One of my favorite article series and the best part about my job is getting to interview such inspiring #ladybosses. Each of their stores captivates me and this one is no different; this week I had to pleasure of interviewing an old friend who just started up here photography business AND IS KILLIN’ IT 💪🏻💪🏻
Katie and I met about eight-ish years ago? Before we were married, before we had families – we were young and cute. Now with families and husbands of our own, we’ve reconnected and I’m so glad we did! Let’s jump right into her interview!
Tell the readers a bit about yourself? What projects are you currently working on?
I’m 30 years old, a wife and a mom of a very sweet 3 year old. The project I’m currently working on is editing a wedding I photographed. Currently I’m working on Prom, Graudation and Mother’s Day Specials too!
I know your baby is still really little, how are you handling balancing starting your photography business AND watching after him? It must keep you incredibly busy!
It’s very hard, but I have an incredible support system. If I have any shoots during the week my mother-in law will watch him or if my family is in town they will watch him too. My husband is incredibly supportive too!
What got you started? Who inspired you to start your photography business?
I had picked up my Dad’s camera when I was in High School and loved it – I didn’t a great job taking photos. More recently, my husband was the one that actually inspired me to get back into it. That’s how KatieMoPhoto got started!
Any big milestones recently?
I just celebrated my 1 year anniversary for my business!
How about road blocks? What did you do to overcome them?
I have hit road blocks, but my support system (especially my husband and son) were there to help me get back on track.
This article series is all about powerful LADY BOSSES! Is there a female role model that you look up to the most? Why?
I would have to say my Mom, as a child I saw her go through so many challenges – yet she always preserved! She worked hard to send me to dance classes and compitetions. It truly inspires me to work hard today!
What’s next for you, in regards to your business? What would you like to see yourself doing in the future?
I would love to build up my clientele and portfolio – really see my business become a success!
Tell the readers a fun fact about yourself or hobbies? (bonus points if I don’t already know it! 😉).
Fun fact – I danced for 19 years in compitetion! Fun hobbies – hanging out with my son! We love to play with legos or the Nintendo Switch!
You started your business from scratch – What would you tell other women that are looking to do the same?
Follow your heart! Always do what you want to do no matter what; not what others tell you is right.
Lastly, let’s finish this up with your favorite quote!!
“She wanrned him not to be deceived by appearance, for beauty is found within”
