We had the good fortune of connecting with Jaylynn Bird and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Jaylynn, why did you decide to pursue a creative path?
I pursued an artistic career because I have always been so creative. My mom was a photographer at one point in her life and allowed me to come to the sessions and help direct them. I feel like photography has been a part of my life forever. Ever since my nana purchase my first pink digital canon camera for me – I was pretty much sold! I love the wedding industry, and I love being a wedding photographer!
Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
I am a wedding + couples photographer – and I give QUITE the experience. We practice prompted posing in our world, allowing our couples to feel raw and authentic with each other – and their love being represented for exactly what it is! I am so excited to be offering travels this year with our photography business and giving all inclusive collections offered to those who are out of our area!
Of course this biz was NOT easy! But with LOTS of education, and investing in myself and in my knowledge – I have been so successful so far. My best advice? Don’t spend hours on social media TRYING to get leads – hire someone who knows what the heck they are doing and your investment in them will triple for your company!
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
It depends where we are visiting!
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I literally wouldn’t be where I am in my little empire without my husband. In 2017 when we got married, he convinced me that I should start my photography business! Fast forward to April of 2018, and he helped make my dream become a reality!
