Working With Abbey

There was so much that I was going through before taking Abbey’s workshop. I felt like I wasn’t getting the right kind of momentum with my business. I took on EVERYTHING. I had a lack of inspiration and huge doubts in my ability to be a creative business owner. I put my personal life on […]

I struggled with time management and taking too long to do business related things. I had no plan for my business and felt like it was all over the place. My family was being put on the back burner so I had enough time to do all my work. Teach me your ways. Abbey seemed […]

Before attending the workshop I was a struggling photographer. I was one of those people who said, “I do photography… like on the side, and I love it!” But afterwards and since then, I proudly tell people, “I’m a professional photographer!” and I live that way! I still work part time while in school but […]

I used to be so much more scattered and forgetful. My biggest frustration prior to meeting Abbey was that I would have post it notes everywhere and still forget things. I was a disorganized mess and I felt like I never had time for my kids which was part of the core reasons I started […]

Chelsea Peterson

I needed direction to make my goals a reality. I was shooting just about everything, but trying to start specializing in weddings which is what  I was really wanting to specialize in. I had done multiple inspirational shoots to help boost my brand and just kept thinking it would be taking off soon, but it […]

Before the workshop with Abbey, I was searching for more specific advice from someone who understood my local market and demographic. I was in my second year of shooting weddings and I had invested a lot of money into my photography education already. But truth be told, most of the larger workshops I had attended […]

I can't believe how much our team has grown this year, and we are now ready to grow again! @akstudiodesign is looking to hire a part time office manager and also to hire a part-time post-processing person. Or one person could do both jobs! 
The job is great pay with lots of room for bonuses and growth. Eventually both positions will be full time. No photography experience needed. Lightroom experience would be a bonus, but not required. Must be willing to travel to Bountiful, UT.

If you are interested in more details, please email me at abbey@abbeykyhl.com.

Yes I did take this picture so it looks like Tripps picking his nose 😂😂😂 there are cute ones too, but does anyone really care about those when there's this. #backtoschool
Sent the brothers off to school today with a kiss and a wave...then went in and cried to herself for twenty minutes because she can't go. #backtoschool #heartbrokensister #missivyardella #diapergirl
To LOVE a person, is to see all their magic and to remind them of it when they have forgotten | Carter Family Session
Hold my hand and I will go anywhere with you | Bladen Family Session
Ten years ago this boy made me a momma. I had never wanted anything more or waited for anything longer than we did for him. I always tell him I loved him first (of the kids of course) and have loved him longest. I can't believe he is turning 10. How did that happen? I am so proud of the boy he is and the person he is growing up to be. One of his teachers told me that they were making a book and she had all the kids in the class list their best friends and she said every single kid in the class listed him. He is kind to everyone and that makes my momma heart burst. He is one of the smartest people I know and he keeps us on our feet. He is the most wonderful big brother and is always setting the example for the others on how to treat each other. I don't know how Ivy will ever find a good enough husband because of how much he loves her and how great he is to her. He cried when we told him he was having a sister because he didn't want to play princesses and tea party, and yet he still does everyday to make her happy. Tripp idolizes him and I hope that never ends. It's bittersweet to think that today he is more than half way through childhood, but I am so incredibly grateful for all he has been to me and our family these last ten years...Happy Birthday J-man!
Mini-session booking is in full swing! Don't wait to grab your spot. I am now going to be offering mini-sessions every Tuesday. Each week I have set aside some time to shoot a handful of sessions. And for accommodating me and my schedule you are getting them at an amazing price! We already have the first handful of locations:

August 30th - White Studio 
September 6th - Memory Grove 
September 13th - Garden Park Ward 
September 20th - Silver Lake 
September 27th - Thanksgiving Point

These are all locations that have great light all day long so the session will all be lovely no matter what time your shoot is at! They can be for newborn, maternity, family, extended family, headshots, commercial, fashion, just about any kind of portrait session! Also for all my Southern Utah friends, I am considering making a trip down there if enough of you are interested! 
The cost is $200.00 and each session comes with 20 images. Let me know if you are interested in booking. Space is limited so snag your spot before its gone. And any of the locations that have a shooting fee (like Thanksgiving Point) is already covered. 
I will still be shooting my regular portrait sessions and a handful of weddings, but this is a great opportunity for those of you who need something a little bit more budget friendly.

Also please EMAIL ME about availability. Keeping up with texts, tweets, messages, and comments just gets a little bit overwhelming! Thanks!
