I’m so honoured you’re here & that you’re interested in having me come alongside you in your photography journey!!

Over the past 5 years I’ve mentored over 100 photographers, in ALL ranges of experience levels, from mom’s with new camera’s just learning their camera settings, to part-time photographers wanting to make the leap to full-time, to experienced full-time photographers wanting to up level their business.
Wherever you’re at in your photography journey, I’m passionate about meeting you right where you’re at, and helping you bridge the gap between where you’re currently at, and where you’d like to be, busting through any blocks, and creating a clear action plan for you to take the next steps towards your big beautiful goals.

Every single mentor session is tailored towards you and what you want to learn. 
I’ve got multiple packages to choose from, depending on how many topics you’d like to dive into, and how much time we’ll need together to cover ALL. THE. THINGS.

My goal is to leave you feeling not only inspired, but CONFIDENT in your unique perspective & the magic that you bring to the table, in that sacred way only you can.
