt nothing for them. She thought her face looked old and unhappy. They were absolutely not living up to her expectations. Needless to say, she didn’t purchase a single image!
And THAT is where we began. She described her experience to me and how disappointed she was, then she said “we could do this!” So we began planning!
Between my photography skills and her makeup skills, we succeeded! We made our business to revolve around our clients. We do for them in every way. We love our clients and we show it. We love what we do and we show it. We love the way we make our clients feel and THEY show it. It is written on the face of each of their images.
THAT is what my friend wanted. THAT is what we give our clients. THAT is what we can do for you!
