I’m Kellianne, a wedding and portraits photographer. I am a small business owner, entrepreneur, wife, mom and so much more. While I already work from home, my business requires me to be with people (since that’s what I photograph).
My business, like so many others has been effectively shut down do to social distancing for the Covid-19 virus. I will not go out of business, but I also can’t work right now. Even though I know I can photograph clients with social distancing rules in place, I’m okay with not because I want to do whatever I can to keep people like my mom and dad safe.
But here’s the thing, many small businesses will be forced to shut down during this time. I’ve seen so many amazing people in our community come together to support small businesses so far, so let’s keep doing that!
While many businesses need money right now to survive, especially the food industry, there is only so much money you can spend to help your favorite businesses.
There are so many ways to support small businesses without giving money. Here are a few…
Okay, this is the money one 🙂 If you have the funds, please buy 1 thing each day from one of your favorite small businesses. This will help keep them going so you can buy more from them in the future.
If you’ve ever thought about having family photos taken or a headshot, I’d love for you to buy from me. The session will not expire and will have flexible scheduling. Also, anyone who buys a session now will get priority booking (yes those precious Saturday slots will be open to you).
If you’ve used my services in the past, a great way to help my business at this time is to leave a Google Review. You can use this link to directly access my Google Review page: Click to add a Google review!
These reviews are used by Google to rank us in Google search. Every review helps bring in more business. Every review is like cash in hand for my business.
Follow us on Instagram. I recently split up my Instagram account into the 3 categories that I photograph. If you don’t already follow me, please follow the one you love or all three. It really does help!
I will soon be showing amazing projects you can do with your kids as well as giving tips for getting great photos on your own. I hope this will become my main Instagram feed where I can keep investing in the amazing families I get to work with!
I use this feed to not only show off my beautiful brides and their creative and personal weddings, but also to support my fellow small business owners in the wedding industry. I love being able to share about our marriage too! My goal is to create a place where my brides can be a community, learning how to have strong and healthy marriages.
My goal is to show off those awesome headshots we take in the studio and around town. I also love to highlight working professionals and share what they love to do and who they are! If you’ve had you headshot taken by me, please follow this feed. I’ll be posting fun ideas on how to use your headshot as well as tips for taking casual photos of yourself on the go.
Hang out on the blog and leave little comments on posts. This helps too!
Lastly, share our website, Instagram feed, blog posts and FB posts with your friends.
Thank you so much for supporting your favorite small businesses! We’ve already seen so much support in our community. I feel so blessed to be around such amazing people!
Not often do events mean as much to me as this one. My sister is finally engaged!! Courtney and her fiance held an elegant and fun, garden engagement party, thrown by Bryan’s mom. The fun went on and on. People stayed and partied with the guests of honor for about 8 hours!!! It was so amazing to be surrounded by the absolute most important people in their lives. Of course, we were missing a ton of family on both sides and friends, but if everyone they love was there, then it would have been the entire wedding guest list. It was a great day of Mimosas, Bloody Mary’s and true LOVE! I’m so incredibly happy for these two and I can’t wait for the wedding day!
Everyone had so much fun!! I know this may seem like a totally random image to add into the mix, BUT it’s SOOO my family. My aunt is trying to take an amazing photo while my cousin is goofing around making his classic silly faces. My dad and two uncles, undoubtedly just got finished singing a song together and are laughing, having fun and waiting for my aunt to take a pic while someone else takes a photo of her (that’s me). Seriously, I think we have countless photos of someone in my family taking a photo of someone else taking a photo. So classic!! Plus I love that everyone is just being themselves and having fun.
Have I told you that I love to teach? I host Mom’s With Camera’s workshops all the time! The most fun is when someone hosts in their own home and it becomes a fun filled wine and raffle night where moms and dads learn how to take photos of their kids. This one was hosted by a friend of mine and was filled with beautiful moms, mostly from my bunco group! We raffled off awesome photo prizes as I taught the technical and creative sides of photography. I think you can really see how much fun we all had! If you’d like to host or attend a class at my studio, contact me!
I’m so excited for our new studio space in downtown Bend, OR. It was a lot of hard work but it looks great. By the way, I did make the tables from scratch. And the awesome table legs came from a local welder.
