We can all get so official on our websites, social media. Putting out content that we “think” must be put out there, and we most definitely are right most of the times. Because we think about what content will help our clients with their desires, needs, problems.
But when did we forget to have fun and just be ourselves, without overcomplicating things?
So, that’s why I thought I’d come up with an article that’s just filled with fun facts about me, Yvonne, the face behind Photographers Coach. Maybe you would like to get to know me better?
I am ashamed of you. And I’m angry. Let me tell you why.
My name is Yvonne van Dalen and I’m a newborn and family photographer from the Netherlands. I have currently closed my studio due to the measures around the Corona Virus. Things have been a bit surrealistic here, as it has been absolutely quiet for the first time in my career. Shoots have been postponed, meetings are held online and every inquiry has been put on a waiting list. This feels like something out of a movie. But it’s reality.

In this online masterclass you will focus on your time and your life as a woman in business. In addition to your professional knowledge and passion, you need more to make your business a success. Your own definition of success of course. It’s about mindset, becoming the boss you need.
A client of mine said to me last week: Oh my gosh, I’m so glad you’re not perfect! Well, sure. Why would I be?
Are you perfect? I’m not! Thank God! Being perfect or striving to best sounds really exhausting and so surreal.
I have learned a long time ago to embrace my imperfections and just go ahead living.
Just this week I had a rather imperfect moment at the gym when my personal trainer made me do rope skipping. Know what happened?

Let me introduce you to my friend and coaching client Lieselot. Lieselot is the creative brain and mastermind behind her fine-art photography business LOT Photography.
Her business is doing AMAZING, and Lieselot was on the right track, but only really got things moving upwards when she started with the online coaching program Studio Sessions.
I thought I’d show you a real-life example of someone who’s going through the program. And what it has meant for them so far. So I interviewed Lieselot on her experience with Studio Sessions.
