I started my business after getting my first DSLR camera as a wedding gift — I knew next to nothing about photography, but I loved it.

In the beginning, I was afraid to tell anyone that I was starting a photography business. I thought they wouldn’t take me seriously, and might even make fun of me.

The thing is: now I talk to photographers all the time who are dealing with the same insecurities I had when I was just starting out — Turns out, ain’t nobody got time to be afraid of their dreams!

That’s why I teach the same systems and formulas that made me into the confident photographer I am today to photographers just like you.

my story might sound familiar...

oh hey!
