heyyy, sweet friend!

I am SO glad you’re here, looking to grow and learn and level UP in your business. Let’s get straight to it, shall we? 

This job is the absolute bee’s knees. We get to be there for people’s biggest and sweetest moments, and build genuine friendships along the way. THAT is what drew me into this art- the connectedness. The passion. The rawness and realness. That’s what makes our images so beautiful, isn’t it?

HOWEVER- the process of building a successful photography business depends on countless other facets: marketing, workflow, posing, lighting,  attracting/booking clients, consistency, branding, goal setting, and so many others.

I’ve spent 9+ years behind my camera, all the while learning effective business tactics, shooting for hundreds of clients and brands, and quitting my day time job to pursue what I love full time! Do I know it all? Nope. Do I have knowledge and experience to share? Sure do!

I’m an open book, y’all. I just L O V E what I do, and would love nothing more than to help create success and growth for YOU

Sessions are held in person (I’m based in the Kansas City area) or FaceTime/video call! My preference is always to meet in person, but I understand that’s not always doable. I’m flexible with whatever works best for you!

Whether you’re looking to start up your business, or haven’t been thrilled with results in one or more aspects of your biz (booking rate, social media, client interest), OR need a good ol’ creative kick start, mentoring sessions are for you! Education was (and still is) the biggest contributor to my growth.

LOL no way, boo! Like I said- I am totally an open book. Whatever you want to know/ask, I’m ALL for it! There’s no such thing as “secrets” in this industry, in my opinion- we’re all learning from each other and growing together.

Ooooh let me hear it!! Each session is customizable, and if you have a specific need not covered above, you better believe I’m here for it. Just let me know in the contact form and we’ll make it happen!
