Hi, I'm Jessica, IPS Jedi master, enneagram 3w2, and lover of automation, efficiency, and...macarons!
In other words, I help 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.
Your Business is My Specialty.
I am an instructor and coach for the Flourish Academy's Elevate Program, "designed to help photographers grow their business by getting more clients and making more money" as we work together to "design a lifestyle business that works for you while also eliminating overwhelm."
My specific coaching focus within Elevate is concentrated on in-person sales, pricing, products, mindset, client management, 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.
My approach is straightforward, structured, and seamless.

Here's What My Fellow Photographers Have to Say
Feeling More Confident
"I had the privilege to have a mentoring session with Jessica. I was nervous thinking I would be out of my league with her considering where I am within my business journey. Her radiant smile and pleasant voice immediately put me at ease. With her efficiency, we were able to go over several areas. I came away from our session feeling more confident and encouraged to keep on pursuing my photography dream. Thank you, Jessica!" - Melissa Taylor of Simply You Photography
Firm and straightforward advice
“Jessica is extremely knowledgeable, not only with pet photography but with the backend of running a successful and profitable photography business. She offers firm and straightforward advice on how to raise your prices and know your worth. If you're looking for a mentor to help you with any aspect of running a successful photography business, Jes has the answers!” - Kim Kracun of Fotofixation Photography
Truly Catered to Me
"She truly catered to me, my dog, and what it was that I was most interested in learning. Jessica took the time to teach me about my camera, and she even emailed me a video about removing leashes in Photoshop. Mentoring with her helped with more than just learning about photographing pets; it helped me on my journey beginning my own business photographing all subjects. Her patience with people and their fur babies is outstanding and professional. Thank you, Jessica!" - Tracy Ann of Tracy McKee Photography
A seamless process
"Jessica is an amazing photographer, but more than that, she is the most organized person I have ever met. You will have a seamless process working with Jessica; she is so kind and willing to share her time and efforts when you need her. Jes spent an hour with me, mentoring me on a bunch of business coaching issues, involving processes, workflow, and pricing, and I came away from it a better businessman for it. She is fantastic. I highly recommend working with Jessica if you have the opportunity. Thanks so much again, Jes!" - Dan Quigley of Quigley Photography
The best decision I could have made
"The mentoring I've received has been the best decision I could have made for my business! Learning from someone who provides the ultimate client experience puts you on the right path and the knowledge I've gained is worth its weight in (Bark and) Gold!" - Heather Whitehouse of Heather Whitehouse Photography
A great resource
“Jes has been a blessing to me and so many photographers. Her understanding and knowledge have been a great resource for me and my photography business!” - Michael Holl of Holl Photography
Mentoring Investment Options
Hourly Strategy Sessions
This option is ideal for most mentoring clients and for Dubsado assistance, brainstorming sessions, pet calendar contest fundraiser help, automation implementation, client experience or workflow(s) refinement, and product and session pricing reviews.
Half Day of Mentoring
Looking to deep diving into your business? Want to photograph pets and their people alongside me? This collaborative option can be used as one half-day session or broken out as four-hourly sessions that offer the best value over booking multiple sessions individually.
