You're up all night dreaming, spending every spare hour working to make your plans a reality. Owning a business is one of the most rewarding, exhilarating and exhausting things I can think of. Starting a business, even more so. But we are human and we weren't made to do anything alone.

No one gets to the top without help. And the people that get to the top quickly, do it with more help than all the rest.

I'm here to help you reach the next step with ease and confidence! I've been where you are, struggling to know where to start and overwhelmed at the steps ahead of me. I'll help guide you through the sticky beginning so you can spend time building the business of your dreams!

You deserve to have a business that serves both your clients and your life.

How to Get Started:



- 1 hour of pre-session Q&A
- a guided 30 minute session
- 1 hour of hands on editing

What's Included:

When you're just starting out in photography, it can be a bit overwhelming. From marketing yourself to learning how to create a killer client experience, all while being an expert editor and social media manager, it can be hard to know where to start. I fully understand that and I can help! 

We start off with a 1 hour Q&A session where we'll go over all of your business questions before we head out for a 30 minute photoshoot. You’ll create some amazing content for your portfolio and learn all my posing prompts for a more candid style

Finally, we'll sit down for 1 hour of editing after the shoot. I will teach you my entire post session workflow in Lightroom and help you to create a preset that will work universally on your photos to create the consistent look you’re after.

How to Get Started:



- A one hour zoom call where we'll target your biggest pain points so you can walk away from the call inspired.

What's Included:

Are you feeling stuck in a certain part of your business? I get that, I've been there before! Sometimes we need a helping hand to brainstorm ideas, receive advice from those who have been there before us and spark new ideas and passion.

This zoom coaching call is 60 minutes dedicated just for you and we'll work through your biggest struggles and I'll offer advice that you can take and implement right away for the results you're looking for! 

Before your call I will send over a questionnaire that will tell me exactly where you're struggling most and which places you're most comfortable. I'll brainstorm some ideas before your call so we can make the most of our time together and go over as many possible solutions as possible! If you feel like you'll need more time, you can add on an additional 30 minutes to our call for $97.

How to Get Started:



- a 20 minute recording of feedback on your website and Instagram page 

What's Included:

Two of the most important marketing strategies you can invest your time into are your website and Instagram! In a 15 minute recorded video, I’ll go over ways to strengthen your online presence to book more clients. You'll get feedback that you can start implementing right away and most of it won't cost you a dime!

I will cover your Instagram bio, posts, captions, reels and any tips to help you create better engagement on social media. On your website, I’ll cover which images should stay or go for better impact, what info you should have on each page and things you can add to encourage people to inquire. If you don’t yet have a website, I’ll send you resources and steps to create one and tips for what to include!

Your website and Instagram make for an incredibly powerful duo if you use them both to their full potential!
