just for you, sweet friend

education 

I photographed my first solo wedding at the rookie age of 16 with nothing to show for but a full heart and empty SD card. It was both terrifying & exhilarating. When I got home that evening I remember thinking, "I could really see myself doing this" so I gave it a shot & like you do on any good rollercoaster, put both hands up in the air and enjoyed the ride (with some definite screams along the way). I'm thankful the Lord had bigger plans for that girl. I'm grateful he chose to use and mold me even in awkward teen years. 

In those first few years of business I made it a point to invest in as much education as possible. That was so important to me as a growing photographer because I knew those investments had the most value to offer. And they did. Those mentors not only invested in me, but freely shared their experiences, genuinely wanting to see me soar and that is what I believe we as leaders are called to do. 

Now I'm the first to admit, I don't know it all (who does?) I'm learning more with each passing day, but over the course of the last 4 years I have built a business that I'm proud of & genuinely excited about! I want to share from my experiences in hopes of seeing you soar!

I'm a passionate encourager for the "just-starting-outers", the creatively driven young dreamers, who just need a pep talk and a point in the right direction. I believe in you because I was you! I stood right where you stood, friend! And boy, would I have loved to give that 16-year-old me a sweet heart-to-heart. I would tell her that she is more then her failures or stumbles along the way. She is worthy & capable of her calling no matter how inadequate she may feel and so are you, friend!

 The Photo Bootcamp is all about diving deep into the nitty gritty of what I wish I knew + had access to from day one when I was just embarking on my business journey at age 15. I share on the strategy & tools I full heartedly believe in and have used personally in my business. More than that bootcamp is a portfolio building event designed for photographers to cultivate community in the creative world, become more confident in their craft and walk away with a new found excitement to chase after their dream with a plan!
