December and January Instagrams

Here are the last part of December and all of January’s Instagram posts.  It is where I post my portrait business images.  Stuff that you won’t necessarily see here except for when I do these little updates.  Feel free to follow me on Instagram if that is your thing, too.

Bookworm

My daughter found this quaint little shop with a variety of artisans and vendors selling their wares within. Tucked back deep inside was a tiny book nook.

I had my Sony with me, but my flash wasn’t fired to full power when I hit the shutter. I was in too much of a hurry, trying to get a shot in between the other customers bearing down on us. We waited around a little bit, hoping for it to clear out some, but it never did.

So, I just took what I had and made it kind of artsy. I present to you:

Catch UP

Where have the weeks gone?  The months?  My goodness!  It has been two (months) since I have been here.  I have been spending many hours volunteering at the Young People’s Theater group my daughter belongs to as they prepare to present the “Nutcracker” next weekend.

I have also been very busy working on my new portrait photography business. Working with families and editing portraits is something I am enjoying more than I ever could have imagined.

I am hoping it will grow more come spring when the weather warms up since most people don’t think about doing outdoor portraits in the cold winter months. I have had a handful of inquires from strangers, but up to this point all of my clients have been family or friends. Again, I am hoping this changes come spring. I know it will if it is meant to be. God willing, all things happen the way they are supposed to, so I am not worried.

One thing I have been doing is keeping up on my Instagram account.  I post mostly images from my portraits sessions there.  So, I’ll end by leaving you with my last two months of Instagram images.

I went exploring last week and found a great new place to take clients for portrait sessions. I am shooting a family there this Friday.  Can’t wait!

July’s Instagram Images

I’ve been busy editing my first client’s portraits this week! Very exciting stuff! So, all I’ve had time to do is post on Instagram at night while I am lying in bed waiting to fall asleep. 🙂 Here are July’s images.

I have been busy setting up my new portrait photography business!  I finally took the plunge and made the name, “Offshoots Photography,” official by registering it with the Secretary of State.  I also registered with the Department of Revenue for my retail sales license; applied for my local business license; hired a company to do my logo, here it is:

OFFSHOOTS PHOTOGRAPHY Logo Tagline jpgI hired the same company to design my business cards; created a Facebook Page (Like it here); created a website (check it out here); created all my forms from scratch; aaaaaand….the most exciting thing:

I had my first official portrait session yesterday! So exciting! I won’t be blogging about them here, but instead on my business blog at Offshoots Photography Blog.

There’s nothing there yet, but will be soon, so make sure to follow.

In the meantime, I will be posting here again, as well, now that the business is mostly set up. Here are some pet portraits of my pooches. I can’t believe I actually got them to sit still long enough to take these.
