How Does Your Work Enable You to Connect to and Fulfill Your Life Purpose/Passion?
I am able to use my natural ability to create a calming and stress-free environment through the business of photography.
Who Is Your Ideal Client and Why?
My ideal client is a women who is a service-based business owner. She can confidently call the shots in her business, but when it comes to being in front of the camera, she shrinks. She becomes anxious because she isn’t educated about what it takes to have a successful photoshoot and assumes it is her sole responsibility to know how to BE in front of the camera. Preparation and being educated about the process is a must for her. She does not do well when not in control. She also needs someone who actually listens to her needs. They should be able to possibly anticipate them when she may not be able to articulate what exactly it is that she needs.
What Unique Offerings Do You Provide?
My newest offering is my “Visualize and Plan” virtual sit-down session. It is currently included with all of my photography packages. I have designed a stand alone service for those who want to begin the planning for a future photoshoot, but may not be in the market just yet to book a photography session. Session topics include:
-We discuss where there are gaps in your online presence and how to fill those gaps.
-We discuss the vision for a future shoot
-We will brainstorm 2-3 photo stories (a plan for how you will be photographed)
-Wardrobe evaluation (determining if a wardrobe stylist referral is needed)
*option to apply payment as a credit toward a full session booked within 60 days of planning session.
I offer headshot & profile sessions for those who are in need of a profile image refresher. I offer both full and half day branding sessions for those who have done a complete business branding revamp or have started a new business and need a large collection of images for a variety of needs other than to update their profile image.
You can view the services offered at my website: www.kyeanajones.com.

Favorite Place to Escape and Refuel?
I learned very shortly before the shutdown that I enjoy what they call “work vacations”. Fly anywhere, rent a hotel, bring your laptop, get to work. Make time to try different restaurants and explore the area.
