and... market effectively to fill your calendar?

How would it feel to...

You know you need to charge more, but don't know how to get the clients that will pay your prices.

You LOVE taking photos and connecting with clients, but the back end is killing you.

You feel that maybe you really aren't good enough at photography to make it because it's all just so hard.

You edit at all hours of the night, and tell your kids "just a little longer!"

Tell me if this sounds familiar...

In 2008 I had my 2nd child, and I was obsessed with taking photos of my boys. I had just picked up a DSLR and I was HOOKED!  Soon friends were seeing my photos and asking me to take thier families' photos, too!  Naively, I launched a website and photography business and soaked up everything I could learn online. I made lots of mistakes, but persevered and grew along the way.  It was fun and hard and I was editing late into the night while my kids slept...

Fast forward a decade and I finally found my work smarter not harder system. I'm proud to say I've cultivated a six figure photography business since 2019, but it was a long road getting here! There are so many things I would do differently if I had to do it over again.

I'm familiar with your story because it was my story too!

Karen here!


Have you grabbed freebies, watched countless YouTube videos, watched posing tip videos, gone to styled sessions or mini workshops, and still feel like there is so much more to learn to really be successfull?  Do you worry that maybe you don't have what it takes? 

when you decided to become a photographer, did you realize you'd also be an accountant, photoshop wizard, web designer, marketing guru, sales rep...AND business owner?


Here's what's inside the program:


for family photographers

Fast Foward: a blueprint to six-figure success


a comprehensive blueprint for building a successful family photography business
 (and making time for your family)


The faster you upload, edit, and delivery your images to your client, the more time you have AWAY from your desk doing other things you love, too!  Module 3 covers all things culling, editing (in Lightroom and Photoshop), how to create your own LR presets, a new way to deliver your galleries, and minimizing your desk time.

precision editing: edit efficiently and cut down on your desk time

The best marketing is when your existing clients return again and again AND shout your name from the rooftops.  When you create a fantastic experience from start to finish, your clients will want to return and they will gladly share their experience with their friends. We will also dive into the elements that make your brand unique and have you stand out from your competition.  Included are guidelines for prompt responses from leads,  the pre-session experience, setting session expectations, delivering the gallery,  and what to say/expect after the session.

AN Experience your clients will rave about: the best marketing hack


When you take control of your session and produce consistent images at EVERY session, your confidence grows and your editing time is significantly reduced. We get our feet wet in the first module with some basics, covering the technical basics that should be second nature to you and how they impact your images.  We cover and review portfolios, session flow, lighting, taking control of the session from the booking through the session end, and posing tips.

IMAGES THAT SELL: Crafting images that earn what you are worth


intentionally created to be easy to understand

I was nervous about working with Karen because I normally hate speaking on the phone, but Karen made me feel comfortable immediately. She was so kind, and gave me really great advice and encouragement. She spent a lot of time helping me with the things I needed help with the most."

People are talking...


Karen is not only the kindest, sweetest individual you'll ever meet, but she's a 'heck' of a teacher. I will recommend her to anyone who will listen to me talk. She's patient and truly cares that you understand the information she's giving. She is well-organized, and I could keep up. I will definitely consider mentoring with Karen again!"


I met Karen when I was dreaming of becoming a photographer and didn't know where to start. She encouraged me to follow my passion and helped me obtain the tools to launch my business! I now have my own home studio and am so grateful for the foundation she helped me build to become successful!"

Having the blueprint for success right in front of you.  YOU don't have to keep doing this alone!!

I"ve always believed in community over competition.  There is plenty of room in the market for ALL the photographers!  I love teaching and encouraging.  I'm a mom to a special needs kid. I'm patient.  And I didn't go to school for photography. I'm a mom who became a photographer. I'm completely self-taught in photography, but spent years in sales and customer service so I had a bit of a head start in what it takes to run a business.

 And you know what? Being successful isn't just about taking great photos!  There's so much more. I tried lots of strategies in pricing, customer care, editing, and know it feels like it truly is a well-oiled machine! I have clients that come back year after year, and I get new clients each year, too.  What kind of person would I be if I just kept all that info I've learned to myself?  I'm an enneagram 2, and if you know much about enneagram, 2s are helpers. I WANT you to have the same success (or even better) than I have! I'll be cheering you on the entire way. And you'll get lots of opportunity to talk to me, not just learn from a few videos and then figure it out on your own.  We will do it TOGETHER!

This isn't a course that you buy and then never finish. I'll be there the entire way to make sure you implement all the strategies and ideas and move into Spring 2024 ready to THRIVE!

Why learn from me?
