ONCE UPON A TIME...

I went through the same struggles of figuring out how to use manual mode, confidently posing clients & piecing together the business side of things

I went through the same struggles of figuring out how to use manual mode, confidently posing clients & piecing together the business side of things

Maybe you're going through the same stages of business - with similar thoughts that I had: 
- "Am I good enough?!"
- "How do people manage everything behind the scenes?"
- "I wish I had more time every day!! Wish I had a Time-Turner..."

But I know what's possible on the other end - I DID go full-time in my business just 11 months after I started, after all!

I know it's possible for you to triple your income & turn your passion into your dream job because I've done it! And I wholeheartedly believe that you have what it takes to do the same! 

Cheers, friends!

From charging $600 for my first wedding to over $5k and went full-time within 1 year of starting!

There was no ONE thing that led to my success - but I can tell you that building confidence through education and coaching was KEY!

Today my zone of genius looks more like equipping & encouraging creatives like you to become more confident behind your creative business!

I'm an open book with everything I've over the past few years as a wedding & brand photographer. You can count on me to always encourage you to lean into your unique strengths - because you should never have to compare your business journey to someone else's...

Whether it's equipping you with elevated imagery to take your brand to new heights, coaching you through the growth stages of your photography business, or easing your editing workload - I solemnly swear to show up for your business like it's my own.

I'm Manali, and I spend my time helping growing creative entrepreneurs become confident behind their business.

I'm multi-passionate and here to help you grow a life & business you love with more ease and less hustle. You can most often find me cuddling with Keegs 🐱, enjoying a hazelnut cappuccino at a local coffeeshop, on the river kayaking or at a local winery - bubbly in hand! 

"Easily one of the best investments I’ve made for my business yet."

"The Behind the Business Course is a game changer! I needed to streamline my business to help it grow and improve client experience. [My systems were] all over the place. I loved the step by step approach to everything from inquiry to album delivery [in the Course].

Easily one of the best purchase I’ve made for my business yet. Almost too good to be true. The amount of stuff packed into the vault is crazy. Plus it gets updates every quarter based on your feedback. Guides, templates, resources, workflow, etc. all for one low price.

Seriously, one of the best investments you can make. I started using the resources in the vault and immediately saw results based on my clients feedback."
