One of my goals this year is to put myself out there a little more and share with my client's and potential clients what it is that drives Brittany Kelley Photography.
Most of you know that my professional back ground is in financial services. I love financial planning and the act of helping others achieve the freedom and security to chase their dreams. It's part of who I am and I deeply value the skills I've gained thus far.
So why am I a photographer?
My turning point was when I became a mother but not in the way you would think. When Hayden was about 2 I came to some pretty tough questions.
"How do I make sure that Hayden goes after his dreams fearlessly with everything he has? How do I teach him to not be afraid of failure and fall into the societal traps laid before him from birth? How do I teach him that most of what I worry about doesn't freaking matter?"
Yeah... the answer was:
I have to do it first. I have to show him. I have to do what I'm too afraid to do also.
So I am :)
I have the best answer ever....
I have no idea.
I just love it and can't explain it. I'm not even sorry. I get to earn a living doing what I love. That's all I need for now.
Now as for my clients... I use my passion in hopes of delivering something they will enjoy the process of and cherish the results for generations to come.
I love what I'm doing therefore I care deeply about my clients' experience. That's what it's all about for me. Of course I want the end result to be something that ignites emotion... but the experience of the entire process is where I've found I can make a difference.
-Entrepreneurs and other free lance creatives need imagery with passion behind it that truly captures what they represent.
- Families grow and change so quickly. It's not what you wear, its what you're feeling when the photograph is taken that will really last.
The list goes on of course. Bottom line is...
I want my clients to be well educated, feel supported, have fun, show up and be themselves. I'll do the rest.
It took me a long time to get where I am. I was terrified to do what I really wanted. So much possible failure and rejection. In hind sight that's the first clue to go for it!
A big thank you to my husband for all of his support and the extra push to get me out here... and to my son who's very existence holds me accountable to doing something that matters.
