Taryn L. McCracken's Profile

About

My name is Taryn. I have been married since 2003. We live in Michigan and have 4 small kids. My oldest was born in 2006, the twins (b/g) were born in 2008 and the baby born in April 2011.

Before kids, I completed college for my Associates Degree in Accounting. I worked in bookkeeping and finance for a few years. After the birth of our first son, we decided it was best for me to stay home. I still felt I should contribute to the finances, so I decided to start a company from the home. At first, we were only doing the photo engraved jewelry. A year later, we purchased our laser engraver and really expanded the business (still ran from the home). After the twins were born, I was out of business for a while so I could get the hang of things and I was back in business in a few months. In 2010, we purchased a vinyl cutter so we are not only personalizing gifts, but your home, office and boutique as well…

I figured with four kids, a husband and multiple companies, I wasn't busy enough at home. So, I'm also a photography student at New York Institute of Photography. My goal for 2012 is to be able to receive my certificate from NYIP, open a small studio (that my husband is currently building) to begin doing portraiture and combine photography with PictureIt Creations. That way each company can compliment each other. Photography also helps me since I am also photographing my own products for my online shops and I would also like to sell my photography work individually as well.
