One of the absolutely greatest accomplishments of my photography career was being selected as a Click Community Mentor. The Click Community is an online community of photographers that brings women together, cheers you on, and gives you the resources you need to take more photos you love. As a mentor we are selected for our artistic and technical abilities, our knowledge of our craft, and our deep desire to give back to this community. I'm in several photography groups and communities, and there is none other like that of Click Community and Click Pro. Ask questions, receive constructive feedback on your photos, and get advice on everything from shooting to editing to business – anytime, from anywhere.

Fearless Indoor Lighting

Thank you for being an incredible mentor and always cheering me on and answering my many MANY questions!


Let's do this!

Each session is customized to your needs. I am an open book and will answer any & all questions you may have. We can get you confident shooting in manual, learn new photography techniques, or watch me edit. I will walk through how I prep my clients, ways to capture everyday, beautiful moments of your own children, and how to "see the light"! 

One-on-one mentoring

After gathering a portfolio of up to 150 images, I will review and critique the images providing you with detailed ideas for how to improves. We will then discuss your individual strengths/weaknesses and your complete body of work. I will help you see you areas of growth and set up various goals to improve who you are as an artist. As a Clickin Moms mentor I review lots of portfolios and also co-lead two Click Pro prep groups and am confident that I can help you meet all of your growth goals.
