Meet Jamie OGorman
We’d love for you to meet your not-so-average mom. Jamie OGorman founded and created the GingerSnap PhotoCamper to bring you life lasting memories at any event.
Briefly share how you became a freelancer.
Hello. My name is Jamie and I am so happy to share with you our business and how we became Houston’s most unique photo booth experience. I am the owner of GingerSnap PhotoCamper. My love of designing, and redesigning, combined with creativity, unique perspective and my husband’s handiwork we set out to create a statement experience for Houston and surrounding areas. We wanted to spread joy, happiness and laughter will capturing memories to be cherished for a lifetime to come. So, on a whim, hunch and support from a best friend and family, we took a leap and set out to create an experience like no other, GingerSnap PhotoCamper!
What has been your biggest win as a freelancer?
Our photo campers are such a statement piece at events and are guaranteed to spark interest and curiosity. It truly brings so much joy to my heart to see and hear laughter and giggles of our clients and guests as they experience and create tangible moments!
What are some of the hurdles you’ve overcome as a freelancer in Houston? Do you think this hurdles are indicative to Houston or to the freelancer profession overall?
GingerSnap PhotoCamper was launched into an unknown market. We are Houston’s Original, Houston’s First Photo Camper so “hurdles” seems like an understatement. It was important to determine a demographic and learn how to market to our ideal client. It was also important to begin networking in order to learn more about my industry. I also had to give myself grace and remind myself of the joy and happiness we bring to people.
