Portland Maine Maternity, Newborn, and Baby Photographer Tiffany Farley, http://tiffanyfarley.com

Over the years, I have found the most common problem for families is figuring out what to do with their images after a session. That initial feeling of overwhelm can unfortunately lead to years of your favorite family photographs just sitting in a Facebook Album or soon forgotten desk drawer.

I know you chose to work with me for more than that.

I am so passionate for creating timeless black & white portraits for mothers & their families that will be long adored for generations, and I make sure to offer the very best quality presentation to do so. I adore seeing your photographs printed, and I do all that I can to provide a personal ordering experience for each of my clients, that makes each and every decision as simple and exciting as possible.

Let’s see your photographs up on the walls, and printed in your home as beautiful artwork where your loved ones can cherish them everyday.

One of the most timeless presentations for your family photographs is the classic album. I recently added a brand new album style that I am over the moon excited about. Introducing: The Heirloom Book. 

This custom linen covered, hand-bound album has thick, soft, fine art paper pages that are dreamy to touch and hold. The Silk Vellum Interleaves between each and every page create an exquisite viewing experience for your most adored family portraits. I’m truly obsessed with how dreamy she is, and can’t wait to see all of the beautiful images that will fill yours in the season ahead. Want a closer look? Get ready to drool.

Portland Maine Black and White Film Newborn Photographer Tiffany Farley, http://tiffanyfarley.comWe often start our own business so that we can make our own rules. We want to be our own boss, and design our own days. From the 9-5 cubicle, owning your own business looks like a total dream world, doesn’t it?

Not enough people talk about how overwhelming making these rules can actually feel. We don’t just want to run any business. We want to build a successful & sustainable business. We want to invest where it matters. We want to live in the Pinterest Painting that says I have created a business that serves my life, and not a life that serves my business. It’s not always as easy as it sounds, but I do think it’s possible, and definitely worth fighting for.

One of the best investments I have made in my business is slow growth.

“Success is a fruit of slow growth.”

I was working as a full-time, live-in nanny when I decided that photography was something I wanted
to do as a business, and no longer just a fun hobby. I would work my full-time job, often 10 or 11 hour days, and then work evenings and weekends slowly building my business.

There were seasons where my schedule was overly full, but I kept my full-time job as long as I could manage. This allowed me to make decisions without the financial strain that depending soley on your business as income can create. Since my photography business was not paying for my bills, it allowed me to pour 100% of the profit right back into business growth. It allowed me to intentionally choose the clients I would book, and the type of sessions I would take on- which in turn built my specialized brand!

I am so grateful for slow growth, because it pushed my brand roots deeper. It gave me the opportunity to align my business plan about what really matters to me, so that when I did go full-time, I was really ready for it.

If you are still working a full-time job while building your business, don’t count it as a negative thing! Slow growth seasons are so valuable, and there’s no need to rush to the top.

I would much rather grow slowly towards something meaningful, fulfilling, and sustainable, than quickly towards something that won’t last.

Portland Maine Baby and Family Photographer Tiffany Farley, http://tiffanyfarley.comEarlier this year, I made a goal in my business to better care for my email subscribers. I not only wanted to be more consistent in how often I sent my email newsletters out, but I also committed to not sending anything out unless it was filled with quality content. Because there’s a lot of noise out there, and I just had no interest in adding to it.

And to be honest, I haven’t been perfect at this so far. In fact, it’s something I want to do a whole lot better in the year to come, and I have been working SO hard behind the scenes to make it happen!

The biggest “aha” moment I had this fall when I got thinking of how to serve my email subscribers better, was that I actually no longer want to send out an Email Newsletter at all. I no longer want to create these pretty emails, and then send them to this amazing list of subscribers- while never really getting to know who it is that I am even talking to. I have felt like something was MISSING here, but I just didn’t know exactly what it was or how to fix it.

But then it hit me… I don’t just want to build a successful Email Newsletter- I instead want to build a Community of Conversation.

Every time you open an email from me, I want you to feel like we are having coffee together. I agree with you, it’s an over-used analogy, but man it just really fits what I have in store for us…Connection, Community, & Conversation.

Yesterday I bravely shared this new vision and opened the first conversation, a bit unsure how it would be received, or if it would be read with the same kind of heart I wrote from. And let me tell you, I was OVERWHELMED in the best possible way by the response. The beautiful, beautiful response. 

Moms. Photographers. Dreamers…you filled my inbox with exactly what I hoped for. And for the first time, I actually felt like this whole email thing was RIGHT.

 

I am so pumped for this fresh start, and I can’t wait to get all of the conversations rolling. In the meantime, does this sound like a community of conversation that you want in on? You can join us by entering your email below. I can’t wait to learn more about you!!!
