At Stay Open, Photographer and Owner, Kamryn Cusumano’s mission is to spread female empowerment and allow others to embrace their true authentic selves.
Offering photography and digital marketing services, Stay Open is a brand that helps professionals, businesses and entrepreneurs with branding photography and digital marketing services.
“In 2019 I turned my parent’s basement into a photo studio and started booking clients,” she shares. “Looking back I had such a ridiculous set up, but I made it work somehow. These days, I’ve upgraded from the basement to a studio space which is where I am operating out of now.”
While stating Stay Open is a personal mantra of hers, Cusumano explains she is still unpacking the meaning.
“I created it so I could be myself for a living,” she says. “I offer services to help others along their paths to achieving their dreams, discover their inner power, and align closer with the person they were meant to be.”
Cusumano shares that she always wanted to be an artist, but didn’t picture photography to be the medium.
“When I was studying journalism, we were taught how to use our DSLR cameras and I remember getting really great feedback from my images,” she says. “In the summer, I started practicing and taking friends out for photoshoots, and after sharing my work I began booking clients. It happened very fast.”
Describing herself as guided, filled with purpose and faith, Cusumano says that we all have a calling and if we are brave enough to answer the call, we can have it.
“I am so grateful and blessed to be able to do this work and have such incredible clients who make what I do so meaningful. I am empowered by my amazing clients who show me what vulnerability looks like every time they step in front of my camera.”
