Post 10: The best part of my job
Over the past couple of years, I've had plenty of time to determine the pros and cons of being a business owner. Being able to create my own schedule, keeping 100% of the profits, getting paid for something I love, and being my own boss are all great benefits. To many, these pros probably sound great, and they are, but there's one thing that easily trumps them all; the reaction I get from my clients and their families and friends.
When I first started taking photos professionally, I thought that getting paid for doing something I love or being able to work whenever I wanted would be the best part. It didn't take long for me to realize that the greatest satisfaction comes from the overwhelmingly positive reactions I receive once the client and their friends and family see the photos, though. A strong, positive reaction has become my main focus when I work with a client over the years, because I feel that it ultimately means I did a good job and delivered a great product. If I didn't have boring things to pay for, like bills, I'm almost sure I would take photos for people solely to see them happy with the final result.
I used to tell people my favorite part of my job was "capturing that special moment," and although that's incredibly important to photography, I think a happy client is even more important and rewarding.
