As photographers, we spend A LOT of time behind the camera. We’re rarely ever in front of it, and if you’re like me, you’re probably not super comfortable being the model. I FEEL YOU, BUT HEAR ME OUT.
Photography is a RELATIONAL business! Sessions are about forming a relationship with your clients so you can tell their story well, so it’s important for potential clients to get a feel for WHO YOU ARE before they even book!
THIS MEANS SHOWING UP ON YOUR INSTA. 📸
I know, scary right? But I discovered that posts of myself often get almost twice the amount of engagement my other posts get, and stories where I’m showing up and just chatting get the most interaction!
HUMANS WANT TO SEE OTHER HUMANS. 💁🏻♀️
They want to see someone relatable who will understand them and bring out the best in them before hiring them. This is why I encourage people to not only have a headshot as their profile picture, and show themselves in both their posts and stories!
So, show up!!
Take some self portraits! Now is the time, am I right?! You’ll see a difference and people will appreciate seeing the human behind the biz! 👩🏻💻
Showing up helped me grow my Instagram organically by 1,000 followers in 5 months. It’s a game changer! Want more info on how to do this? Feel free to reach out about a one on one mentorship session so we can chat through how to build a brand that reflects YOU & that you absolutely love!
