Heather’s Aha Moment: While at a conference, Heather heard someone tell her that she can’t do it all. She needed to delegate what didn’t require her in the business to someone else.

Technique for Free Time: Being intentional is key for having free time from work.

Heather’s Work: She doesn’t want to stick to one genre or niche of photography, because she feels challenged with photographing something different or new on occasion.

Creating Timeless Images: Keeping classic edits that don’t take on trends or fads will help keep images timeless for your client’s families to enjoy long after their gone.

Heather’s Post-Production Process:
1. Load photos into computer.
2. Send to Photographer’s Edit to cull and edit.

4. Clients will favorite the images they want added to their album, then Heather creates a spread in Pic Arts of those images for proofing.
5. After final proofing, Heather uploads to Red Tree Albums, and ships directly to the client.
