JOIN THE TEAM!

KKP is Hiring Our FIRST Part-Time Employee!!

I am just ecstatic to finally announce the big news that Kyle Kelley Photography is hiring!! After much question, thought, prayer + consideration, I have decided to link arms with someone who will add value to my life + business by transforming this one-woman show to a small team. Kyle Kelley Photography just celebrated four years of business + I am excited to move forward into the next phase of entrepreneurship. In the past year my husband + I have welcomed a baby girl + in the fall we will be welcoming another one! I have hit maximum capacity + feel that I am at a place where the workload is beyond my ability as one person. I am eager + excited to hire an Office + Studio Assistant, a part-time position, that will help to efficiently move this business forward!

Applicants must be self-starters, motivated workers + eager to learn. As the Office + Studio Assistant, you will be involved in the daily work of a photography business: corresponding with clients via email + phone, scheduling sessions + meetings, fulfilling orders, organizing + sending out galleries, drafting contracts + invoices, keeping office supplies fully stocked, running personal + business errands, managing client folders, as well as learning office + studio-specific software + tasks.

This position is an office position only, not a shooting position. If you are an aspiring photographer or know how to work a camera, that is wonderful, but not required for consideration. I may or may not expand this position to include photography training in the future, but nothing is set in stone.

This is not the same as an internship! I am looking for someone to join the team year-round with the Office + Studio Assistant position.

  • Someone who has a passion for working with others (including children)

  • A solid work ethic is super important, as well as someone who pays close attention to detail, is orderly + can work well with problem solving

  • Someone who is kind, has an out-going personality + positive attitude

  • Someone who is willing to do whatever it takes to get the job done + contribute to a team

  • Good knowledge with Microsoft Outlook, Microsoft Word + Microsoft Excel

  • Can handle + keep order with calendars

  • A working knowledge of Photoshop, Lightroom + social media programming is a bonus

  • Personal/administrative assistant experience is a huge bonus

  • Someone who is interested + willing to assist at sessions both in-studio + on location (may include occasional Saturdays)


HERE IS WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT TO LEARN:

  • The big + little things required to keep an office + studio running smoothly

  • The ins + outs to operating a small business

  • How to maintain photography equipment

  • The flow of a session day + working with growing families as well as other vendors

  • Client communication + what it takes to make sessions + client relationships successful

  • The basics of social media to grow a small business + interacting with others + followers

  • Learning how to successfully write up + send out contracts + invoices

THE DETAILS:

  • This is a part-time, contracted position

  • The person hired will work in-office Tuesdays through Fridays for 5 hours/day

  • The position will begin August 1, 2019

  • The compensation is $10-$13 per hour based on experience

Brand New Baby Sister

Typically January is a slower month because of how busy the fall season gets, but 2019 started off STRONG + full of so many new faces!! December was busy of baby births, so my January was jam packed with lots of sweet Newborns, Clara included! This new family of four was such a joy + breeze to work with! Whenever there are older siblings in the mix I will always work off of their energy! If they need some time to get used to me around we’ll play a little bit + make sure mom + dad are near. However, big sister was such a fun time + welcomed me with the kindest hello! She made my job so easy + was such a champ for how long she participated!! The fun doesn’t stop with these images!! Momma decided to customize her own Baby Bundle at booking so I will have the honor of photographing Clara through her first year!! I can’t wait to see her in six months + see how much she grows!! Stay tuned for this little one’s Milestone Session, but for now, enjoy this incredibly adorable Newborn Session!!
