Last fall, Matters Magazine celebrated women in the South Orange-Maplewood business community with a feature spread on “Women in Business.” These women represent a range of professions – from architecture and beauty to speech pathology and financial services. In all, 26 women-owned businesses are profiled. See the original Matters Magazine feature here.
Village Green has partnered with Matters Magazine to give these local women entrepreneurs a digital platform and is posting each profile individually on our website during the month of March — Women’s History Month. Today, we celebrate:
Jamie Meier, Live Love Lens Photography
Why I started my business
Photography is my second career after having been in social work for a number of years. I started my business in 2011 after my daughter was born when I was on the hunt for an intellectual and creative outlet. Positive feedback from friends and family and a request for a photo shoot led me to take photography classes. Soon after, Live Love Lens Photography was born!
Most valuable lesson learned
I feel strongly about going the extra mile in regards to customer service. Sending another thank you note, correcting every mistake and then making up for it, all to make my clients happy. They remember that and come back.
Favorite part of working locally
I feel ingrained in the SOMA community and truly enjoy seeing my clients all over town. It’s a special connection and I’m very fortunate to have such kind and down-to-earth clients.
