Being a photographer is so fun and extremely rewarding! But it’s not always been easy… I’ve been a photographer for 9 years, and in that time I’ve learned so much, changed my work ethic and shooting & editing style to fit the aesthetic I love, and to create a sustainable and reputable brand and attract the right clients. I have changed my business name once (and logo half a dozen times), attended workshops and taken courses, and have had personal experiences that have given me insight, tips and tricks that I’m excited to share!

When I first started photography - I didn’t know anyone. When I say I’m “self-taught” I mean I didn’t have anyone that personally took me under their wing or helped me learn the ropes. I invested in my education, learned all I could for free until I could afford workshops and enroll in online classes, and I did SO many free shoots to find my niche and my personal style, and build my portfolio. And now - with a sustainable & successful business, and a desire to help other photographers that want to succeed, I’m offering these sessions for beginners to invest in their business.

There’s no fast-track… No secret thing that you will learn that will get you where you want to go. But this is a jumpstart.
A personal kick in the pants to get going in the right direction, and give you insight & training that will save you time, money, late-night tears & frustrations, and avoid the “live and learn” where it’s not necessary!

That’s why I offer these - so you can avoid the unnecessary mistakes that so many new photographers make!

Whether you’re just starting out and want to learn how to make this into a sustainable & profitable business, you are branching into a new area of photography or need help with natural posing and giving direction (giving you confidence in your photo sessions), want help getting the look you want in your images, or if you’re in an inspirational slump and need some encouragement and excitement to get back on track, the following mentor sessions are for you.
