Episode 8: Kristen Tourtillotte on Treating Clients Like Gold

Kristen Tourtillotte

Kristen Tourtillotte’s great aunt was a photographer in Alaska, and her influence was around her from a young age. While studying to be a nurse in college, Kristen took a few photography classes, and eventually she leapt full on into wedding photography (with a transition that included simultaneously going to school for nursing, nannying and fostering the photography business).

A few notes from today’s show:

  • Treat your clients like gold—go the extra mile with your service, and it will pay off through positive reviews and referrals
  • Prioritize what is important to you, including time for your own well being
  • Give yourself business hours
  • Allow yourself to say no
  • Reward yourself for accomplishing big tasks
  • And the fun bit—hear what Kristen wears to shoot weddings (sorry guys, this one leans a little more toward women’s fashion)
