SHOOTOUTS * WORKSHOPS * 1:1 MENTORSHIPS
I want to say how honored I am to be a part of your journey as a creative. There is so much to share, with education being a constant path of inspiration, excitement, challenges, and success. My story began 7 years ago and continues to evolve each and every day. My goal is to open new doors, share new perspectives, and help you become the artist you envision through learning lighting, artistic interpretation of emotion, connection, and movement, as well as building your business to be successful and fun! There are so many avenues to learn so check out the various ways to create and collaborate through SHOOTOUTS, WORKSHOPS, or 1:1 MENTORSHIPS. I can’t wait to meet you!
SPRING, SUMMER, FALL, & WINTER SEASON
Northern California Landscapes including beaches, redwoods, mountains, rolling hills, wildflowers, lakes/rivers, sand dunes, & more!
Come join me in a unique learning opportunity in various Northern California locations each season! In this styled session + educational workshop, you will get to capture incredible imagery with families or couples in styled wardrobes, while showcasing the beautiful landscapes around Northern California!
Education will include the client experience from start to finish: from how I set up my clients for success regarding choosing wardrobe, location, and communication, to the session itself, where you will see how I interact with couples or families to build rapport, ignite excitement, and hold a space for families to feel comfortable being their authentic selves. You learn my thinking in how I choose places within the environment to set up interaction and the fun prompts I use to create a space for joy. Not only will you be able to see my session flow, but how I plan for editing, and various changing or challenging conditions during a session. In the end, you will have a beautiful gallery to edit and showcase to your clients as part of your growing portfolio!
Fall Colors Edition
The Homecoming Workshop in my HOMETOWN, Loomis, CA, is an event for all photographers to learn, connect, and truly create a sense of community among artists. Styled shoots will be set among beautiful backdrops with a country feel. There will be farm animals, cowgirls, boots, barns, flower farms, & more. We will be staying at the Flower Farm Inn, which has heritage cottages set amidst deep green grasses and lovely seasonal flowers and foliage. We will have time to not only shoot alongside one another and learn various techniques shooting in different lighting scenarios, but build your portfolio with some truly magical imagery. Time will be set aside for editing, as well an evening to eat farm fresh food, and connect with one another. Join me for an unforgettable evening in Loomis and the surrounding areas for INSPIRED:CREATIVE – Homecoming Edition!
