That's right. I found the best kept secret in the photography industry: BRAND PHOTOGRAPHY. Five years ago, I retired from wedding photographer and dove into brand photography full time. It was just me, my camera, my kids and a little window light in my front room. I didn't have a studio or a ton of props, but a paper roll and a few stools landed me a dozen consistent clients. And that's all it took to start living my dream life.
GET STARTED ON YOUR JOURNEY
Missing soccer games, family parties, and being SO tired after shooting weddings that I had to just lie around the rest of the weekend instead of being with my family.
TAKE ME TO THE COURSE
Constantly searching for new clients at bridal fairs, bride meetings, marketing on all platforms, meeting with local vendors, etc. Only to start again when they were married.
Making great money during busy season and scraping by during slow season, leaving my family stressed for about half of the year.
Feeling like brand photography was out of reach because I didn't have a studio or thousands of dollars of equipment.
When I started Kylee Ann Photography over a decade ago, I was shooting everything from weddings to families to births. After years of investing, learning and hustling nights and weekends, I was making a great profit but at the expense of my family. And that didn't sit well with me.
I realized I was starting to miss my kid's soccer games and nights with my family. Something had to change. I didn't want to give up the creative outlet, connection with the community or paychecks, but I needed something that could work with my growing kid's schedules. Brand photography fell in my lap like a gift from God.
My business quickly went from nights and weekends, to 10-2 four days a week for a consistent, amazing paychecks (5 figures) monthly...even in the slow season.
After I niched into commercial photography:
- I filled up my calendar monthly with repeating clients instead of constantly having to market for new business
- I made 4 then 5 figures every month, even during slow season
- I stopped missing soccer games, and kept my work hours within my big kid's school schedules
I am passionate about teaching photographers how find their niche in small brand photography and become profitable photographers without giving up their dream lifestyles.

wow wow WOW!!! Kylee Ann Maughan I just finished the first section of your brand photography course, and I'm floored. So thorough and informative. I'm fresh out of a workshop with another photographer about commercial photography, and I am sad I didn't get to this first. I could have saved a whole lot of money! 😂
I'm sure I have questions, but I am buzzing from how inspired and equipped I feel to start reaching out to brands, and booking more shoots!
THANK YOU!!! You're doing such an amazing service, and I'm so excited to dive in further in the morning!
I fell in love with brand photography because my baby was asked to model for a couple of companies with a local photographer.
I shot my first brand within 2 weeks of taking the course, and have since worked with 60+ brands! Doing what I love, on my own time, in my own way, mostly from home is a huge blessing! Kylee's course has changed a piece of my life! It can change a huge piece of yours too!
If you've been interested in working from home brand photography is a GREAT place to start!
You're the best! I had no photography experience, but wanted to give it a go, took your class, & I'm on my third paid shoot in a matter of weeks! I'm loving doing this while being a stay at home mom! It's so flexible! THANK YOU!! - Madyson
Found a toy in a gas station, pitched the brand and now I'll be doing their catalog pictures four times a year!!
I will invest in you 1 million times over. Honestly wouldn’t be where I am today without you. I feel like I just needed someone who believed in me. - because I didn’t believe in me yet. You’ve helped me believe in me and so much more. Actually magic you are Kylee!! -Grace
This week was kind of mind blowing for me. I’m still shocked. I booked two clients with pretty big packages, delivered an existing client’s gallery last mind AND got the packages from one client today. - Brittney
I signed my first contract client!!! They want to work with me long term :O I only have 387 followers on Instagram. You don’t need a ton of followers! What sold these guys was my website and a good trial run. - S
I booked a new client today and had another signed on for another session. But more than that today I am appreciating my journey in my business. I used to feel bad charging $35 for a session now I charge my worth and I love that mindset shift for me. -Brianna

"I’m super excited! I’ve really been pushing to try and get into brands this year since my little girl will start school later this year and I want to be able to be home more weekends. And today I was able to book 5 brands with subscription packages and I’m talking to￼ 4 more businesses about subscriptions!!"
A few weeks later...
"I have nine different paid commercial shoots booked/done since the course."
"Holy moly, Kylee Ann Maughan! I'm not even half way done with the course and I'm blown away with how thorough and well thought out it is! I've taken another commercial photography course and was left with so many questions afterward and I felt that it was not worth what I invested. But this - this is amazing! I'm pumped up and feeling confident that I'm going to come out of this course with all the tools and knowledge I'll need to get my brand photography growing! Thank you for all the hard work, knowledge, and actionable items you packed into this!"

TAKE ME TO CHECK OUT
Signed my first brand after delivering her photos from a collaboration. I hadn’t even gotten around to my pitch. She just asked me what I charge and could I shoot more for her -Kalyn
I never have charged for products I always do it free for experience. And I just quoted 550 and she didn't even hesitate! I was shocked!- Sarah
This is probably super simple but even me reaching out to a brand took courage. I am thankful for the template because I just filled it in and pressed send. It's just a TFP but I'm super excited for it. I'm just glad for the boost to get over my anxiety of reaching out. - Britt
My huge win is that I finally signed up for “Becoming a Brand Photographer” and have listened to all the course material because it was so great that I couldn’t stop and now I’m SOOO excited to go back and start implementing the steps! - Chelsea
I've had 2 brands I have never heard of reach out!! AND it was after I almost doubled my prices!
I haven't even pitched to half my pitch sheet and I have 5 people in negotiations. I am proud of me and falling in love again with photography. am going to keep telling myself I got this. Thank you for your help. You want our success so we succeed. You are a teacher and a true friend to all. You are changing people's lives. I admire you so much. - Bri
I’m a mom building a business and community from the comfiest spot on my bed. What started as girl with a camera turned into a dream business. With God and my husband by my side, I have grown this one woman amateur show into the best team of girl bosses while simultaneously raising a family. Now I get to help hundreds of women (mainly moms) create thriving businesses, too.
I am on a mission empower women in their roles as business owners and mothers so they can be who they are called to be guilt-free and confidently creating joy and alignment in their lives.
