EDUCATION AND MENTORING
GROW YOUR SIDE HUSTLE INTO A THRIVING BUSINESS!
Though I loved being a high school Physics teacher, I craved creativity, flexibility, and autonomy - I wanted to be my own boss and make my own hours. I wanted the freedom to pursue my own projects, but growing up, I was taught that art would never be more than a hobby. I was determined though to make a living from my hobby and proved my parents wrong!

"Your class was by far one of the best... I have watched countless videos and classes online and it took you minutes to explain lighting in such a practical and applicable manner."

The Work-at-Home Life
My dream work/life balance

Running my own business has allowed me to set my own hours, make a great living doing something I LOVE, while spending more time with my family. I have photographed and taught all around the world, including Asia, Europe, and South America. I have had the privilege of bringing my family to some of these destinations with me and love that I got to share the experience with them. But best of all, I get to sleep in! Well, as much as my kids will allow me to.

Being my own boss has made it possible for me to spend more time with my kids, and do things I'm passionate about, such as fitness, traveling, eating, and hanging out with friends.
