Thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for your interest in a mentorship with me. I am deeply honored that you view my work and business in such a way that you landed here. I consider it an incredible privilege to be given the opportunity to earn your trust and to share in your journey. When working with me you can expect warmth and authenticity, and sincere forethought to ensure you walk away from your experience with a wealth of new knowledge, a deeper sense of purpose and direction, and actionable steps to achieve your business goals.
I feel so fortunate to be able to bring photographers that I work with a background in education paired with a deep love and passion for teaching and learning. This means I not only know WHAT to teach, but HOW to teach - an unexpected bonus to making a drastic career change from the world of education to that of photography!
Because everyones experience and needs are unique, I've created three different learning pathways for you to consider. Each of them offers a different type of education, but all come with my commitment to support and honor you. I cannot wait to connect!
Dear Fellow Artist,
Janet continues to be an amazing mentor, friend, and industry colleague.
Website & Portfolio Audit
One-hour Strategy Session
Full Mentorship Experience
I'll create a one-hour screen recording reviewing your website and image portfolio.
You'll receive helpful feedback about how to refine your online presence to attract your ideal client, consistencies (or inconsistencies) that I see in your portfolio and suggestions to refine your visual presence and better meet your professional goals.

As an educator, I was known for being "too invested" - putting long hours in after everyone else went home, checking in on students after they'd moved on, and more. Some people viewed this as a weakness, but I don't believe there's a such thing as being too invested in the things that matter most - people.
Relationships matter to me. Your success matters to me, too. My goal is to equip you and support you in reaching your goals. When you make the decision to invest in me, you can feel confident that the investment goes both ways.
To help you get started, below I'm sharing some of my favorite tools and resources for creating a seamless client experience and straight-forward workflow.

I took a huge risk and completely rebranded my business in 2020. It was at that time that I made the leap to Showit for web design. From the user-friendly interface, incredible design freedom, and fantastic customer service, I am so pleased with Showit and have not once looked back since making the switch!

Social media marketing is paramount to the success of my business but the truth is, I simply do not have time to keep up with it all. I manage my own social media, and that is only possible with the help of Social Templates Co. and their phenomenal reel templates service. Making reels is such a fast, seamless process - this service is worth every penny!
Operating a successful business is all about having systems in place that create a phenomenal client experience and allow me streamline the behind-the-scenes work so I can focus on what matters most to me - creating and connections. 17hats allows me to automate my workflow and stay organized, with all my important back-end processes in one place!
I use Pic-Time for my client galleries. I love the beautifully clean gallery interface, the easy-to-use upload process, and the biggest selling point for me - the online store. Pic-Time has an integrated online store that automatically creates a storefront using images straight from your client gallery. Trust me when I tell you, your sales will increase with Pic-Time!

Not only was the design process incredible, but these ladies helped me refine and develop my brand - and with that, the trajectory of my business.
I have been working with Sabine for years and hiring her early on was one of the best decisions I made for my business. Anytime I have a special photoshop request or need specialty editing done quickly and professionally, she is there for me.
Sabine also does regular photo outsourcing if you are interested in outsourcing all of your editing. I cannot recommend her more highly!
