1:1 mentoring with sarah

Feeling overwhelmed when it comes to running a solo business? Let's talk. 

I know the feeling of excitedly starting a photography business and then quickly learning that most of your time is going to be spent doing anything BUT photography. It can feel frustrating, but once you have the right systems and workflows in place, you'll be able to make more time for the part of the job that you actually LOVE.

My 1:1 mentorship sessions are customized to meet you exactly where you are in your business journey. Whether you want to improve technical photography skills, business organization skills, or a little bit of everything, we'll come up with a personalized plan to get you on track.

I believe that together we are more than the sum of our individual parts, and there's room for all of us at this table.

Being a solo business owner can feel lonely and stressful AF, right?! I believe that in order to succeed, we need community, mentorship, and connections that help open doors and show us the way.

You deserve approachable and tailored education that will help you ditch your fears, save your time, and build confidence in your skills— regardless of whether you're a "self taught" photographer or have a wealth of knowledge on the topic.

We all need support in life + in business, and helping each other is how we get through it and learn to thrive. That's why I've chosen to mentor and educate other photographers who are where I was once in my photography business journey. We can't do this alone!


no gatekeeping here!

You'll love my fun and non-techy approach that resonates well with self-taught photographers.  In working together we'll not only build your confidence and skills, but we'll have a good time doing it too!

Approachable and dare I!

My resources for photographers are based off of what I've been successfully using in my own business and with my own happy clients for years. If you like the style of my work, I can teach you how to get the same results in your work!

The literal opposite of gatekeeping

Not only have I been sharing my photography expertise for years now, but I also used to teach nursing students in my previous career and even won an award for excellence in teaching!

This ain't my first teaching rodeo.

trust me, i got this.
