I owe a lot to this lovely lady! Not only did Candice hire me for her engagement photos, but she hired me a few short years later for maternity photos and then this summer she hired me AGAIN for a photography mentoring session!
What a pure joy it’s been to have seen Candice go through these stages of life and now, starting her own photography business! She is passionate and determined, and for even those reason alone I know she is going to go far.
We met up in Coventry at a local coffee shop for her mentoring session. We talked all about her business aspirations and things that did and didn’t work so far in her pursuit of becoming a full-time photographer.
We talked about pricing, how to set yourself apart, how to be efficient when it comes to editing and sharing your work online. We even talked about insurance and registering as a Sole Trader. I told Candice prior to her mentoring session that I’m an open book so she can ask anything! I love how in-depth we went into the emotional aspects of running your own business but also the nitty-gritty things like finance and websites. We were both even in tears at one point- I just loved seeing Candice’s passion brewing and I’m excited to watch as she continues to take leaps forward into pursuing her passion!
To end every mentoring session, I give everyone a short headshot and portrait photo shoot. See some of my favorites of Candice here and check out her links below!
If you’d like to chat more about a mentoring session, please do get in touch! There’s no pressure whatsoever, I would just love to hear from you. :)
