I've always been passionate about helping others and I think now more than ever, we need to help each other  so we can all be successful.  I've learned  A LOT throughout my journey starting a business and get asked many questions about growing your social media quickly, learning manual mode, how to get into weddings, how to establish a business, editing and posing/working in session. So, I finally decided to start offering mentor sessions so I can  really set aside time to help other creatives reach their goals.

Let's be successful together

Nicole is not only a very exceptionally talented photographer but an amazing mentor as well! Being new to the photography business I came across Nicole’s page. I loved her work and decided to reach out! Nicole was not only very warm and welcoming with me asking for help, but she asked me the very next day to come with her on her styled shoot! I was more then excited and got to see her behind the scenes. I got to watch as she talked with her couple and prompted them. How she was ontop of every detail and every angle. She made the couple feel so comfortable! She explained why she was doing what she was and why she was having them do the prompting and the outcome from it. She has answered every question I’ve had as far as lighting and scenario and even came to my house to fix my camera for me! Nicole is the absolute best at what she does and will be the biggest help! She was like a momma bird to me and fed me all her info then pushed me out of the nest and I couldn’t have been more happy for that! She believed in me and my work and she was right!

I had been a hobby photographer for over 10 years when I decided to make the leap into full-time. It was really important for me to cross my t's and dot my i's with all things photography.

When starting my professional journey, I immediately reached out to Nicole. I met her through mutual family/friends and had been following her work and her personal journey as a photographer. I also knew I wanted to learn and further educate myself from her.

I took advantage of all three of her mentorship programs including The Basics, Shadow Session, and HoneyBook Rundown and am SOO glad I did! She was extremely knowledgeable and open. Through seeing, teaching, reading, listening, doing, etc., I was able to make great strides with both my photography and business skills.

Shooting in manual mode has completely changed my game. I used to be so nervous and confused when using it. After just ONE Shadow Session with Nicole, the shots I want, I am now able to confidently get! My photography has become much more consistent and therefore, has also saved me SOO much time in post!

If you are thinking about furthering your photography education (or thinking about starting out), you will not be disappointed with any of her mentorship programs. The investment with Nicole and her business is priceless!
