For YEARS I have been absolutely obsessed with boudoir photography. I adore it. I shoot it all the time. I live it. I breathe it. If I could smother it on toast and eat it, I would. Since the start of 2013, I have been gradually limiting the number of other types of photo shoots I've been taking on (weddings, engagements, and families, etc), and have really been focusing on narrowing my specialization.
As of TODAY, Click Chick Images is re-launching, re-directing, re-birthing into Click Chick Boudoir!!!
I've decided that 2014 was the year to rebuild a website to exclusively showcase my beauty & boudoir work. It's not just a blog anymore, and it's not just a small gallery on my website. It's my bread and butter. I can tell you that I am an extremely impulsive person...so the fact that I didn't jump into boudoir full-force years ago when I first discovered my passion for it really shows you how much time and thought I put into this change in direction.
You know what I discovered as I progressed through year after year of photography business? I'm not good at everything. This may seem like an obvious statement, but to many photographers (like me at one time), being a one-stop-shop seems like a great idea! Weddings, engagements, families, corporate events, product photos, fashion, construction sites?? "YES, sure! I can do that!". Rookie mistake. But throughout the years of fine-tuning my skills and shooting literally EVERYTHING under the sun, I slowly discovered what I loved and what I loathed. I discovered what I was fantastic at, what I was *ok* at with a little extra work, and what I was horrible at. I slowly uncovered my niche...and that is: WOMEN. I.am.good.at.WOMEN. I'm good at making women feel comfortable. I'm good at making women feel beautiful. I'm good at making women LOOK beautiful. I'm good at helping women discover their confidence. Beauty and Boudoir photography is where it's at for me. The saying "Stick to what you're good at!" echoed in my head over and over for years. I found that when I accepted a booking for something that wasn't my speciality, I was disappointed in my own work. It just didn't make sense for me to try to be something I wasn't. I am not a commercial photographer. I am not a family photographer. I am not a corporate event photographer.
Before I go too much further....I am going to tackle the question that everyone I let in on my little secret asked me with puppy dog eyes..."So...no more WEDDINGS!?!???". Here's the deal: I still love weddings. I still have a full year of weddings on the books. I will still continue to give each and every client my 100% best, as always. I will still consider accepting a very, very limited number of bookings for past clients and referrals. This is not the death of Click Chick Images. It's the re-birth :) It's the shift in specialization.
I want to concentrate on being the absolute BEST at one thing, rather than being pretty good at several.
SO THERE YOU HAVE IT, y'all!! I am SO excited for all of the amazing things to come! I have so many big plans in the works that I could have never accomplished by spreading myself so thin. I cannot wait to continue to make women realize how awesome they really are.
Go ahead and browse through the new site...get acquainted ;)
You can continue to follow my Facebook pages to see my upcoming wedding and engagement work. You'll also notice that I will be posting a lot more boudoir-related content. However, I will let you know that I fully intend to keep my social media posts consistent with my brand and style of boudoir: Classy, tasteful, and beautiful. Never trashy. :)
P.S. To celebrate my new "COMING OUT", I am offering $100 OFF any boudoir booking in the month of February! YESSSS!
