Meet Lauren Grijalva of Calista Rain Photography in Johns Creek

Thanks for sharing your story with us Lauren. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
I have had an interest in photography for as long as I can remember. I’ve always been intrigued by beautiful photos and tried to create beautiful images myself! Through the years people would tell me I had an eye for photography and mention they saw something special in me. I finally took that to heart and started my photography business in January of this year!

Has it been a smooth road?
Starting a business has had its challenges! I’ve had to become really organized, figure out scheduling, invoicing, etc… things I didn’t originally consider when just thinking I wanted to take beautiful pictures of people!! There are so many great resources on the Internet though. I have learned so much this past year! I’m finally getting into a groove with everything and my workflow is becoming second nature. I have a passion for people and love capturing special moments in time for them to look back on and remember.

So let’s switch gears a bit and go into the Calista Rain Photography story. Tell us more about the business.
I am a portrait photographer. I love taking pictures of faces! I specialize in headshots, family and individual portraits, maternity portraits, children and engagement photos. One thing that sets me apart is my dedication to customer satisfaction, as well as my quick turnaround time. I guarantee that you will be more than satisfied with your portraits or I will reshoot for free! So far I’ve never had any complaints! I also get so excited about editing and delivering the photos I take… I start editing them as soon as I walk in the door! I guarantee a one-week turnaround time but it is usually 24 to 48 hours. People really appreciate getting the photos so quickly!

So, what’s next? Any big plans?
In the next few years, I see my client base growing even more. Each month it has grown and I absolutely love meeting new people and forming lasting relationships with my clients!
