Sara’s Day With Drew

It’s been awhile since I’ve done a mentoring session.  The great thing about not shooting weddings anymore is that I have more time to work with other photographers and help them achieve their business dreams.

Sara from Sara Barnes Photography came all the way from North Carolina.  I’m not going to say that having a photographer fly across the country just for a mentoring session with me isn’t intimidating.  It is a little.  But, Sara was so enthusaiastic and so kind.  I couldn’t help but be so excited to help her with her business.

Sara is a mom of two little men and a pharmacist.  And the thing is, she loves her job and has no intention of quitting, but photography is what makes her heart happy.  She decided that if she really wanted to pursue a photography business she wanted to have all of her ducks in a row BEFORE she jumped in.  Which is so, so, so smart.  So many times new photographers will start their business before they understand what it really takes to run a successful and profitable business.  I love that Sara wants to fully educate herself and have everything set up before she takes the plunge into really starting her business.  She’s a smart lady.

After talking business we went out for our shoot.  We were lucky to have this super cute family come up from San Diego to model for us.  Mom is also a photographer!

Thanks so much for coming out, Sara!  I hope you had as much fun as I did!
