MEET Holly & Grant

Hey photographers! It’s that time of year when things start slowing down. Here are three things you can do to make your off-season profitable this year!

  1. Redo your website. Elevating your website and updating it with recent work is HUGE. You might not think so, but your website sells you on your clients. Make sure your favorite work is being represented there!
  2. Offer mentor sessions or invest in education yourself. If you’re still working on building your business from the ground up, use this time to invest in education. The more you learn now, the better you’ll be for next season. Whether that’s investing in editing courses, a mentorship or a posing course, brush up on your skills. If you’re confident in your business skills, offer to mentor those who aren’t! This is a great way to bring in an extra cash flow, and a good way to fill your time pouring into others.
  3. Photograph for yourself. This is honestly the best way to avoid burnout. Wake up each day and decide to photograph something different. Try photographing landscapes if you photograph people all the time. Chase light. Photograph shadows. Try something new like using fractals or prisms. This is your time to get creative so that your clients next year can really benefit from your skills and talents!

Hopefully this gave you a good idea of a few things to try this year in your off-season, or gave you some new ideas of your own.

You’re killing it! Keep up the amazing work!

Logan + Makayla chose Camp YoliJwa in Doubling Gap as the background for their engagement session. We had a breezy beautiful fall day and managed to get the last of the fall colors before the leaves all fell. It was been an honor to be friends with these two throughout the years, watching them grow […]

We’ve been photographing Valerie + Matt since they were dating. Their marriage is like a fine wine, it just keeps getting better with age! Now we’ve been photographing them with their two little girls for a few years and it never gets old. Lena and Libby are the most joyful babies to be around. I […]

Meet Valerie – one of my sweet seniors from this past summer who would rather look at the stars than watch TikTok. Valerie is so bright and it was a joy to talk to her about all the things that interest her during her session. She is a one-of-a-kind gal and I’m so excited to […]

I wanted to write this blog post after I announced in December of 2023 that Grant and I are no longer taking weddings. This comes as a surprise to many people – evidenced by my inbox which was full of messages after making the announcement. What shouldn’t come as a surprise is that we made […]
