Hiya! Im Kelley.
I'm a photographer, and I'm based in Atlanta and Los Angeles.
You knew that.
Here are some things you might not know though:
I've been a professional photographer for 4 years.
I currently bring in more than double what I made at my final corporate job. Ain't no glass ceilings here.
I dont hate Mondays. cuz i do what i want!
All of my bills are paid solely with money I make through my photography business. My wife quit her job in March and travels with me.
I am not a starving artist. My savings account + emergency fund is good and juicy.
AND I travel a lot. For work and for fun. This year I hopped on a plane from Atlanta to Iceland, Thailand, NYC (a few times), Sacramento, New Orleans, St. Louis, San Francisco, Sacramento, Vermont and of course monthly trips to Los Angeles (my second home) to get some sun. Last year NYC (a few times), Colorado, Rome, Firenze/Florence, Paris, DC, Turks and Caicos, Houston, Nashville, Florida, North Carolina, Richmond, and Austin. Im so thankful to have clients everywhere!
My corporate background in sales helped me avoid HELLA mistakes in my own business that first-year creative entrepreneurs often have to learn the hard way.
Y'all, being a full-time photographer allows me to travel to new places, meet new people, make lifelong friends, make more than enough money, have the freedom I covet and fulfill my passion for being a girlboss since childhood all at once!
And I can help you do the same!
I'm giving you this mini behind-the-scenes tour of my life as a photographer to show you the awesome things that can happen when you get laser focused and work your bum off. Yes, being a creative entrepreneur is hard work, but the saying 'work hard, play hard' definitely applies here. You got this!!
you Just starting out? Perfect!
Been doing this for a few years? Awesome!
You want to do this full time? Yes!
Being an associate photog is good enough? You go glen coco!
