Being a photographer is so much fun + incredibly rewarding. I've been a full time newborn and baby photographer for the past 7 years and have photographed over 400 newborns and over 1000 babies. In that time I've learned so much, changed my work ethic + editing aesthetics numerous times, been mentored, attended photography workshops and conferences, and have gained insight, tips + tricks that I'm excited to share! Whether you're just starting out and want to learn how to make this into a business or if you're in an inspirational funk and need some encouragement + excitement to get back on track, the following mentor session options are for you.
1-ON-1 MENTOR SESSION - $500
This is an all-encompassing session that will cover everything I do from start to finish. From attracting + booking my clients, to shooting, to the final delivery of images + blogging. This session includes a short styled shoot with a newborn, baby or family (your preference) so you can see how I shoot, pose, + direct them.
