Hey we’re Lisa and Carley
We’ve jumped in together to teach because we were tired of watching heaps of lovely and talented UK family photographers wander around in circles smacking into the same road blocks.
It made us sad and them dizzy.
We knew there was a clearer route for them to cruise along, one that felt exhilarating and comfy at the same time. So we turn our businesses inside out - took stock of all the questions, the why's, the how's and the wow's about each of our businesses and set about turning them into some real & raw family photography training straight from our hearts and minds.
Both of our brands consistantly serve amazing UK client bases, full of warm and nostalgic people who value photography.
We have sustainable, profitable business models that enable us to invest in ourselves, shoot what and who we love and share our version of success with people like you.
We found that a lot of the lifestyle family photography training out there is from across the pond and that none of it quite hit the spot when it came to all the quirks that make our market thoroughly British.
4000 square feet homes, prairies and mountain ranges are few and far between on these small isles and in all honesty, people in the UK are also a lot different.
Either that, or the other photography training in the UK didn't quite have the close-up, joy filled connection and vibe that both our brands embody.
So back in late 2019 we decided to come together and form Lisa and Carley. Over the years and through a pandemic, we've zoom mentored, shot multiple sold out workshops and breathed fresh air into the family photography education market in the uk.
All this aside, we both still run full on, full time lifestyle family photography businesses 12 months of the year. We truly walk the walk and talk the talk and so are perfectly placed to understand the current twists, turns and demands of todays market.
Aside from our businesses, we are both mamas of 3 kids each, and married to our husbands who both have jobs away from the photography industry.
Around the school runs, the night feeds and all the bits in between. We've each grown our family photography businesses around our family and figured out our own parameters of success, amongst the life juggles.
We both believe that who you surround yourself with in life matters and this should also be the same for your business.
