Most of all, discover how to have a healthy relationship with your work. Start running a business that leaves you feeling rested, good, and with an endless well of creativity and inspiration. Because in order to create your best stuff, you have to have the mental & physical energy for it (you deserve it).

learn how to take beautiful images that make you feel something and your clients love. 
no matter what location you're in, or how well behaved the kids and parents are, or what the light is like

We all joined this profession because we wanted more freedom in our life. We wanted to do something that was fun and joyful, and that we felt proud of. 

After years of photographing families, i've come to learn that taking images with feeling starts with the joy you have for your work. How present you are in your own life.

all the ways you can work with me on deepening your artwork, building confidence as a photographer, and creating a business that gives you joy and freedom

Years ago I found myself struggling, broke, and wondering whether it was time to give up. I had been photographing families for so long, and yet I was still finding myself stuck in patterns of work that left me burnt out, no time to be with my family or care for myself, and still living paycheck to paycheck. And then we had a new baby... and then my dad died... lots of unexpected repairs popped up for our home... and my husband lost his job. I was in my lowest hour and I knew I needed to make a change because the reality was, I wasn't ready to give up on myself or my dreams. So I hired a coach with the little bit of money I had and ever since I've been on a journey that's brought me more joy and freedom and growth than I could have ever imagined. And it was all because I chose to invest in ME. Now I want to help others finally stop the cycle of burn out that I escaped from, to stop playing small, and step into your leadership as a photographer and business owner because when we step into that role and make work that we're proud of, we're free to live our life with purpose and happiness. And best of all we inspire those around us to grow and live their dreams also.
