Small Business Tips: When to Outsource Photography

Taking photos for give with joy's website and wholesale catalog was stressing me out. 

I spent hours, days, weeks...taking and editing photos just to retake them because lighting was inconsistent or I just overdid it with useless props. They failed to tell the story and to show the quality of my work. 

Quality photos are crucial for businesses. When you have a functional website with great photos, then people tend to take your business more seriously. I know I don't really shop online with a retailer that has poor photos. 

As small business owners, we need to know when to outsource some of the work we need done. It may seem like a big financial investment but there are some worth making. We waste more time trying to do it all ourselves.

Rachael from Haven Life and Photo is filled to the brim with talent. She took on my photo overhaul. She even did all the styling for my website banners and images for the catalog. 

I finally feel completely satisfied with the way the photos on my website look

This is what it use to look like:

And this is what it looks like when you have a professional take over. It's consistent throughout the page. The lighting is far better than the ones I took above.
