I have a list long of goals and upcoming events planned for this next year. I am currently running 2 businesses, and 1 creative group (sneak peek to whats coming). I guess you could say I’m a busy person. I have lots of fun and exciting events/things coming in 2019.
JAN: Hosting wedding styled shoot CLICK HERE TO PARTICIPATE
FEB: Hosting my first workshop
MARCH: Hosting studio mini session for seniors & families
APRIL: Launching prom prices on my blog.
JUNE: Class of 2020 Rep Applications go live!
JULY: Another styled shoot? who knows I am super spontaneous.
NOV: Hosting christmas mini sessions for families.
The month’s that are blank will be filled, just haven’t thought about those months yet. I will also be putting a more in depth blog post a couple days before each other going over my availability for that month as well as any specials or events I will be hosting that month.
With everything going on I am also creating a creative group called “She Collective” this group is for everyone in the creative industry; whether it’s a small business owners, model, blogger, photographer, local florist, local wedding vendors, and anyone who pursues their creative outlet. She Collective will have monthly meetings, meet ups, and work dates. This is all about coming together as creatives and actually knowing the people we follow on social media. I love the idea of getting together and discusses branding, social media, and so much more with each other. Not only will we be creating long lasting relationships, but we can lift each other up! This group will be local to South Houston areas such as; Pearland, League City, Friendswood, Clear Lake, Kemah, Alvin, and Dickinson. These are areas in the community I hope She Collective will have creatives coming from.
She Collective’s first meeting will be on January 3rd of 2019 at Heritage Cafe in Friendswood, Texas at 5:00pm. We will be discussing our 2019 goals for our personal businesses and also self goals. If you can attend email me at email@example.com (I know it says 4 photographers, but I didn’t know what else to put)
Also, join the She Collective Facebook group and stay updated with everyone. Don’t hesitate to ask any questions for feedback on your work, new ideas, or help on something your struggling with. That’s what the FB Group is for! CLICK ME TO JOIN
INCREASING PRICING IN 2019
I cannot say it enough. I will be increasing all my current pricing to over more than double of what is it now. I will be adding more in the sessions and also making them more personal, especially for all senior sessions. The cost will include a consultation to plan your senior session. My current pricing for the basic senior session is $120, but in 2019 it will be $300. My pricing on everything will be increasing and I will be having a new website as well.
If you want a session in 2019, but want my current rates be sure to email me before the end of 2018. I will be waiving the fees for all that put down a 50% non refundable deposit on their session in 2019. If you would like more information on this, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
EMP will be giving back 10% of all sessions booked in 2019. I will be choosing a different non profit or organization each month where all proceeds will go and what that organization is all about. This information will be in the month’s blog post.
EVENTS I AM HOSTING
As you may have saw in the 2019 breakdown. I will be hosting a wedding styled shoot & it is open to photographers although spots are limited for this event. CLICK ME TO JOIN . I am also putting together my first ever workshop. Yes, I said workshop. Now I won’t be teaching anything I don’t know. I will be “teaching” aka sharing my knowledge on what I know over having a senior rep team and also how I plan my wedding styled shoots as well as styled shoots for my reps. This event will take place in February of 2019. There will also be some of my current senior reps as models, and a small wedding styled shoot set up there. I will be announcing the date, time, location, and ticket pricing all in late January.
CLASS OF 2020 REP TEAM
I know it’s super early to even be talking about this. But if your wondering I will be having a Class of 2020 rep team. I will be putting out the applications for this either the last week in May or first week of June, I still am deciding. The applications will only be up for 1 week! I will be making a ton of changes to this program for the next school year, as far as pricing, what you will get from the program, and all the shoots! I will be lowering the cost this year for the program. I will be taking a minimum of 6 girls and a maximum of 15 girls for this rep team. I currently have 8 girls on my rep team for Class of 2019 for reference. I will be doing a contact form as well as a questionnaire for this program and will be deciding within 1 week after the deadline. All information regarding the Class of 2020 rep team will be launched when applications go up. If you are interested in being a rep for EMP, please keep in mind I take this program very seriously. I love my girls and can’t thank them enough :,)
So, thats the end of this super long blog post. I am so excited for 2019 and my one year anniversary of doing photography, also stay tuned for whats to come for my one year :)
SOOOO MUCH LOVE,
