YOUR ADVENTURE | YOUR STYLE | YOUR GROWTH | YOUR ENERGY
The reasoning behind merging mindfulness and photography is how much it has benefited me over the years I’ve been in business. I have on and off struggled with burnout and wished I had have learnt more when I was starting out about how to preserve my energy and balance my life personally and in business. This also effects the quality of my work and the way I interact with my clients. The workshop is all about you and is for strictly for 10 women only who own their own photography business and want to dive in deep with a day full of love, support and connection. I want to keep the group small and interment so you can find a beautiful circle of friends where you can help and support each other along the way. I understand sometimes in this world of running your own business can be lonely so let’s embrace each others journeys and learn from each other. I have ideas of what I would love to teach but I will also find out what the 10 women want to learn and merge this into the day. I’ll try to cover as much as I can. I’m super excited for this journey in my business & can’t wait to meet you all.
WHY MENTOR WITH ME
I have been in the photography industry for 20 years, You can go to my ABOUT to read more.
We can all find it really hard sometimes with this new world of over stimulation, on Insta you can look at thousands of photographers and it can be really challenging to not compare yourself, over think things and feel like you have to do what they are doing – BUT YOU DON’T – YOU NEED TO DO YOU!
It’s normal to be super excited about your business and want to do it all straight away with unrealistic goals…..Hey I’ve been there over and over. It’s amazing to have all these dreams but you need to take steps to get there, to find your way, to build your clientele, and to find your look. As a photographer we all get inspiration off other creatives around us, I sure do! I have the most incredible group of women photographer friends who I look up too and we are all there for each other, give support and help each other grow. That’s what I will do for you, I WILL SUPPORT YOU!
My advice to all new photographers or even as a reminder to all of us who have been doing this for years is to be authentic to you, find what makes you tick. Yes get inspired by others but make sure you’re not copying their work. Use them as a form of stimulation to create your own style. AGAIN I CAN HELP YOU WITH THIS!
MENTORING supports and guides you, it’s a safe space with no judgement for you to bounce off ideas and to be accountable for the goals that you set for your business growth.
It took myself years and years to find my style, i have played with hundreds of presets, worked for other photographers for free to learn new skills, Ive booked myself into courses, attended one on one mentoring and photography retreats, and I’m still learning and evolving today. I often check in with Lauren from Love Her Wild for my mentoring and support and feel it will be endless. We will all keep evolving and changing forever.
❁ MEET & GREET
You will receive 3hrs mentoring time with an additional 1 hour follow up phone consultation. If you need more than 4 hours in total, it will be charged my hourly rate.
We meet in a cafe or online and chat about planning your goals and what you’d like to achieve. Ask me anything! Please bring any questions and feel free to write notes. This is a mentoring session to customise for your needs.
❁ MEDITATION & BREATHING EXERCISES
These sessions are aimed to help with any feelings of anxiety. You can do this before you shoot to ground you and help you be completely present at the session. I have over 20 years yoga experience and 380 + hours of yoga & mindfulness training.
❁ LIVE SHOOT OF YOUR CHOICE
Prior to the session I’ll answer any questions regarding your camera settings and functionality. I will then find the perfect location to suit the project and we take turns shooting while I direct you and an added bonus – you can choose whichever images you like for your portfolio!
I will also arrange extra projects to help with your growth so think about what else you would like to do with your business. For example weddings, kids, newborns, couples, motherhood, etc.
Note: If doing online this part is taken out, we will definitely discuss how you shoot and I can tell you about my process to help you.

To help continue your growth, I be in touch the month after your session via the phone to see how you are going with goals and if you have any other questions I can help you with.
