For the 




Let's spend an evening together (roughly 3.5-4 hours) going over all the things that will help your business and art.  We will spend our first hour together talking about anything you want to learn, CODB, Marketing, Attracting your Ideal Client, Social Media, Camera Settings, Lighting, Location Scouting, Styling, anything at all you want to learn to help boost your business! 

Our second hour will be spent shooting a sunset family session fully styled by me. You will shoot along side me where you can watch and see exactly how I run my sessions, ask questions about settings, etc. along the way and get some beautiful shots for building your portfolio.  

Our last hour together will be spent editing together.  You will learn what presets I use and how I tweak them.  You will receive my custom brushes I've built to achieve the edits I want, and see why I shoot with the setting I do to achieve those edits. You will also learn how I finish off my images in Photoshop and get my photoshop actions for portraiture and adding some detail to your final image. 

After our time together you will be added to my mentorship FB group too!

Wish you had a portfolio that reflected beautifully styled clients to help inspire future clients to dress the part??  Well a shoot out is definitely for you!  We will have a small group of photographers together to shoot a perfectly styled session and you can learn how I guide my clients for those beautiful storyteller shots!  Come have fun, participate as much as you want, if you prefer to sit back watch as it's happening and grab a few shots along the way that's fine too!!  Just come ready to make some magic, meet some new friends, and build your portfolio!
