How do I get more clients in my photography business? When should I raise my prices? Can I make enough money with photography to support my family? What are the best ways to advertise my photography business? Which business model is best for my photography business? And the most asked question of all, can I really charge more, work less, and enjoy photography on a deeper creative level? Whether you’re a newbie photographer, it’s your side hustle, or you’re a seasoned pro, this show was made for you.

The Sustainable Freedom with Photography Podcast helps photographers get out of their ruts, sticking points, and holdups, because too many have traded in their 9-to-5 jobs for 24-7 hustles. We’ll shake off those feelings of uncertainty and self-doubt to uncover the business you’ve been dreaming about—and give it the TLC it needs to thrive, without you working (or wandering) in overdrive.

Host Tracy Lynn brings you marketing and business strategies, productivity tips, inspirational stories, and hard truths, but she does it with kindness, compassion, and empathy—earning the trust of photographers all over the world. She also shares actionable advice she used to build her seven figure boudoir photography studio in Saint Louis, MO working just 30 hours a month.

Along with sharing this wealth of knowledge, she also interviews women creatives in the industry who support photographers, as well as past clients, and other photographers who’ve achieved some of their biggest goals.

    097. What to Do If You Get a Bad Boudoir Review

    What To Do If You Get A Bad Review - Episode 97 of the Sustainable Freedom with Boudoir Photography Podcast with Tracy Lynn! So…you got a bad review in your boudoir photography biz. Such a bummer, right? I know how that feels and I’ve definitely had my fair share of them. It’s so frustrating because you immediately feel that the world has ended, like this one bad review is going to break your business. Spoiler alert: It won’t! Remember, stuff like this is inevitable. You can do absolutely everything right, and there will still be unhappy people. You can’t please everyone! But whether it’s in public on somewhere like Google reviews, or privately via DM or email, it’s so important to respond constructively to criticism. As a business owner, you’ve got to develop thick skin in that sense. You won’t enjoy criticism, but you CAN learn and grow from it. And that’s why in this episode, I want to show you five of my best tips for handling negative reviews as a photographer.

    This Photographer had an $11K January with Jessica Pimental - Episode 97 of the Sustainable Freedom with Boudoir Photography Podcast with Tracy Lynn!How Jessica Hit an $11K Month With the Help of Forever Booked OutI know that stepping out and going full-time as a boudoir photographer can be pretty intimidating. There’s the marketing, the client experience, the booking, the ordering sessions — and then you have to wear literally every hat in between to make things work. It’s a lot, and it can definitely stop you in your tracks! But I challenge you to think about what’s on the other side of that fear… A job you love. Working with people you enjoy, doing something you enjoy. Financial freedom. Freedom to work when you want, where you want. And so much more… You never know until you try, right? That’s why I want to introduce you to Jessica, a student from Forever Booked Out.
