Showit SHARE Group

  • August 2012

me all the time “Who did your website!?” and the answer is always so complicated. If you’re talking about the Blog, Flosites designed it and they did a magnificent job. I loved working with them and I’m STILL working with them! If you’re talking about my Website, I designed it through Showit! The thing about Showit is that it’s not just a web design platform, it’s a community! Now, do I pay $39 a month to have friends? No, the community of Showit is just an added bonus and I really cherish these relationships! We recently had a Share Group meetup in Downtown the other night. It’s hard to get together in the middle of CRAZY season

Britt was so excited… and a little nervous because  everything about

Coaching Sessions

  • September - November 2012

best decisions I have made during this wedding season was to start offering coaching sessions! I REALLY enjoy getting to know new photog friends, hearing their story and helping them take steps to move forward in their business. Some have asked if coaching sessions are ONLY for beginners and my answer to that is NO. I think beginners have a lot of initial “getting started” questions but I have met with photographers that have yet to shoot their first wedding and photographers that are in their 3rd year of shooting. It’s for anyone that is looking to grow their business and needs a little jumpstart.
