I often get asked why I chose to name my business Ledgehill Photography. Why didn't I name it Kayte Churchill Photography like all of the other photo studios out there. Why did I have to be different anyway..
Well there are two reasons I did that. The main reason I choose to go in a different direction is because I truly believe that I am part of a team. I may be behind the lens but I am definitely not the only one that produces the work that you see. I have a team of VERY talented ladies who help me perform my best every day. I would love to introduce them to you!
This is me. I'm Kayte and I am the one behind the lens. I wear many hats including taking the pictures and editing them. I also write the blog posts and clean the bathroom. It's a glamorous job I tell ya!
This is my assistant Brittany! She is an indispensable part of the team. Her job is to keep me on task. When I am in my creative space, I forget about EVERYTHING else. She tells me what to do and when to do it as far as marketing is concerned. When you see me post something on Facebook or Instagram, she is the one that has scheduled it. She still makes me write everything, but I keep trying to pass it on to her. LOL. She thinks it's more authentic coming from me though.
This is Gayle. She is my bookkeeper extraordinaire! She takes care of my money and taxes and all of that fun stuff. She tells me when I can buy a new camera or lens or when I have to get out and do more work (which is usually all of the time). I am SO fortunate to have her watching out for my finances!
And last but not least, my AMAZING stylists! These ladies are incredible and make my clients look like rockstars! I couldn't produce the images I do without their brilliant work.
Ha! After all of that, I never actually told you why I chose Ledgehill Photography as the name of my business!
My studio is situated at the bottom of Winter Hill and the top of Ledgehill in Chelsea. Back when my house was built (in the 1850's) the original owner owned all of this land. I thought it would be appropriate to name it after the place I call home. My own little piece of paradise. I hope that when you visit the studio you love it as much as I do!
So that's it! Now you know the meaning behind the name Ledgehill Photography! Are you surprised or did you know all along?
