haven't seen any growth or engagement for at least 3 months
working long hours daily but never seem to shorten your to do list or feel accomplished
little to no inquiries
or are busy for 2 months then dead for 3 months
being booked out for months, even having a waiting list
feeling more accomplished each day without working late into the night
creating content quickly and easily that get's your ideal clients messaging you saying "I love your work and need to hire you!"
opening up your email & not seeing inquiries for weeks or even months
feeling like you are scatterbrained, unorganized and can't finish tasks/projects
feeling frozen on what content to create which leads to either not showing up or only showcasing your work
Look no further, my creative friend
it's time to make an exit...
if you are...
Spending 4x's as much time in front of your computer as you are behind your camera...
Taking on jobs not aligned with your goals/dreams in fear of not having more jobs in the near future...
Struggling to convert the few inquiries received monthly into paying clients...
Suck at sales calls...
Working late into the night, missing out on time with family and friends...
Only posting your work/client's images (like literally you're hiding behind your camera)...
Spend HOURS creating content that feels salesy or receives little to no engagement so you feel like, what's the point...
Doubting your worth and your skill...
Living in fear of receiving a bad review so you don't even ask for one. Or feel to pushy if you ask more than once...
the burn out zone
Once you know exactly how to market yourself online, it's easier to get started. Getting started is the first step to gaining confidence.
Working with your ideal client with an experience that leaves them raving will bring you more clients just like them.
Gaining clarity in your ideal clients struggles, needs and goals makes it so much easier to create content that speaks directly to them.
Get more time back in your day. Check tasks and projects off your to do list. Work/life balance does exist if you have the right systems in place.
When you have intention and clarity, you get work/life balance and knowledge on what content to create to attract your ideal client. If you only have these two, then you face opening your email to little or no inquires and question your self worth or skill.
If you have uniqueness and courage, you will receive repeat business and less stress when the wrong clients don't book. But without intention and clarity, you'll feel less accomplished and confused or even frozen on what content to create.
I could literally go on and on but I think you get the point. Let's move on shall we?
but here's the thing...
After capturing weddings for nearly 18 years (10 year specializing in South Asian weddings) I wanted MY WEEKENDS BACK. I had been wanting to tap into personal branding photography for a few years, but the breaking point was in Spring of 2019 when I missed over half of my son's baseball games.
By fall of 2019 I officially launched the branding side of my business, really with no idea of what I was doing. I just knew I had to make it work if I wanted to stop taking on weddings.
Pivoting from Indian weddings where you do little to zero marketing to helping others market their business was a real eye opener. I had A LOT to figure out. I went through many business coaches and strategies before I figured out the type of business I wanted to run.
My goal was to gain clarity, niche down, scale, work less and finally check items off my to-do list consistently.
It took me over a year with many trials and errors to ‘get my $h!t together’. But in the end I built a business that runs on ambition, balance, integrity, and most importantly personal courage.
I never forethought that I would mentor other photographers. However, after a working 1:1 with a few pretty darn incredible photographers, I found a passion I never realized I had.
If you’re exhausted from busting your toosh, and working long hours all the while you feel like you’re getting nowhere, join me so we can end the madness and get you on the right path to reach your goals.
so who am I to teach you how to get your $h!t together?
I'm Kimberly S Romano, Tampa Bay’s premier personal branding photographer luxury real estate agents and mentor for photographers looking to find balance and scale their business online.

"I had been completely lost and overwhelmed in how to translate my message in a consistent and relatable way on social media. I was posting very inconsistency and my message not always referred back to my services offers. That would make me 'freeze' and not show up online. It's been an 'on and off' experience showing up on social media which resulted in an 'on and off' client influx.
I've been watching Kim exceed on her marketing strategies and truly attract her tribe and grow her business. Plus as a fellow mompreneur, I know Kim has walked the walk and has perfected her systems. Also, who doesn't LOVE Kim's bubbly personality and big smile?
Kim gave me the confidence to start writing and showing up which is vital for my marketing and business goals.
Kim is naturally talented in marketing. She has a clear system and is a great mentor. She is funny and working with her is easy! Plus, she is smart and talented at it. You can see she lights up for talking about it! That's passion that translates in excellence."

"I struggled with setting boundaries, understanding the problems I solve, what kind of offer I wanted to create, and making sure that everything i do needs to be related back to my offer(s).
I was feeling stressed, obligated, even unsure or convinced at times of my skills or worth. I think I forgot the thought " I can create this business to be whatever I wanted". I also wasn't sure if my client experience was up to par. I wasn't thorough in the targeting the problem or the negative thinking potential clients have so I can speak to the solution.
What I found the most impactful from working with Kimberly is learning how to set boundaries, the importance of speaking to my ideal clients problems and the solutions, re-evaluating my client experience and how to keep everything in my business simple and stop over thinking everything.
Kimberly is straight forward, and the program structure is through. You brought insight in the foundation of running a successful personal branding photography business."
During the program, I will select a recent session of mine and screen record my culling and editing process from beginning to end.

"One of my biggest struggles was around social media: how do I stand out? What should I post? What type of language should I use? I struggled to find my voice and create my own unique content.
This left me feeling frustrated, stressed and I had little to no confidence.
Because of this, I wasn't consistent on social media. I didn't have a real plan or strategy in place which made it all seem more overwhelming.
I shied away from working with another photographer because I'll be honest, nearly all of the photographers I met were egotistical and judgmental. But, after working with several business coaches outside the photography industry, they couldn't help me with things like workflows and even their marketing tips were too broad.
From day one Kimberly came across as not only a wealth of knowledge but someone I could make stupid jokes with or geek out about stuff with. Plus it was clear she had her $h!t together and I was still struggling with systems and marketing.
While working together, Kimberly helped me get more organized and tweak my systems so they work better. She helped me find my voice, and more importantly, she helped me become more confident in my marketing and content creation. Kimberly also helped me become more organized so it is now fun rather than stressful and overwhelming.
Most impact-fully, she helped me with boundaries, growth and goals. I knew I needed all of these things, but she helped me create and stick to them. How the heck did I manage before having all of this? Things run smoother now.
What I love most is that Kimberly helped me let go of the things that were holding me back."
