We’re not moving, exactly…. But we are expanding!
For those of you that don’t know, Justin and I were engaged on Valentine’s Day! It’s a very exciting time and we are having a great time starting to plan the wedding (right Hunny?!). If you want to check out that story- click here 😀
But with that fun announcement I’ve had a lot of questions regarding the business- Naturally 😀 Have no fear my Saint Louis family, KWP is still up and running and will continue to do so! That’s not to say, however, that there won’t be a few changes!
#1 Change- Justin is a manager- something my clients and I have known was needed A LONG TIME. While the creative side and in-person interactions with clients has been pretty easy for me; the business, communication and retouching sides have made for some rough experiences with some of my clients. While it’s never been intentional, it’s been an uphill battle from the beginning. Thankfully, I have a great man by my side that wants to see myself and the business succeed and we have been using the last 3 weeks to create a comprehensive plan to make sure that current and future orders are handled in a timely manner- check out that white board! It’s going to be a game changer!
#2 KWP on the Move- I have moved to Kansas City- Pleasant Hill to be exact! There is a great man and two fantastic kiddos that have my heart, and Momma Kate doesn’t want to miss out on too much. The plan that we’ve been using, and that has been working pretty well so far, is that 1 week a month I am in STL for a full week to shoot sessions and meet with clients. That’s not to say I won’t make a trip back should that schedule not work with everyone. (My accountant is going to love my mileage log this year!) For example- I’m in STL this week and have 2 more weekends and a couple of days at the end of the month that I’ll be here because there was a session that could only happen the 24th– Y’all are important to me and I want to take care of you to the best of my abilities! Speaking of sessions that are coming up- that session on the 24th is for my Kindergarten Buddy- She’s graduating from COLLEGE! Pardon me while I go take my Centrum Silver….
#3 Expansion- it’s a good thing! As our circle of friends grows and as I have started to interact with new businesses in the KC Metro, the business has naturally started to expand, and that is something that we are super excited about. With a new town comes new connections and a change of scenery, opening KWP up to new opportunities! So just as STL will have unique sessions, so will KC- and if you should ever want to travel to either, I typically have a guest room or a couch to spare!
So to all of my faithful friends, my supporting family, and and truly appreciated clients, thanks for supporting our expansion and all of the congratulations y’all have sent. We are really looking forward to serving both Saint Louis and Kansas City- we LOVE YOU GUYS!
