This is why I chose portrait photography as a point of focus in my business.
I am a member of quite a few networking groups geared towards women, or women in creative fields around Vancouver. At these groups, you are often asked to pitch about your business, and express your “why”.
I am not always the most social butterfly, or like being vulnerable in front of people I don’t know well. Which is why some group members have mentioned that it’s interesting to see me talk about my business so passionately.
During one of these meetings, it was suggested I sit down and talk about my business so that you all can see this is why I chose to focus on portrait photography for women in particular.
The thumbnail that Youtube chose for the video is incredibly and hilariously bad. Luckily I can now cover it with a more lovely image.
I am pretty self deprecating at the best of times and it was probably quite an accurate reflection of how I speak in real life, so I was happy to go with it.
The video also features my fur-children, which if you ever meet me in person you will know kitties mean a lot to me.
Sadly one of the kitties featured is no longer with us, but I love that he is in this and his legacy can live on.
