Cultivate Workshop is a retreat-style workshop led by myself and Emily Magers for girlboss photographers looking to better their business, build community, and be inspired. So far we've held workshops in Portland and Palm Springs. We're excited for our next one in Nashville and will be announcing our fourth workshop in March which will take place Fall 2018!
A hands on, one-on-one, immersive experience, hosted in Oregon. You decide what you want to focus on. Personal workshops run about 5-6 hours.
A live shoot with models where we focus on shooting, posing, lighting, etc.
- getting in front of the camera
I'll snap some photos of you so you can experience what it feels like to be on the other side, as well as have some personal photos to take home
- post processing
We'll cover everything from work flow, editing, finding your style, backup, etc.
Anything you want to cover from pricing to contracts to taxes, you name it.
For those who aren't able to make it to Oregon. We'll spend time skyping and chatting about whatever you need help with, no matter where you are in the world! Skype sessions run 1-2 hours
Topics we cover may include (but aren't limited to):
- marketing / social media
- client interactions / how to get your clients comfortable
- pricing strategies
- how to book more destination weddings
- finding your style / building your brand
- booking your ideal clients
What's In My Bag

It is all automated, doesn't let you double book and sends clients reminders for you! Everything is in one place and organized. It has completely changed my business and I could not recommend it more! Sign up for a free trial, and get 50% off your first year below!
Getting Clients Comfortable
I always play music at my portrait sessions. It breaks the silence, helps everyone feel more comfortable, is a conversation starter, and most importantly - since I'm always giving my clients actions, it gives them a song to move to! Feel free to use the PHOTOSHOOT playlist I created on your shoot, or just listen to it while editing!
I like to send my clients wardrobe inspiration before their portrait session so that they feel prepared with some ideas, and I know they'll choose something that works great in photos (neutral colors, flowy, easy to move in, etc.) Click here for the board I send them if you'd like to pull ideas from it for your clients!
