Reading blogs, watching videos, and setting up meetings with other creatives bolstered my own creativity and gave me the incentive to keep growing.
I definitely haven’t “made it” – there won’t ever be a point where I have nothing more to learn or can’t be inspired to keep growing. But there are definitely things I’ve learned along the way. Creative tips and tricks that would have helped me so much when I first started. And I’d love the chance to give you the creative push that I so coveted when I was just getting going!
There’s not a lot that I enjoy more than helping other creatives with their endeavors so I'm always stoked at the opportunity to help others grow and cultivate thriving businesses. One of the first and most important things I learned in building my own business is that creativity doesn’t thrive well in a vacuum.
Over the years, I've benefitted exceptionally from other photographers and entrepreneurs who were willing to answer questions, share tricks, and give business advice.
Hey there – I'm so excited that you're interested in my mentoring sessions!
WHAT TOPICS CAN WE COVER?
Camera Equipment + Gear
Editing + Workflow
Social Media + Websites
Branding + Visual Identity
Whether you just got a new camera or have been shooting for years and need some more in-depth training, I'm here to help!
Timeline editing and color correction in Premiere Pro, culling and editing in Lightroom and Photoshop, we can cover the whole spectrum (yes, pun intended).
Struggling to present yourself in a cohesive way online or need help simplifying and streamlining your website? Let's get at it!
From marketing strategies to logo design, we can start right where your brand is at and develop strategies to help you succeed.
Regardless of where you live in the world, I'd love the chance to help you out with your creative endeavors! These sessions are exactly like my in person sessions, except we'll meet via FaceTime/Skype/etc and have a casual but intentional conversation about your questions and whatever you'd like to talk through!
IN PERSON SESSION
If you're local to the West Michigan area, amazing – let's meet face-to-face! These sessions usually happen at a local cafe and allow us the ability to have hands-on learning with gear as well as dive into all the questions you have about branding, editing, websites, and anything else you want to cover!
Is mentoring available only for photographers and videographers?
Absolutely not! I work with creatives on all levels as well as small and large businesses and I'm more than willing to tailor our conversation to fit your particular needs.

HOW IT WORKS
Whether you book an in-person or an online/digital session, we'll meet for approximately two hours and cover as much as we possibly can during that time!
I'm a firm believer that conversations happen most authentically in a relaxed environment, so my mentoring sessions typically take place at a local cafe (or from the comfort of your own living room if you booked an online session). Before we meet, I'll send you a questionnaire to help me know exactly how to structure our time together but, ultimately, the direction of the conversation is up to you.
No matter what stage of the game you're at, I'd love the opportunity to hear more about your work, help answer some questions, and hopefully provide some direction as you keep moving forward.
If you're to take the next steps to making this happen, just give me a shout and I'll take it from there!
