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.

    092. 3 Ways Photographers Use Instagram INCORRECTLY

    3 Ways Photographers Use Instagram INCORRECTLY - Episode 92 of the Sustainable Freedom with Boudoir Photography Podcast with Tracy Lynn! I hear A LOT of photographers complain about having to use Instagram to grow their business. And hey, I get it. The algorithm is confusing, and sometimes it can feel like you’re under its thumb, with not a whole lot of wiggle room to do things YOUR way. 
     
    But the truth is, Instagram is a much needed tool for photographers of any niche — and especially boudoir photographers! And while I know it may not feel this way, it can do a lot to get you in front of your ideal clients, booke more sessions, and ultimately, grow your biz. 
     
    So in this episode of the show, I want to break down a few of the Instagram mistakes photographers are making. We’re going to look at WHY they’re holding you back, and what you can do to fix it!

    091. How Boudoir Photography Differs From Other Styles

    How Boudoir Photography Differs From Other Styles - Episode 91 of the Sustainable Freedom with Boudoir Photography Podcast with Tracy Lynn! 10 Reasons Why You Need to Run Your Boudoir Photography Business Differently From Other Photographers. I LOVE being a boudoir photographer but I have to be honest. This industry does come with a little bit of stigma. When I first started out, I was judged a lot by people who knew me, and people who didn’t, about the work I did. I wasn’t taken very seriously…until people saw the money I was bringing in from it. Here’s the thing — boudoir is ART. And people are willing to pay for that art. A lot of people can’t see past their own judgments to realize that, though. And as a boudoir photographer yourself, I KNOW you understand! You’ve likely ran into the same situation plenty of times. Boudoir photographers don’t often get taken as seriously as other photographers do. But that’s not the only way a boudoir photography business differs from other styles of photography. There are LOADS more where that came from! So in this episode, we’re going to be talking about ten of them. #boudoirphotographer #boudoir #boudoirphotographytipsRESOURCES MENTIONED IN THIS EPISODE:The Boudoir Album: https://theboudoiralbum.com/ Graphistudio: https://www.graphistudio.com/en/ White House Custom Color: https://www.whcc.com/ Join my email list for more photography tips and tricks: https://rebrand.ly/tlcnewsletter Watch my FREE Masterclass to learn how to book out your photography schedule! https://tracylynncoaching.com/booked-out-photographer-registration/ 📧 TLC Newsletter: https://rebrand.ly/tlcnewlsetter✨ FREE GUIDES✨→Grab my FREE One-Page PDF: 5 Tips to Book Photography Clients Without Using Facebook Ads: https://tracylynncoaching.com/marketing-strategy/download/ → Hit your first six figures in the next 12 months with this FREE Guide: Five Targets To Spot-Check In Your Boudoir Business This Year: https://tracylynncoaching.com/marketing-strategy/targets-spot-check-boudoir-business/ 🚀 GROW YOUR BOUDOIR PHOTOGRAPHY BUSINESS FAST! 🚀→ Forever Booked Out, The high-level marketing program for photographers to book sessions now–and in the future. https://tracylynncoaching.com/forever-booked-out/ → Boudoir Studio Accelerator, The blueprint to a six-figure boudoir studio: https://tracylynncoaching.com/boudoir-studio-accelerator/ ❤️FOLLOW ME/GET IN TOUCH❤️Hey, I'm Tracy!

    090. Boudoir Photography Trends I LOVE (And Hate)

    Boudoir Photography Trends I LOVE (And Hate) - Episode 90 of the Sustainable Freedom with Boudoir Photography Podcast with Tracy Lynn! When you think of boudoir photography trends, what comes to mind? In the late 90s/early 2000s, it was all the rage to have black and white or extra vignette-style photos. Then, in the 2010s, super-matte photos were the big thing. And then, it went to orange skin tones with mint green hues.  And at the time, we all thought they were super cute. But now, we look back at old photos and probably cringe a little, right?  What I’m trying to say is that trends will come and go. What you see now isn’t always going to be popular ten, fifteen, or even five years from now.  However, there are some things that never go out of style! And for that reason, I have to call them my favorite boudoir photography trends. Which is exactly what we’ll be looking at in this episode, so you can see how to build one timeless portfolio (and ultimately, business)!RESOURCES MENTIONED IN THIS EPISODE:Boudoir Studio Accelerator: https://tracylynncoaching.com/boudoir-studio-accelerator/ Join my email list for more photography tips and tricks: https://rebrand.ly/tlcnewsletter  #boudoirphotographer #boudoir #boudoirphotographytipsWatch my FREE Masterclass to learn how to book out your photography schedule! https://tracylynncoaching.com/booked-out-photographer-registration/ 📧 TLC Newsletter: https://rebrand.ly/tlcnewlsetter✨ FREE GUIDES✨→Grab my FREE One-Page PDF: 5 Tips to Book Photography Clients Without Using Facebook Ads: https://tracylynncoaching.com/marketing-strategy/download/ → Hit your first six figures in the next 12 months with this FREE Guide: Five Targets To Spot-Check In Your Boudoir Business This Year: https://tracylynncoaching.com/marketing-strategy/targets-spot-check-boudoir-business/ 🚀 GROW YOUR BOUDOIR PHOTOGRAPHY BUSINESS FAST! 🚀→ Forever Booked Out, The high-level marketing program for photographers to book sessions now–and in the future. https://tracylynncoaching.com/forever-booked-out/ → Boudoir Studio Accelerator, The blueprint to a six-figure boudoir studio: https://tracylynncoaching.com/boudoir-studio-accelerator/ ❤️FOLLOW ME/GET IN TOUCH❤️Hey, I'm Tracy!

    089. How To Create An Easy Boudoir Posing Flow

    4 Ways to Create an Easier Boudoir Photography Posing Sequence Episode 89 of the Sustainable Freedom with Boudoir Photography Podcast with Tracy Lynn! For the first few years in my photography business, I went into sessions so stressed out! I was a nervous wreck about not getting every photo a client wanted or if they could tell I didn’t know what I was doing. It wasn’t very fun and to be honest, it made me dread sessions. I still remember pulling up poses from Instagram and Pinterest while my client was changing outfits, just trying to have enough poses to get through the session. On top of everything else I had to focus on during the session, it wore me out. But now with some experience under my belt, I’ve realized that the way to avoid this is to create a session that’s repeatable. Because it ensures you keep things running smoothly. (Which…pssst…means less overwhelm for YOU!) So how do you create a repeatable session? The first step is to build a boudoir photography posing sequence that is too. And in this episode, I’m going to show you four ways you can do just that!RESOURCES MENTIONED IN THIS EPISODE:Boudoir Studio Accelerator: https://tracylynncoaching.com/boudoir-studio-accelerator/ Come say hi on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/itstracylynn/?hl=en Join my email list for more photography tips and tricks: https://rebrand.ly/tlcnewsletter #boudoirphotographer #boudoir #boudoirphotographytipsWatch my FREE Masterclass to learn how to book out your photography schedule! https://tracylynncoaching.com/booked-out-photographer-registration/  📧 TLC Newsletter: https://rebrand.ly/tlcnewlsetter✨ FREE GUIDES✨→Grab my FREE One-Page PDF: 5 Tips to Book Photography Clients Without Using Facebook Ads: https://tracylynncoaching.com/marketing-strategy/download/  → Hit your first six figures in the next 12 months with this FREE Guide: Five Targets To Spot-Check In Your Boudoir Business This Year: https://tracylynncoaching.com/marketing-strategy/targets-spot-check-boudoir-business/ 🚀 GROW YOUR BOUDOIR PHOTOGRAPHY BUSINESS FAST! 🚀→ Forever Booked Out, The high-level marketing program for photographers to book sessions now–and in the future. https://tracylynncoaching.com/forever-booked-out/ → Boudoir Studio Accelerator, The blueprint to a six-figure boudoir studio: https://tracylynncoaching.com/boudoir-studio-accelerator/ ❤️FOLLOW ME/GET IN TOUCH❤️Hey, I'm Tracy!

    How To Become a 6-figure Boudoir Photographer - Episode 88 of the Sustainable Freedom with Boudoir Photography Podcast with Tracy Lynn! How to make 6 Figures as a Boudoir Photographer in 2024 (And Finally Leave Your 9-5!). When I was starting my boudoir photography business back in 2013, all I wanted to do was create something that could replace my 9-5 job as a dental hygienist. I hated that no matter how hard I worked, it seemed like I didn’t make any progress. Or really, that the hard work I was putting in wasn’t reflected in my salary — and didn’t afford me the freedom I craved. It took me four years to build a business that could support me enough to go full-time, and although I have no regrets, I don’t want this to happen to you. I want you to make the switch so much faster than I did. Because it is possible. In this episode, I’m going to break down how you can build a path toward making 6 figures as a boudoir photographer (and create a business that supports the life you want to live!).#boudoirphotographer #boudoir #boudoirphotographytipsWatch my FREE Masterclass to learn how to book out your photography schedule! https://tracylynncoaching.com/booked-out-photographer-registration/  📧 TLC Newsletter: https://rebrand.ly/tlcnewlsetter✨ FREE GUIDES✨→Grab my FREE One-Page PDF: 5 Tips to Book Photography Clients Without Using Facebook Ads: https://tracylynncoaching.com/marketing-strategy/download/  → Hit your first six figures in the next 12 months with this FREE Guide: Five Targets To Spot-Check In Your Boudoir Business This Year: https://tracylynncoaching.com/marketing-strategy/targets-spot-check-boudoir-business/ 🚀 GROW YOUR BOUDOIR PHOTOGRAPHY BUSINESS FAST! 🚀→ Forever Booked Out, The high-level marketing program for photographers to book sessions now–and in the future. https://tracylynncoaching.com/forever-booked-out/ → Boudoir Studio Accelerator, The blueprint to a six-figure boudoir studio: https://tracylynncoaching.com/boudoir-studio-accelerator/ ❤️FOLLOW ME/GET IN TOUCH❤️Hey, I'm Tracy!
