WARNING: A little bit of rambling happening in this post!
Okay, so I am curious.... how and why do you choose to follow or read a particular blog? And more specifically, why do you visit the 'Toki Lee Photography' blog?! I'm asking this because I recently came across a great article related to photographers who blog and the reasons for blogging. Perhaps the main reason for me to have a blog should be "to market my business and attract new clients." But that's not a natural thing for me to do... market myself, that is. What DOES feel natural is to share with everyone how much I love photographing people and creating artwork out of my images. I love the privilege of doing something important like documenting your loved ones for posterity's sake. I love it that you have one or more portraits that we created, displayed proudly in your home. I love having a business that allows me to share my talent. So when I blog, I want to share with you what I do, who I am and in doing so, naturally attract new clients. Clients who become my friends!! Clients who love my work and trust me enough to hire me to photograph their family. Clients who are excited about 'Toki Lee Photography' and want to tell everyone about me!!
You see, the core of my photography business has been built up almost completely by word of mouth... and I wouldn't have it any other way!! So in conclusion [of this somewhat random post], I would like to ask you... anyone who is reading this... will you share with me why you visit my blog, how often you visit, and if you ever share my blog with others? Also, tell me what you enjoy most about my blog and what you would like to see more (or less) of. Oh wait! I know the answer to that part... you want to see less of my boys since every other post has a photo of them in it - ha ha! Anyways, you can leave me a comment or if you prefer some privacy, just email me directly at email@example.com. I appreciate each and every one of you!!!
And now... I leave you with an image of someone other than my boys ;-) A darling little client that I have photographed 3 times now. This is one of my favorite images from our very first session together. She means business!!
