So today I was looking over some of my recent babies and I thought I would talk a little bit about how I started this company. I ventured out on my own in photography a little over 6 years ago. I bought a nice Nikon camera and a brand new Mac and thought I was set. Started a business with a co-worker and we were off! Little did I know how much actually went into this new venture I started.
After working with the friend for less than 6 months, we decided to split ways and create our own companies. She ended up getting away from photography completely. So that is how Precious Image Photography began while pregnant with my last child. So until she was about 2 I didn’t truly become serious about making this work. She is now almost 5. Things are going great!
Why babies? Well I worked at the baby hospital in my local area for over 4 years as the Photography Manager. I learned there that I love working with babies. I also got plenty of experience with them. This gave me the safety knowledge and the skills needed. I also got the experience of working with the new moms and learning how to listen to them and understanding whether this is their first child or fourth, how different they can be.
How adorable is a sleeping baby?
So I learned and absorbed as much as I could. I would watch videos, attend workshops, and learn from anyone willing to teach me. I have come so far and I love that the learning will never end! My skills are always improving and my love for this deepens. Photography is such an amazing gift to have and share!
