In the past 5 years of our business we have tried all different ways to create an amazing client experience, an efficient workflow and a top notch product. We were in your position, maybe some of you have no idea where to go, what products to use and what to invest in. It's taken years of trial and error to finally land on the gear and software that we use and we couldn't be happier. As a business owner, its really important to equip yourself with the right things that set you up with success so here are some of ours favorites!

You will notice that we do have some affiliate codes attached which just means you get an amazing deal and they know we sent you! Some of these we don't even get anything for but you know that we stand behind and firmly believe in the products that we use! 

Also, this isnt just limited to gear and software. We have learned from some of the best and here are our favorite resource and books that we have used to grow our business and highly suggest for anyone starting out!

words from our students

I literally don't know where I'd be without you guys. You helped me streamline my business in a way that gives me more time to focus on growing my business and time for more important things like friends and family. I was such a mess before you guys helped me get organized, and I could not be more grateful for your giving hearts.  You guys are such a blessing.

A while ago we lost all of our photos and they saved the day. I had no clue what to do when at 10 at night I walked in to the living room and Kelly was crying. You guys invited us into your home at 10:30 in all our pjs and helped us get it all situated. We got all the photos we needed, were able to get them to the clients, and now have a system to make sure that never happens again! You guys are amazing, and I'm very thankful to have you guys as friends and mentors!

- Moving Mountains Photography

You mentioned one thing to do after every session that I blog. I now include that when I send out that email and it is AMAZING! The amount of engagement on my site has skyrocketed and it's helped my SEO & Exposure!
