How We Work
I understand the challenges you are facing in managing stress, multi-tasking, editing your work, promoting yourself, understanding an ever-changing market, keeping up with social media, trying to price your services, and in making time to run your business. (And in a pandemic, no less!)
My goal is to help you figure out how to reach your goals and your potential clients in a way that feels comfortable and authentic to who you are, with the time and resources that you have.
When working with me, I want you to leave feeling confident, supported, understood and on your way to making more money with more freedom to do what you feel truly passionate about while leaving anxiety at the door.
I specialize in helping my clients understand their target market and position themselves to appeal to those clients. I help photographers and reps strengthen their websites and social media from the perspective of a potential art buyer or creative director. Once my clients understand exactly who they are targeting with a refined body of work, I then give them a marketing roadmap that is easy to follow and maintain, and the personal support to take more risks and be seen in their business.
My special sauce: Presence, intuition, and being genuinely invested in your success.
I am passionate about equity and diversity. If you feel like you need sliding scale pricing, please do not hesitate to reach out to me.
Enough about me, I want to hear about you!
