I know choosing a mentor is such a huge decision! So the fact that you are even considering me as your teacher is an incredible compliment so THANK YOU!

Investing your hard earned money back into your business can be scary but it can also catapult you into the next level of your career. Taking that risk is big but the payoff is even bigger! I know this because I was in your shoes not too long ago.

I picked up a camera 4 years ago in 2019. I took an in-person class for 6 weeks to learn how to use my camera and then I was off! I began investing right away in my education in online courses, mentorships, workshops...anything I could get my hands on! My first paid session back in November 2019 was $200. Now my sessions are priced at $995 and I'm booked 4 months in advance... and that's even with me relocating my business to a whole new state 2 years ago! I'm not telling you this to boast but to show you that it's possible to grow quickly if you're willing to invest in yourself.

I'm so excited you are here and ready to take the next step in your photography education! I can't wait to watch you grow!
