Although I think reflecting more often than once a year is extremely important, a new year is certainly a good excuse to look back on accomplishments and challenges. So, here goes - a year end review for Hoppe Images. Take a look at the big moments for us!
Hoppe Images LLC is legit!
Paperwork is filed, website is launched, and your girl learns to swim in a very very deep pool that is small business operations.
Hoppe Images specializes in boudoir photography!
A natural niche for me - I have always been super passionate about empowering women and making people feel good about themselves. Having struggled with body image insecurities, depression, and anxiety, I felt very motivated to help other women going through the same things.
I partnered with Taylor Hamed, hair and makeup artist of J. Rhodes Salon & Spa, and Katie Nauta, Alba Nero Salon & Spa, to create a dream team that provides an all-inclusive boudoir experience. Pictures are great, but art is better. A photoshoot is cool, but an experience is unforgettable.
Hoppe Images expands!
The best part of having an in-home studios is I don't have to go anywhere and I can change the decor whenever I feel like it! So, in the fall of 2019, I called Mom and asked her to help me expand my studio from one room to two.
I want to be able to offer a good variety of setups to my clients. With a little help from Mom and a lot of paint, we were able to expand!
Hoppe Images educates!
2019 was a year full of education for me! In 2019, I dedicated more than 150 hours to learning how to better serve my clients. Completing an in-person workshop and many online classes focused on how to improve my work and build my business, this was money well spent! I got to spend lots of time learning from leading photographers - Brittany Bruce, Michael Sasser, Alex Loveland, Lindsay Adler, and Sal Cincotta.
It doesn't stop there - learning never stops. Which is why I've decided to share my knowledge and take on a few photography students myself! But, you'll have to hear about that in my 2020 year end review next January!
