Coaching & Mentorship
Before I went full time as a photographer, I spent a decade as a high school history teacher and another three years mentoring teachers in best practices. Being an educator is a fundamental part of my being. I love supporting others on their journeys and with over eight years in business as a photographer and over 100 weddings photographed, I have helpful insights to share. Over the years I've helped new photographers set goals and develop strategic actions plans, learn to shoot in manual and master their camera, build a portfolio from scratch, curate an elevated brand aesthetic to attract a higher end clientele, and so much more. We’ll begin with a questionnaire to focus our time together and ensure it’s as impactful as possible. Whether you’re looking for a few specific answers or want a mentor to help you set and achieve goals in an ongoing relationship, I can’t wait to hear about your business and help you get to the next level.

Then follow up with three 1-hour accountability sessions held over the next few months, along with unlimited email access between sessions.

coaching intensive details - $600
Intensive coaching sessions take place face-to-face because diving deep into your business together is an endeavor best done in person. I’ll host you at my home or we can meet up somewhere convenient for you (fee for travel beyond 15 miles of Dorchester). Each intensive includes pre-work that is integral to making the most of our time together and can be completed in 20-30 minutes online.
copy writing intensive
The trick to great copy is to sound like you do when you’re talking to a dear friend. With this in mind, we’ll spend up to three hours together overcoming your hangups with starting the copywriting process, identifying and honing your unique voice, refreshing your current website/social media copy, developing your personalized copy writing toolkit, and creating at least one new piece of copy from scratch to flex your new copy writing muscles. I’ll also provide written feedback on two blog posts or emails in the month following our session for continued support and fine tuning of your brand voice.
client experience intensive
Providing a remarkable client experience is one of the best forms of marketing you can do in your business. We’ll spend up to three hours together analyzing your current client experience from their first time visiting your website through when you deliver their amazing images. We’ll then identify opportunities for you to better support, surprise, and delight your clients at every point in the process. This is NOT only about spending money or giving client gifts. Instead, we’ll focus on what makes you and your business unique and how you can translate those things into an experience that will have your clients singing your praises. I’ll also share my favorite tools for creating helpful resources for my clients.
I want you to work smarter, not harder. We’ll spend up to three hours together evaluating your current workflows, isolating each of the major milestones and tasks in your work (from fielding an inquiry through delivering a final product and collecting reviews), and creating a logical, efficient, personalized workflow. This includes email templates, client touch points, and offline tasks. And I’ll help you make it usable and repeatable - the two hallmarks of a truly effective workflow - whether in a simple spreadsheet or within the CRM program you’re already using. If you don’t have a workflow created yet, don’t worry - we’ll craft one from scratch for you!
