Why do I want to mentor? I want to mentor because every single person deserves a champion, and I want to be that person for you! You have just gained an amazing friend who wants you to know you are valued, seen, and heard. I am so excited to go on this amazing ride with you!
You deserve someone who will stand by your side, hold your hand, be invested in you, teach you, show you the tough love, be 100% transparent and honest with you, hand out praise and constructive criticism, laugh with you, cry with you, hug your neck, and cheer you to success throughout this wild ride. I can and will be that person for you. As a middle school teacher, I am extremally passionate about education. It’s why I have taken so much education myself. Not to copy the teachers before me, but to use the guidance I have been given and made my own to grow, help, and guide others. Every person learns in a different way. We are all unique in our learning styles, so I want to be unique in my teaching style.
I am completely transparent, and I have created my mentorships to give you tools to become successful. With dedication and hard work, we can create something amazing for you. I want you to find your spark, what sets your soul on fire, and to create a foundation for you to be sustainable and successful.
I am so humbled that you are considering me to be your mentor. It is not a job I take lightly at all. Where would you like to begin this journey? Are you interested in business? Do you need help with session flow, direction, or posing (Newborn or Maternity/Motherhood)? Are you struggling with trying to find your niche and style? Do you need help with editing? I am here for you. I am here to guide you through this process to becoming the best version of yourself. We can do this in person or online. You choose what fits your style of learning best.
Possible talking points: Business, Branding, Gear (what gear I love & why, camera bodies, lenses etc…), Camera Settings, Lighting, Session Workflow, Website & Portfolio Review, Social Media, Editing, Styling & Client Closet, etc. – Anything you have on your heart or want to learn!
Shoot Along Mentorship
Sometimes seeing the way someone else interacts and sees details can be very eye opening. During our shoot along mentorship, I will guide you through a styled session of your choice (Maternity, Motherhood, or Family) at sunset. We will meet for 2 hours prior to our session to go over the styling and vision behind the session, and anything else you would like to chat about.
Local to me? No worries! I am totally cool with mentoring photographers that are local to me.
Not local to me or can’t commit to traveling to Oklahoma just yet? I got you! Let’s hop on Zoom and talk about everything! Online mentorships begin with a questionnaire prior to our first meeting. This will give me an idea of what you are seeking from our time together. We will have a three-hour video meeting to discuss anything you want individual attention on. Cameras, lenses, fun gear, editing, social media, business, branding, styling & client closet, location scouting. Online sessions will include website/portfolio review prior to our time together. The sky really is the limit and I’m an open book!

Newborn Posing Mentorship

Newborn babies have had my heart since I became a photographer. I have a passion for these tiny humans and photographing them. I have been professionally trained in person and online by the industries best newborn photographers in newborn safety and posing. We will be using studio light as well as natural light (if needed), and we will cover the equipment and settings I use with my studio lights. You will learn how to safely pose newborns, refine, and perfect the poses. Newborn safety is my number one goal. IN. EVERY. SINGLE. SESSION.
I will cover soothing, transitioning, wrapping, beanbag poses, prop poses, parent poses, and prepping parents for their sessions. The second baby will start with you choosing a pose to work on, where you will have a chance to do some hands on posing with me assisting you! I will teach you what camera settings I use to get a beautiful creamy photograph every time. I will go over my post processing flow, and what actions I use to make my processing super easy. You are free to bring your laptop and edit alongside me. At the end of our mentorship, we will head to dinner and discuss anything you would like, business, editing, safety, and anything else that is on your heart. Come prepared with all your questions!
