Be Expensive

I recently started up a photography business and announced on social media that I'm taking clients. Several friends reached out to me for bookings, but they insist that I should shoot at a discount, or free. How do I gently tell them that the best way to support my business is by paying full price?
Class solidarity means paying your friends fairly! But sometimes, our buds would prefer a little special treatment, even if we can't reasonably give it to them. This week, we'll go over what to say when your friends demand a discount, what to go over in an Informational Email, and when you might want to perhaps consider maybe possibly updating your prices perchance.

This is the penultimate episode of Friendshipping! Next week will be our last new episode. Please continue sending your questions to, or head to the Get In Touch tab at the top of We'll be transitioning to a newsletter shortly, and we'll answer your questions there. Details soon to come!
