Hey friend, I'm Kara —

Your biz bestie!

You’re probably here because you’re a photographer or small business owner that's feeling overwhelmed and like there isn’t enough time in the day to get all of the tasks and to-do’s crossed off your list.

As a wedding and family photographer of 13+ years, trust me, I’ve been in your shoes. So, imagine for a moment that you could get more time back in your business and life to focus on the things that matter the most… 

It's an honor to help photographers & small business owners ditch the time-sucking tasks they dread and give them more freedom and time to do what they love.

Get to know your virtual assistant & biz bestie

This is my story.

I picked up a camera for the first time in 2010 and honestly haven't really looked back!

Over the past decade (and then some), I’ve built a successful wedding and family photography business that brings me joy. From the early days of starting a business, I quickly realized that there are many more tasks photographers require that aren’t taking photos… It’s no surprise that the weight of those tasks can start to feel overwhelming. It's okay to want to focus more on the photography that you love and less on the seemingly never-ending business tasks and to-do’s. 

Throughout the years, I’ve always had a heart for small businesses and engaged in spaces to connect with, offer advice, mentor, cheer on, and build community with fellow photographers and small business owners near and far. Not many see the hard work that goes on behind the scenes... You're not alone, and it's encouraging to connect to someone that actually "gets it". 

If you know me IRL, you know that I love checking things off my to-do list. I'm a go-getter, problem-solver, and one of the most organized people you'll meet. I'm your virtual assistant and biz bestie that can totally relate and has been in your shoes.

It’s an honor that this chapter of taking limited weddings and sessions is beautifully balanced with helping other photographers and small business owners as a virtual assistant. It's the best of both worlds!
