firefly education

for family photographers

love what you do and how you do it. 

maybe you've been feeling a little stuck.

in the rat-race of people pleasing, unsatisfied or uncertain about your art, or not booking like you want to.

Deep down, you know you want this but it's so dang confusing - like a giant puzzle you can't quite crack. You know you have more in you, but you're having trouble breaking through the messy middle.

What if you stopped trying to do it all alone and tried a different route? 

imagine feeling more like this...

excited and confident stepping into every shoot



clear and organized with your workflows and offers


like you're
leveling up and becoming the boss + Artist you intended 

I’m a lifestyle family photographer and I've been learning about and working with families since my days as a teenager in the mall portrait studios - yea, we go waaaaay back. I made a pact to myself - (and the world) while my head was stuffed in an Easter bunny costume and standing creepily behind crying kids on a backdrop that as an artist, I'd do things differently. I've spent the last 20 years building a business I'm proud of. I love what I do and how I do it, and that's the gold I want to pass on as an educator, too.

With a masters degree in education, I’m equally obsessed with helping other photographers cut through the clutter and feel on fire about their work - both behind the camera and behind the desk.
