    009 : Top 5 Birth Photography Tips for Newbies {what I wish I knew when I started}

    009 : Top 5 Birth Photography Tips for Newbies {what I wish I knew when I started}

    When I started in birth photography 8 years ago, every time I posted a photo, I thought - Will this offend someone? Will people unlike my page if I post this? Is this photo “too much?”
    If even 1 person thought it was inappropriate, I let it affect my business, my marketing and my confidence. These fears & insecurities swirled in my head and slowed me down, until I realized… “If I have a passion & drive for birth photography - it’s for a REASON. It’s because I’m made to be a birth photographer.” And the same thing is true for you my friend! Your passion isn’t there on accident, and that passion is not something everyone feels!
    Then, I started sharing photos that lit me up. Photos of babies being born. Moms in the throws of labor. Families meeting those babies in the hospital room and at home. Sometimes photos of placentas 🤭
    And you know what? I got unlikes and unfollows. But I also got a LOT of new people liking my page, following along and hiring me!
    So, I’m here to encourage you!
    I pushed through those fears, and now have, photographed well over 100 births, a photography studio in my town, 3 team members and retired my husband with my birth photography business. 
    Which is why in this episode, I’m going to share with you my top 5 tips for new birth photographers (things I wish I knew back then).

    005 : The path to your best life as a creative entrepreneur (and how to do it)

    005 : The path to your best life as a creative entrepreneur (and how to do it)

    Would you believe me if I said that I truly believe the path to your best life as a mom & creative entrepreneur is through self-care?
    Here’s the deal: I know how often the buzz word “self care” get thrown around.
    But despite it’s trendiness, I know there is a lot of value to the idea of self-care! So, I want to unpack “self-care” to discover …. what does “self-care” really look like day to day? Why does it matter? And, how can you actually use self care + personality tests like the enneagram to create the path to your best life?
    We’re digging deep in a fantastic conversation with my friend Liz Cook, owner of the International association of birth photographers, on how to ACTUALLY take care of yourself in a way that improves your life, your family’s life and supports the growth of your business.

    004 : 4 Ways to Create Your COVID-19 Comeback

    Flip on the news for 2 seconds these days, and it could send you into a spiral of panic and worry. Jump into your favorite creative entrepreneur Facebook group and the topics have shifted to things like, “How can I make sure my business survives this?” “How can I stay relevant as a service based business who can’t work anymore?” and “Should I be advertising right now?” “I feel like things are just at a standstill.” Sound familiar?
    My friend, there is life on the other side of COVID 19.
    I created this episode to share my 4 Ways to Create Your COVID-19 Comeback. These are things I’ve personally been doing in my birth photography business and working through, because giving up isn’t an option.

Not just for the ladies

This podcast has been great to listen to, and gets me motivated in my business. While Tavia is mainly talking to the ladies out there, any guy wanting to grow his business would be stupid not to listen to this podcast. It’s sound and solid advise for ANYONE trying to run a business, especially in the creative field.
My wife and I are both working towards being full time photographers, and we both listen to the podcast and love it!
