Nikki, Charlotte & Sarah

  • Coaching

love something… you like talking about it. That’s just the way it goes. Why do I show everyone pictures of my dog when chances are, they’ve already seen him… because I LOVE him!! So when it comes to photography and answering questions, I’m in my element. Now, this doesn’t mean I want to discuss aperture settings and backlighting while I’m sitting at the dinner table… but when I do have a chance to talk business with other photographers, it’s fun for me! The BEST type of photography conversation is one that allows me to help newer photographers grow.

Seeing them have a “light bulb” moment is awesome!! Ya know, when you share that one tip and all of a sudden EVERYTHING makes sense?! Yea, those moments. They’re the best!!! And I get to experience a lot of those moments through Coaching sessions!! When I’m only shooting with two photographers at a time, I get the chance to answer specific questions and hear their story.  It’s SO much easier to help someone move forward when you know where they are coming from and I think that’s why coaching sessions are working so well!


My time with Nikki, Charlotte (they’re a team!) and Sarah was amazing! I couldn’t have picked a group of girls with more energy and enthusiasm!!! They really brightened my whole WEEK! At the end of the day, I told Michael “I love doing this.”….. and so naturally, I’m offering more coaching dates! This little “idea” that I had last April has turned into one of my FAVORITE parts of my business!! If you’re interested in being a part of a coaching session in 2013, you can claim your seat TODAY! 20 dates were announced last week and 9 are still available!

    I think it’s so awesome that you share your talent& time like this! Your legacy in the photography world is going to be so much more than just your own amazing pictures b/c you’re inspiring so many other photographers. That is awesome! Keep up the great work all around!

    Ok so first off, amazing photos! I aspire to one day, not only soon be a part of one of these sessions, but also be as successful and happy as it seems you are!
    but secondly, PLEASE find out where those gray boots came from and let me know! (either Nikki or Charlotte is wearing them! not sure which is which) I have been looking for a pair like that for so long now and can’t seem to have any luck. :)

    […] no idea what it meant. But, after blog stalking my favorite photographers, and investing in one of Katelyn James’ fabulous mentoring sessions, I learned that features are an awesome way to get your name out there and a way to showcase your […]
