You dream all day about what could be
You're tired of saying "no" to your dreams
You need inspiration and a hand to get you there
You're DONE holding yourself back
You're ready to START but don't know how or where to begin
You need an encourager who's been there before and totally understands what you're feeling right now
You just want to take better photos with your “fancy” camera
The problem for me was that when I started this photography journey back in 2009, right out of high school, I had no idea what I wanted to do with it, let alone how to work a "nice" camera that had multiple lenses! YIKES!
Like I said above, there were not many mentoring sessions or one-on-one opportunities out there then, so I had to do it the old-fashioned way—trial and error. To be honest, I couldn't have been happier with that because I am where I am today because of the hard work I put in and staying dedicated to learning the craft. That’s where I come in for you! After studying graphic design in college and being an assistant teacher for high school students for a few years, I learned that I loved to teach, and that's what I want to do with you!
or having a nice camera and not knowing how on earth to use it. What do you do? If you're like I was, you drool over other photographers' work and think, "Man, I wish I was like them" or "They make it look so easy!" You may have also experienced a dark place of feeling like a failure because of their "success." You shouldn't have to feel that way, EVER!
My process is my process because it works for ME! While it's TOTALLY fine to admire and be inspired by someone's work and process, it's most important to discover your own, and that's exactly what I am here to help you do! This is about YOU and figuring out what works best for you. Photography is not easy and requires lots of practice, but if you just can't shake the feeling of wanting more, I am here to help you take it to the next level!

I cannot express enough how necessary this is for photographers of any stage! The one on one and in person meetup helped it all “click” and I felt like I could open my business with so much confidence and education from the start! She truly loves what she does and it shows with each person she meets. She truly has a passion for helping others and sharing her years of wisdom in a way no one else has for me! You will NOT regret it. To this day, Heather has been the best investment I’ve made for myself and my business!

Heather has been a guiding light in my journey! From answering business questions to teaching me the basic foundation of using my camera/flashes, I couldn’t be more thankful to have her in my corner. To this day, she still answers any questions I may have and provides guidance when I’m struggling. Not only is she an incredible mentor but also a dear friend!

I am so thankful for Heather’s mentorship. It has helped me in so many ways, including editing, posing, and style, but it mostly gave me the confidence I needed to really continue on my journey. She is so knowledgable in all aspects of her business and she shares all of her knowledge to ensure you can be just as successful. She is truly an amazing photographer and educator. She is so helpful and such a hype girl.
