I have been entirely self taught since day one. I taught myself how to use a camera, how to cull and edit images, how to build a website, marketing strategies, timeline building, contracts, all of it.
I wish I had someone that I could call up when I was struggling or had a question (would have saved me from countless breakdowns hehe).
I want to be that for you. Lets grab coffee and chat about whatever your heart desires. Want me to style a shoot for you? And be there alongside you and guide you through posing, lighting, settings. Anything you need, I'm there.
Setting aside time to create for yourself is so important in this industry. I often find myself getting caught up in the day to day. Having time to get creative with no agenda or expectations is so freeing. I noticed a lack of this about 2 years ago when I went to Utah and attended my first one. It was so amazing seeing everyone come together and create. Encouraging one another, asking questions, learning, trying new things, networking, and just taking time to sit back and relax together.
I wanted to bring this idea back home, so I did just that. I host content days every few months and they have been so incredible. It's one of the best ways to experiment, make connections with other vendors, and do something different.
Invest in yourself.
