Hey there! If you've made it to this page, you're likely sitting where I was years ago. I remember the countless hours, months, and years I spent pouring over books, watching YouTube videos, and offering free shoots to learn this craft I love. I wish I would have had a place to learn hands on and ask questions. Ya'll, I started before Instagram was a thing! Now I'd love to share what I've learned with you!
What to expect...
Mentorship sessions are 100% flexible in terms of how you choose to use the time. It can be as simple as starting with the camera basics, or my entire workflow from start to finish. We can cover any subject including shooting, editing, business, and marketing.
Your mentor session can include (but not limited to):
• start to finish workflow
• finding your style
• defining your goals
• how to find + book clients
• taking care of your clients + customer service
• advertising + marketing
• pricing + CODB
• location scouting
• live shoot with senior or family*
• finding good light
• shooting, posing + camera settings
• post product, editing + lightroom
• image delivery
• website + image critique
• headshots for your website
How many hours should I book?
On average, most mentor sessions are 3-4 hours. Some are longer, some shorter. We tailor it to your specific needs! If you're interested in a live shoot with editing I would suggesting booking 2 hours minimum. My entire workflow from start to finish averages 6-8 hours, with most people breaking this into two sessions. If you simply need a little help with bookkeeping or just have a few questions, then one hour would be perfect!
Do you have presets? Is your bookkeeping system available for purchase?
I don't sell presets... but I do have a few favorites I can recommend to you! Most of my edits are hand-edits that I do in Lightroom. (Yes, I can show you!)
My bookkeeping and organization system is available for sale, but only to those who have completed one of my mentorships.
Do I need Photoshop to edit?
Actually, 90% of my editing is done in Lightroom. I use Photoshop only for advanced retouching. To learn my editing style, you will need Lightroom. Do you have Lightroom but don't know how to use it? I can teach you!
How do I secure a spot?
Shoot me a message! My mentorship spots are limited to certain days/times of the year so don't wait! A $100 non-refundable retainer and signed agreement is requested to reserve your spot. The remainder is due the day of your mentorship. I'll also email you some helpful info to help you prepare for your mentorship!
Do I have to live outside of the local area?
Nope! Whether you're local or from hours away, I'd love to meet you and chat.
