Hi! I'm Kristi! I left my teaching job and started my photography business in 2014 after my youngest was born because I wanted more freedom and flexibility in my schedule to spend time with my babies. In the beginning of my photography journey I spread myself too thin trying to photograph everything. I'm talking weddings, seniors, families, headshots, and everything in between. I even took a job photographing parts of a space satellite once (no joke) and ended up with even less time to do the things I loved than when I had been teaching.
Once I started photographing newborns I knew I had found my passion and dove head first into the niche determined to create a successful business without giving up family time. My kiddos are now 10 and 8 years old. Over the past 8 years I have learned how to create beautiful images for families, map out a client experience that allows me to run a thriving photography business, focus on my family, and ditch the hustle. I was able to more than double my income even though I was cutting out all non newborn sessions and I currently book out between 4 and 8 months in advance.
Once I had a system down I couldn’t wait to share it with other photographers ready to stop running around trying to do everything and lean into their passion. Now in addition to getting to spend my days photographing babies I also get to share what I have learned with other photographers ready to master the newborn niche and run a business that aligns with their lives. Let's do this thing!
