Products and Services
The primary revenue source for Rebekah Jean Studio will be photography services rendered by Rebekah Wavle. Rebekah Jean Studio will provide both in studio photography (portraits) and onsite photography for events such as weddings, corporate events, Bar/Bat Mitzvahs, sweet sixteen parties, and other major gatherings. The secondary stream of income will be derived from the sale of developed prints and framing services, which will be provided within Rebekah Jean Studio. In addition to photography services Rebekah Jean Studio will run a rental program to other artist for the use of one of the studio bays.
The service that Rebekah Jean Studio will be unique based off of the nature of photography rendered. RJS will offer out of the box thinking when designing a photo shoot. No two photo shoots will be alike. Therefore making Rebekah Jean Studio a desirable and sought after studio. Clientele will recognize that each photo shoot will be designed around the needs of the them. A key role to this is that the client will receive up to three consultations prior to their photo shoot. These consultations will include a detail storyboard of ideas on what they expect from the photographer. For example, if a client is into watching movies than a shoot will be designed around this concept. A local theater will be rented out and the shoot will conceptually display the client doing what they like best, watching movies. Costumes will be thought out along with a hair and makeup artist hired for the shoot. Every detail of the photo shoot will be classically laid out and planed. This will separate Rebekah Jean Studio from other local studios, and will draw in a particular clientele. This theatrical approach to photography can translate across the board to not only family portraits but also to themed weddings, senior portraits, and even to newborn photography. This type of service rendered create an intimate relationship with clients, and becomes more of an experience for the clientele. The client walks away from the shoot not just with photos, but with a part of them captured and preserved for a lifetime.
Objectively the life cycle of the service will be yearly or when special events occur in the clients life. For example a client hires Rebekah Jean Studio for senior portraits. Services are rendered. The client goes to college meets someone and gets married. The client then hires RJS for wedding. Several years later the client is pregnant and wants maternity photos, and hires RJS. Services are rendered. The baby is born and photography services are needed again. The life cycle of the services follows the life cycle of the client. The photo studio business relies heavily on referrals and repeat customers.
