BNI Presentation

Hello, it's my, Rosalind, Owner of Dekaios Designs LLC.

I am a photographer and artist in central WI. As a business owner I have chosen to become a member of BNI, it's an international organization where businesses meet weekly and help each other grow and network. There is only one professional of each category in the group, I am the photographer of our group. Each week at BNI we stand up and give a 60 second presentation about our business and what we offer. It's like we are informing our "sales team" what they can help promote. Along with that, one member has the privilege of sharing a 10 minute presentation. Tomorrow is my turn for this presentation. I am planning to use this blog post to assist me with that and as a result you can enjoy this as well!

Who is Dekaios Designs?

It’s me, Rosalind Kealiher, and some key helpers. Mainly my family who supports me regularly.

 My husband and son on my birthday! That’s the only way I can convince them for a family photo!

As well as a few assistants, particularly Stephanie who shoots weddings with me. Also my BNI Support team, and a few wonderful high schoolers who help me out on occasion. And most importantly it’s YOU, who choose to work with us, who celebrate the moments and have fun!

 Not sure who photographed this. But it's my entire family at my brother's wedding in 2009

Some change is in the air, my studio is now moving to a new space where we plan to also have an event hall!

In this space we are excited to have more room and be able to back up. Also to go outside and utilize so much of our beautiful downtown. We especially look forward to selling more of our items here, hosting events and celebrations, and getting our kitchen rented.

I love to take things with a story and add to it. These slides on this lamp belonged to my father, one way I can reflect is to admire my lamp, it is a combination of history and art.

What started the art journey for me as a child was lettering, drawing, and painting. I love to paint signs and windows. And to teach painting!

Dekaios Designs couldn't happen without the people we work with. Second shooters, photo assistants, painting assistants. Education- that wouldn't have happened without so much support from people who love us. Clients, especially Central Orthodontic Specialists who has been providing photography through Dekaios Designs for several years. People we have worked for and improved as a result, Michael's and Scene. Also, Rock N Roll Cafe, and other business'. The places we sell our art, Judah Studios, Agora, The Local, and Antique Up. Thank you so much for being a part of our business. Also, we are so thankful for the Rising Tide that encourages and connects fellow creatives, and of course, BNI who this presentation is for and has taught me to talk about this stuff in a much more fluid way.

Ways you can continue to support and encourage us...Think of us when you want to decorate! Be it with family photography of your own, or art. Also, keep us in mind when you hear of engagements. We can be photographers, provide fun bachelorette's, even bridal gifts and signage.  We are here, when you are looking for some fun entertainment like wine and canvas parties. And to capture the memories!

Thank you for reading!
