Do you ever look back and wonder where the time has gone? Me too! It's incredible to look back and see how Pretty Presets has grown over the past 7 years. This business began out of my own desire to save time while editing sessions (especially weddings). Not only to save time, but also to work from home, so I spend more time with my family. As Pretty Presets grew, so did the vision. Not only did we want to save you time, but we also wanted to build a community to encourage our fellow entrepreneurs.
Here are some fun facts about how Pretty Presets has grown over the past 7 years.
- I, Laura Thomas, started Pretty Presets in 2010 in the corner of my living room as the sole employee. Today, I work with my business partner Karlen Kleinkopf. We're blessed daily to work with the incredible and encouraging team of 11 entrepreneurs from Maryland to Arizona.
- My business partner Karlen Kleinkopf and I worked together online for 5 years, before ever meeting in person just 2 years ago. Her oldest and my youngest are just 2 weeks apart and our husbands share the same birthday in April. It is truly a miracle to find someone to smoothly run a business together and have complete trust in one another.
- This year, Pretty Presets has now reached 165 countries around the world (there are only 31 left to reach!)
- The top 11 countries we work with are: United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Australia, India, Germany, Netherlands, Philippines, Indonesia, Brazil and Israel.
- Since starting Pretty Presets we also launched Pretty Forum (formerly Rock The Shot), Photo Deal Cafe and Pretty Actions (formerly Photographer Depot).
While time hasn't stopped, there is something that hasn't changed. It's our incredibly supportive, encouraging and loving community. If you've been here for any time, you'll know that this community is like a big family. We're professionals that love to see each other grow.
