Mentorship for Photographers

If learning photography is a dream of yours but you aren’t sure where to start, or if you’re ready to take your photography skills to the next level, I’m here to cheer you on.

I built my photography business from the ground up and I would love to share my story with you and teach you what I have learned along the way. Whether you’re looking to chat about all things photography or learn how to shoot natural, emotion-evoking photos, I'm here for you!

The Offerings

Let's Chat


Let's Meet


If you have a few questions or topics you’re dying to know a little more about or live out of state, this option is for you. You’ll send me your questions ahead of time and then we’ll hop on a 30 minute FaceTime or phone call to go over them!

We’ll meet at a local coffee shop where you’ll have the opportunity to ask me anything you’re interested in learning more about. We’ll bring our cameras and laptops so we’ll also be able to go through any shooting, editing or workflow questions you might have.

Topic ideas: Getting started in photography, social media/website overview, photo prompts, branding, etc.

Topic ideas: Editing, workflow, camera settings, client emails, wedding day preparation, photographer-client relationships, starting your photography business, etc.

Let's Shoot


Let's Do It All


This option is for you if you understand the basics of photography but are looking to elevate your sessions and shooting skills. You’ll set up a session of your choice (family, couples, etc.) and I’ll be there to help guide you and answer any questions you have along the way. 

From start to finish, we’ll meet, chat, shoot, and edit! We’ll start by having two 1-hour meetings at a local coffee shop to go over anything you’re interested in learning about as well as prepare for a photo session. We will then schedule a session where you’ll have the opportunity to shadow me for the first half followed by you taking the lead while I answer any questions you might have. Soon after the session, we will meet again for 1 hour to go over workflow, culling, and editing, as well as discuss how the session went and any other questions. 

Topic ideas: Camera settings, natural lighting angles, backgrounds, prompts/poses, etc.
