I launched my business in 2009 while working as a Registered Nurse and raising my little family. In 2011, I took a big leap of faith and left my nursing job to pursue photography full-time. It was the smartest decision I've ever made! I've created a business that supports my family, keeps me booked with amazing clients, and fuels my creative passion. I was recently recognized as one of THE BEST local photographers by the Richmond Times-Dispatch!

I've privately mentored amateur and semi-professional photographers, creative professionals, and new business owners. I'd love to help others learn from my experiences, successes, and yes, failures. I promise to make you feel comfortable in my cozy office while also offering honest encouragement. 



I possess expertise in the following areas:

Business Systems and Organization
Social Media
Preparing and pampering your client
Business and Family
Natural Light Photography and Composition

Mentoring Sessions are held on select afternoons in my Glen Allen office and include 2 hours of open discussion on any of the above small creative business or photography-related topics. The last half hour of the session can include headshots and/or hands-on instruction behind the camera if desired. Facetime or online chat can be utilized for those more than 2 hours away.
