Call me weird, but I love talking about building a successful photography business. I'd love to help you with your business. Go ahead -- ask me anything.

Light. Perspective. Composition. Connection. Purpose. Your own true vision. My favorite, favorite thing to talk about, in fact, is the family lifestyle process and how to turn it into a business that works within the parameters of your life. Too broad? Here are some more specific topics. Pick one or two or come up with your own and we can chat in person, on Zoom or on the phone about it:


  • Finding the people who are excited by the same things as you (your ideal clients)
  • Curating a portfolio that you and your ideal clients love
  • Growing your client base
  • Referral programs: helping your clients help you
  • Organization and workflow
  • Pricing profitably
  • Finding business balance
  • Creating a marketing plan
  • Establishing a social media/web presence

  • Freezing the Moment: Capturing spontaneous moments and cultivated natural interactions, and finding a balance between the two.
  • Prepping Clients: Helping clients feel compltely prepared so they can relax and enjoy the session.
  • Making it Easy: Helping busy people get from the desire to freeze their memories to enjoying their story in tangible form.
  • Crafting a client experience.
  • Mentoring starts at $350 per hour, with package discounts available for three hours or more.

    These are just suggestions - let’s chat about your needs.
