Pantry Organization Project

As stated in my prior blog post I was able to do lots of home improvement projects during quarantine, one of which is reorganizing my pantry. This is a project I’ve wanted to work on for a while now, but never seemed to get around to.

Two bloggers that I follow on Instagram, Chasing Denisse and Hayet Rida teamed up and formed #PantryAunties and this was all the motivation I needed to get my whole life together! If you weren’t able to catch me doing this in real time on Instagram then check out my YouTube video below that goes through the entire process from start to finish and lists out where everything was purchased. I also have an Amazon Storefront where you can conveniently shop my pantry items (or similar items). Happy organizing!

…And Then The Pandemic Hit

…And Then The Pandemic Hit

The start of 2020 kicked off what I knew would be a career changing year for DBP. January was my best month to date and I already had so many clients lined up through late winter/early spring (see all of their amazing photos throughout this post) that I knew 2020 was going to be a game changer. And then the pandemic hit…

Like most businesses things came to a complete halt around mid-March. I honestly wasn’t sure what to do. While I saw other photographers continue working by doing Front Porch Sessions, for my business I felt it was best to stay home since my work wasn’t deemed essential. I’m thankful I was able to continue working my full time insurance job to help make ends meet.

Taking 2.5 months off from photography wasn’t all bad though. It was the first time in a VERY long time that I truly didn’t have anything to do. Even though I take a dull 4 weeks off during the holidays I’m still busy on weekends visiting with family, Christmas parties and shopping. This was truly the first time in over 9 years that I had multiple weekends to myself…and I loved every minute of it. I got much needed rest, organized my pantry (stay tuned for an upcoming post about that), read lots of books & cooked! Being so busy with two jobs left me with very little time to make real home cooked meals or try out new baking recipes. I’m happy to say that while quarantined I’ve perfected my cornbread and pound cake recipes.

I’m finally back to shooting on a consistent basis and oh so happy to see my clients smiling faces again (and I still believe 2020 will be my best year yet!), but I’m thankful for the down time and what this pandemic has taught me. Always trying to find the silver lining when life throws curveballs my way and I hope that you are too!

The beginning of this year was filled with so many amazing brands!  And I even got a guy in front of my lens, which if you’ve been reading this blog for a while now you know happens few and far between.  I shot in some new locations, worked with old and new clients and helped my clients to create visuals for their brands that set them apart from their competition.

From my first day back at work in January until the very end of the month I had an amazing time working with so many passionate entrepreneurs.  Among them were photographers, a business coach, a web developer, orthodontist, health & wellness coach and an up and coming mommy blogger.  So much variety that things NEVER get boring over this way.  Thank you so much to each of them for trusting me to capture them in a real and authentic way, never compromising who they are or what they stand for.  And if it’s time for your brand to get a refresh with some new imagery then I’d love the chance to chat with you.  Email me today to see if I can help you bring your visuals to life in a new and unique way!

$100 Headshot Event | Charlotte, NC Photography

$100 Headshot Event | Charlotte, NC Photography 

 

I’ve been doing my $100 Headshot Event for a couple of years now and each year it gets bigger and BETTER!  This year I had a record number of 11 clients sign up for this event that took place over the course of January.  I met so many wonderful new clients and even had the chance to link back up with a former client.  This event allows brands and those just needing updated headshots the opportunity to receive quality images at a reduced rate and at a quick turnaround time.  It’s the perfect way to kickstart a new year!

My DBP VIP Newsletter subscribers are the first to get dibs on this annual event before it’s made public so if you’re not already signed up then I encourage you to do so…ASAP!  I’m already anticipating next year’s event and am excited for all of the wonderful clients I will have the opportunity to work with and I would love for YOU to be one of them!

Don’t think you can wait until January 2021 for some updated headshots for your business?  No worries because I shoot brands year round!  It’s actually my favorite type of session to capture and so I’ve created 4 packages to suit a wide variety of needs.  If you think we may be a good fit for one another then I’d love for you to reach out to me today! Let me know what you’re branding/headshot needs are and I’ll see if I can help.  I look forward to hearing from you soon!

Denise Benson Photography Sessions

Denise Benson Photography Sessions

 

Can you believe we’re officially on the final post to wrap up 2019 sessions?  And it only took 5 months into 2020 to get it done!  So the next blog post will finally feature fresh images from this year which will kickstart with my $100 Headshot Event that took place this past January.  But before I get ahead of myself I want to share some of the sessions that ended 2019 for me.

I was truly blessed to work with a couple of friends, a few people celebrating birthdays (or as I like to call them, life celebration sessions), an amazing BOSS branding session that brought me and my team together and as always lots and lots and lots of other beautiful brands!  2019 was a year filled with a little bit of everything and I loved every single minute of it!  Take a look to see how I rounded out the final few moths of the year and if you’re ready to get in front of my camera in 2020 (or beyond) then I’d love the opportunity to chat with you to see if I can help you bring your vision to life.  I’m currently booking for the second half of 2020 and would love to get you in front of my lens.  Email me today to see if we can make it happen and get you on my books!
