Let me guess- you’ve found a passion for photography. You’re ready to turn that passion into a lucrative business, but you have no idea where to begin. It seems daunting, but I’ve been there- exactly where you are. And I absolutely would not be where I am today without seeking education within the industry. There is no way I could have learned this information in a typical college setting or by figuring it out on my own. So why should you have to?
I am so stoked to be offering mentorships for aspiring photographers! Taking advantage of mentorships has been a vital part of my growth, and I am so pumped to give back to the community that’s built my business from the ground up. During our mentorship, we can go over camera basics, lighting, composition, editing styles, client communication, portrait sessions, social media, Lightroom, pricing, gallery delivery, detail styling, must-have wedding shots, reception lighting, back-up systems, personal brands, website critiques, and virtually anything else pertaining to a wedding photography business. Nothing is off the table.
"If you are looking for a down to earth, super sweet, and AMAZING photographer to be your mentor, look no further! I could not recommend Jamie as a mentor enough! She was so knowledgeable, patient, and helpful. She has given me all the tools and guidance to feel more confident in my new business and with clients. She has given me all kinds of tips and tricks and so many recommendations for various things to point me in the right direction and make sure I succeed. I had zero experience before coming to her and I feel like I have grown tremendously just in the short time that she mentored me. I'm forever grateful for this amazing opportunity and if I could do it all over again, I most definitely would!" - Heather McFarland Photography
A one-time virtual mentoring session is perfect for the photographer who is not local to Eastern Virginia or would prefer a video call over meeting in person! A one-time virtual mentoring session is one hour long and we can go over anything you want pertaining to your photography business, plus the website & IG critique. I'll send over a questionnaire prior to help us both prepare.
In-person mentoring is the most thorough package you can invest in. It includes everything listed above- the one hour q&a, a valuable website & instagram critique, a one hour side-by-side portrait session, and last but not least- personalized headshots. This package is for the photographer ready to make the jump to really invest in their business.
Ongoing mentor sessions are great for the photographer who wants accountability from the time we meet for our first session until the very last. You can either book 3 virtual sessions, or one in-person experience with 2 virtual follow up calls.
"Jamie’s one-on-one mentorship has been extremely helpful in developing my skills as a photographer. We initially met virtually, and she walked me through a typical wedding day step-by-step. She included information about everything from recommended camera lenses, questions to ask before the wedding, organization tips with family portraits, all the way down to tips on detail shots. She calmed my nerves and made me feel a lot more confident and ready to start my journey into wedding photography. Jamie and Roman are both so sweet, kind, and encouraging. I am not typically a very confident individual, but their mentorship has made me feel much more comfortable in pursuing a new sub-genre of photography."
