Do you want to feel more in control of your business, make enough money to support your family, and love every day of working for yourself?? Do you want to grow FASTER but also grow WISELY? 🙋🏼‍♀️

Investing in education is so necessary when building a  sustainable business.

One-on-one mentorship is the next level of photography education. If you want accountability, personalized advice, and someone who understands, I'd love to be that for you!

(hi, it's me)

I started photographing high school seniors 14 years ago. In 2012, I photographed my first wedding, and I never stopped!

I’ve always been interested in photography, but I couldn’t have predicted how much I would love this job. It’s fulfilling, it gives me tons of freedom in my schedule, and it provides a great income. My sales have been well over 100K for the past 4 years.

Whether you’re feeling stuck and unmotivated or excited to continue growing your business, mentoring is a great way to learn from someone who’s an already gone through it.


I love mentoring

I've been growing my business for years. So many YEARS. Throughout most of that time, I felt like I just wasn't growing fast enough. Looking at Instagram, new photographers popped up daily, and they seemed to have 5,000 followers on day one.

The longer I've been in this industry, and the more photographers I've talked to, the more I realize that public facing "success" doesn't always translate to paid clients, dream weddings, or happiness.

I think the ideal mentor is someone who’s a few steps ahead of you, but not so far removed from your circumstances that they don’t remember the details of the daily wins and losses.

Everyone’s path is different, and everyone grows at a different rate, but if you want to speed up your success and learn from my experiences, let’s do this!
