DBP Officially Has A Studio Space!

Denise Benson Photography Studio Space from Denise Benson on Vimeo.

Sometimes the very thing you said you never wanted is exactly what you need…
If you would’ve told me 9 years ago when I began my photography career that I’d be in the space that I’m in right now (both mentally + physically) I never would’ve believed you. But I’ve learned over the years that desires are put on your heart for a reason + if it’s something truly meant for you a way will be made.
In 2019 I began to have a vision of myself working in a studio space. Prior to that I always saw myself working on location in God’s natural light so I didn’t understand why I suddenly had this desire. So over the next few months I prayed + had many talks with God to make sure this was the right move for me. If you know me, then you know I don’t leap into things without having ALL of my ducks in a row. His answer to me was…it’s time.
I found an amazing space in NoDa Charlotte with lots of beautiful natural light (I can never steer too far from what I know + love most) + I’m excited to share with my branding clientele that Denise Benson Photography is now a member of a local Charlotte studio! I will be offering studio branding sessions at no additional cost. I’m so excited for this new chapter + can’t wait to capture all of your amazing brand stories here!

Pantry Organization Project

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!
