Time not simply for a name change, but time to invest. Not the big-bucks, big-risks, put-all-of-your-savings-on-the-line type of investing. Personal investing. Investing in me.
Though I’m ashamed to admit it, when I began this business in 2015, I was SO afraid. Afraid of the criticisms that might come from not being good enough. From not having formal training in photography. From not having any knowledge on how to run my own company. From anything and everything.
I realize now that (constructive) criticism should be encouraged. It means people are taking notice of my work. That they feel compelled to comment on it. That I have an opportunity to learn from what they have to say and to GROW from their feedback.
My fears of 2015 prevented me from putting my name on my business, and instead led me to hide behind an arbitrary word that had some meaning to me, but didn’t tell anyone who I was.
I’m a dreamer. I’m a hustler. I’m a life-long learner. I’m a caring and compassionate friend, mama and wife. I’m a creative spirit. I’m Kelsey, and I’m a photographer.
Not having my name on my business is by far the biggest professional mistake I have made so far. And it’s time to correct it.
I’m THRILLED to share my new name and brand with everyone out there who has been a part of my journey so far, and with all those who I will serve in the future.
