This is not your average course...

WHY? Because instead of a deep dive into a single topic, you'll learn the foundations for ALL the topics you'll encounter as you start a photography business and then take it from a side-gig to a full-time career!

Stop finding your information from hodge-podge sources all over the internet from different perspectives and focus in, taking this course one step at a time as it leads you where you want to go. Get stuck? Don't worry, there's a Facebook group with other students where you'll find community and problem-solving as you implement the content to launch your dream career!

• You're tired of trying to figure everything out on your own

• You want to walk into any scenario and be confident that you can create well-lit, sharp images that you can be proud of and that you know your clients will adore

• You need to know all the things, but you don't know what you don't know

• You need to book business in order to gain experience, but aren't sure how

• You don't want to be thought of as just "that friend with a camera" but instead want to be taken seriously as a business owner so you can get to the point where you can rely on it as a full-time career

• You don't want it to take 8.5 years to go full time like it did for Kira ;)

this course is for you if:

For the first 8.5 years of my business, before I went full-time (yep, it took me that long), I could never seem to get the education that would take me to the next level quickly because it was all so specific to one topic and I couldn't afford to buy them all + didn't know how to prioritize what would be most beneficial.

I wanted to share something that covered as much valuable content as possible about ALL the different aspects of running a photography business so at the end, my students would have a solid grasp of terms & tools & business growth practices that I didn't even know existed for so many years, much less how to implement them.

what's the cost?

I'm an Enneagram-obsesssed, foodie, mountain girl who fell in love with photography during my freshman year of college in 2010. Right away I decided I wanted to create beautiful images that told the stories of people's beautiful, messy lives and I wanted to cultivate a life of freedom and creativity for myself at the same time.

I'm a dreamer through and through and, while I'm a learner at heart, for many years I chose to invest in equipment over education because let's be honest - it's expensive and I felt like more gear was all I needed to grow!

But it turns out if I had learned some of the things I know now that I am living out my dream career full-time, I would have gotten here a whole lot faster! That's why this course exists and I have such a heart to help and serve you... because I was you!

pretty please can we be friends?

Samantha - past student

“This course is one of the best investments I've made since starting my business!
I've raised my prices, bought a new camera/lens, have a beautiful website, an actual workflow process, and feel confident this is something I will be able to take full time within the next year. This course is the reason for all of that. Having a place to start and checklists with what needs to be done has been invaluable, Because I'm a better business owner, growth has been exponential.”

Word on the Street

so what's it gonna cost?

Truth bomb: that's the wrong question. The right question is what is the cost of inaction? It turns out you can't get somewhere different by continuing to do the same things over and over again if they aren't working. So, is it time to dive in and invest in learning + making changes that will propel you forward? I have no doubt you'll make back WAY more than you spend on this course in ROI from the content you implement, as long as you are intentional to put in the work!
