Meredith Gradle felt like she was losing control of her growing portrait photography business. Keeping clients happy and the bills paid was getting more and more complex. Frustrated that most studio management software didn’t work for a small business like hers, she decided to create her own. The result is Iris, a studio management app built specifically to help small business photographers like you bring balance back to their life.
