My passion for teaching and community inspired me to create an online publication and community for family photographers called The Kindred Path. At TKP we feature the work of family photographers all over the world, publish free educational articles for photographers, and we host in-person workshops where those in the industry can come together to learn, connect, and grow together.

I offer individual mentorship and coaching, tailored to the specific needs of my mentees, and I would love to connect with you if you are interested in learning more about my family photography education offerings.

I'm a firm believer in the sentiment that we grow much better and much faster together than we do when we try to go it alone. I've been lucky to have many amazing influences in my life, in both art and in business, and I am passionate about bringing like-minded creatives together to help one another. I hope my growing collection of family photography education courses helps to inspire and motivate, and I am always available to answer questions along the way.

As family photographers in a sea of amazing artists, I know it can sometimes seem a daunting task to create the imagery that you imagine, especially when working with clients that you have never met before and fast-moving children. I've been there, I've lived it, and I want you to know you CAN create the images that speak to your own soul, all while delivering beautiful artwork to the families your serve.

You can create the imagery you've been dreaming of, and I believe you will!

This is why I'm SO excited to announce my series of styled sessions and mini-workshops coming up, right here in Richmond, VA, and the first one will be June 3, 2023!

In these events you can expect:

  • 1-2 Hours of teaching on topics most relevant to family portrait photographers
  • Q&A Session to answer all your questions related to the event topic
  • Styled family photo session guided by me to coach on my favorite shooting techniques, location selection, and more
  • Portfolio building with your own images from the session
  • Fresh head shots of your beautiful, smiling face to build client trust and market your brand

Whether you’ve been in business for years or you're just starting out in this creative industry, you will leave this event with more confidence and tools to create the images you've been dreaming of! 

Discussion Topic for June 3rd:

  • Building your portfolio in a way that is meaningful to YOU

Almost every family and motherhood photographer has planned what the industry calls a “Model Call,” in some shape or form.
