“After (study abroad/coaching) there were immediate positive results and getting our bookings back in I have always felt comfortable with photography and the work involved in shooting weddings and sessions, but I have known for a long time that if I want to call myself a professional photographer I needed to get comfortable with the business side of things. Kristin helped me clear my head and prioritize the finer points of business as a photographer, and I instantly saw the improvement. My online presence is more cohesive, I am booking dream weddings and getting paid what I think I’m worth. A real bonus is the network of other photographers that Kristin coached that I have been able to connect with. I can float difficult questions to the group and everyone has their own experiences to offer, which helps me make my own informed decisions. Kristin’s coaching made this job feel a little less lonely and has certainly empowered me as a small business owner and I would highly recommend investing in yourself”

“After updating my portfolio and implementing some of the changes Kristin suggested, I really began to attract many more of my “ideal clients.” This year was my most fully booked to date, and I believe Kristin’s help has played a huge part in that. "

“I get SO stuck in my own head when I don’t have a community to bounce ideas off of, and this workshop was exactly what I needed to get out of my rut. Kristin has thought of everything - I was so impressed with how they handled even the little things. It was such an empowering and vulnerable week and I feel like I learned something totally eye-opening during every workshop we did!”

“Going on a Study Abroad trip was one of the best decisions I made last summer!”

"Kristin is the most warm and gracious host. When I travel with my family, I am always the planner - finding where we will stay and planning/booking all of the activities. On this trip, I just showed up and each day was filled with incredible adventures and down time too when we needed it. The balance between business focused workshops and activities was really nice too. I was feeling kind of sad when I got on the plane to leave because I had such a magical experience. I also felt really inspired, happy, and at ease. I wish I had found these trips sooner! I've already booked another and I am sure it will not be my last."
