Mistake 1: Overspending on Equipment – Work Smarter, Not Harder

Okay, let’s get real for a sec. I know those shiny, brand-new cameras and fancy lenses are calling your name, but hold up! πŸ’Έ Investing in expensive gear you don’t know how to use won’t magically make you a better photographer. Trust me, I built my entire studio on a trusty, pre-loved camera, and it’s served me well! Instead of breaking the bank, focus on mastering manual mode and making the most of what you’ve got. Your skills matter more than the price tag, darling! You can get my help with mastering manual mode, HERE!

Mistake 2: Pricing Blindly – Know Your Worth, Set Your Value

Another photography business mistake is pricing! 🎟️ It’s tempting to look at what everyone else is charging and base your prices on that, but hold your horses! Pricing like your competitors will only leave you feeling undervalued and overworked. Take a deep breath and crunch those numbers – what’s your cost of doing business? Need help with this?

Your journey is YOURS and yours alone, so stop measuring your beginning against someone else’s middle or end! Instead, draw inspiration from your fellow photographers and celebrate your own unique style and growth in my members only Facebook group! Your clients love you for YOU, so own it!
