When I started Kylee Ann Photography nearly a decade ago, I was shooting everything from weddings to families to births. After years of hustling nights and weekends, I realized I was starting to miss my kid's soccer games and nights with my family. And something had to change.
I had TWO options. Cut back and just take great pictures of my kids for fun or transition to shooting brands and work during the day during school hours instead. It was then and there that I committed to being a brand photographer.
My business quickly went from nights and weekends, to 10-2 four days a week for a consistent, amazing paychecks monthly...even in the slow season.
After I niched into commercial photography:
- I filled up my calendar monthly with repeating clients instead of constantly having to market for new business
- I made 4 then 5 figures every month, even during slow season
- I stopped missing soccer games, and kept my work hours within my big kid's school schedules
- I made paychecks and was able to shoot products EVEN and ESPECIALLY during a global pandemic
I am passionate about teaching photographers how find their niche in Small Brand Photography and become profitable photographers without giving up their lives.
IMAGINE IF YOU COULD...
- have a successful and profitable business without giving up your nights and weekends
- get consistent (and amazing) paychecks year round even during slow season
- shoot for the same clients every month instead of constantly searching for more.
- have complete control of your schedule and how many hours you work each week

"wow wow WOW!!! Kylee Ann Maughan I just finished the first section of your brand photography course, and I'm floored. So thorough and informative. I'm fresh out of a workshop with another photographer about commercial photography, and I am sad I didn't get to this first. I could have saved a whole lot of money! 😂
I'm sure I have questions, but I am buzzing from how inspired and equipped I feel to start reaching out to brands, and booking more shoots!
THANK YOU!!! You're doing such an amazing service, and I'm so excited to dive in further in the morning! "

"Holy moly, Kylee! I'm not even half way done with the course and I'm blown away with how thorough and well thought out it is! I've taken another commercial photography course and was left with so many questions afterward and I felt that it was not worth what I invested.
But this - this is amazing! I'm pumped up and feeling confident that I'm going to come out of this course with all the tools and knowledge I'll need to get my brand photography growing! Thank you for all the hard work, knowledge, and actionable items you packed into this! 👏"
