64: *Student Success* How She Turned a Christmas Gift Into a Full Time Career With Claudia Segui
Listen now
I’m baaaaaackkkk (with two new best friends) ... You heard that right, The Photographer’s Podcast is BACK!  But before we get into it, I want to thank you for being here, for allowing me this season of rest as I adjust to this new mom life. I’d be lying if I said I was actually adjusted by now. This is a process that’s gonna take time, and I’m enjoying the freedom and flexibility I have as a photographer to take it all in without having to rush back into work. So, thank you. Being a photographer who’s in control of their own schedule, flexibility and freedom, is truly a gift. And I don’t take that lightly. I wanted to properly kick things off by welcoming TPP alumni Claudia Segui to the podcast! Claudia is an incredible wedding photographer originally from Cuba who’s currently living in South Florida. She is a mom of two, a wife, an inspiring artist and a hilarious, welcoming and talented photographer. Claudia never imagined she would become a photographer. She spent most days in the courtroom working as a stenographer. But when she found herself going through a tough time, feeling stressed out about her day job, her husband suggested photography as a release. After receiving a camera as a christmas gift, she was hooked, until she tried to use it… “I thought the camera was broken, I was like… it has to be, I can’t be that bad.” Then Claudia joined The Photographer’s Path… and everything changed. Today, she’s sharing exactly how much that Christmas gift changed her life. Claudia is a perfect example of what happens when you follow your inspiration. In this episode, she talks about: ➡️ How she booked her first wedding of 2024 in Hawaii ➡️ What she does to stand out as a photographer ➡️ How she breaks the ice with new clients to ensure a smooth wedding day ➡️ What she did to find her niche and style ➡️ Advice for aspiring photographers, and so much more...
