Happy 3 Year Business Anniversary
+ Win a Free Photo Shoot!

I can’t believe it’s been 3 years!

It’s crazy to think that this time 3 years ago I was sitting in front of my computer and registering my business and making the first steps in starting my professional photography journey, something I thought wouldn’t happen until much later in life. So it’s exciting just saying it out loud that Nisha Haq Photography has been in business for 3 years!

I remember in the first few months it was nerve-wracking to even say I was a professional photographer let alone to class myself as an entrepreneur or that I was a business owner. Even doing my first Facebook advert felt alien to me and putting my business ‘out there’ was a daunting concept. Fast forward 3 years, it’s been a pretty incredible ride in getting here today and certainly lots of amazing experiences along the way!

On this day last year...

I was pulling a gobsmacked expression in front of a large audience when comedian Ellie Taylor called my name to be crowned IPSE UK Young Freelancer of the Year. Certainly a day I won’t forget! This was the extra push I needed to take the plunge into being a full-time freelancer a month later and what a journey it’s been!

I know a lot of businesses have corporate goals they target such as a certain annual turnover or profit they want to make in a certain period or hitting a certain amount of followers to they want to reach. Don’t get me wrong, all these things are important in the day-to-day in running a business, but what I’m most proud of in what I’ve achieved in the last 3 years can’t be measured in numbers, it’s knowing my confidence in both myself as a woman and a business owner has grown so much, it’s definitely not something I would have foreseen.

It’s the confidence

The confidence in believing in myself and knowing that going full-time with my business is the best thing for me.

The confidence in trusting my gut with decisions and growing my business.

The full confidence to introduce myself as a professional photographer / entrepreneur and badass businesswoman (I might bleep the badass out if saying aloud!).

3 goals

I’m also proud of the fact that I’m already on the right path to accomplish the goals I set at the beginning of the year which is a first for me. Every New Year's resolution gets recycled and never usually gets achieved… well, 2018 isn’t going to be that year! My 3 personals goals this year is:

  • Moving in with my partner of 6 1/2 years and getting our own place together, plus a much bigger (and snazzier) office and a portable home studio! (Which I've ticked off this whopper in March!)
  • Adopting a healthier lifestyle and actually sticking to it (started in April and I’ve lost half a stone and on my way to losing a full stone soon!)
  • Launching my new Fearless Females portrait and Q&A series and writing more inspirational blog posts and telling women's stories (I launched on International Women's Day, 8 March! The next fearless female will be published very soon - watch this space!
