I'm Camille Lindquist.
Small-town Idaho photographer, mommy, and educator with big dreams. Obsessed with: donuts, travel, books, and sci-fi.
I didn’t always have this business: the clients and students, the courses, the sales, the thousands of downloads…
In truth, just a few years ago you could’ve found me wearing yoga pants and t-shirts, exhausted as I finished up another $100 photography session and then edited images til 2 am before getting up at 6 with my baby (or 5, let’s be real).
I thought I’d landed my dream job, the creative outlet that would take us out of the teacher-family poverty line, but my dream had turned into a low-paying over-worked nightmare.
At the age of 25, I bought a $500 camera with our tax refunds. (when you’re a family of 5 living on 30k a year, you get a good chunk of change back at tax time!)
I didn’t know then how much my world would change... that camera would be my one-way ticket out of poverty and fear. That single investment led me to the empire I’m running today.
Today you can find me juggling 2 businesses while living my dream life in the Boise, Idaho area - surrounded by my family, just how I like it.
I’m probably sipping herbal tea with classical music playing in the background and dreaming of ways I can help other photographers and small businesses grow profitable, driven, unique businesses that allow them to make more (live more) and work less.
Do you want to know what gets me really fired up?
Making people feel, own, and celebrate their potential to do whatever it is they set their minds to. If I can be that whisper (ok sometimes I shout) in your life that says: “you’ve got this” while the rest of the world is telling you you’re crazy… then I’ll consider myself a success.
When people assume I run Uprooted Life as a hobby, I tell them I’m the CEO of a rapidly exploding online empire.
My favorite title... despite the mountains of drama in our life.
Married to my highschool sweetheart since 2006.
I love the deep connections I get with my coaching clients, whether they’re photographers or another kind of small business.
The title that changed our family's life, and taught me just how much your dreams can grow if you will just wear the dang business hat.
