Welcome photographers! I’m so grateful you’re here.
I believe that running a photography business should be fulfilling and fun. My coaching is centered around helping other photographers create sustainable business models that align with their values so they can focus their attention on the work that makes them light up.
With 10 years of experience in the wedding photography industry and over 150 photographed weddings, I know what it feels like to seek a balanced and healthy relationship with your work. Just over 1 year of becoming full time photographers, we doubled our revenue from our first year in business, and one year later, we tripled it. The formula we were using was tried and true; hustle hard and photograph as much as possible, saying yes to everything that came our way. 4 years in to running our business and hitting the 39 photographed weddings in one summer, we started to feel the effects of burn out. We started to question, “If we’re burnt out now, how are we going to make it as wedding photographers for the long run?”
Thus began the most important shift of our life. We started to embrace minimalism and ridding ourselves of all we didn’t think was serving us. We sold our house, went down to one car, bought a camper and traveled the US for three months, and returned feeling a little lost on what would be next for us.
Fast forward to 2016, the year we became pregnant with our first baby. We had created all of the space we needed to embrace parenthood, cleared our schedule from feeling overwhelmed, and focused on our transition into being working parents from home. But something still felt like it was missing from our business. It wasn’t until the birth of our daughter Vera Esperanza, (her name meaning truth + hope), that we found clarity in what was lacking in our business. Our truest selves.
From 2017 until present we have been able to realign our purpose and mission, bring ourselves and the excitement back into our business, and embrace a truly abundant life while doing so. In early 2018 I launched my sister coaching business, Aligned + Kind, to focus on helping other entrepreneurs align with gratitude for the present, their truest purpose the natural abundance that comes with it.
My educational offerings encourage a balanced and authentic approach to creating a life of abundance by living an aligned + kind life. I offer business and life coaching, freebies and soon to be launched classes for photographers created around helping you create a sustainable business and more importantly a business that connects your passion and purpose to bring you prosperity.
