Explore Your Technique, Refine Your Style


If you're a photographer and find yourself in need of guidance and inspiration, I offer a limited number of 6-month mentorship opportunities. These mentorships are designed to steer you towards the next chapter of your business, providing you with business resources for branding and design, studio workflow to run your business smoothly, hands on assignments, portfolio review and so much more.

Above all, it connects you to your ‘why’ and helps you find your path, your creativity and inspiration to do what you love. Mentoring alongside me extends beyond our scheduled sessions; it's a dynamic relationship that evolves and strengthens in the community we create.

1:1 mentorships


When I began photographing weddings 15 years ago I found myself lost at times and lacking support. Throughout my journey of building my brand and my studio, I have learned how important it is to create community, support each other share resources and inspiration.

As creatives and artists, it’s our human nature to seek collaboration, community and connection. I love being able to share my experiences, resources and help you find your creative path. I am excited to create a series of workshops that will help foster creativity and growth. Below you will find information about upcoming workshops and resources.
