Starting a photography business wasn't easy, and sometimes I wish I had someone to guide me and show me the ropes. Since I've always had a passion for sharing what I know, what I've learned, and helping other chase their dreams, I want to be here for YOU. I figured that giving you this opportunity would be perfect, and we'll become friends in the process, too, it's a win win! Once we work together, you have me for life. You'll be added into a private Facebook community of others who have worked with me before, so we can all share tips & support each other on this journey. Learn & grow with me - let's do this thing!
meet-up & learn
These can include anything and EVERYTHING that you can fit into two hours. These sessions are Q+A styled sessions led by you; I encourage you to come with bucket loads of questions prepared. We can cover any topics such as pricing, work flow, editing tips and tricks, weddings, posing, how to get clients comfortable, marketing and social media tips, booking ideal clients and more. The options are endless & I am here for you. Nothing is off the table.
- 2 hour video or in person meet-up -
These are perfect for building a portfolio, and hands-on learning about how I work during a session. This can be any type of session you're most interested in. And don't worry, I'll provide the humans! You'll learn about how I get my clients comfortable in front of the camera, prompts & poses I use, how I evoke and capture real emotion. We'll take it slow and I'll give you opportunities to stop and ask questions, and learn as we go throughout the shoot.
- 2-3 hour live shoot of your choice -
full day hang & learn
This session combines a meet-up & learn with a live shoot. It's basically a full day hanging out and learning with me. We meet-up, go to a live shoot, and then meet-up again. At our first meet-up, we'll go over anything you want. This is the perfect time to ask any questions, get ready to shoot, and pick my brain. Then we'll go to shoot together, we'll take it slow and you'll be able to stop and ask any questions throughout the shoot. And then we'll head out together for our second meet-up where we'll go over the shoot, you'll ask questions, we'll edit together, and you can pick my brain again!
- 5-6 hours spent learning with me -
"Sarah has honestly changed my entire life. Before meeting her and having her as a mentor, I wasn't able to do anything with a camera besides point, shoot & hope it would come out well. Now I not only know to change settings and what they mean, I know how to edit and market myself. She has helped me realize my passion and helped me move forward with my dreams to make them a reality. I'm so thankful to have someone with me who genuinely cares about me and wants me to succeed every step of the way."
"Every single photographer needs a mentor session with Sarah. I came with a few specific questions, and every one was answered with so much detail and even expanded upon. Her expertise in this field, her professionalism, and her skill level all combined with her radiance and positive soul was beyond what I could imagine in a mentor. She gave me so many tips to help guide me in this very difficult time and she also gave me feedback on ideas that I has come up with. I wasn't hesitant to ask her anything - she was so open and honest. She represents the definition of community over competition and that is gold in this industry. I have learned so much from her that will extend far beyond photography."
"My mentor session with Sarah was amazing!! Not only is she kind and easy to talk to, but she was knowledgable about every photography topic. I felt comfortable asking her simple and complex questions and trusted that she would give me her very best tips. I also loved that her approach is very holistic - she shared practical tips for success, but also discussed the mental and emotional aspect of being a small business owner. This left me feeling inspired and refreshed not only regarding business, but my overall creativity."
"I had a mentor session with Sarah and it was awesome! She is fun to talk to and was extremely knowledgable about photography and bringing mindfulness into it, which I could see she is very passionate about. She is such a sweet person and I felt instantly comfortable during our session! I'm really happy I got this opportunity to learn from her and improve my photography skills and my business!"
"Sarah is such a kind hearted, sweet person. Having never done a mentor session before, I wasn't quite sure what to expect. But I was quickly blown away with how down to earth Sarah is and how simple it was to just chat away. There were a few questions I had written down and Sarah answered them without hesitation and with confidence. It was as if we've met in person before. I would 10/10 recommend her to any photographer starting out or just looking for guidance."
