I’m really not even sure where to start because I just can’t handle the cuteness in this blog post!!! Over the last few years, my sweet friend Kat has walked through so many tough seasons.

I can’t believe it’s this time of year again!!! Each year, I spend time selecting the BEST images in three different categories: seniors, engagements and weddings. It’s a long and tedious process, but it is always SO rewarding to look back at some of my favorite work from an entire year. Up first I’m sharing […]

Build Your Senior Photography Business

I began my business during my junior year of high school, and fell in love with photography while capturing all of my peers and their senior portraits. I built a six-figure photography business on my passion for senior clients - and now I help hundreds of photographers across the globe do the same! 

Free downloads, blog posts, YouTube videos, online courses and memberships... I have it a resource for you!
