you love your business and dream of more success...

But, Some days you feel like your business has taken over your life. 

But, Some days you feel like your business has taken over your life. 

In fact, the idea of having a 9-5 sometimes seems like a simple option that'll give you your life back. 

Yep, I know that feeling →

You have Big goals that you know you can achieve 

But why does it feel like in order to hit those goals, you have to always 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.

Their ability to work in a way that seems balanced, how they show-up is clear and effective, and they seem to have plenty of leftover time for friends and family. At this point, it almost feels too good to be true as you drown in a to-do list 5 miles long with no end in sight. 

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 photography skills, delivery galleries, and being the head of customer service... all while being a mom, wife, and friend. 

Did you know the turnover rate for our industry is 85%?

It's estimated that 60% of photographers give up their business around one year, 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. 

While many of us value and crave our personal time

While many of us 

You deeply believe that one day, when you hit your big goals and ideal income, personal time and sense of work-life-balance will suddenly become a reality. But, it doesn't work that way. If you don't make your personal time a priority while building the business of your dreams, your business will just keep taking over. 



Our personal time


Do any of these sound  like you?


You started your business with full confidence in yourself,  but as time goes on, it feels like each move and decision feels harder and harder because more is on the line. 


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 everyone runs their business in the same way, but also the idea of breaking the mold and color outside of the lines feels like too much of a risk right now. 


You dream of breaking into a high-end market, but the only path you can think of to get there is to keep doing MORE - but how the heck do you fit more on your schedule?

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 by putting ourselves first.

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 the success we were made for. 


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 unlock it unless you trust yourself to push the limits others have made up along the way. 

...and that is what this program was created to do. To teach you how to MOVE inside of your business and unlock the expert that you are in order to fully trust yourself to create a business that is set-up to thrive without always feeling like you have to choose the "work harder" route.

“I didn't think it would be worth it. It was. I didn't think it would work for me. It did. I didn't think I'd be *that* success story. I am. ”

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.

The Trainings

no. 01

Disconnecting from Results

Tired of feeling like your business drains you emotionally and like every 'no' is a direct statement against you?

no. 02

Identifying your Limits

Whether you realize it or not, if you are running in circles each day and can't seem to ever catch-up, you have hit your limit and you don't have room for more growth. If you want to have space to hold more, we need to make room for it. 

no. 03

Magnify Your Results

Most people have no idea what exact to-do list items are moving their business forwards vs wasting time. It is time to identify what areas in your business are working in order for you to press the gas pedal and speed up your results. No more wasting time on tasks that don't produce cash! 

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 taking inventory of how 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.
