Mom Bossing... Like a Boss

January 03, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

As you may already know, I'm Brittany; the owner / photographer / sole-employee of BLP Photography.

"What does that mean?!"

It means from the initial *click* of my website... to the email or text correspondence... to the lawyer-written booking forms... to the confirmation correspondence 1-3 days prior to your session... to the person behind the camera, making you laugh with the corny jokes... to the culling, editing, and uploading... to the equipment maintenance... to the studio laboring... to the set designs... to the vendor contacting... to the book layouts... to the ordering... to the product quality control... to the financial book keeping... to the tax filing................

All. Of. That. Is. Me.

That means; when you're hiring a small business owner, you're hiring a real, live person without a couple million in an account untouchable due to tax loopholes. 

A real, live mom who, also, has 2 children at home full time. One of which, is home schooled. 
A real, live woman who's husband is military affiliated so his schedule means hiring a babysitter is absolutely required and has to be factored into cost.

Being all of these things means juggling all of the tasks of a full time job, while handling everything that you have to do as a mother, wife, and woman, as well. 

Sometimes, "working from home" can mean staring at your work on your computer screen while being distracted by: the laundry piling up, dishes needing washing, children getting into the playdoh box, a dog chewing on something that use to be a toy.

All of this... and I still wouldn't trade my profession for a single profession in the world. Why? Because I absolutely LOVE photographing your life's milestones. I LOVE photography. I LOVE the process. I LOVE the freedom it can bring.

Next time you see a Mom Boss: buy the woman a coffee and tell her she's doing amazing! Sometimes, they need to hear it ;)
