I took my boys down the biggest park we have in our town this afternoon they have an event on every year where stalls set up selling crafts, body shop, raffles, cakes etc. Well my friend V is a photographer and she had a stall there today selling prints and advertising her business. She was on her own so we stopped with she for 10 mins grabbed some business cards and her leaflets and off we went to hand them out and let the kids play. I found myself really getting into it and approaching people with her leaflets and cards and telling people all about her amazing work. I seemed so confident and felt confident doing it.
It probably sounds so daft but it felt amazing I was helping a friend for no benefit of my own just because I wanted to and I enjoyed it. I hope that she gets some bookings out of it. We got talking and I suddenly thought to myself I’m never going to have another baby so I couldn’t book her for a maternity shoot or baby shoot. She said I could be her assistant when she has newborn shoots and I thought that would be brilliant.
After chatting more she said how she loves the photography side but not running the business side so I kind of offered to be her PA. I will help her with her facebook page, check out if there any local events she can attend and help her with her schedule and bookings. It got my creative flow going giving me a brilliant distraction from shit going on in my head. I really hope something good comes out of it and I can really help her she’s a fab friend and she’s a brilliant photographer. So I’m keeping my fingers crossed. 📷📸💷🖼📅📆
