Tell us about Silver Kiss Photography:

We specialize in small photography events such as bridal showers, children’s birthday parties, engagement photos, family photos, weddings, and much more.

Why did you start this business?

After years of being the designated girlfriend photographer, I decided to start my own photography business after being asked by a friend to take pictures for her bachelorette party, bridal shower, and wedding. I thought to myself, Hey I am pretty good at this…I should be getting paid!

Why did you go into this industry?

I have always been more comfortable behind the camera more so instead of being in front of it. My dad had a passion for taking pictures and chronicling time through images. It is one of the gifts that were passed on to me.

What challenges did you face launching your business?

The most challenging thing for starting my business is actually being disciplined enough to make time to develop more marketing strategies such as a true website and more social media pages.
