I launched my business in 2009 while working as a Registered Nurse and raising a family. I had fallen in love with photography all over again and 12 hour shifts at the hospital were becoming increasingly difficult with my husband's out of town work schedule. I finally took the leap and left my hospital nursing job to be a full time business owner in 2011. It was the smartest decision I've ever made!
I've previously mentored new photographers, mothers wanting to take better photos, and creative professionals, but have not offered sessions publicly until now! My experience in creating my homemade business has been mostly trial and error as well as following my heart. I'd love to help others learn from my experiences, successes, and yes, even failures. I promise to make you feel comfortable in my cozy office while also offering direct and honest encouragement. I possess a high level of expertise in the following areas:
Business Systems and Organization
Preparing and pampering your client
Business and Family
Natural Light Photography and Composition
Mentoring Sessions are held on Wednesday or Friday mornings in my Glen Allen office and include 2 hours of open discussion on any of the above small creative business or photography-related topics. Facetime or online chat can be utilized for those more than 2 hours away. The last half hour of the session can include headshots and hands-on instruction behind the camera if desired.
