Photography tips

Three little words. Why do they feel so impossible to achieve?!

WORK LIFE BALANCE.

Sometimes I think work life balance is kind of like a unicorn. It just doesn’t exist. (But if my 5 year old niece asks, they totally do ok?)
As a Boulder newborn photographer, my days are filled photographing sweet little babes in my photography studio. But there’s sooooo much more to being a photographer. So many hats to wear. So many people to manage. Moving parts galore.

But that’s life, right?

Our days are a flurry of lunch boxes, meal prep, grocery shops, mountains of laundry, dishes, dog walks, school pickups and drop-offs, diaper changes, bubble baths, and bedtimes. And those are just my days home with the kids. Add in running a photography business, and boom … here comes the stress.

Finding the balance is the hard part.

The best thing I’ve done for my business and my family is getting (and staying) organized. I’m pretty type A, so really it was a no brainer. But finding the right software to organize my photography business was key. And once I did, the decision was NOT hard.

Enter HoneyBook

HoneyBook is the most incredible thing I’ve done for my business this year. HoneyBook is an online client management system that streamlines and automates your client’s experience from inquiry to final invoice. My clients move through the online workflow and I even get automated reminders and notifications to stay on track. My pipeline visualizes where I am with each of my clients and what I need to work on, all in one place. 

Conquer the Chaos

And they make it super easy to get setup. I signed up and within one day I was completely up and running and back on track. HoneyBook setup all of my contracts, email templates, workflow, etc. They’ll even import your current client list so there’s zero downtime. The transition was a piece of cake. And … I LOVE their interface. There’s even an app for my iPhone so I can respond to clients so much faster than before!!

Book Fast. Get Paid Faster.

I don’t know about you, but I love knowing what’s happening behind the scenes. I hate wondering if an email went through, or a client had a chance to review a contract I sent. With HoneyBook, I get a notification on my phone when I client reviews, signs and even pays online. Cha-ching!! Actually, the app makes a little cash register sound when you’ve been paid. It really doesn’t get much better than that. Simply put, I’m in love. 

Wanna take HoneyBook for a test drive (for 1/2 price?!)

Sweet, I was hoping you’d say yes. If you run a photography business and you’re ready to take back your life, I dare you to try them out. You will not regret it, promise. PLUS, you can use my HoneyBook affiliate link and save yourself 50%! Whaaaaaaat?! I know, right! They’re so amazing they gave me a few 50% off codes for my friends (that’s you silly). I hope you love them as much as I do. But I’m pretty sure you will. 🙂
