Studio Tour: Kitti McMeel
“At 63 years old, I had just been fired from my job. Then I stumbled across Sue. It was her business model that allowed me – someone who had no experience in the photography business and not even a photographer, to hit the ground running and create a new and exciting business opportunity for myself. I could never have done this without the skills Sue taught me.”
SBE: What did it mean to you to have Sue come to your studio?
Kitti: “Having Sue come to my studio was a dream come true! I never imagined when I found Sue online that one day she would be standing there with me! It was both terrifying and exhilarating. As the day progressed I got comfortable, but at first it was a little like deer in the headlights! But Sue made me feel so comfortable and it was such a gift having her there. I did some of my best work that day.”
SBE: How have you grown since your studio tour?
K: “Things have changed quite a bit since Sue came to my studio. I’ve made a few adjustments to the space based on feedback from her. I’ve learned to keep that work/life balance that we talked about that day. I’ve grown so much as a business person and a photographer and feel like I’ve really come into my own.”
