Solopreneur Spotlight: Krystal McCrary
The Photography Solopreneur. The bond between a father and daughter is nothing short of that in-explainable kind of special. Conversations, laughs, and gentle hugs make these relationships blissful and are partly the driving force behind Daddy’s Boo Portraits. Krystal McCrary started her photography business with her father’s memory heavy on heart. Sharing her story (and his) through photography, videos and soulful music on her website, www.daddysboo.com, puts her brand in a space of its own; a space that families or those missing a loved one can call their own.
Cherish your memories with Daddy’s Boo. We believe that every photo tells a story that needs to be cherished so it never fades away. Thru portrait, photo & collage Daddy’s Boo’s creativity and imagination makes every memory extra special.
Krystal shares a bit of what it takes to keep Daddy’s Boo Portraits fresh, starting with her love in the Lord. Read more in her Solopreneur Spotlight below.
What’s the one thing you cannot live without?
The Lord, I’m nothing without him.
How have your relationships (or friendships) changed since becoming a solopreneur?
With helping so many people, I gained new friendships. When folks open up & share their stories with me about a project we really create a bond.
Tell us about your typical work day.
I receive requests to save people’s old photos. Either by drawing portraits or doing photo restorations and retouches. During the consultation I get to hear the story behind the photos. I love using my creativity to make someone’s memories extra special. On one project, my client told me that this was the only picture that he had of his dad. It was a tiny 1940’s black & white photo. The part that touched my heart the most was when he said I just want to be able to see his dad’s face again. It’s blessing to do what I love & help people at the same time.
What are your most productive work hours?
Basically whenever my creative juices start flowing. That is usually all day!
What is your biggest challenge as a solopreneur?
A lot of times I get caught up in trying to out create myself. I challenge myself too much sometimes. I want my clients to be overjoyed and overly satisfied when they come to me.
If you were given $5k, what would you do with the money?
A Cintique Tablet would be my dream come true on its own. A new Apple laptop. Advertising. I’d also find some new ways to create Thank You gifts for my clients.
What is the biggest/best investment you made toward your brand/blog?
My website. It was an important way for me to share my story with people. I created Daddy’s Boo Portraits in honor of my late Dad. The website tells me and my dad’s story thru art, photo, music & video. I wanted folks to know my feelings and where I’m coming from so we have something in common.
