Shy Heart Studios <3
I am insanely excited about 2015!
2014 surprised the hell out of me. Changes I never expected slapped me right in the face – scaring the wits out of me… I may have even cried a little. I certainly metaphorically fell down the stairs and thought I might have broken every metaphorical bone in my body.
I called my Mom and said through some “poor me” tears, “I might have to get a real job….” – anyone who runs their own business knows those are words we NEVER want to utter. As my constant voice of reason she replied, “Don’t you dare. You can do this. I believe in you. I am not even remotely worried about you.”
I was like “Uh that’s great for you – but I’m worried about me! What do I do!?”
She just said, “You’ll figure it out. I know you will.” At the time I was frustrated because I WANTED her to give me the answers… “Tell me HOW I figure it out though!”
As afraid as I was, deep down I knew she was right. I could do this. It was time to sink or swim… and I am terrified of drowning, so I started swimming for dear life… because I knew what I wanted. I dried my metaphorical tears (and probably some real ones too) and went for it.
By April 2014 I had revamped my website and fired up the old dusty blog once again. I was spending 8 to 10 hours a day on my business and I was excited about it. By June I was still a little concerned, as I had nothing on the books for 2015… zilch…
But then my hard work started to pay off – I started getting some inquiries… and coming from someone who up until this point ONLY booked based off referrals while she was helping build a business for someone else and had put little to NOTHING into her own business for a very long time… this was very exciting.
By the end of the summer I had booked 8 weddings for 2015 and was starting to see the light at the end of the scary dark tunnel I entered in March 2014. I kept building relationships, I kept up with my blog, my website, my facebook, etc… and started more beautiful relationships with all of my AMAZING supporters at Wedgewood.
At the end of 2014 I rebranded my business again launching officially as a Shy Heart Studios, LLC in January 2015. I have begun to build an incredible team of photographers who I am SO proud to work with. Together we are the preferred photographers at THREE amazing Wedgewood properties (Wedgewood Vellano, Wedgewood Upland Hills and Wedgewood Sierra LaVerne), and I know we are going to knock it out of the park this year… In 6 months my business went from 0 weddings to 33 for 2015!! ….. And we plan to book many more!
