Whether you’re just trying to take pretty photos of your baby or you’d like to start learning the business, I am here to help.

This is an opportunity to learn in a hands-on fashion. We will spend a fun and productive day together starting with instruction and image review, ending with a hands-on photography experience to apply what you’ve learned.

  • 2 hours of one-on-one instruction, image review and discussion

  • 2 hour hands-on session, photographing alongside me as I explain my process

  • 1 hour image review phone session of photos from session and your follow-up practice session

  • a head shot you can use for personal and business purposes

– Additional hours available at $320 per hour
– I am available to travel – travel and lodging fees are additional

Coaching Session – $650

If you’re someone who learns best by doing, let’s do a session together and I can show you how I use light and location, as well as how I direct and interact with my clients. Then I will turn the reins over to you and act as a coach, cheering you on as you create great images. The session starts with a half hour consultation and camera set up, followed by two hours of hands-on photography.

Phone Mentoring – $675

Don’t live in California or have the time and resources to come of in-person mentoring? Then perhaps customized phone mentoring is for you. I have helped photographers who live as far away as Belgium and Germany! Sessions can be on any topic from the photography to workflow to business.

  • 3 hour block of time

  • used in half hour increments

  • any topic you wish to discuss

Business & Workflow Consulting

Consultations are aimed at working professional photographers who would like to work smarter and improve their businesses. 

  • $300/hr by phone

Consultation topics include:

  • pricing strategies

  • marketing and business growth

  • workflow for greater efficiency and more profit

  • Lightroom editing techniques

  • web site evaluation

  • data backup strategies

  • faith and photography

Image Critique

It’s nearly impossible to know what you don’t know. I believe the fastest way to grow as a photographer is to have someone else review your work and help you know what you don’t know. My critique style is positive and gentle, but honest, with my goal being to encourage you and give practical feedback you can put to use on your next photo session. These sessions can be done in person, by phone, or online using a online gallery that allows commenting.. 

  • $150/hr phone critique

*additional travel fees may be added for on-location consulting and critiques
