I shoot branding photography for the freedom seekers, the trailblazers and the entrepreneurs - and have worked with serial, 7 figure business owners from the CEO'S of BossBabe, to best selling Hay House authors and TED speakers.
My photography business has afforded me freedom of time, money and location, and now I help other striving photographers achieve the same via 1:1 mentoring and free teachings and trainings on my blog and through my emails.
As an Enneagram 4 wing 3, a.k.a The Individualist Achiever, I was definitely never meant for corporate life—nor did I even try it. In fact, shortly after I was assessed as dyslexic at the age of 8 years old, I began the journey of embracing my differences—choosing creativity over curriculum, pushing every boundary and breaking every rule.
When I left school I never wanted to answer to anyone else again, and I wanted to create success on my own terms—to me, that was freedom—so I decided to be a photographer.
But I've had to journey off the beaten path to get where I am.
I modelled and side-hustled to pay my rent and avoid getting employed. I accepted flights as payment, and travelled for just about anything. I gave photography assisting a go but felt the freedom leaving my bloodstream with every order and demand. But I stuck at it, googling my way through how to get clients, and building my network long before my net worth.
Fast forward to now, I am a fully-booked, world-travelling photographer who makes it her mission every day to capture the energy and essence of people's personal brands.
I'm also a photography educator, meaning I teach people how to build creative businesses that are profitable, sustainable, and afford them the FREEDOM they desire and deserve. That looks like financial freedom on the one hand, but also the freedom to wander wherever and whenever they choose.
One of the things I love most about my work is being able to travel a ton - my husband Alec and I as well as our huskies, Balto and Laika, are always off on adventures. Now we're in the middle of a long visa process to relocate to the U.S.
I'm a Gemini Sun and Virgo Rising.
I'm a communicator and collaborator. A typical Air sign who's always thinking and loves to be up a mountain. I'm usually split living somewhere between wild freedom and a really good spreadsheet. Most likely, I'm dreaming big and thinking deeply. I am sensitive to my core, cry at the site of an animal transporter, and intuit other peoples' (and animals') emotions far too easily.
I crave outdoors, especially the wide open spaces.
I constantly listen to either to music to slow my mind, or podcasts to sharpen it up. Obsessed with productivity hacking, health and healing, rituals and routines, learning all the facts, nourishing my body and travelling far and wide.
