My mission 

 Is to help photographers to go from overwhelmed and burnt-out - to living in balance,  running their portrait business with ease, and making the income they truly desire. 

Where I started

When I quit my job in 2012 - I had no idea how to run a business.  I had a camera, a tiny shared rental studio space - and a dream.  

Two years later  - I started over as a single mama with my 12 month old son and I decided that getting a job or going on welfare - were NOT options for me - I was going to make my business work.  

Since then - I learnt how to run a profitable studio that not only supported my son and I but also a business that supports a team of people and gives back each year to causes that truly matter. 

But it wasn't always easy

Many times on my journey I was sure I would fail.    I battled with trying desperately to juggle motherhood and a business, I cried A LOT, and I was often overwhelmed, stressed and burnt out.

 

I would look at the amazing talent around me and would be filled with self-doubt about my own worth, my pricing and my business in general.

 

I worked long hours and often 14-day weeks - all while juggling a toddler who spent far too much time in daycare and at nights - he never slept. 

 

I was sleep-deprived, exhausted and many times I just wanted to quit. 

I began to think like a business owner - not a photographer - and it all changed

Once I changed what I believed was possible for me - I began to develop the courage to take new steps, to put my fears aside and to really grow.

I learnt to simplify my business so that it could run profitably and streamlined. 

 

I implemented systems, people and marketing to grow my studio. 

I attracted an amazing team who felt more like family than employees. 

We had a constant stream of ideal customers.

I worked just a few hours a week.

 

And - most importantly- I was finally getting to be the mum I always dreamed of being for my son.  

I eventually sold my studio in 2021 and now help other photographers to find balance and run their own profitable portrait businesses.

A Little About Me

I couldn't live without coffee! 

I love being on the beach early in the morning.

One of my favourite things to do is load up the car with a tent and a BBQ and take my son camping. 

I will ALWAYS sing along to anything country! 

I'm obsessed with growing our own food in the back yard, and making sourdough. 

My dream getaway is when I'm on a horse in the high country.
