We love getting to learn about the photographers around the world who share Organic Bloom frames with their clients! Today, we're excited to share about Traci Baker, an Organic Bloom vendor who lives right here in Oklahoma. As fun as it is to send Organic Bloom frames around the world, it's just as fun to know they're loved in our home state.
Traci has had fun hosting social media scavenger hunts to spread the word about Organic Bloom and her photography business in her community. We hope you'll be inspired by what she has to say. Enjoy!
Tell us about yourself and your business.
Hello! I am a portrait photographer in Wagoner, Oklahoma. I began this journey in 2010 doing shoot and burn. Once I realized clients weren’t printing my images, I switched to the IPS (In Person Sales) model so I know that they are actually getting beautiful prints to hang on their walls instead of discs to stuffed in drawers. I also have the Elite 12 Experience which is a one-of-a-kind program that creates a memorable senior year for 12 seniors.
What's your favorite thing about your job?
I very rarely get bored with it. It is always changing and so exciting.
If you had to attribute your success as a photographer to one thing, what would it be?
To realize that people are sick and tired of the big box store and want custom service. Clients want to have more than cookie cutter pictures. They want an experience. I strive very hard to create an amazing experience for my clients.
What's the best piece of advice you can give to new photographers who are trying to grow their business?
Stop lurking on other photographer’s pages and do your own thing. Learn business, not just photography skills.
What is the proudest moment of your career to date?
Gosh, I don’t know that I have a proudest. I love working with people and giving them something that proves that they existed on this big beautiful earth and it will last far beyond their years here.
What is the coolest thing you've done for your clients using Organic Bloom frames?
Thanks for telling us about your business, Traci!
