Oh boy do I need to do some catching up on the blog!!! Well, here’s a start…
I was enjoying lunch at Yesterday’s sandwich shop in town on Valentine’s Day with my guy. I love this place!! It’s dangerously close to the studio (about 30 steps!) and so yummy!!
Anyhow, while we were eating I noticed at the next table a couple of young moms with their babies and I cringed that I left my wallet with cards in the studio. So I walked down real quick to grab a handful and went back to sit and try to muster up the courage to talk to these strangers…not just talk but promote myself. My guy was no help, bless his heart, he’s so shy. He goes, “I wouldn’t do it.” Thanks for the help honey!!
As they’re getting ready to leave I’m losing my chance to spread the word of my just opened photography studio, so I walk over and begin to introduce myself as a photographer and hand them my cards. One of them starts laughing and says, “Were you listening to our conversation?” Oh, bleep! is pretty much what crossed my mind. What did I do?!
They said they were just talking about getting the kids’ photos taken and then I come up and introduce myself. Purely a divine coincidence. I did NOT eavesdrop on potential clients!! haha (not saying I wouldn’t, but I simply didn’t this time)
Lindsey emailed me and came in the studio to set up Mr. Kase’s photo session for his first birthday which had just passed the week before. After all was said and done I am SOOOO happy I went over and talked to them. Kase is absolutely precious and hopefully a new life long client!!
