Some people think that change is hard. No way! Change allows for new and better!
I remember reading a quote that went something like this “I would rather wear-out than rust-out” and in addition to that, trying to keep everything the same tends to stop creativity. Effective October 15, Keiser Photography will no longer be located in the studio at 128 Main Street. The building has been sold and we will be doing all our sessions by appointment and “on-location” and just as we have for the past 5 years, we will provide online ordering through email and our website and then delivery of your order to your home. Tracey will still be helping and doing all the crazy behind the scenes work. We are excited to create new portraits for our clients at some of the more interesting areas around Cincinnati. I am confident you’ll continue to see the highest level of excellence you have come to expect from us and most likely you will enjoy the new images that we will create.
You can still reach us at the same phone number or email anytime.
It will be interesting to see what will take our place at 128 Main Street. I wonder if they will leave the ivy on the side of the building…….. We have been photographing outdoors and at various location for years, which meant that we were still paying all the utilities and expenses required to operate the studio even when the photographs were somewhere else.
All things have changed since I opened the doors in 1984, we have transitioned and grown to become one of photography’s success stories. Our belief is that great photography and great images live on forever. I am proud of the friendships that we have “developed”, the services that we provide for Indian Hill, Mariemont and Milford. I am proud of what we have accomplished and I am proud of all the people who have worked with us over the past 30 years. This is a great place to say thanks to my mother, Jean. Many of you still ask about her. Her happy smiling face greeted everyone that came in as she worked side-by-side with me for 20 years and has since retired to the Atlanta area.
This decision to give up the studio space and not retire from photography just makes sense. I still have a lot I can share and the same energy and enthusiasm to create dynamic portraits and athletic images in the future.
I am also looking forward to the new challenges this change brings. As you may know, Angie and I have a wonderful 5 year old who started creating paper dresses and has caught some Instagram fame with almost 500,000 followers ( http://www.fashionbymayhem.com/ ). After 7 trips to New York in the past year including 2 for Fashion Week and a 9 piece clothing line with J.Crew, the future looks very exciting.
Thanks to all who have cheered us on and supported our work in the photography industry.
Being creative makes life exciting!
Thanks Angie and Keith Keiser
