Boudie Biz Basics: Hampton Roads Boudoir Q&A

Before the New Year arrived, I locked myself in my studio and committed to writing down every single goal I had for 2016. At the top of the list, I made sure to put education.

In 2015 alone, I spent a few grand investing in one on one mentoring with industry leaders. But the money invested has been well worth the return.

Last year was the most profitable year for LeZandra Photography to date. Not only did I hit major milestones, but I added new team members to my team, moved into a killer new boudoir studio in Downtown Norfolk, and I lightened my workload exponentially, allowing me to spend serious quality time with my family while increasing profit.

As we enter the new year, I ask you, what are your goals for your business?

I receive a lot of emails from other photographers about boudoir. Most people are going in to their first session and are either feeling lost or scared or hundreds of other emotions that all lead them to seek help. A lot of them are overwhelmed by the business side of things and wanting advice on how to grow their business.

When I say that I live and breathe boudoir, I’m not kidding.

I am pretty much obsessed with this growing genre of photography.

I am extremely passionate about boudoir. It is far more than photographing an individual in a state of undress. It is far more than showing somebody how beautiful they are.

Boudoir is about allowing somebody to be vulnerable, powerful, and brazen.

Each client that walks through the doors of my studio comes in nervous but with the knowledge that they are entering into a safe haven where there are no apologies and no judgement.

I have cried with my clients. I have jumped up and down with my clients. And I have loved my clients so deeply.

We as photographers have a great responsibility to those who step in front of our lens.

Boudie Biz Basics is for those who are new to boudoir or looking to grow their boudoir business.

BBB is a loose Q&A style information session where no question is off limits!

Life kicks us around. A lot. Between the daily demands of existing and the trials we experience, being a human is hard. Being a woman is hard. Do this, do that, change this, fix that – it can feel incessant. Throw in kids and divorce and things can get even more complicated. Miss M wanted […]
