A little bit slower

I had the opportunity lately to attend a 3 day workshop with some remarkably talented women. I learned and listened and experienced. We came together to sift through all the different ways that people run their business and conduct their sessions. It made me think about so many aspects of my business. It’s hard to believe but this is the 15th year for Libby Lewis Photography. I’ve really fine tuned my sessions and my business to work for both me and my clients. It was refreshing to spend so much time with other accomplished working professionals. It clarified areas where I could challenge myself and also ways of shooting and presenting that might be interesting for my clients. One of the areas that I’ve thought about was the actual sessions. My sittings are usually pretty outgoing affairs – fun, funny, spirited adventures.  I was wondering what it would be like to slow that down a bit…to spend a little more time doing slower activities, in the home, slightly more scripted but less directed (if you know what I mean). I love the outcome…the number of different expressions and opportunities. But I also missed the interaction, the fast pace. And I also loved the clarity that it gave me into my style…in branching out I was able to give myself words for what it is that I do regularly so that I could compare it to what I was presently doing. I don’t know if this experience will ultimately be something that I’ll offer or incorporate but I do know that the stretch was invaluable.
