how it all works &
What to Expect
Whether you are just getting started with your photography business or a more experienced photographer, I will meet you where ever you are and you will leave with a plan and action steps to achieve your goals. During this mentorship we will uncover your strengths, weaknesses, review your goals, and discuss the path to achieve them. We can cover any topic related to the photography industry. Behind the camera, we cover shooting, composition, light, editing and defining your voice. Behind your computer, we can dig deeper into your business goals and discuss how to attract and retain clients. This also includes marketing topics such as your website, branding, social media and more.
We can touch on one topic or several, my goal is to customize our mentorship together to suit YOUR needs. Let's dig deep together and really focus on improving!
Mentor sessions take place in person on the Big Island of Hawaii or online. Inter-island sessions available for a $250 travel fee.
my hope for you:
I want you to feel revived and refreshed. I want you to be encouraged and inspired. Most importantly, I want you to walk away with knowledge you didn’t have before, and the ability to move forward with your business and reach your goals.

Shadow Me Mentor Session // 6 Hours
The best of both worlds! Have you ever wondered what my sessions look like from behind the scenes? Here's your chance! You’ll receive absolutely everything from the 1:1 Mentor Session and then you'll get the chance to photograph a session right along with me. Whether you are new to photography or have been doing it for years, watching someone else in person run a session from start to end will help you gain new techniques, perspective and outlook on how to start or improve your current workflow.
This can be a real session or styled session with models, depending on what your portfolio needs. If you’d prefer a styled session then together we will choose a location and models and all you need to bring is one camera and your favorite lenses and an open heart!
We will shoot side-by-side and you'll see first-hand how I interact with my clients, direct them, and find that dreamy light. As I pose and direct I will tell you exactly where and how to shoot to produce images that showcase connection and emotion. You'll also be shooting so I can coach you and give you feedback. You will be able to use all the images you make for your website/portfolio.
After the shoot, we'll go grab coffee or a bite to eat and spend 1 hour going over the session and any and all questions you may have.
But it doesn’t end there! After our mentor session you get 2 additional 1-hour online skype sessions to make sure you’re on the right track and to answer any other follow-up questions you’ve got!
Mini Learning Sessions
