Whether you are a beginner photographer or already have a photography business started, these one-on-one mentor sessions are completely customized and designed for YOU. Having over 6 years of lifestyle + portrait photography experience, I am excited to start sharing some of the tips, tricks and knowledge that I have obtained over the years!

I have set TWO options for these mentor sessions.
The first is geared towards beginner photographers, and the second towards photographers who already have an understanding of their DSLR camera, and want to take their business to the next level.



BEGINNERS MENTOR SESSIONS

This in-depth 4 hour session covers camera fuction (ISO, shutter speed, aperture, etc), lenses, RAW & JPEG files, and the basics of nautral light. We will meet somewhere rad, dive into your session, eat (because that is extremly important), and you will leave your sessions with a better understanding and confidence to utilize full manual settings. You will also be provided with an information booklet + some activity sheets to take home with you!

Do you have a friend who is also interested in learning? These sessions are great fun to do in group settings- let's all learn together!

1 Person: $500
2 People: $400/each

1-Hour batch sessions are available as well:
4 Sessions: $500
6 Sessions: $720
8 Sessions: $880
12 Sessions: $1260

ADVANCED MENTOR SESSION - BASIC

So you already have an understanding of your DSLR camera, but want to take your photography to the next level. This one-on-one session is all chat. We will meet at a rad cofee shop. We will sip, munch and cover a multitude of topics (that have been previously established based on your needs/desired), and go through all questions you have. Whether you are wanting to go over business, posing, client interaction, goal setting, website/portfolio review (and the list goes on!), all questions are welcome.

1 Person: $175/hour
2 People: $125/hour

ADVANCED MENTOR SESSION - FULL

We chat + SHOOT. That's right. This session includes all the delights of the basic advanced mentor session, additionally with a 1+ hour live session that we will work through together. The session will be arranged based on your primary area of focus (family, couples, portrat), and we will walk through how I interact with clients, and capture candid, unposed images in natural light.
We will end our time together with a mini portrait session of YOU (because I simply cannot resist). It's so important to be aware of how our clients feel infront of a camera so we can better relate with them and work to create that optimal comfort level. Sessions last between 4-6 hours, with a maximum of two people per session.

1 Person: $600
2 People: $500/each
