for my fellow photog friends!

learn from heather chipps

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


I believe in learning what YOU want to learn. It's not about my process; it's about FINDING YOURS.

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!

It was not that long ago that I was sitting in the same spot you're in right now. With a camera in hand and a fierce passion in your heart that burns like a blazing wildfire, I get it.

Psst! I am so happy you're here!

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!

Imagine wanting to be a better photographer


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!


This is for the person who has a "fancy" camera or honestly just getting started but seriously has no idea what to do with it to take nice photos. I will teach you the very basics during this session which will include how to use your camera on manual, and what program to edit with so you have gorgeous photos to be proud of!


If you're an aspiring photographer who has been trying as they might to perfect their style and photography abilities but cannot for the life of them move out of the rut they're in? Well, pal, then it might be time for a mentoring session to help with editing, defining your style, posing, shooting more effectively in manual, learning to shoot in good AND bad lighting and more. 

The mentoring sesh

This full day one-on-one mentoring is custom-tailored toward the photographer or aspiring photographer looking to take their current business or brand new business into the next level, then stop day dreaming, and let's dream BIG...together! Whether it's what to charge, developing a brand, improving client experience, bettering your camera skills, posing, name it! Nothing is off limits in this business intensive. 




Emily Hedrick, Branch & Vine Photography

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! 

She customized this experience to meet me where I was and helped me become the photographer I am today!

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!
