Kira Whitney Photography
I cannot say enough good things about Kira! I've known her since high school, and she an absolute joy to be around. I've been hiring her for all of my photography needs since 2011. She does all of my brand/lifestyle photo sessions — so if you love the photos you're seeing on my website, she's your girl! Kira is based in Colorado but regularly travels to Arkansas and Missouri.
I actually met Casey through her husband (Ben Watson, founder of Fiscal Fluency). While we were working on Ben's website, I was blown away by the quality of the copy he was providing. Turns out, he had his wife to thank! She's a wonderful copywriter and has actually written several guest posts for Ember & Co over the years:
- 5 Tips for Writing Effective Website Copy
- Lessons Learned: Social Media for Small Businesses
- Business Slow? Here are 4 Ways to Improve your Marketing
One thing I love about Casey is that she's familiar with the Storybrand framework. This enables her to write copy that tells a story and frames the reader as the hero of the story — which captivates their attention and builds trust quickly.
SEO (Search Engine Optimization)
When I first went full-time with my design business SocialSEO hired me to help them with their in-house design needs. I got to know several team members there and grew to respect their integrity, drive, and passion for SEO. I've referred several clients their way over the years. It can be tough to find reliable SEO firms, but I would say that SocialSEO's awards and reputation speak volumes. They are consistently ranked as a top Digital Marketing Firm by UpCity.
Be Brilliant with Linsi Brownson
Linsi is an absolute gem. We've been collaborating for many years and I always look forward to it. Linsi has over 12 years of experience as a brand strategist, creative director, and coach. She has worked with hundreds of small business owners to align their business with the lifestyle they want to have through a combination of mindset, business strategy, leadership, operations, sales, branding, and marketing.
I was introduced to Jordan and her husband by Kira when they were looking for a designer to bring their Daily Kairos journal to life. Since then, we've worked on countless projects together and I've come to deeply admire the mindfulness that they approach their business with.
Kira is coached by Jordan and she is constantly singing her praises. If you're Christian, you'll love her faith-based approach to business. Her heart beats for empowering women to build impactful businesses and income - without sacrificing what matters most.
Fiscal Fluency with Ben Watson
I have known Ben since high school and I have always valued his steady, high-integrity, approachable demeanor. I've personally hired him for financial coaching, and as a CPA for Ember & Co.
He has a background in teaching, mentorship, and social work, but he became a CPA specifically to help small business owners take control of their money and redirect their resources toward their goals.
Branding & Design
Morgan Specht of Specht & Co
I have collaborated with Morgan several times over the last few years. She is SUCH a joy — reliable, creative, and super organized. I absolutely adore her approach. Morgan loves to help her clients connect with their ideal audience and grow their business through thoughtful, personalized branding and web design that showcases who they are in a way that feels totally authentic and share-worthy.
