EP 239 | Photo Ready with Waterlily Interiors
September 14, 2021
Don’t wait for new clients to find you. Get intentional about growing your business. Designers Kelcey and Tracey hired a team, including a photographer and stylist to get their work published.
In this episode we learn:
- photograph your work—always
- use photos to tell an editorial story
- styling (that fits your aesthetic) is critical to creating beautiful photos
- outsource to help you build the business you want
- give individual items more breathing room to add dimension to photos
- keep lighting natural
- budgeting for accessories is essential if you plan to photograph
You can’t blame anyone but yourself for bad clients. Know what you want from relationships and stay true to those guidelines. We have had more fun and made more money by saying no to the wrong the client. We have used this time to work on our business and now, I can’t believe it, but we are going to be published in a national magazine. We are thrilled and are more excited about our business now more than ever.
