Building a family photography business is kind of like going to Harry Potter World. (Stick with me, I promise there’s a connection!)
At Harry Potter World, you can wait in all the lines and spend 2.5 hours to enjoy a 90-second ride OR you can pay more for a fast-pass, skip all the lines, and enjoy that same ride with none of the hot, annoying wait time.
A 1:1 Family Photography Mentoring Session with me is like buying that fast-pass. Sure, you could wade through hours of YouTube videos, buy courses, and piece together a business over the next few years OR you could spend one day working with me and have everything you need to build the business of your dreams in a single day!
I took the long route. I invested in programs and courses and charged way too little and made all of the mistakes. But I learned. And over the last 12 years, I’ve built a thriving, streamlined, profitable family photography business that I’m obsessed with.
I’ve been through the struggles. I know how long it can take and how hard it can be to create a business that works. That’s why I want to share everything I’ve learned with you – so you don’t have to go through the same struggles and obstacles.
Trust me, the fast-pass is so worth it (and technically, they call it the express pass at Universal...but you get the point).
