I never intended to run a full time photography business.
I bought a camera so that I could take great photos of my kids.
Boy, was I surprised when I realized that a fancy camera didn't mean better photos. With the help of online courses, I learned everything I needed to know to run a successful business. 
I went from spending hours in photoshop trying to fix my in camera mistakes, to getting images I loved straight out of camera. I can help you to do the same.

You don't have to do it alone.
I can help.

what is a mentorship

the details

Contact me and let me know you are interested.

We will set up a time to meet and discuss your needs.

Your initial meeting will take about 30 minutes.

Step one

Once we have decided which package you would benefit the most from, it's your job to organize your shoot details.

You'll need to decide on location and organize models. Most facebook buy sell groups are great places to advertise model calls.

step two

We will schedule the date and time for your shoot(s)
During the shoot, I will work with you on posing, finding great light and camera settings.

While posing clients, I will explain to you WHY I am posing the way I am.
While we are finding great light, I will show you how to do it yourself.

step three

After the session, we will set up a time for me to assist you with editing your images.

Each mentor session includes 60 minutes of editing time with, where I will walk you through basic lightroom skills to enhance your images, without the use of presets.

step four

After you have presented your images to your clients, the images are yours to do with as you please.

After we have completed our sessions together, you can schedule one more meeting with me to go over any questions you may have. This meeting is up to 60 minutes in length
