As we get closer to the end of the year, I thought it might be fun to recap your top 5 episodes of the Business Journey Podcast! It’s been a great year and I’m still blown away by all of the support for the podcast! So, thank you for that. I can’t believe we’ve been doing this for almost a year and providing you with more educational content through our podcast than ever before. And if you’re in the market for an educational photography podcast, this is for you! Let’s jump in!
Kristina is a member of our team – our content writer. When she took over our blogging, it was a huge sigh of relief because we knew everything would be optimized, well-written, and we’d be sharing our content and beautiful photos easily. In Episode 34, she walked us through what family photographers should be doing when they blog. It’s a super practical episode for all of you photographers!
This was a super fun episode! Both Natasha and Stephanie are just amazing humans but they’re also great at short form videos like Instagram Reels and Tik Toks. Their episode helped so many of us break down some of the mental barriers we have around Instagram Reels. They had great tips and tricks, especially about batching Reels and it made everything feel reasonable. This is definitely a must-listen if you’re struggling with short form video!
I LOVE that you all loved Episode 20 because I think it can be a real concern for so many photographers. Mini sessions are my jam and so I loved breaking down so many strategies on the podcast all year long. But, when I first started doing minis I had almost no client base, so I walk you through my strategies to book out your mini sessions, even if you’ve got no clients currently. As we get ready for a new year, it’s worth a listen. I hope it encourages you to give those sessions a shot this year!
I’m so happy that one of my earliest podcasts became one of the most popular ones! Episode 2 was a super fun one to record, too. We put it out right before spring mini sessions hit and we were able to help so many photographers get ahead of the curve. We broke down a few easy things to do to make your mini sessions in the spring a success. And honestly, you can use the tips any time of year, so go take a listen to that photography podcast!
And now, drumroll please….
I LOVE that family posing was the topic you all loved most of all this year on the podcast! I know that posing can be a tricky thing for family photographers and I’ve always wished there were more resources for photographers on it. A side note – we started a YouTube channel this year and I’ve done some videos on this topic, too! Anyway – I’m glad to know you love all things posing and this episode is a great start!
If you missed any of these episodes, I hope you have the chance to listen to them! Thanks for making 2021 such a great year. I’m so happy that I’ve had the chance to get to know so many of you and work with you all! And if you know a friend who could benefit from listening to an educational photography podcast as well, share this blog with them too! We are all about community over competition here!
