There's nothing that lights me up more than when another photographer asks me for advice. "How do I charge for a shoot?", "How do I share my prices?", "I'm afraid of my client ghosting me.", "How do I get from my portrait business to just shooting boudoir?" Just to name a few.
When I first played with the idea of creating a boutique black and white only boudoir studio, I was afraid. I ran the idea across people that weren't my ideal client demographic and they didn't believe I could do such a niche of photography. Not only a boudoir niche, but a micro niche of black and white. I did it anyway and I took pictures!
I wanted this business bad enough to create it into existence and boy, has it taken off! During lock down in 2020 I decided to do an overhaul of my portfolio and website. While many photography studios were closing their doors, I was running ads and booking clients. I built my model program known as Boudoir Influencer and as we were in lock down longer (than expected) I told my clients there was no rescheduling fee. As everyone knew we wouldn’t have control of the state mandate, but it gave them something to look forward to.
I put a deposit on my studio in downtown Indianapolis on May 15th, 2020, had my first black and white boudoir client on the 20th, and booked out three months in advance with a wait list.
