ShutterBaby Baby and Child Photography - One year old today!!

01st March 2013
A year ago today I left my career as an accountant to pursue my dream of becoming a newborn, baby and child photographer. I didn't know what the future would hold or whether I would be able to make it in such a competitive business. I was passionate about photography and had been taking photos as an amateur for years but I knew nothing about editing, website design, SEO, marketing or generally running my own business. How was I going to get clients? Would I be able to pay my bills? Could I really leave the corporate world forever?

With a lot of research (google became my best friend!), help from some amazing people I met along the way and many many many hours of hard work I made it through the first year. I am so immensely proud of myself for how far I have come, and how much I have learnt. The day I googled "baby photography south london" and came up as the first name I jumped around for joy. I am happy to say that I have a steady stream of clients and am absolutely loving my change of career (despite the crazy hours!). It is so amazing to be my own boss, but more than anything to create something which makes people smile. Do I ever want to go back to accounting? No thanks.
