Chrissy Rose for boudoir photography and business photography for women
It is official! Chrissy Rose Photography is a boudoir and personal branding photographer - exclusively!
I know, I know… I rebranded and made the change more than 9 months ago so you may have already noticed and you’re probably thinking “why is she telling us this now”. Well, I never announced it publicly. I didn’t follow one of my own principles of personal branding -- advice I pass on to all my business photography clients.
It was a monumental switch! I established Chrissy Rose Photography in 2010 as a photographer of families and children. Then I eased into photographing weddings and by 2017, wedding photography was almost 80% of my business.
I loved working with wedding clients for a long time. But you can probably imagine that being a wedding photographer is hard! It requires an extreme level of detail, care and post production. It is a very demanding genre. And after 8 wedding seasons, I burned out.
On the other hand, I was fiercely drawn to photographing women in the boudoir style and I also love working with fellow female entrepreneurs. So while I was being drained by one genre, I was being inspired and motivated by the other.
After my 2017 wedding season, I decided to stop the madness by declining anymore wedding contracts and start my business over, but this time working toward these more niche genres of photography that I was authentically passionate about.
The above photo was taken of me after my final wedding.
At first it was scary and overwhelming -- I mean, I was literally turning my business upside down.
Now, 9 months into the rebrand and I am happier than I ever have been in my business and I excited about what’s to come.
Here is what else I noticed since making the change:
My stress level diminished significantly.
I found tremendous clarity.
I sleep better.
I connect with my clients on a whole new level.
I network more confidently.
I am eager to explore new creative opportunities to support my business.
I enjoy spending my Saturdays with my family and friends.
I feel more whole as a person and as a business.
I finally feel like I am leveling up as a photographer and as a business owner.
