You’ve finally conquered your camera-settings, finding your first client and the *dreaded* finances side of things. Cheers, you deserve to pour yourself one!! Hustling hard has led you to get a taste of success. Now you have your sights set on intentionally scaling & elevating to the next level! You’ve even dabbled in a course or conference, or two – what a thrill!

But now as you continue to grow your business, you’re looking for VIP-level support, resources & accountability to grow –  FAST without adding more to your to-do list. Maybe you’re craving a new level of clarity & confidence?

Well, if that’s you, you’re in the right place, I USED to be you!

Fresh off the momentum of hitting my dream goal of going full-time with my photography business (just 11 months after getting my LLC!) I often found myself wondering. . . “What’s next?!” 

“What did I want to do long-term?” “Who did I want to become in the industry?” “What direction did I want to go in next?”

Months went by until I finally, I took the plunge and joined my very first group coaching program at the beginning of 2019. It was the biggest investment I’d made in myself before. But it paid off in doubling my revenue that year.

My coach & community pushed me to believe in myself as I tackled growing pains to a new season of confidence in myself &  my business! I finally gained the confidence & clarity that I was lacking. Plus a group of biz besties that encouraged me to define my own version of success in life & business – and live it out every day!

And now I’m on a mission to give back to photographers that are in the SAME place that I was! That’s why I created the Elevate Mastermind for photographers within their first 1-3 years of business. The program is 6 months of high-level support and coaching designed to help you elevate your mindset and business so you can continue to grow with ease and support along the way.

Inside the 6 Month Elevate Matermind you’ll get a high level of support & accountability with?
