I'm in love with talking business strategy and helping other family photographers build better systems.

I started Colie James Photography in 2012, offering in-home family + newborn photography sessions. Within one year I offered my first online lifestyle family photography workshop. 

That isn't as crazy as it sounds, when you consider I was a professor for over a decade before I gave birth to my daughter. Six years ago I pulled the trigger on my first CRM and it was a game-changer. Now I help other creatives implement CRMs in their own businesses.

My mom is just happy I am still putting my degrees and college education to good use ;)


family filmmaker + photographer helping other family photographers streamline and grow their business.

I'm Colie! The girl obsessed with business strategy.
