An early start to executive portraits and branded magazine covers!

It's definitely been a busy start to the year! As a small business owner, I try to focus on my own branding and marketing plans at the beginning of the year when I usually have more downtown... However, the start of this year as been SUPER busy! I've spent the last few months creating headshot and branding photos for a number of awesome local businesses. Some you'll see throughout this year in Marketplace Magazine (you can see the team behind the magazine in this past blog post).

Check out the businesses I've started my year with so far:

Caitlyn | Cheerful Air Balloon

Caitlyn Friedrich created Cheerful Air Balloon Co. November of 2023 and after we met for her headshot portraits (at Pretty Little Things) our paths have crossed everywhere, which I love! She even put together our balloon arch for our Superbowl party! If you don't know Caitlyn, you should..... She's a Boonville, MO native and stayed here to raise her family. She married her childhood best friend in 2017 and they have an energetic 5 year old boy and a sweet 2 year old girl. They are happy to be adding another little girl to the mix in June 2024! Her experience and creative talent comes from her role in the event/wedding industry. She loves connecting with people and helping them bring their event to life! You can check out some of Caitlyn's work on her Instagram!

Grizzly Bear Lawn Care

Grizzly Bear Lawn Care provides lawn care, landscaping, hardscaping, irrigation, and snow removal in Columbia, MO, and the surrounding areas. And these guys graced the COVER of Marketplace magazine just last month. It may be just greening up around here but the guys are busy making your yards and landscaping beautiful.

North Star Real Estate

I know you've heard of Adam & Billy, they're everywhere and I've gotten to work with them a number of times (and get to meet more of their team for a branding session TODAY!). North Star is owned by Billy Dexheimer and Adam Curtis. Billy is a standout figure in the real estate world, not only for his exceptional skills as a Realtor, owner, and broker but also for his engaging personality and light-hearted approach that makes every transaction feel less stressful. As the 2024 President-Elect of the Board of Realtors and a consistent top agent for nearly a decade, Billy's professional achievements speak volumes about his dedication to his craft and his clients.

Adam Curtis stands out in the real estate community for his genuine enthusiasm for the field and his dedication to delivering exceptional service to his clients. As an established realtor, business owner, and broker, Adam's reputation for integrity, expertise, and a client-centric approach is well-known. His strategic insights and leadership abilities have also led him to serve on the Board of Directors, where he plays a significant role in guiding the real estate industry's direction within his region.
