To six-figure Entrepreneur

from mom with a camera

Marketing is my bread and butter, so from the very beginning I had clients. But there's a difference between marketing for business and marketing for long-term success. It's true. If you blog, post on social media, network, and neglect every area in your personal life in order to gain customers... you can! But those customers will not be loyal clients. And at some point you are going to find yourself stuck on the struggle bus with all the other millions of photographers feeling burnt out and plagued by self-doubt, comparisonitis and perfectionism! 

I'm not a psychic. I know that's where you are because that's where I was. But if I could go back and tell myself two things, these would be it: 

Your superpower isn't just your why, its not your ideal client, it's not your brand, your dreams, your passion, your vision, or your goals. It's what you get when you put all of those things together. 

busyness is not success.

don't let those stat's deceive you... it hasn't always been this way! 

and

find your unique superpower

The truth is friends, you have a unique way of seeing things. You have a powerful story. You have strengths and weaknesses that will affect how you do what you do. You have passion and personality! And that is the perfect formula for one UNIQUE photographer....



I believe that photographers have this amazing gift of seeing things the way that not everyone can and it's our job to remind the the world of that beauty. Photographers don't just take photos. 

They breed unity. 
They remind us that we are not alone.
They give us the hope we need to keep going. 
They challenge us to look inward and how it effects our outward living. 
They help us to refocus and realign. 
They encourage us to love and recognize who loves us.
