guided sessions

Eight years ago, I was broke and broken and tired and overwhelmed.

I had recently moved to California and was starting a new career after being a high school English teacher in Chicago. The sheer mountain of knowledge that was needed to get my business on its feet was staggering and overwhelming. 

Through trial, error, and education, I have gained the skills to grow my business tenfold and build a brand that has allowed me creative and financial freedom.

real world applications to the hard topics

It's one thing to read about how to do something, but it's an entirely other thing to hear how to apply it to *your* business. I am here to help you personalize your business and make it work for YOU.

"I'm three months into Kathleen's mentorship program and I can honestly say I have experienced tremendous growth!"

sam jump started her business in three months!

"During her coaching sessions we have covered editing consistency, CRMs, blogging, SEOs, marketing, social media, posing and so much more. It's been so helpful to hear exactly how to apply these things, specifically to the type of photography business I am doing. The amount of growth I have experienced over the last 3 months is very apparent! My images and editing have improved, my social media captions are personal and really tell my image's story, I'm feeling so much more confident, and I HAVE CLIENTS! I have been working my butt off and Kathleen has been here guiding me, encouraging me and cheering me on! I've been on the verge of happy tears for the last few weeks because I am so proud of the progress I've made.
