 Full Story

Hey there! I’m a southern girl living near the beaches of Southern California with a life calling to pursue and inspire Christlikeness in everything I do. Before I started my photo editing business three years ago, I grew up in Georgia loving all things creative. That’s why I went to college in Virginia and got my degree in graphic design. Five years ago I moved to LA to be a freelance graphic designer, crafting everything from promotions to websites. I worked my way up at a multimillion dollar company and became the marketing director in less than two years. 

My Story

While working in marketing was a great springboard for the career I have now, at the time I felt the stress and burnout of working long corporate days. Nevermind the fact that I wasn’t living out my purpose or reaching for the life of my dreams. I always wanted to be a mom but I knew that living in the city I felt called to meant contributing financially to my family at the same time. I needed another option. That’s when I turned my focus to photography.

I’d always loved photography and the goal was to build a flexible career where I could enjoy the benefits of being a future stay-at-home mom. But the startup costs of starting a photography business were way too expensive. Luckily, I saw a need for photo editing in the industry and already had a skill for editing from my years using tools like Photoshop and Lightroom. Ultimately, photo editing was a better fit for my abilities and goals. And I’ve never looked back!

I love the life photo editing has given me. 
But I know what it’s like to struggle. In 2016, I only had 4 clients and 27 weddings to edit. That wasn’t going to cut it financially. But once I created a process unique to my business that helped me plan my year, get paid regularly, and manage my workflows, I had 14 clients and 180 weddings booked for the rest of the year!

God showed me that I had something to share with other photo editors. After editing more than 500 weddings and over 300,000 photos, I’ve learned the ups and downs of owning and growing a photo editing business. In 2019, I pivoted my business from photo editing to help fellow editors grow their businesses, set goals, and bring faith into their businesses. Today, I sell marketing resources and education classes to help YOU thrive and grow in the photo editing industry. I can’t wait to help you pursue your passions, find your dream clients, and grow your business with purpose.

Core Values

Christ above all

I believe in pursuing Christlikeness through photo editing and education. Every business decision I make is driven by God’s plan for me. 

A successful business is one that gives you more time with your family and less late-night hours parked at a computer screen. Burning both ends of the candle isn’t what life is about. 

When a noisy webspace tells you 6-figures is the only path to success, it’s hard not to feel inadequate. But here, we know that money is a tool, not a determiner of success. A profitable business may be the goal but not at the risk of your sanity, well-being, and joy.

value and purpose over success or failure.

money doesn’t lead to ultimate happiness.

What can I say? I’m a TV show junkie totally obsessed with Criminal Minds, Blue Bloods, and Hawaii 5-0. But if you were to bet what I’m watching while editing photos, it would probably be I Love Lucy.

"I have gained so much confidence in building my editing business"

"Kristen is such a generous soul. She shares her experiences and insight to the betterment of everyone around her, and I’ve learned so much from her as I started my own journey into private editing. If she wants to share it or teach it, I want to learn it because I’ve already experienced the value of what she brings to the editing community and have gained so much confidence in building my editing business."

"I am a control freak...so letting go of editing my weddings was a huge step"

"I was consumed with edits and getting little sleep, which is a terrible combination! I would stay up until 2am color correcting, just to realize the next day that my edits got more and more green and have to start all over again! I am a control freak in every aspect of my business so letting go of editing my weddings was a huge step, and I wish I had done it sooner! Kristen has made the process so easy and given me back so much time!"
