I just wanted to give everyone a little update on my photography business. First off- I’M STILL SHOOTING WEDDINGS!
Life and schedules had some uncertainty that made it difficult to take on many weddings, so I wasn’t actively seeking weddings last year. I have been doing professional photography for over 8 years and plan on taking photos for the rest of my life, but being self-employed has some draw backs. For one, you get taxed like crazy and everyone wants a piece of the pie. Of course I can always make up random deductions and never claim what I actually earn but that is not honest and I pride myself in being transparent.
There is also the issue of security with being self-employed. I wanted to provide consistency for my OCD wife 😉 and for our adorable little baby girl that will be born soon.
So I got a “9-5” job (that term isn’t the most accurate but it is consistent). Nevertheless, I will work as hard as ever to make sure my clients receive service with a smile.
I am beyond excited for the clients that I do have this year and for all the ones in the future.
Some people were just asking what was going on in the Mayer camp so I wanted to keep everyone in the loop. Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you need wedding or family portraits!
Here’s an oldie, but a goodie!!
