It’s a Sunday. One of those rare Sunday evenings that I actually don’t have anything I have to do. On nights like this, I try to figure out ways to better my business and to better myself as a photographer. Tonight I chose to learn a little something from one of my favorite role models, Jasmine Star.
A month ago, I purchased Jasmine Star’s creativelive course as a way to learn how one of the top photographers in the world goes about capturing a wedding day. If you don’t know Jasmine Star, you should. She is amazingly talented, a women of God, and just so much fun! When it comes to the secrets of her success, she is an open book, willing to help anyone who will listen. I have learned so much through this 5-day course. One thing that has stood out tonight is how to brand yourself in a way that completely reflects who you are. I want people to hire me because they like me, exactly the way I am. I believe if this is true, my couples will trust me to do an amazing job capturing their wedding day.
So I started thinking, who am I? Well, basically I am a happy person, I don’t see that there is anything wrong with that! That's for all those "When Harry Met Sally" lovers out there. I cheerlead my way through life, looking for the good in every situation and encouraging others around me to do the same. I couldn’t go a day without chocolate; I just enjoy it too much! My personality is slightly addictive, meaning if I get into something, I am all about it…100%. Right now I am obsessed with s'mores ice cream. I have probably gone through at least 74 cartons of it this summer, no lie. Thank goodness for my husband I am obsessed with my daily workouts too. I love me some reality TV! Favorites now include Bachelor Pad and The Real Housewives of New York. I know, I know, but hey, that’s just me. I go into NYC every chance I get. There is nothing like the energy that continually flows through the streets in this wonderful city. Most importantly, I am a child of God. I love my heavenly father with all of my heart and I am so thankful for the goodness and mercy he pours into my life daily.
Now I just have to figure out a way to brand myself in a way that totally reflects who I am. I guess I will keep watching. Happy Sunday!
