ALL HEART ACCESS

ONLINE EDUCATION

When 2019 came to a close and I realized that my 2020 calendar was already fully booked, yet I was still receiving messages almost daily about “do you have any workshops or mentorships available” “are you releasing presets” “when’s your next editing video coming out” and so on and so on, I felt really sad. I’ve found teaching to give me a greater purpose outside of myself, by helping lift other photographers to their untapped potential and it’s been so fulfilling. But I realized that time was out and me trying to juggle giving everyone the presence, love and support I know they deserve was at its max capacity.

So here I am taking a long, honest look at my intentions and availability. I do want to give continued support to everyone I’ve taught in the past and also the people I haven’t been able to get to and meet in-person yet. But it has to be in a way that isn’t face to face. There’s just not enough time for me to get to everyone that I want to get to. So, I’ve developed something I think is kind of incredible. It’s not another online course for the low payment of $19/month for x, y and z. But something more honest and all encompassing. Because that’s me. If I’m going to do something, it’s going to be with my full heart and abilities to help (I’m just not a salesy kind of lady). And I should also say that I’ve never had the opportunity to build a course this in-depth before nor will I be teaching anywhere else online this year, so that’s kind of big for me.

Here’s what I’m thinking… what if I gave you my custom built presets and actions and didn’t make them available to the masses? Walked you through how I see and create those images by explaining all the little things that come together to make my photos what they are, on top of how I see and execute the editing. And then brought you along as I travel the world this year, making videos documenting shoots and learning lessons that are evolving in real time as I am. I’m constantly learning new things and why not share my new “ah ha’s” as I’m having them. I want to have real conversations about what I’m thinking and seeing, the problems I’m working through in sessions (because believe it or not, I still get crazy kids, grumpy dads, light that is a struggle bus and people who don’t take my advice on wardrobe).

I want to take you on a journey with me as you grow your business & the heart behind your work alongside mine. I don't just want to build a course, I want to build a relationship.

Then, what if we did seasonal Live Facebook Q & A’s where I can show some recent sessions that were a train wreck and how I still produced a solid storytelling gallery, where the client was happy (this is a bold statement, but knock on wood, that’s what will happen like it has in the past) or a fan favorite session and why it turned out great and how it came together and was edited. I think that could be pretty sweet myself in continuing support and education. Plus, I want it all to build off of each other to make something comprehensive, big and special by the year’s end.

But I’m also open to expanding content as we get into this. Why I’m doing all of this is because it’s a tangible way of helping other photographers step into their own light with my shortage of time, but overage of heart. I want you to have access to everything that makes my images and business what they are and why families fly across the world to book sessions or model for me. I’m incredibly grateful for where this journey has led me; to be able to share how and why and how you can too… It feels big. Important. Like a calling or a gift to share. And I’m just so dang grateful for it all and that you’re even here considering jumping in on this heart-led adventure, to learn and grow with me.

These things will only be available here as part of my  “All Heart Access”. Plus, like I said previously, I don’t want everyone to have their hands on these things. I want them to be special and help YOU – the person who sees the beauty and authenticity in my work and wants that in their own. I’ve never released anything like this and to this extent, so I hope it finds its way into the hands of the people who need it most.

THE DETAILS

Registration opens at 7 am (MST) on July 1 and closes at midnight (MST) on July 8 for the Summer Season Courses. Content will be available to view until June 30, 2021.

So let’s cover those x, y’s and z’s, because I don’t want to come up short on my promises and be clear about what’s included. Here’s what I’m giving… but I want to state here that I maintain the right to revise content as we get into this, if I feel something would be more beneficial to include or add in than what’s listed below.

** I reserve the right to revise season content as needed.

(this way the cost isn’t a gamble to see if you think it’s a good fit… if you’re loving it, you can continue learning in the next season and if you’re not, then you can exit. But I don’t think you will, because again – I want this to be a deep dive building off of each season).
