This blog is a daunting thing for me. The irony is that for 10 years I kept an online journal. I was even published once in a booklet for the homeless as inspiration to them about what family could be.
So why is it I could write there but not here? The problem, I believe, is that there I did a lot of ranting and personal sharing, but here I have always tried to put on a business face for Luciddream. I wanted to build my company showing how professional I was. The schooling and training. I think the part of me that holds the business degree forgot about the part of me that's creative.
That means for me 2014 will be about being professional AND building relationships. I don't want the one time client who's looking for the best deal before moving on to the next deal. I want the client who I can watch grow. I want to capture their wedding, and then their maternity, birth, newborn and family photos. To do this I will be building a referral program and a returning client price list so that coming to see me and my studio can be, as a minimum, an annual thing. This being said I'd love for those reading to send me a email about their wants. In terms of session lengths and final products.
My goal for 2014 will be to reach out, blog often and build this company into something special.
