When Life is Hard, Find a Woman to Make it Easier!

Entrepreneur life is hard. When I started my business in 2013, I had no idea what I was doing. Taking pictures was my jam. I didn’t realize I was starting a business and would have to do all the things! I mean, my degree is in elementary education!

A business plan?

A marketing plan?

Pricing so I could actually make money?

And over the years I have built an amazing business with the help of some female mentors – one of which doesn’t even know I exist! And with today being the last day of Women’s History Month, I thought I would pay tribute to them!

The Women Who Have Helped My Business

Me, Sue Bryce and Pamela Wandrey at WPPI in 2016

Sue Bryce – I first heard Sue speak at WPPI in Las Vegas in 2016. She blew me away! Not only is she a phenomenal portrait photographer, but she is a powerhouse when it comes to running a photography business! Her speech literally made me turn my pricing around and helped me become a profitable photographer.

Sabrina Gebhardt – Do you follow me on Instagram? You might have heard Sabrina’s name before – she’s my real life mentor (like she knows I exist) and she’s the kick in the pants and the wealth of knowledge I needed in my life as I transitioned from posed newborns to lifestyle sessions. She also helped me navigate Covid as a small business and my business expansion to DC! And as luck would have it, she has a FREE Check-in Challenge next week. If you’re a photographer join!

I could list all the amazing photographer friends I’ve gained throughout the years, too, but I’ll spare you! You know who you are and I am so thankful to be surrounded by strong women who inspire me and lift me up!

Happy last day of Women’s History Month!
