After attending photography school I now have over 20 years in the photography industry, I have worked as an employee for photography studios, to setting up a full functional home studio to now a six figure full service studio.
I have invested in myself and been mentored by some of the best in our industry, also in business building and personal development.
In 2011 I had a nightmare divorce and my husband threw my youngest son and me out the door with nothing, we were literally homeless and penniless.
I started over from ground zero and I built a successful home studio.
I worked around my kid's schedule and worked from my home (featured on Sue Bryce Education studio tours).
Now I own a full-service studio in Carlsbad, San Diego since August of 2017.
I am proud to be part of Sue Bryce's education hand-picked support team. We help Sue in the Facebook Groups, Workshops, and at The Portrait Master Convention.
I can help you get started and avoid mistakes.
A lot of bad decisions and things that don't work that I experienced and can now teach you what to do and not do to save you time and money.
