The Month of March and Trying New Things

The Month of March has been incredibly busy. Living in Sioux Falls we got to feel the temperatures change from devastatingly cold to bearable Spring temperatures. The air was so cold for so many days that we were able to see sun dogs and other very unique sun flares (pictured) because ice crystals were suspended in the sky! While the temperature was cold, the concert scene was HOT. I got to photograph some of the biggest stars in the world including KISS, Dierks Bentley, Dylan Scott, and Tyler Farr.

The Paisley Pod announced that they will be opening a retail store. How exciting for Chrystal, her family, and her team that help make the boutique what it is. I enjoy our weekly photo shoots and it really shows.

Also in March, I really focused on two areas where I felt my portfolio was weak and the opportunity for growth was available. Edgier, boudoir or lingerie shoots were something I wanted to show was a skill I had and then I realized that the talent on the other side of the lens is what really makes these shoots special. Speaking of having something very special on the other side of the lens, I focused a lot on maternity photos this month. While I still have a few more mommy-to-be shoots, I have really enjoyed taking these photos and sharing them.

The “New Photography Standards”

When I started photography I made a list of all of the things I didn’t like about photography and worked backwards from there. I made sure to have a response for everything that bothered me as a customer.

“When I started photography I made a list of all of the things I didn’t like about photography and worked backwards from there.”

I started with price, vowing to never over-price my services and only offer them at a price that I found reasonable, consistent from client to client, and at a price that was good for clients AND business (not just one or the other). After price, I recognized that in all my experiences as a photography customer, I was not pleased with turn-around-times and I have made it a point to offer the best turn-around-times in the industry. For EVERY project, I guarantee a 24 to 72 hour turn-around-time and provide all photos, edited, by an electronic link.

“…I recognized that in all my experiences as a photography customer, I was not pleased with turn-around-times and I have made it a point to offer the best turn-around-times in the industry.”

Finally, as a fan or customer of photography I wanted diversity. When I purchased a session or a product, I didn’t want my photos to look like everyone else’s so I made it a priority to make every session as unique and beautiful as the subject. Collectively, I call all of this the “new photography standards” – a modern and customer friendly way of doing photography.

Florida, Weddings, and Blake Shelton

It has been a beautiful and diverse week of photography. Lots of projects published on social media including multiple professional portraits for local businesses, photos from the BLAKE SHELTON concert in Sioux Falls, and the amazing wedding of Brooke and Tyler Burlage. This week I also took my family to Clearwater, Florida and enjoyed every moment with them along with the opportunities to take photos of my family and the great scenery. Follow along on social media! πŸ™‚
