I'm In...
The Seward County Chamber & Development Partnership is kicking off a new campaign called "I'm In" that's designed to introduce you to your local merchants, service providers, and retailers in Seward County. Say hello to Kaleigh Mueller from Kaleigh Mueller Photo/Video/Design.

What year were you founded?

What is most important for potential customers to know about your business?
As a creative entrepreneur, for the past several years, I've been told to "pick one thing and just do it well." But to that, I say "no thanks." I believe in embracing the mind's full capacity for creativity and exercising within many facets. I have a passion for photography, videography, and graphic design. Being able to do all three is what keeps things interesting and allows me to be of service in different areas. Whether you're looking to tell the story of your small business, your wedding day, or life after the wedding; I would love to help you write it.

Why are you in Seward? What makes it special to you?
Born and raised in Seward - I've chosen to stay here because I see more value in the slower pace of life and not the hustle and bustle of a bigger city. For me, living in Seward has given me the chance to slow down and live in the present. I think many times people mistake small towns with having nothing to do - but I see it as a thrilling challenge of finding things to do. If you keep an open mind and are up for a little adventure, there really is so much to do. Through my business, my goal is to unveil unique people and places that often go overlooked.
