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.

    What’s one business “rule” that you found online, or someone told you to follow? Like “fake it until you make it” or “it takes money to make money.” These rules get thrown around a lot because, honestly, they work for some people. And they can inspire many people.

    027. Growing a Successful Boudoir Business with Robby and Faith of Faith Ray Boudoir

    027. Growing a Successful Boudoir Business with Robby and Faith of Faith Ray Boudoir

    Earlier this summer on the Sustainable Freedom with Photography Podcast, I interviewed Faith Ray of Faith Ray Boudoir. We met in September 2021, and since then, we’ve been working together on her boudoir business. (You can hear all the details in our past episode!)
    At the beginning, a boudoir photo business was just a dream for Faith. But she’s had such an incredible journey building her biz, booking clients, and even moving cities in Texas. She’s even booked out until the end of this year!
    That’s why I wanted to bring Faith back onto the podcast to see what’s changed and what’s in store for the future. I also wanted to talk to her husband, Robby, to get his perspective on seeing his spouse build a successful business from the ground up.

    024. 2 Elements of a Successful Boudoir Business (That Aren’t Your Photography Skills)

    What makes your boudoir photography business a success? Like, what does it take? Sure, you need some skill behind the camera. Creativity helps. Knowing how to encourage clients to feel comfortable to look natural and beautiful helps, too.
    That’s the “photography” side of the business. What about the “business” side of your business? To me, the two biggest elements of a successful boudoir business are:
    pricing your services according to your worth 
    having an effective marketing strategy.
    For creative professionals like you and me, the photography side is usually a breeze. It’s these other elements that can be challenging. But I’m here to help you out, so let’s talk about how you can price your services accurately and market your business well.
