Your brand’s voice and visuals just aren’t aligning, leaving you and your audience confused.
Find your strengths, weaknesses, & opportunities with a brand audit.
Let’s face it, if we don’t tackle these hurdles head-on, you might miss out on some amazing opportunities. Your brand could end up blending into the background, and that spark inside you? It might feel like it’s dimming. But hey, this isn’t just about growing a business – it’s about embracing and living out your creative calling to the fullest.
here’s my story:
Photographer since 2008, mom of 1 rambunctious boy, and 6-figure portrait and wedding photographer turned brand coach.
As a photographer, I was under the impression that taking great photos was all you needed for a booming business. But, let me tell you, it didn’t take long to realize that success in photography is a mix – sure, 30% is about nailing those perfect shots, but a whopping 70%? It’s so dependent the business side of things. It’s an art in itself, mastering how to run your business effectively.
At some point, I was on that relentless chase for more clients, thinking it alone would boost my income, but ended up swamped with editing, culling, and endless admin tasks. My personal life was already a juggling act, and once I had my son? There went any free time I thought I had left.
Fortunately, I was always tech-savvy, a perk of my marketing background. Frankly, it was my lifesaver. It kept me afloat through the tidal waves of running a solo business while my family was growing. It helped me transform what started as “barely making it” into a streamlined 6-figure business, bringing both financial and time freedom that I desperately needed.
Now, I feel a deep calling to share this knowledge. I’m not just here to hone your skills as a photographer, artist, or creator – that’s your 30%. My mission is to take on the hefty 70%, breaking it down into pieces that are not just manageable but actually make you more profitable. With bespoke brand coaching tailored for people like us, I’m here to help you thrive in business and life.
Because you shouldn’t have to choose between making a living and making a life.
