Do you have big dreams for your business?

Hey new photographer! I know the struggle of trying to learn all the things while keeping the tiny humans alive. 

Imagine building the family photography business of your dreams (while making money), without scouring the internet, asking questions in facebook groups, or using trial and error in the small pockets of time you have outside of raising your family.

I know you have big dreams for yourself. To go from answering every facebook post of "I need a photographer" to being sought out for being the best in the biz. 

Ready to finally feel confident in your skills and bring in dream clients? 

Your dream business isn't that far away. And it doesn't have to be complicated! 

What if you could finally build your dream business, book dream clients, and make money without being overwhelmed?! 

If we're being honest with each other, it's probably pretty overwhelming. You may have lots of doubts. And you're wondering if you're always going to feel this defeated. Sound about right? Then I'm SO glad you're here! Because you're definitely in the right place!

So you've decided you want to be a family photographer

You don't have the time to really dig deep on the technical parts of photography

Does this sound familiar?

At the end of the day you just want to take beautiful family photos. 

Believe me when I say that I get it. Because I've been exactly where you are right now. 

I remember scouring the internet and researching all the things in all my "spare" time. I was so overwhelmed and tired of wasting time on things that didn't work. I was tired of asking questions in Facebook groups. 

Once I became more confident I couldn't figure out how to find all these "ideal" clients that wanted to pay me money. 

You may know the end result you're aiming for but have no clue how to get from point a to point b. 

But now I've done it! I'm booking ideal clients, in ideal locations, and making money. And my students do too! 

It's not about the having all the presets or most updated gear. You don't even need to live somewhere with mountains or beautiful scenery. 


You don't feel confident in the business and backend part of running a business. 

You aren't getting enough interest from the types of clients you're dreaming about. 

You need to start making money!  (i/e you need to stop working for free)

As a family photographer for over 8 years I have learned how to build and work my business so that is works FOR me. 
I grew up in Boise, ID. Went to college to become a horse trainer (yes that's a thing). Then got my dream job outside Seattle teaching riding lessons to kids. After meeting my submarine officer husband I joined him in moving about the country (VA-CA-WA). Two kids later we are now living the civilian life back in Idaho.
