Hi, I'm Brianna Kinsley and I'm so glad you're here!
This is the first post EVER on the Brianna Kinsley Photography blog, and I couldn't be more excited! Not only will you get to know more about me and my work here, you'll see lots of helpful posts about creating content, branding, business, styling, and anything related to being a female entrepreneur.
More than anything I want this space to be an encouragement to you. I know that life isn't perfect, and starting and running a business can be hard. Having someone who's in it with you can make it all so much better. So I'm here to bring you more than ideas, but my heart, candid thoughts, and a friendly voice to say "hang in there!".
A little bit about me...
I'm a 27 year old photographer currently living in Chino Valley, AZ. Spotify playlists are my best friend ;) And you can most likely find me in a band tee or snuggled in one of my 15 sweaters. I make a mean homemade mac n cheese, am coffee obsessed, and when I'm not chasing around my three kiddos or editing photos, I'm probably watching Netflix with my husband. We love Jesus, tattoos, and learning about how to grow a business in the 21st century. It's a totally crazy and fun ride!
Arizona has been my home for most of my life, except for a few amazing excursions to California and Washington. I love watching a good sunset, driving through the forest, and sinking my toes in to the sand. I believe that living in each of those places has made me broaden my creative eye and see different lifestyles in a more understanding way.
Growing up I was into lots of creative arts: dancing, drawing, painting, singing, poetry and songwriting, crafting, and of course...photography. All of these things impact the way I think about business. It's not all numbers and transactions. The heart connection necessary to really impact someone in a way that makes them feel good and want to stick around long term isn't found in bland technical - only interactions. It's found in real stories, places of understanding, and the "me too" moments.
So I'm all about helping my fellow female entrepreneurs grow their businesses through "heart connection". Whether you have a brick and mortar retail or service based business, online business or blog, or you're an artist or model I believe that you have something to offer that will really connect with others.
What is my unique take on creating connective content?
I believe that photographs are a HUGE way that people connect with brands in our modern age. They have the power to give split second impressions and embody and all that you stand for and are trying to produce. Photographs can SHOW a lifestyle at a glance.
Plus, photographs are useful just about everywhere that you need to be present in your business or creative venture. You use them on/in your...
Website (Homepage, about, contact, services etc.)
Social media posts
It's a visual world out there! So branded content that speaks about who you are, what you stand for, and connects you with your ideal client is key to creating and growing a thriving business.
I would love for you to join me as I dive into the world of branding and photography, and how you can make killer content that will speak to all the right people.
