HOMEWORK

Some things for you to work on before our first session.

In the Mentoring Questionnaire you listed your competitors. Take a moment to review each website and tell me what you like about their website as well as their images. If there is anything you don't like, please include that as well.
Explain who your ideal client is. What jobs might they have? What income do they bring in? Where do they shop? Where do they live? How much do they spend on wedding photography or portrait photography? What types of hobbies do you imagine they enjoy? Etc. Be as descriptive as you can.
Tell me your story in 200 words or less. Make it compelling. This should be the story that clients read and say "Oh my God, I love her" (before they even see your images). What makes you unique? What life experiences (good or bad) have shaped you the most?
Take a moment and tell my what industry websites you have an account with or have been published on. If someone were to google your business/brand name where else would they find you? (The Knot, Wedding Wire, Wedding Chicks, Borrowed & Blue, Etsy, Thumbtack, etc.)
