5 mistakes small business owners make- Abby Grace Photography

We’ve all heard those scary numbers before on the mortality rates of small business start-ups; according to the Small Business Administration, there’s about a 50% success rate within the first 5 years, and only about 33% of all new business are still operating within the first 10 years. That’s real info, and to me? That’s scary. I don’t want to be one of those 50-67% of business owners who call it quits within the first 5-10 years, and I definitely don’t want you to fall into either one of those categories either!

So in an effort to make us ALL better business operators, let’s talk about a few mistakes almost every new small business owner makes!

5 mistakes small business owners make- Abby Grace Photography

Mistake #1: Trying to do EVERYTHING. You’re a photographer, so people ask you to photograph everything from their children to sporting events to corporate headshots. And pretty soon, you’re exhausted from it all, and because you’re a jack of all trades, you end up being a master of none of them. Rather than half-assing (sorry for the language) two things, I want you to whole-ass ONE thing. Start saying “no” to the jobs that don’t align with what you’re really passionate about! Say you’re a graphic designer, and you really really love corporate branding; maybe that means you need to think about saying “no thank you” to  baby shower invitations and stationery. At least THINK about it!

Mistake #2: Failing to charge appropriately. This is killer. You’re new, so you don’t want to scare people off with pricing, which means you end up working for too little. Which means you’re either not bringing home enough, or sometimes, you actually end up PAYING to work in the end. Either situation is bad news.

Do some research- what is your job COSTING you to do? How much time does each job take? Subtract your out-of-pocket costs from the price you’re quoting, and then take whatever money is left and divide it by the number of hours you’re working. Now, what’s your hourly rate? The first wedding I ever shot solo I ended up making an average of LESS than $10 an hour, once you factored in mileage, driving time, prep, shooting, editing, shipping, packaging, and wear + tear on equipment. It was ok at the time because I had a corporate 9-5 that was paying my bills, but if you’re trying to make a living off of a business that isn’t charging adequately, you’re going to burn out real fast.

Mistake #3: Forgetting to treat yourself like a professional. I’ve learned that I need to take myself seriously, or no one else will either. So what does that look like? It means knowing what your time is worth, and NOT offering work for free all the time because “it’s your mom’s hairdresser’s friend and you feel bad charging for them your craft.” Guys, that is not the way to run a profitable or even sustainable business! And profitability + sustainability are what we’re after, right? Right!

To be completely candid, there are only a few people I’ll offer to work with for free, and all of those people are folks who are close enough to me to have been in my wedding. That’s a rule I’ve occasionally broken when I want to, but I never ever ever break that rule for someone who expects me to shoot for free. Does that make sense? (To clarify, I do occasionally seek out opportunities to photograph people/things that inspire me, so I’m not including that kind of thing in the “free shoots” category).

In my experience, if someone approaches me expecting free or reduced-cost photography, to me, that says they’re probably thinking “I don’t really think you’re worth what you say you’re worth.” So I’ve learned that it is OKAY to quote my full rate to people I know personally, and if it doesn’t fit within their budget, to happily refer them to a newer photographer with lower rates. It’s so hard to do when you’re starting out, heck. It’s even hard to do when you’ve been in business for several years. But it’s the smart way to do business! Because in the end, what you’re running is a BUSINESS. And businesses exist to serve people, YOU being one of those people. If your business isn’t making any money, it’s not serving you or your family, which means you’re wasting a lot of time, energy, and resources.

Mistake #4: Failing to ask for help. Whether that’s in the form of friends, your spouse, mentoring, education, whatever, not asking for help when you need it is a surefire way to fail! Recognize your strengths AND your weaknesses- turn those strengths into selling points, and find someone to help you with those weaknesses.

For me, my main weaknesses are a) finance (keeping track of income/expenses), b) taxes (see item A), and c) organization of materials. Matt’s starting to come on to help me with A and a bit of B, we have a CPA to take care of the rest of B, and C? Well, we’re still working on that one. It’s one of those 27-years-in-the-making process.

Mistake #5: Letting your job take over your life. There are seasons in every business when you’ll be busier than others, but consistently allowing your work to consume every waking minute of your life is a really good way to burn relationships. Matt & I knew, when I was still doing double duty with AGP + my 9-5 corporate job, that things were going to be nuts for a while. When it got to a point that I was having meltdowns once or twice a week because I was so busy ALL THE TIME, that’s when we decided it was time to start moving toward me leaving my full-time corporate gig. And that was the right decision for us, because I spent the majority of our first 1.5 years of marriage with my face glued to a computer screen. It wasn’t good for my relationship with Matt, but we both knew it was what was necessary to get to a point where I could afford to leave the corporate world.

After I left Northrop Grumman, that balance got a LOT better. But if I’d never left, and I’d continued to allow myself to spend 80-100 hours a week working without an end in sight, my marriage would have suffered big time. My marriage, and relationships with friends + family, those are more important than a paycheck. So pay attention to how much time you’re spending working, and make sure you’re not consistently missing out on LIFE around you. Work to live, not live to work.

Happy Friday!

  • Laura Hernandez - All of these are SO true! Especially #5 for me right now.ReplyCancel

  • Sarah Anne Hayes - Love all of these! I especially have to remember the pricing one right now. It can be such an awkward topic and hard to turn down paying clients, but if you end up effectively paying the client to do your job, you’re right…it really isn’t worth it in the end.ReplyCancel

One thing that struck me about Natalie was how absolute calm she was in the weeks leading up to their wedding- no stress, no anxiety, she was just excited. It’s like that line from When Harry Met Sally; “when you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with somebody, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible.” They’re both just so sure, and the resulting excitement was palpable- their engagement session? Just a taste of how joyful they both were on their wedding day! Nothing could taint it- not a change in venue, not the weather, nothing. They were just so excited to be married!

Ryan, Natalie, you two are a dream together. The way you selflessly love one another, how you serve and want the best for each other, I have a feeling your marriage is going to be the kind that inspires your children and grandchildren to say “I want a love like theirs.” It was such an honor to have spent the day with you and your families, I’m so grateful for the both of you!

One thing that boggles my mind is how my brides spend hundreds, often thousands of dollars on their stunning wedding gown, only for the bridal salon to deliver on a plastic hanger. The same cheap, clear hangers you see polos and button-ups hanging on at a department store. It makes no sense to me! With every step of my couples’ experience with me, I try my best to make sure what I’m delivering isn’t cheapened or lessened by how I deliver it, so the whole plastic hanger thing just confuses me!

But that’s not what today’s post is about. Today I’m touching on a little change my brides do that makes my job a LOT easier on wedding mornings! And that change, my friends? It’s having a dress hanger with NOTCHES!

Tips for brides- finding a hanger for your wedding dress- Abby Grace Photography

I know it’s a small thing to write a blog post about, but it definitely makes a difference in photographs! When I show up on a wedding morning, the dress is often still in the garment bag from the bridal salon. And if my bride hasn’t ordered a specialty hanger for her dress, then her gown is usually still on the plastic hanger it came on. So I have two options: 1) Try to scrounge a hanger from the hotel/venue, which sometimes works and sometimes does, or 2) bring my own. I’ve taken to carrying an extra hanger in my car for this very sort of thing, but every once in a while, I forget to replace it and it gets left behind in the bridal suite.

Brides- this is where you come in! If you just make sure to have your MOH snag a nicer hanger from the coat closet before leaving home for the bridal suite, it’ll make a difference in the images of your dress! To be honest, plastic hangers are unattractive and distracting, and my job as the professional is to remove distraction! Hence the nice-hanger-move.

The reason you want to make sure to grab a hanger with notches is because those hanger loops that come attached to your dress? They slide RIGHT off a suit hanger, you know, the kind that don’t have notches. And I can jimmy rig it if I have to with fashion tape, but that’s time I have to spend doctoring a hanger instead of shooting, and puts me behind on the schedule. If your dress doesn’t require those hidden hanger loops to stay hung up, then no worries! But if your dress is strapless, or has a delicate lace top that requires extra support from those hanger loops, we’ll need those notches :).

Some of the specialty hangers, like this one below, don’t have notches built into them. But it’s a stunning hanger anyways, so to modify it, Cristina just added some grippy tape to it. You can’t even tell in the photographs!

And Natalie, who was married this past weekend, had the same hanger (I love my brides), and to make it useable she simply added some clear sticky drops (I have no idea what they’re actually called) to keep the dress on the hanger.

Also, God bless Vera Wang, queen of wedding frocks. Her gowns are delivered on elegant custom-branded pine hangers, and I love her for it!

Photographers- I definitely suggest adding a plain wooden hanger (with notches!) to your bag. I carry mine into the bridal suite with me in the front pocket of my ThinkTank, so it’s right there if I need it!

A couple resources for elegant custom hangers, if you’re in the market-

“I saw you’re going to Italy again- that’s so exciting! Is Matt coming with you?”

“Nope! It’s just me :).”

And then the inevitable head-cocked-to-the-side-in-slight-confusion moment. “But…why?”

It’s a comPLETELY reasonable question. Matt is my best friend, my favorite travel partner-why wouldn’t we go together? I think my own mother was confused the first time I traveled internationally by myself. You probably already know this about me, but I’m 100% an extrovert. I love people, I love crowds, I love big group hangouts, people people people! So why on earth would someone as extroverted as myself want to travel on their own?

Matt and I did London, Stamford, Surrey and Paris together in 2013, places we’d gone to mostly for me and my interests. I’d had a wedding in Surrey, an engagement in London, and I’d ALWAYS wanted to see Paris. So we went, and had an incredible time! Once we got home, I decided it was Matt’s turn to choose our next vacation- “Sky’s the limit, babe! Where do you want to go? Anywhere in the world, it’s your choice.” I’d been thinking he’d say Italy or Greece, since he’d always had a penchant for ancient Greek + Roman culture and history.

But no, this was his answer: “I think I’d really just like to go to the Outer Banks for a week.”

My world-exploring self’s mouth actually dropped open. Like, wait a sec- I’m telling you the world is your oyster, and you want to go to North Carolina?? I was actually upset with him- “why aren’t you dreaming bigger? Didn’t you hear me? I said ANYWHERE in the world!”

And then this became one of those teachable moments in our marriage- I learned that to Matt, in order for a vacation to be restful for him, it needs to be relaxing. Me, I love adventure! I love going new places, exploring new cultures, walking til I’m good and lost in those twisting, turning alleys in Aix-en-Provence. But Matt? Matt would be just as thrilled to rent a beach house for a week and hang out playing board games, reading a favorite book or watching a movie together on the couch at night. And while I still don’t really understand his indifference to world travel, I’m learning that it’s important for me to respect that about him, rather than pushing my dream travels on an unenthusiastic husband.

When I realized that my artistic soul needed to go back to Paris, I recognized that it might be a better idea for me to go by myself. Matt had fun in Paris, but it didn’t do the same thing for him that it did for me- Paris lit my soul on fire. So rather than use up his vacation time, pay for two plane tickets, train fares, and meals for two, it might just be a better idea for me to go by myself. So that’s exactly what I did!

And friends, it was one of the best things I’ve ever done as an artist. I was able to pick which countries I wanted to go to, explore where I wanted, get lost for hours at a time, stop for as many photographs as I wanted, take a simple dinner of an apple, a baguette and water at Montmartre without worrying it wouldn’t be sufficient for my travel partner. In essence, I could embrace the selfishness of whatever I wanted to do without needing to consult with anyone else. It gave way for more inspiration that I was prepared for, and I came home full to the brim.

  • Kelley - I think that’s so.freaking.awesome! Love it!ReplyCancel

  • Elizabeth - I have followed your blog for several years and I have to admit I have wondered why your hubby doesn’t go with you, dang I am jealous of your trips how can he not be?! Now it makes sense. I do love your adventures, and hopefully you get many more in the upcoming years.ReplyCancel

  • Daisy - You’re a gal after my own heart! My husband and I are the same way. I LOVE to travel alone. I love traveling with my husband too but I really enjoy just taking in all of the beauty however my heart leads in that moment. Well done lady!ReplyCancel

  • Laura Hernandez - I dream of going to ALL these places someday!ReplyCancel

  • Marie Schmidt - I’m fairly certain that we’re married to the same man! haha My husband would much rather spend a quiet night at home than be off exploring the world! If he does want to go on vacation it tends to be something outdoorsy and athletic, whereas I get my fix on culture and history and exploring cities and towns! There’s not a place in europe that I don’t want to go!

    I’ve never been brave enough to run off on my own, but your post makes me want to! Looking forward to meeting you at Creative at Heart this fall! <3ReplyCancel

  • Tina - More power to you, lady! I LOVE to travel and see new places but don’t know if I could ever do it alone. I dream of visiting all the places you visit one day and who knows – maybe I’ll get the bug and want to go back and back all over again, even without Jose! lol But it’s so awesome that you love it, do it and can enjoy your own schedule!ReplyCancel

  • Karen Field aka Mom - We’re the opposite. Your father likes to plan out a trip for us both and include special things I would enjoy, like this last trip to Europe. It was a delight to let him make all of the decisions about the mechanics of getting around and sleeping and then I usually got to pick the foods we’d eat. I count on his skills as a photographer but I told him the set up of many of the pictures I wanted and then he knows how to execute them. I love having him for a travel partner!ReplyCancel

  • Wedding Photographer in Cebu - I love your photos and same as you, I love to travel to. I wish to go to Paris in the future.ReplyCancel

  • Erin Schrad - I actually love traveling by myself… Especially as a photographer. Often when I want to photograph is when other people want to eat or something, so by myself I feel free to stop when I want to stop and linger in places and take all the photos I want without feeling like I’m holding someone else up. About the only person I can travel “alone” with is my mom because she accommodates me doing that… But even then it’s sometimes easier to be solo!ReplyCancel

  • Rebekah - Strikes me as very intriguing that I am a total introvert & yet I do NOT like to travel by myself, at least not anywhere more than about 5 hrs away or for more than 2 days. However, I do love going out to eat, shopping, & going to the movies by myself.ReplyCancel

  • Sydni - This is so good!! I love traveling on my own, and my husband prefers relaxing vacations too, whereas I prefer the more adventurous type. We are both introverts though – you don’t have to be extroverted to love adventurous trips and vacations!! I love doing my own thing and taking it all in :)ReplyCancel

You were probably expecting a Monday Mash-Up this morning, weren’t you? I’m really sorry about this, but we’re interrupting our regularly-scheduled program for something stunning :).

I can’t remember how I first stumbled on Richelle’s Instagram feed, but I’m so glad I did. See, she and her sweet husband Eric were chasing a dream they’d both been talking about for years- after their wedding, they picked up and moved to Paris, France for six months. Why? Because they’d always wanted to. As Richelle is a wedding photographer and Eric is a cinematographer + actor, they had the flexibility to be able to swing it. And if not now, then when? As if I didn’t already have a complete girlcrush on Richelle, those sentiments alone would have done it.

Too often we dream big, but then tell ourselves “one day, years from now, I’ll do that thing I really want to do.” And then we never get around to it, do we? That’s why I love Eric & Richelle- they just DID IT. They had a dream and they chased it, a crazy dream to live in the prettiest city on earth, to recklessly pursue adventure with the one they love most.

Eric, Richelle, I can’t thank you enough for such an incredible morning in my favorite place in the world. The fact that after so many years together, you still look at one another with the eyes of fresh love? It’s inspiring. They way you shamelessly flirt, it’s endearing. I can’t tell you how much I loved my morning with you both, and I’m crossing my fingers we’ll meet again! Hopefully in Paris. Or anywhere in France, really. I’m not picky.
