Resources - Catherine Guidry Photography


From the outside I'm technically a "one woman show" and although I don't have any full-time employees, I utilize a multitude of platforms that act as "workers" for my business. For example, I use Quickbooks to manage my accounting software, Dubsado to manage my clients, Planoly to plan and layout my instagram grid.

So, no I don't have a ton of employees but that is because I have found and learned thoroughly the tools that help run my business efficiently. I am so excited to share these programs and companies with you in hopes that they can help your business grow too!!

A Complete List of Resources that Help Run My Business


Because photography can be physically intensive, I always try to travel light! However, there is definitely a list of must haves that I bring with me to every wedding, portrait or commercial shoot! These are the exact versions/models that I use!

Girl, Stop Apologizing This book really spoke to me. It’s empowering and talks about a variety of issues and topics that so many women struggle with. I found Rachel to be unafraid to talk about the awkward and unsaid…and really dive into so many issues that need to be said out loud. After reading this […]

At the beginning of 2018 I decided that I was going to start a new challenge of reading 20 minutes a day. It’s such a perfect example of how you do something a little a day and before you know it…the entire book has been read! I’m not usually one to pick up a book […]

So my story on Instagram began when I was using the platform as what I thought was editing software ONLY. I would take silly photos and fun photos with intentions of using the app for editing. One photo I remember specifically was when I had cut my hair very short (no longer than 3 inches […]
