Helping other women grow into their passion and reach their fullest potential makes my heart SING. ​I am a firm believer in that we should never stop learning, especially as small businesses and entrepreneurs! 

When I started off on this journey of becoming a photographer, business owner, and entrepreneur, I spent hours upon hours trying to navigate it all myself. I wished I would have had the resources to walk me through everything I needed to do, step by step.

 That's why I have made it my mission to help other women stepping into their dreams through mentorships, online resources, and group workshops!

mini mentorship

a 90 minute virtual meeting to discuss the things you are looking to grow into! Choose 2-3 topics from business practices, camera settings + lighting, posing + client interaction, editing in Lightroom, branding, the client experience, or any specific topic you are struggling with. I can't wait to virtually hang out with you over a cup of coffee or tea and help you step into these fun topics with confidence!

the mentorship experience

Each mentee will receive a digital workbook and topics reviewed will include business practices, branding, workflow, shooting in manual, the client experience, and much more! We'll lean into the particular areas you are looking to expand on and have the absolute best time together!
