Gosh, time sure has flown by already. It's starting to get warmer outside and the snow has finally disappeared (please don't shoot me if we get a flurry now!). I've been as busy as a bee sorting my accounts for last year and trying to become organised for the twenty-thirteen/fourteen year.
I've only had a couple of shoots so far, one being a wonderful wedding of a friend of mine, who looked absolutely stunning! I'm still busy editing away on the 400+ final photos, but thought i'd take a short break to reflect on the year so far.
I'm slowly starting to kick myself in to gear on the promotional side of my business. I mean if I ever want it to become a full time 'hobby', i'm not using job, as it makes it sound like a chore when it's not, I love what I do! I need to start advertising myself a little more. Ideally I'd like to revamp my whole portfolio, portraiture and fashion side. I'd like to make a bold/brave or possibly silly move but i'ma withhold that information from you for just a little longer.
I'm going to approach some shops/nurseries/doctors and see whether they will let me advertise my business. I'll make a few poster and take a couple of price lists/business cards too. I've got a batch of business cards, magnetic business cards, gift vouchers and car door magnets on their way to me. So I should hopefully be able to spread the love of Marie-Louise Hall Photography within the next couple of weeks.
I'll give you more of a picture update sometime after the bank holiday.. i'll leave you with a photo of the new Mrs Oakey and her husband!
