Have you ever scrolled through Pinterest, clicked through to someone’s website, and thought…

“Wait a minute. Why don’t I ever get clients from searches like this??”

Have you ever scrolled through Pinterest, clicked through to someone’s website, and thought…
“Wait a minute. Why don’t I ever get clients from searches like this??”

In a social-media-dominated world, it can be easy for photographers to fall into the trap of thinking tools like Instagram™ are the ONLY way to attract and connect with potential clients. The problem?

I’m not saying you should abandon ship on the ‘Gram. It’s a valuable tool. 

To feel more confident sharing your own ideas, instead of constantly comparing yourself to others?

To create an evergreen strategy for finding clients + boosting your visibility in your market, using a content creation method that’s worked for decades and is STILL going strong?

Good news: There is. Keep reading and I’ll explain exactly how it works… 👇🏻👇🏻

Create content that positions you as the go-to photographer in your niche?

Effortlessly attract dream clients, without having to post 42 dancing reels every week?

Attracting your dream clients and working on projects that light you up.

Confidently raise your rates without feeling like an imposter or increasing your workload?

Start feeling like the BRAVE badass you are & embody true confidence in yourself and your abilities?

You’re ready to step up & be taken seriously as a photographer and creator. Step one is owning your expertise.

The answer to alllll of those—is blogging.

Because to be clear—you ARE an expert. 

You’ve been at this photography thing for at least a year or two now. (Maybe even longer!) From snapping sweet moments to seeing your clients’ faces when you reveal their photos, you LOVE your photography business and can’t wait to keep building it.

So how do you…

Yes! And no.

Blogging, like the tool photographers (myself included) have been using to fuel their businesses for actual decades.

Blogging, like the content strategy that never goes out of style, no matter what “updates” the Social Media Powers That Be throw at us.

Blogging, like the smartest and simplest way to generate free traffic for your photography website.

THAT kind of blogging.

And before you get all, “But I don’t understand the tech behind blogging!” or “But isn’t it too late to start a new blog??,” let me just share some quick numbers with you. As of 2022…

Um… hold on. Blogging? Like, 2002 blogging?

 quick numbers  as of 2023…

Businesses who blog get 97% more links to their websites. (OptIn Monster)

73% of marketers successfully use content marketing to nurture leads…

97% more

77%

64%

777% of internet users still read blogs (Social Media Today)

…while 64% of marketers use it to generate sales and revenue. (Content Marketing Institute)

73%

…In other words?? If you’re not blogging for your photography business, you’re sleeping on a golden opportunity to get noticed, build your confidence, attract more clients, and grow the business you want—without having to hustle for clients month after month. 

Because between taking care of your family, working with clients, and trying to have a life—time is a hot commodity. You don’t have hours a week to spend figuring out how to..

>> Navigate the “techy stuff” of creating a blog

>> Write articles people actually want to read

>> Trial-and-error your way into turning casual readers into paying customers


Ok… so how do you actually start a blog, in a way that doesn’t feel like a total waste of time?

…And yet—if you COULD get past the overwhelm and build a blog that works for you, you could finally:

💕 Feel like a legit photographer—someone who knows what she’s doing and provides amazing photos your clients truly l-o-v-e

💕 Raise your rates to reflect the real value of your work. No more second guessing yourself or undercharging!

💕 Stand out in your market and stop worrying about where your next project is coming from.

💕 Build the business you want to build. Whether that means mini shoots here and there when you feel like it, a multi-six-figure luxury wedding biz, or anything in between—content marketing puts YOU in control.

[Alright, I’m convinced! Show me how.]

I’m a North Dakota wedding photographer, course creator, and host of the Next Brave Step podcast. When I started my business, I’d just had my first baby and dropped out of college… and despite having taken a handful of business classes, I felt preeeettty unprepared for the whole entrepreneurship thing.

Still, I was committed to building the most efficient and agile photography business possible. I didn’t want to waste time on trendy marketing tactics that moved me forward an inch at a time.

I wanted a proven, scalable method for attracting brides and keeping my calendar full, season after season.

**cue my best Elyse Myers impression** Great question, I would love to tell you.

That’s how I found blogging. Long story short, I realized I could marry my business skills, my writing skills, and my photography skills to catapult my business forward at the speed of light.

Not long after I started blogging...

…AND EVEN IN THE FACE OF ALL THESE CHANGES, MY BUSINESS IS THRIVING. THERE’S NO HUSTLING. THERE’S NO ANXIETY ABOUT HOW TO FIND CLIENTS. I STAY BOOKED OUT AND EARN PASSIVE INCOME FROM RESOURCES I CREATE FOR OTHER PHOTOGRAPHERS.

BLOGGING MAKES IT ALL POSSIBLE.

... I’d made a name for myself as one of my area’s most in-demand wedding photographers.

👉🏻 I was getting discovered on Pinterest.

👉🏻 Couples were Googling wedding photographers and landed on my website.

👉🏻 My blog was helping me find clients while I slept—or, ya know, took care of my kids and shot weddings. :)

Then, disaster struck. My ex-husband found himself at the center of several cardiac emergencies and heart surgeries. This could have put an end to my photography business then and there—but instead, I started creating courses and templates for photographers.

And how did I sell them?? You guessed it. With my blog.

Today, a lot has changed about my life, my business, and the online marketing world. I’m divorced now. Social media becomes even more saturated every day.

If you’re ready to get a simple, scalable, repeatable marketing strategy that sets you up for long-term photography success, I’m here to show you exactly how it’s done, one brave step at a time. Let’s do this!

Q: Does blogging still work in 2023?

YESSS! For those who will create content consistently and commit to the long game, blogging is a business game changer. My blog has been my key to staying booked out + selling digital products with ease through MANY different seasons of life. If you’re willing to do the work, blogging will work for you!

Q: How long will it take to see results from blogging?

From the day you publish your blog, you’ll experience a boost in confidence and credibility. After about 3-6 months of publishing content consistently, your content will start consistently attracting leads into your business—and THAT’S when you start seeing results you can take to the bank. Bloggin is a long game, but once that momentum kicks in around the 6-month mark, your success will snowball.

Nope! This course is designed to give you a simple, self-paced path to blogging. IF you’re looking for more comprehensive photography business mentorship or private coaching, you can learn more about that over here.
