something else that bothers me. (Enough that I had to have a look again) You aren’t a wedding photographer, but yet you write articles like “5 questions to ask your wedding photographer” on a bride registry type blog, and use images in your article that you yourself haven’t taken. I find that very odd, and a little dishonest on your part.
That, and how you refer to your “boat load of experience” on your blog when you are, by your own admission, very new to family photography. It’s obvious when going through your port and seeing the same content over and over. It all seems very “fake it till you make it”, and so misleading to your potential clients/public. Classic faux move. I don’t know wether to laugh or grit my teeth, and I have a feeling I’m not the only one who has giggled a bit when visiting your site and Facebook.

Be proud of who you are and your accomplishments, and your goals, be honest with your readers, yourself, and to the people you solicit to. Write about what you know. I think people would be much more interested in a blog written by a girl who is trying her best to learn photography, shares her mistakes, and triumphs, or likes to share her daily adventures, or whatever floats your boat. People can generally see through fronts like this pretty easily. Dishonesty/falseness will always come back and bite you in the butt. Be you, not somebody/something you created in your head.
