Mentoring

It's time to Level Up, Pup!

Running a profitable, sustainable, and goal-smashing business should be fun! I help photographers get out of their own way, refine their pricing and processes, and up-level their photography business on their terms through support, strategies, and systems.

Do You Find Yourself...

Inundated with the many components of running a business?

Do you know you need better processes, but the thought of adding more to your to-do list or learning a new system feels overwhelming? 

Struggling with products and pricing?

Are your prices based on feelings or facts? Are you offering products you love or are you blindly mirroring what you see others offering? 

Longing to provide an incredible client experience?

Are you ready to enhance the value of working with you? Do you wonder what exactly that means to your clients?

My straightforward, structured, and seamless approach will allow you to:

Uncover the individual processes and systems that work for you as we dive into the backend of your business.

Discover your worth and align your prices to build a business that supports your goals, values, and lifestyle.

Eliminate the uncertainty surrounding pricing thanks to a proven system of establishing profitability.

Push through money blocks and limiting beliefs to help you book more of your dream clients.

Find the entrepreneurial flexibility and freedom that you desire using automation, integrations, and workflows tailored to your goals.

Finish our time together feeling encouraged and confident.

Hi, I'm Jessica!

I'm an enneagram 3w2 and a lover of automation, efficiency, and...macarons! 

As a six-figure photographer, I help other photographers refine their pricing and processes so they can master the client experience and cultivate a profitable and successful photography business on their own terms.

As an instructor and coach within the Flourish Academy's Elevate Program, my specific coaching focus is concentrated on in-person sales (IPS), pricing, products, mindset, client management, client experience, automation, and Dubsado as a Certified Dubsado Specialist.

I am also among the expert panel of pet photographers and a recommended coach with The Pet Photographers Club and a guest instructor and Academy Ambassador for the Hair of The Dog Academy.

But You Can Call Me...

I've been called an IPS Jedi master, the pet calendar contest queen, a pricing guru...and a fur-covered magic-maker, but you'll also know me as:

  • Your accountability ally.
  • Your partner in profitability.
  • An open book on systems and strategies.
  • Your GPS navigation on the path to bold action.
  • Your biggest cheerleader—because your success is my success!

My purpose is to not only inspire you to up-level your business but to provide you with the support, strategies, and systems to do so easily. Whether we're getting you out of your own head with pricing, implementing or improving workflow, or crafting a one-of-a-kind client experience, I am here for you. (You don't even need to lint-roll the dog hair off your clothes.)

Ready to Get Down to Business?

Private one-on-one mentoring sessions are designed to address your specific questions and individual needs.

  • Sell more of what you—‍and your clients—‍love!
  • Leave behind second-guessing your prices and profit.
  • Eliminate the worry of missing a step in your workflow.
  • Be excited about your business.
  • Save years of stress and experimenting.
  • Have more clarity and confidence.
  • Get comfortable with your numbers and making money.

It's possible. And I'll give you the tools, strategies, and encouragement to make it happen!
