MENTOR SESSIONS

Being a photographer is so much fun + incredibly rewarding. I've been a full time wedding photographer for the past 4.5 years and have shot close to 100 weddings. In that time I've learned so much, changed my work ethic + editing aesthetics numerous times, been mentored, attended photography workshops, and have gained insight, tips + tricks that I'm excited to share!  Whether you're just starting out and want to learn how to make this into a business or if you're in an inspirational funk and need some encouragement + excitement to get back on track, the following mentor session options are for you.

1-on-1 mentor session - $700

This is an all-encompassing session that will cover everything I do from start to finish. From attracting + booking my dream clients, to shooting, to the final delivery of images + blogging + getting featured. This session includes a short styled shoot with a couple so you can see how I shoot, pose, + direct them. I'll also let you shoot them so I can help with any questions you have + give feedback. 
Nothing is off the table with this session, you can ask anything + everything! I'm an open book. You choose what we focus on. 
These sessions range from 3-5 hours, includes lots of coffee, mimosas, tons of feedback and most likely some inside jokes. 

Sessions include (but are not limited to):
+ finding your niche, your style + your aesthetic
+ how to attract & book your ideal client
+ shooting & posing (or rather not posing - allowing it to be organic + emotional)
+ live shoot with models or couple
+ finding good light, anywhere
+ workflow - from start to finish
+ goal setting & constructive criticism on your work and/or website
+ pricing & PDF's
+ advertising, collaborating, instagram

girlboss weekend (for 2 girl photographer friends) -
$900 each

1 weekend  |  2 mentorships  |  a hell of a good time
This photography mentorship is something super special I've come up with and it includes you + your bestie, or your photography buddy, or even your biggest competitor! This little retreat is for two girls who want to get away for a weekend with me and get mentored together. Community over competition! There'll be lots of devoted time + attention, lots of girlboss talks, photography education, and laughing our butts off. This weekend can be created however you want. (hint: it doesn't even have to be on a weekend!) 
It can either be held in your city, in my city, or in a destination city. (oh, did you say mexico? palm springs? big sur? italy? k, anywhere) Travel is not included in price, so keep that in mind. 
During these days together, it'll be treated as a mini retreat. We'll all stay together in the same place, shoot each other in fun places, have lots of good tunes + good adventures, edit + work together, + go over a ton of stuff including (but not limited to) the following:

+ meet & greet & hang time with coffee (or wine) flowing
+ work & website critique
+ live photoshoot - you'll watch me shoot a couple & how I interact with them, taking  notes & asking q's. I'll then let you shoot them for your own portfolio/editing, giving you advice and critiques when needed.
+ finding good light anywhere
+ how to shoot in different lighting situations + edit them to be cohesive with naturally lit photos
+ editing & workflow
+ website & blogging
+ contracts & emails
+ headshots of the two of you for your site/personal use
+ q&a - ask me anything
+ some solid friendship
