Year One – Starting A Photography Business
Wow! I can’t believe it’s been a year since I decided to jump in with both feet and take my photography serious. The last year of my life has transformed and blossomed into something beyond my wildest dreams. I never set out to be a photographer, but I QUICKLY fell in love with it and wanted to run full speed into creating this beautiful business that is Kaylin Lindsey Photography. Is it perfect? No. Do I still have room to grow? Always. Am I proud of the work I have created over the last year? Damn right!
So let’s look back on the past year…I had taken a few photos here and there, like this maternity session, and was super proud of what I was creating. But it wasn’t until one certain shoot that I knew I wanted to take photography seriously. My sweet nephew was born June 29th, 2019. I was lucky enough to be able to take some Fresh 48 pictures for my brother and sister in law and Y’ALL! Those pictures. Those pictures changed everything for me. They were so good. I loved them SO much. And I was SO damn proud of them. I cried. I felt confident. I felt….proud. And I hadn’t felt that way in a LONG time. (And actually, these photos went viral for me on Pinterest so that was fun, too!) Although I feel proud of our BEAUTIFUL wedding films we put out, I always felt like Michael was the big shot on that because he is the one who does the editing. So for the first time, I felt like I had something to be proud of that was mine.
After this photoshoot I knew I was on to something and I could run as fast and as far with photography as I wanted to. And that excited me.
Over the past year I have met amazing families, captured breathtaking weddings, and created memories for people that will last them forever. I have shot pictures all over the state. I have shot pictures for people I’ve known for years, and people that I met the day of the photoshoot. I have travelled hours and hours in a day for shoots and I have spent hours and hours editing portraits that I pray people will enjoy.
The last year of my life has been a complete transformation.
I know my business is only starting out and that is the most beautiful thing to me.
THANK YOU for allowing me to dream this dream. THANK YOU for trusting me with your pictures needs. THANK YOU for supporting this by sharing me with your friends and family.
All my love,
