You've invested in a nice camera and you've gotten pretty good at taking pictures for family and friends... and maybe you've even started charging for your work.

But you  feel like an imposter and you're not sure if anyone will take you seriously as a professional photographer. Not to mention there are already so many other photographers in your area.

Plus you have no idea how much to charge and how to fill your calendar with the perfect clients to actually make a profit. 

In fact, you're starting to feel kind of overwhelmed at the idea, and you wonder if you actually have what it takes to do this. 

Nodding along so far? Then I'm so glad you're here, because you're definitely in the right place!  I've been there and I'd love to help you do this!

Does this sound like you?

I used to be in your shoes... frustrated, overwhelmed, and getting nowhere trying to turn my passion into a business. My background was in medicine (I knew nothing about photography besides that I liked taking pictures), and I had two young kids at home. But I was craving a creative outlet... and maybe even a business of my own. 

I spent YEARS doing allllll the things... watching random YouTube videos, downloading freebies trying to piece together information, taking on every session that came along, and pricing my sessions way too low because I felt like my work wasn't good enough yet. 

Then something clicked and I realized that if I was going to be successful, I would have to invest in myself and get serious about stepping into the identity of a photographer. I took courses, attended workshops, and hired a photography mentor. And I slowly discovered what worked and what didn't. 

Over the past 10 years, I've built a successful photography business... without giving up precious time with my family.  I've taken everything I've learned on my journey and put it into The Path to Photography because I wish I would have had all of this in one place when I was first starting out! You don't have to figure it all out on your own! And your dream of running a successful photography business IS possible!

I've been there too... chasing my dream while chasing my kiddos and trying to balance alllll the things!

You deliver an amazing client experience from start to finish that leaves a great impression and she raves about you on her social media posts.

You have a ton of new content for your own social media, and a beautiful website set up, so that when people click over to your page, you truly stand out above the crowd.

You flip open your calendar and see that the next 3 months are filled with sessions... you're so excited because you know that your branding and messaging are attracting your perfect clients!

You have a streamlined process for sending over the contract, invoice, and a questionnaire. This makes you stand out as a professional (and it's automated so it doesn't waste hours of your time).

You open your email and find a new message from your dream client saying that she loves your work and wants to book a session. You respond confidently with your pricing info and next steps, and she immediately picks a date. 

IMAGINE THIS...

You can turn your love for photography into a profitable business, even if you don't have years of experience or a ton of free time!

Guess what?

All of that CAN be your reality... you just need a roadmap on how to get there!

In the next 30 days, you could launch your own business on a solid foundation and be making money doing what you love!

The Path to Photography

Get everything you need inside

Doubt kills more dreams than failure ever will

Yes, this is what I've been looking for!!

This is the not so fun, but super important, part of launching your business. We'll talk about how to make your business legal so that you can have peace of mind that everything is taken care of. (And the sooner you set this all up, the better!)

I'll cover how to register your business name, and structure your business (LLC, sole proprietorship, etc). We'll also talk about paying sales tax, business insurance, contracts, and more. Having this all set up correctly from the beginning will save you so many headaches and potential problems down the road.



I'll help you develop a marketing and branding strategy that works for you. By the end of this module, you'll have a understanding of how to create a brand that is uniquely YOU, and that is more than just a logo. This will help you attract the right people so that you can actually turn leads into paying clients! I'll also walk you through how to create an amazing client experience, from that first inquiry to beyond gallery delivery! This will keep your clients coming back to you over and over again, and generate the word of mouth referrals that are like gold! We'll also dive into social media and so much more!
Really nailing your marketing and branding is how you can keep your calendar full of happy clients!


Finally, I'll help you create a website that makes you stand out as a true professional and draws the right clients to you! Social media is great... BUT if you build your entire online presence with only a Facebook or Instagram following, you could likely find yourself in a puddle on the floor one day when those platforms accidentally delete your account and you're left with no way to connect to your people!  I'll walk you through exactly what you need on your website to turn viewers into paying clients, along with some strategies to make sure potential clients are actually finding you online when they do a google search.  You don't have to spend a ton of money on a website designer... this is something you can do yourself. And with the right guidance, you'll have a beautiful website set up in less than a week!

module TWO: PRICING

module THREE: MARKETING and branding

module FOUR: BUILDING YOUR WEBSITE

In this module, we'll take the stress out of pricing. I'll walk you through several in depth spreadsheets so that you can set your prices based on your actual numbers. And I'll show you multiple different options on how to meet your own revenue goals. Spoiler alert: I don't think there's one best way to set your prices. We are all unique and our businesses should be too!  But there are some pricing strategies you can use that will make a HUGE difference in how much you can make!  And by thinking like a business owner instead of an artist, you'll finally feel confident in charging what you're worth! 


module ONE: SETTING UP YOUR BUSINESS

Here's what you'll learn:

"Kristen's mentorship program has been an absolute game-changer for me. Transitioning from a hobbyist to a professional photographer felt daunting, but Kristen's guidance was exactly what I needed to gain confidence and clarity. The modules were not only easy to follow but tailored perfectly for visual learners like myself. What truly set this course apart was Kristen's accessibility and personalized approach. The ability to add on one-on-one video calls made the experience incredibly personal, and her feedback was filled with wisdom and encouragement. With Kristen as my cheerleader, I felt empowered to take the leap into this new adventure. I can't recommend her program highly enough for anyone looking to establish their photography business with confidence."    - Felicia

Your business is licensed, you have a real website set up, you're confident in your pricing, and you know how to market to your audience

Still can't decide?

THIS IS FOR ME!

This IS definitely for you if...

It's probably NOT for you if... 

Sometimes our brain tries to talk us out of things because it’s safer to stick with what we know... The 9-5. The steady, reliable job. And so we can come up with all of the reasons not to invest in ourselves. "I’m too busy. The kids are too little. This isn’t the right time. Who am I to do this?" 

I hear you, and I know what that voice can sound like. Because I’ve been there. But several years ago, I chose to take the leap and listen to my gut, and it has MORE than paid off. 

I would love to walk alongside you as you create your own business! Just imagine where you could be in 2 months if you had a plan to walk you through everything you need to do.  Are you ready to finally make this happen?


In 2 months you could look back at this moment and think "that's when everything changed"

Don't let fear hold you back
