I share the secrets to my success in building my child photography enterprise, including all the lessons I had to learn the hard way (so you don't have to). And I'm pretty hard-headed.
I offer you tips and strategies within the workbook to equip you to run your business with passion, with the end result being a business that produces profit and protects your time with family.
- You knew exactly what to say to magnetically attract your dream clients, and feel like you had full control over every session
- You had a precise roadmap of what exactly to do and how to do it, a detailed guide that walked you through exactly how to achieve photos you’ve only dreamed of and learn to set and keep boundaries with clients
- Kick imposter syndrome to the curb and fill your newsletter with clients who actually want to hear from you
I see you over there wearing all the hats, chasing after your littles, building your business while working your 9-5, and doing all the things. You’re working HARD. But, it’s time to stop clawing your way to success, actually take the photos you dream of creating, and turn that inbox full of crickets into clients.
Regardless of your season of life or where you’re at in your business journey, this workbook was created for you!
It all started in my first year of business when my heat was turned off in late October in NE Ohio when I was a single Mom where I learned, TALENT IS NOT ENOUGH. You have to know business. You have to know how to market. I was a right-brained person (read: creative not business-minded) -- how was I going to "sell my work?"
Not to mention, major self-worth issues that kept showing up by way of procrastination, self-sabotage, comparison, and the like. Seventeen years later, built a nationally-known name for my business, and here I am. And now, I want to teach YOU.
I've experienced ALL of the emotions that come with owning a service-based business. The lack of confidence. The hard lessons in learning why business policies are a must. Comparing myself to so-and-so photographer. Believe that my success as a photographer depends on how many other photographers are living in my geographic area (pssst, it doesn't).
Don't listen to the naysayers, those you tell you "there are a million other photographers out there to contend with" or even "the market is bad" ... you are unique, with your own vision, your own photographic voice. And I dare to believe there is a client (market) out there for everyone.
But, there is something that will set you apart, 100% of the time ... what?
I will show you in my Workbook. Now you can learn at home, at your own pace (in your yoga pants no less).

“This workbook has changed my business triple-fold. I was making about $4000 per month - working my butt off. Now I'm making between $9000 and $14000 per month and only working 3 days a week. Tulsa has hundreds of photographers (or people with cameras calling themselves photographers) so I had to set myself apart. I bought the workbook as my Christmas present and spent a week going thru it and implementing her system - I cannot recommend it enough. Skye ROCKS! Plus she has a great sense of humor!”

Skye Hardwick Edmonds is the emotive childhood photographer behind Work of Heart Photography™ (established in 2004) and the founder of Grow Girls Online Workshop Experience. She has taught 40+ photography workshops around the country since 2007 with Sweetlight Collective Workshops (now retired from in-person teaching).
