When I started as a business 10 years ago, in-home photography was a genre very little photographers explored.
I honestly didn't know what to call what I did when I walked into a client's home and took a photo journalistic approach to capturing them as a family, versus a more directed approach in a location like parks and beaches. I did do a a handful of location shoots a month as well, but it was in-home that really made my heart skip when I went to review those images at download. Three years ago I made a move that some would consider business suicide: I dropped all 'location' shoots and went to a totally in-home documentary offering only.
Not only did it work- it rocked. Since then I have been coaching and encouraging students to make that leap- because when you shoot what you love, success and self-fulfillment comes.
Are you thinking of making the switch in your business? Or just starting to turn what you love to shoot into a business and want to know how to go about the in-home approach?
Are you scared to make the switch totally because of issues like indoor light, finding the story, and making your clients feel at ease?
From a business standpoint, are you looking for ways to market this type of session, price it and provide relevant products?
Then Coming Home is just what you need.
