So many amazing photographers have been there for me to teach me the ins and outs and I want to pass that on and educate others. Photography can be a lonely career, filled with constant comparisons and doubt. I want to help you feel more confident in your skills, and your journey as a photographer!

Do I have to live in South Dakota to mentor with you?
No, I have options in my mentoring that will allow us to mentor via Skype, Google Hangouts or even coaching sessions via email
What is gone over in a mentor session?

Every mentoring session is completely customized to what you feel you need to work on the most! There is no set plan or course of action for any session. We can discuss shooting, posing, business, pricing, and portfolio; anything you want really!  Levels of mentorships start at portfolio review and go up to a full day in-person mentorship with a shoot along.
Do you take my photos during our mentor session?
A mini-headshot session is included with a full-day mentorship!
This all sounds awesome and exactly what I need, what’s next?
To learn about pricing and what would be best for your business, please contact me!
I can’t wait to learn more about you and how I can help you grow!
