We had the good fortune of connecting with Emily and Luis Robertson and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Emily and Luis, what habits do you feel helped you succeed?
The habit of being disciplined. All success boils down to that one word, discipline. We had the motivation but that only took us so far as to what kept us going. It was the discipline to do what we knew needed to get done even when we weren’t motivated to do so that we owe our success to.
Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
We are very proud owners of a beautiful, small, and most importantly, affordable photography studio in the Clayton County area. As entrepreneurs, we have always struggled to find affordable studios for our other businesses and decided, why not be the ones to provide that service to others.
In our studio, we have 3 rooms that one can either rent out (photographers) for their own clients or an individual can rent out and book one of our in house photographers for any type of shoot you can think of. We offer all lighting equipment included with the booking as well as props.
“Was it easy?” No, nothing in life that is worth it comes easy. Easy would have been to let someone else open up an affordable studio but that’s not how life works is it? Sometimes in life when you want something, you have to go out there and make it happen. There were and still are to this day a lot of challenges that come up but we are grateful that we get to do those things. We are grateful that we get to wake up and deal with those challenges. Everyone has a struggle in life, it’s just a matter of what kind of struggle are you going to have.
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
Monday through Friday would be food exploration week. We are fans of trying new things and discovering new places. Even if the food isn’t all that great, it would be the experience that makes everything worth it. Saturday and Sunday, a walk around the city, maybe visit the usual tourist areas such as the Aquarium, maybe the Coca-Cola factory. Maybe. Mostly discovering new food, deserts, wines, etc.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
Shoutout would have to be given towards our familys’ and our own personal struggles growing up. Seeing the financial difficulties that our parents and other family members had to endure gave us the determination to break that financial curse and become the ones who introduce a new way of living to those who proceed us.
