hey, I'm Bridget!

I know how hard it is to run a business...

When I first started my photography journey it felt like I had hundreds of questions and I had no idea where to find the answers. After years of trial and error, scouring the internet, gaining 2 business degrees, and just plain winging it, I finally felt like I had the knowledge I needed to put my plans into action. But something was still missing. So, I found a mentor. Having someone there to ask questions and bounce ideas off of made me accountable and pushed me further than I ever expected. After just a few months I saw real tangible change in my business. After going through this process myself, I realized I wanted to help others do the same!

The phrase "give a man a fish and you feed him for a day, teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime" comes to mind. I'll teach you the tools for successful business management, marketing, and photography so you can continue to adapt and make changes to your business as your goals change overtime.

I don't believe in traditional photography education. You know the kind that tells you to follow exactly what they do to be successful. Everyone has different goals, aspirations, and dreams. So why should your business look identical to someone else's?
