After five years of running my own photography business and spending the past year working extensively with other photographers and videographers, I have learned a few things about creating a business that works. It takes a bit of organization and maintenance, but no matter how busy you are, it IS possible to have a profitable business that runs smoothly!
The secret lies in effective systems for each and every aspect of your business. A system is basically any repeatable process that is put in place to create a more productive, efficient environment.
I help busy creative entrepreneurs streamline and systematize their businesses.
If you are tired of feeling overwhelmed and frustrated by your business, here’s how I can help…..
“Kristin has been so helpful in getting my artist “right brain” to function more business-like as I’ve implemented her systems into my workflow! She is very easy to work with, explains things well and has a great system already in place that most businesses can implement right away. I am very impressed with her follow up and making sure that I’m learning the workflow, because it definitely takes some practice! Thank you Kristin Brown for making my office work much less daunting!”

“I love to shoot, I had a great product, and clients were booking. The problem? With the growth came a dramatic increase in the number of follow ups, contracts, billing, client questions, scheduling and more. Finding myself doing less of what I loved about my business (shooting, creating, working with people) it became clear my business was running me and not the other way around. Near the point I was almost overcome with all of these growing pains I was referred to Kristin. In the beginning (because my business is my life!) it was stressful for me to open up and let go as I felt extremely vulnerable, but as a professional she put me at ease. Kristin understands the industry and gained my trust right away. The process of sharing with her my approach of the back end side of my business was easy. She was able to take everything I was doing and, from all of their scattered origins, she organized everything into a simple yet very effective system. Since entrusting Kristin with many areas of the back end of my business it has continued to grow more than I EVER could have imagined doing on my own! If there is anything I’ve said that resonates with you or that you read about her consulting services I can tell you WITHOUT ANY HESITATION contact her!! Don’t wait! Just do it!!”
