Describe your business.
I’m an on-location modern photographer serving the El Dorado Hills, Folsom and Sacramento areas. I specialize in stylized lifestyle portraits for families, couples, kids and teens. I love to capture the colorful and candid side of life! My goal as a photographer is to capture true personalities at every age, to celebrate the spirit of a child and help families preserve memories. I mix lifestyle photography with fine art imagery to capture those moments, and offer images you want to decorate your walls with and preserve in albums.
Why is your staff the best in the business?
With my husband working full-time, I’m blessed to stay at home and care for our two adorable little kiddos, ages 3 and 5, full-time. My family is not my staff (well, maybe sometimes they feel like they are); rather, they are my biggest supporters. I also have a great circle of friends who are always willing to lend a hand to help me run my business—from babysitting to assisting on shoots. I have an awesome support system.
What is your biggest job perk?
My two biggest job perks are being able to work from home and having a flexible schedule. Another huge perk is working with my market, which are primarily moms. Whether working outside the home or in the home, moms understand other moms. I do over-the-phone consultations for all inquiries and when all attempts fail to keep my little ones quiet “while I’m on the phone” (in my stern mom voice), I generally get a laugh on the other side with an added “I totally understand.” Moms are just awesome!
What’s your favorite place to eat out locally?
Relish Burger Bar—I love “kids-eat-free” Sundays!
And finally, customer service is...?
Important in so many ways. From the first inquiry to delivery of products, I make sure to communicate and walk my clients through each step of the process.
