Inspiration & Design Photography wins Editor’s Choice Award 2016!
I was beyond surprised to open my inbox today & find out that I won the 2016 Editor’s Choice Award! The email said CONGRATULATIONS, pop the champagne! Since it’s still morning I will refrain from that, however, I may do a happy dance in my office 🙂
This is more than just winning an award, it’s about not giving up. It’s about trying new things. It’s about finding your way when you are feeling lost. For those of you who read my blog posts, you know that 2015 was the first year of submitting my work for publication. I had no idea what my efforts would bring, but I figured it didn’t hurt to try. And what a wonderful end to my first year of effort!
I was feeling like a guppy in a new area of the ocean filled with talented Beluga whales!! But in that large sea of talent, I knew that I needed to try to make a name for myself as a somewhat newbie to the Charlotte Market area. Since my business had ALWAYS grown via REFERRALS, it felt foreign to be in an area so saturated with talent and competing with many photographers who had been in the area for a long time gathering a ripple of referrals and vendor connections.
Entering my work has helped my google rankings, encouraged my little guppy heart and hopefully will help me swim with the Beluga whales once again!
