The first quarter of the year is always a time for me to catch up on lots of things. Update the website, tweak pricing and policies, renovate and clean out the prop room. It's also the time that I travel to conventions and seminars and spend time educating myself and learning the new trends, check out new equipment and try to keep up with technology changes.
Recently I attended PPA's Imaging USA! It's always a fun time and lots to take in. Lately I find myself sitting in on lectures about business and marketing, something I should have minored in, in College. I always come home with tons of news ideas and feeling inspired. After only being home for a few weeks I traveled South to attend a three day work shop with an amazing photographer in the industry. I have been following their work for several years and am always inspired by them. It is from these three days the the most changes are coming for the studio in 2018. I am planning an almost total revamp. When i am done, there will be all new sample images on the walls and a whole new set for children. I am being vague here because I want to make a big announcement once the transformation is complete. So stay tuned here and on the FB page for all of the details. I will also be having an open house to introduce our new product. THIS IS VERY EXCITING and will be worth the wait. -Shari.
