I've been where YOU are & I know how hard it is to step out into the business world without investing in yourself first. I've spent over $6.000 in education alone. It wasn't because I had that money laying around, but because I care enough about my business that I cared to invest in it. I’ve learned a lot in my years as a photographer, and now, I want to share those lessons with YOU.
I offer one-on-one MENTOR SESSIONS. Whether it's a face time or a coffee shop session, we will sit down and discuss your business and how to achieve your photography goals!
“HOW CAN WE EXPECT OUR CLIENTS TO INVEST IN US, IF WE CAN'T INVEST IN OURSELVES”
WHAT CAN WE COVER IN A SESSION?
+ finances: how much it COSTS to keep a photography business rolling, how to start bank account. taxes & much more

for 1 hour
of session time
if you're sitting on many questions like: "what gear is perfect for me? Should I upgrade?" or "how do i even begin learning manual mode?!" this session may just be the answer you've been dreaming of!
This session focuses on answering many and all the questions you may have without getting caught up on all the details.
learning a more in depth view of a subject of interest. Perhaps it's your dream to jump into full time photography and wish for a detailed overview on how to to even begin or maybe you're struggling getting those emotional photographs you've been hoping to capture since you first picked up your camera.
Pick the subject & I dive in with a more detailed approach. Questions will also be answered in this session.
for 2 1/2 of session time
I like to look at this package as an "all inclusive package." This will essentially mean that we grab coffee or a meal and chat about alll the things you have questions about, and then we will go SHOOT!! I will style a shoot based on what you're looking for and you can join in shooting, or just watch, or both!
Following that, we will go back to a coffee shop and you can watch and learn my post processing routine and even how I edit!!
as long as it takes.
WHAT THE PEOPLE ARE SAYING:
I felt a sense of being valued from Elisa. I could tell she genuinely cared about me and my growing business and 100% wanted to help me and push me forward. Never did I get the feeling she was doing any of it for her own benefit. I also felt like she leveled the playing field so to speak. She did not talk down to me but treated me as an equal and that really helped me in turn to be comfortable and open.
Elisa gave me mainly practical ways and tools to reach my goals and level up my business. I feel so much more confident and can see a direction to follow now. Also it is such a huge assurance to know that I have another photographer that’s rooting for me and believes in me. It’s such a simple thing but so powerful!
