So you want to invest in your business... That's a pretty big deal & I'm already proud of you.
You're already making moves by landing on this page. It shows you care about your clients, yourself and your future!
Investing in education for your business is often overlooked, especially if you're in a complacent season in your creative journey, but it's one of the most important things you can do for yourself and for your clients! I'm a huge believer in education and learning from others. I truly believe everyone can learn something from any person, and I take that viewpoint into both my personal and professional life.
I set goals for my business every year, and education is always on it. I spent a lot of time prioritizing learning from successful photographers in the industry when I was first starting out and all of those experiences played a key role in where I am today.
One of the greatest joys of my business now is sharing what I've learned with others and helping photographers grow in their own businesses. It's been incredibly fulfilling to see other photographers I've mentored crush their business goals and being a part of their journies.
A rising tide lifts all boats. And that's why I'm a completely open book during your session. Nothing is off limits, nothing is hidden. We'll talk about the good, the bad, and everything in between. Whether your goal is to start a photography business, book your first elopement, break into the luxury wedding market, learn to shoot film, or you're stuck in a creative rut, my priority is being a part of you reaching your business goals.
"A week after my session with Kristen I doubled the inquiries off my website. " - Heather M.
"Doing a mentoring session with Kristen is probably one the best decisions I’ve made in my photography business so far. "
"Doing a mentoring session with Kristen is probably one the best decisions I’ve made in my photography business so far. I prepared for the session and wrote down some questions and thought I really only wanted to talk about posing and attracting my ideal client. We ended up talking about my website and pricing structure, and YOU GUYS. It was EXACTLY what I needed and I didn’t even realize it. She opened my eyes to so much and made so much sense, that I finished the session with a spinning head, but in all the right ways. It left me with a new sense of focus and direction, confidence, and excitement. Don’t worry though! She still addressed all the questions I originally had, but she really kind of found what I needed the most work on and asked if I minded her going over it, and I’m so glad I said yes!
I went to work on re-doing my pricing, charging a little more than I thought I was comfortable with, and within two days someone booked my second highest package with no questions asked. Because my pricing structure now makes sense, thanks to Kristen!
Kristen was very laid back, down to earth, relatable, and professional. She was very thorough, had good constructive criticism, and made me feel completely at ease and like we’d be friends forever. She is very knowledgable, and successful, and mentoring with her was a really great experience.
I would recommend if you’re considering a mentoring session, DO IT. You won’t regret it. It’s money well spent, and worth every penny."
"A week after my session with Kristen I doubled the inquiries off my website and found renewed sense of inspiration and confidence that has me so excited for my future. "
"My mentor session with Kristen was one of the most productive investments into my business. Being a part of an oversaturated industry, it's hard to know where to focus your efforts to effectively run a business without constantly feeling like you have to keep up with everyone else. Kristen brought me back to the beginning, to the WHY. Why I love what I do... Why I love to be with people on the most important day of their lives... Why I love to capture the memories that someday will be the only reason a couple remembers a specific detail. That changed everything for me. She was straightforward with me on everything from my website and how I handle inquiries to the overall experience my clients have working with me. Honest advice, not sugar coated opinions. She genuinely cares about my growth and even follows up to see how things are progressing. A week after my session with Kristen I doubled the inquiries off my website and found renewed sense of inspiration and confidence that has me so excited for my future. Her knowledge and the success of her own business speaks for itself, and her willingness to help other photographers shows just how much of her heart and soul she puts into her work. I would not be starting this year off in the position I'm in without her."
"By far one of my best educational purchases of the year was having the chance to mentor with Kristen! "
"By far one of my best educational purchases of the year was having the chance to mentor with Kristen! Before going into this, I struggled with effective posing, social media awareness, and SEO. During our session together, she showed me some suggestions that helped me grow tremendously in each of those areas. I'm now able to give my clients an experience that I would have never been able to before! I'm incredibly thankful for Kristenfor helping me through a small rough patch in my business. I'm so glad that I made the decision to mentor with such an amazing photographer and friend!"
