Alice Ahn, photographer
If I had a guess (and I'm a pretty good guesser), I'd guess you don't take pictures because you thought getting into the highly competitive photography industry was a good business idea. I'd guess you actually fell in love with the way you felt behind the lens. I'd guess you fell in love with the stories you were witnessing in front of the lens, and I'd even guess you fell in love with the way you told those stories. And you put yourself out there as "a photographer" and "an artist," and you tried to fit YOUR business into an industry with all the other photographers and artists and clients who inspired you — and you lost track of where your love story even figured in.
I've been there. I AM there. And I have never felt more strongly that there is a place for every single one of us — not just in our industry, but our business too. I know from experience that when our clients really see who WE are, they cannot get enough.
When you're doing YOU, you stand out.
There is a fire in you that your people cannot resist. They may not be able to tell you what it is on a feedback form, but they know it when they see it. And so do I.
It hasn't ever been about the hustle, or just getting things done. You're in it for the sheer love of being in it -- the highs and the lows, the adventure and the memories, the laughter (and even the tears. You're not here because anybody said you should be here. You're here because you just couldn't resist.
Understand your "why," define your voice, and identify what connects you and your people.
Set your values, share your unique voice, and create your own world for your clients.
Set your own aesthetic, stand out from your competition, and speak your own language.
think about it
We start where you started, with what you love and why you love it. We'll explore your reality and your inspiration and where the two are already coming together in your work, as well as where YOUR unique voice is already stronger than you might know.
If you've got this far, you've already been doing exactly what you want to be doing (and it didn't feel like work because you love it!). With targeted action steps and a creative approach to dream opportunities, we'll strengthen your voice (and your portfolio) so that you love the results of what you do.
It's so dang hot
YOU already stand out to your people. YOU are already what they are looking for. And the way you show up in your business is what gets you connected with them. We will strategize the way you express your brand (images, copy, and voice) so that YOU can walk confidently into this love story you started in the first place and fall in love all over again.

You know it in your soul, the way your whole body lights up when you get to spend a whole day doing exactly what you love. The way that living your dreams was really about being alive. You know deep down there's no competition between what you love and what you should be doing. You know that productivity and overhead and "what everybody else is doing" don't begin to describe the reasons you started this whole thing in the first place.
WHAT IF YOU COULD JUST BE IN LOVE AGAIN?
