You dream up big goals for yourself

But why does it feel like in order to have more, you have to sacrifice more?

You watch people on Instagram day in and day out who seem to have a thriving business that is bringing them their dream life... but it's not just their dream; it's yours too.

The ability to work and feel completely confident in each move they make, in how they show up, and still have what seems to be an endless amount of time for friends and family. It sounds too good to be true, but you still wish it could be true for you. 

You spend hours each day running in circles trying to keep up. From marketing your business, running consultations and managing an inbox, trying to hone in on your skills, delivery galleries, and be customer service... all while being a mom, dad, wife, husband, and friend. 

It's no wonder the burn-out rate is so high for photogs.

It's estimated that 60% of photographers give up their business after year one, and 25% more drop by the end of year three. 

Friend, that is one heck of a turnover rate. 

You want to know why it’s so high? Because for some reason, as an industry, we have adopted this idea that we can always outwork our way to the top. 

  • Just underpromise and overdeliver. 
  • Spend your excess profit on gifting your clients extravagant gifts. 
  • Spend excess hours of free time creating MORE touch points with clients and giving them pieces of your service for free. 
  • Answer your emails as soon as they hit your inbox. 
  • Edit every night after everyone in the house goes to bed to WOW your clients with fast turn-around times. 

We have become an industry focused so heavily on working FASTER, HARDER, and WITHOUT BOUNDARIES - yet, we wonder why the heck no one values our time or skills? 

It’s because we have wrapped our value up in how fast or hard we work for our clients, NOT in the complete confidence that you and your skills are enough value on their own. 

And while you value and crave your personal time, you also believe that one day when you hit your big goals, that personal time will suddenly become a reality. But, it doesn't work that way. 

Do any of these sound  like you?


You started your business with full confidence in yourself, but as your business grows, it feels harder to keep that faith in yourself.


You spend more time implementing new strategies that you continue to collect and borrow from others, but you have ZERO way to track what is growing your business vs not. 


You feel like you are in an echo chamber where everyone runs their business the same way and you have no idea how to break free of that.


You dream of breaking into a high-end market, but the only path you can think of to get there is outworking and serving MORE than others in your market.  

Most days, business and life are one big blur. 

We have become so bogged down by industry standards and flashy wins...

We have completely forgotten how to think for ourselves and make decisions that fuel our business and allow us to feel GOOD within our business.

We have forgotten how to trust ourselves to be the intuitive, confident, and self-reliant business owner we CAN be. 

Instead, we choose to blend in. Follow the crowd. Overwork ourselves. Refuse to color outside of the lines because being unique feels scary. And we end up trading our time for less money than we are worth... all because it is safe. 

We have begun to fear failure more than we crave success. 


Disrupt the Standard

It is time to create a new standard of running your business. One that is focused on fueling YOU and your ability to grow your business while purposefully making room to find a balance between work and life. 

I need you to understand that how you move in your business matters. 

Business is a place to experiment. To have fun. To push your boundaries and see what is possible. It isn’t a place to put yourself into a box and fear reaching outside of it.

What is outside of your comfort zone is the success that was meant for you. But you can’t access it unless you trust yourself to lead yourself there. 

...and that is what this program was created to do. To teach you how to MOVE inside of your business to be able to not only create a thriving business that YOU love, but also gives you freedom so you can live your life while working towards your goals.

You know that #goals photographer that you follow on IG?

You have spent hours watching and trying to disect their business to figure out what made them successful

... but, have you ever considered that it might not be WHAT moves they are making, but HOW they are making them?

The difference between you and them could be as simple as they choose to confidently make moves and create the business they dream of, even when it means coloring outside of the lines.

They choose to create a business that can thrive within smaller work hours in order to spend more time with family and friends.

They choose to show up and create an environment within their business that allows their confidence to not get rattled with every 'no' they hear from an inquiry. 

They chose to create a business where their strengths fueled their growth so they can confidently make moves.

They choose to put their value in themselves and know the worth of their skills vs whether or not people are booking. 


Yes, even your lack of time for family and the lack of confidence in the moves you make. 

In fact, those two things feed off of each other. Don't have time for family and friends, or just your life in general? Well, there is a good chance it is because your lack of confidence keeps you spinning your wheels.

You overthink your edits. Your IG posts. Your emails. Your pricing. Your portfolio and website. 

You are stuck in 'fixing' mode, and while you think you are making things better, you are probably just giving yourself more and more busy work that creates an idea that something must always be broken and 'fixed' within your business. 

Those who are thriving in their business and personal life didn't hit an income goal, and suddenly *poof * they had more freedom and confidence within their business. 

Instead, they chose to dial in on what they know is working and work within their zone of genius ... not just create non-stop busy work for themselves in the name of perfectionism. 

Because perfectionism is just a fancy word for lack of confidence. 

You say you want clients who value you and pay your prices, but you question your prices each time you hit the 'send' button.

You say you want clients who value your time and respect your boundaries, but your experience is built on how hard and fast you work.

You say you want clients who value your  industry knowledge and experience , but you always hide it away and only show it to paying clients. 

You say you want ( and need ) more clients, but you are already running in circles and can't keep up. 

You say you want a business that can move into a higher-end market so you can shoot less and make more, but you refuse to color outside of the lines to make it happen. 

You say you value your personal time and want to prioritize it, but you aren't willing to break free of the idea that you'll only see success by outhustling others.

no. 02

no. 04

Boundaries within Growth

Learn how to chase after your goals in a way that doesn't require you to sacrifice you personal life, health, profit, or your boundaries. If there is one reason to buy this program, it's for this training. 

I have been the person who gave up family time often to meet self-inflicted deadlines or stopped working just long enough to eat dinner, but my laptop was always within arms reach 'just incase'. I have been stuck on that hamster wheel of working so hard that you have no idea how, when, or where to pump the breaks and try to rein things back in. 

I have seen burn-out far too often not only in myself but in countless of my clients because in our industry, it feels as though you have to out-work, out-serve, and care more about your clients than anyone else to stand out and get ahead. 

But, that doesn't have to be your reality. I went from working 12 hour days, to working 4 hour days and spending the rest of the day with my family. I went from always putting my business first, to putting my family first and seeing my business grow as a result. I went from choosing to make my business hard by always feeling like I had to do more, to making my business run in the simplest form in order to make room for growth. 

Trust me, if a workaholic like myself can step back and find a way to grow my business with boundaries and putting myself first after years of hustlng 24/7 - you can too.  

You don't have to settle

It is not a standard that you have to accept. You don't have to be overworked and constantly putting clients first in order to grow your business and see real results.

Just because someone else is doing something doesn't mean it is how you have to do it. It is time to stop borrowing strategies to keep up and learn how to move in your business with clarity and ease.

Boundaries can look like a million different things to each person, so instead of just assuming that it's too hard for you to have the boundaries others have, let's find ways to create boundaries that are meant for YOU. You no longer have to sacrifice family time, profit, your health, or your sanity just to hit your goals.


You need to put yourself FIRST

Because when you can put yourself first, you get to show up in the best form of yourself to support your clients. 

When you put your needs first, you get to show up in the best form of yourself for your family - NOT just giving them what is left over after a busy day. 

When you put yourself first, you reach your goals faster because you work within your strengths and KNOW that each moment you spend working moves the needle forward. 

You are the foundation of your business


Is this for me even if I am newer in business? 

Heck yes! I WISH someone had walked me through this back in 2017 when I was running so fast trying to grow my business and hit big goals... this process would have saved me from months of burnout and frustration in my business. But, no matter if you are new in business or seasoned, this will help you grow your business in a way that is meant for YOU and not someone else's copy-and-pasted strategy.

These are trainings that I hope you revisit over and over again at each new stage of your business in order to constantly be checking in with how you are moving and if your business is aligning with the actions you are taking!  

Is this like a business course?

NOPE. This isn't about me telling you WHAT to do, it is about you learning how to show up in your business and thinking through each element of how you are moving within your business each day that is causing you to either grow or fall further behind. This is about you taking full control of your business and stepping into total confidence that you have a grip on your business and can balance your life with it. This is about setting boundaries within how you move to avoid your business taking over your life now and in the future.

To be honest, I have taken a plethora of photography business courses and NONE of them covered these elements inside of Disrupt the Standard ( hence why we call it that! Because it is not your standard photography course )

What can I expect inside?

You get lifetime access to 4 core trainings that walk you through how to show up for your business and yourself in a whole new way. In just over 3 hours, the way you show up within your business, for yourself, for your clients, and for your family can be drastically changed, and your business can go from feeling heavy to like you can breath and get excited to work again. 

in yourself is never a 


Especially when you feel like you are slowly losing yourself within the workload, pressure, and desire to keep up and do better. 

Let's rebuild your confidence in your ability to run a thriving business WHILE maintaining your life in the process.

Because you DON'T have to give up one in order to have the other.
