"Every business owner wants to increase their income, right? I started implementing Kara’s strategies in the Fall of 2020, and as of this spring I’ve already had 10k more in sales than I did in 2020. Working with Kara has given me the confidence to take on more clients without feeling overwhelmed. The processes and procedures that she put in place set me up for the new year, and that first quarter was the biggest quarter yet! The revenue increase was definitely worth investing in a business coach."
"If you’re a photographer and you’re interested in doing this for a living long-term, I would highly recommend hiring a business coach. The trick is hiring a coach that not only knows business, but knows your trade. That’s why I’m so grateful for Kara Hubbard and TOGRAFY. Her photography experience made me feel good about making the commitment because it was clear to me that she knew her stuff. I would 100% hire Kara again, and I plan to reconnect with her through my journey to maintain a successful business."
"Hiring Kara and the TOGRAFY team to help me streamline and grow my business was a game changer. It was so reassuring working with someone who has been there and knows the ins and outs of the photography world. I didn’t have to explain anything to her, she just knew! I would work with her again in a heartbeat."
"The biggest thing that Kara helped me to accomplish was establishing myself within the Austin photography market. When I first moved, I felt a bit lost. I had lived in Maui for so long that networking came naturally to me, but Austin was an entirely different story. I didn’t know anyone! With Kara’s help and customized strategies, I was able to redefine myself as an Austin photographer. With Kara’s networking strategy, I hit the ground running in Austin. I made friends with other local photographers, and I made myself available as a second shooter, which really helped me to break into the Austin wedding photography scene. From there, Kara and I were able to determine a clear path for my photography business going forward. I knew I wanted to exit the large wedding scene and pivot to maternity photo sessions and elopements, so Kara helped me establish a clear a timeline and gave me actionable steps to make it happen. Now, I have a really clear idea of where I stand in the Austin photography market. The other HUGE benefit of hiring Kara was her mini-session expertise. I had no idea that mini-sessions could be so profitable before I started working with her, and she completely opened my eyes to how low I was pricing myself. Not only did she rework my pricing, but her mini-session workflow implementation in HoneyBook was also extremely beneficial for me. Now, when I want to run a mini-session, I don’t have to spend weeks planning and building, everything is there and ready to go! Automation is key, and Kara’s mini-session workflows are pure gold."

"If you're looking to grow your photography business, hire Kara. Simply put, she is AMAZING. Before Kara, I was at a place with my business where I wanted to grow, but I was getting nowhere with my own strategies. Kara has been an invaluable resource for the direction of my photography. She saw the big picture and had a clear path to getting me where I wanted to be. She helped me define my brand and bring clarity to my vision. She implemented email workflows that increased client retention and relations and cut down on my time spent managing the back end of my business! Kara pushed me outside of my comfort zone, knowing my capabilities better than I did. After hiring Kara, my business saw a 650% growth in the FIRST YEAR! She brings the unique combination of being a photographer AND business manager, and completely understands the industry. She’s so easy to work with, extremely organized, detail oriented, and just overall incredible at what she does. Take the leap and hire Kara, you will not be disappointed!"

"Thanks to Kara, I realized I have a really specific type of ideal client. She gave me motivation to keep working. She also gave me positive and constructive changes to make within my business. I feel like I’m finally charging what I’m worth and working with my ideal clients. Implementing Kara’s changes will allow me to focus on my current clients instead of constantly trying to book more clients in order to make ends meet. I have more ideal clients that are willing to pay me for my services rather than packing my schedule. I chose to work with Kara because of her photography background and her ability to connect with people--- she’s just there for you and she has so many resources. She makes herself available for you anytime, even after you’re finished working with her. She has a lot of different offers and options for photographers, and you can absolutely tell she's passionate and her heart is really in it, which is a really important quality for a business coach to have."
