Here, you’ll find a personalized photography mentorship program that is filled with service, artistry and sustainable practices for photographers with 2-4 years of experience.

The Philosophy Of This Photography Mentorship Program

The Act Of Creating,
Making It Yours

There is nothing else like the feeling of creating something that is your own — truly. This mentorship will help you do just that.

You deserve to have the knowledge required to produce highly-valued images, book weddings that you’re proud of and to ultimately run your business not just successfully, but with balance.

The Unexpected Parallels

From Violinist To Photographer

Teaching others is not new to Olivia. She spent years teaching violin, and sees many parallels to photography that she now applies as an educator. For both, the results are rooted in the preparation. With violin, it was being aware of how you stood, pointing your toes the right way and perfecting every placement all before the first note was ever played. She helps photographers feel just as intentional and poised, equipped to work with their ideal clients, and to feel at ease stepping into any photographic situation.

Calling on years of teaching experience and creative expression to deliver unique and applicable insights. Striving for technical perfection while infusing artistic connection.
