In this blog, I wanted to talk about how important it is to be supportive of other local business and working with a local competitor and not against them. I have been working as a specialists newborn photographer for over 5 years in Leicester and Leicestershire.
Being self-employed means that you are the person that does the admin, the accounts, the marketing, the social media maintenance and the photography sessions. It’s a very busy working day but it can also be lonely. Not having the support of work colleagues, or being able to have a natter over lunch about the workload.
However, I was lucky enough to meet another local photographer that also photographs newborns and families, I must say that her work is gorgeous. Bea from www.bumpsbabybeyond.co.uk is also a photographer based in Leicester. We became friends by sharing a bag of chocolate while working on figuring out a new editing program.
Our friendship had grown over the years and we support each other in all aspects of business, a few months ago we got to photograph twins together! How amazing is that!
