CLIENT LOVE

“I cannot recommend Leslie’s mentoring session enough! As someone who has been doing photography for 5 years and finally wanted to branch out into my own company, I had so many questions on how to price my packages, how to establish myself in the social media world, and how to narrow down my ideal clients. I never knew where to start or how to achieve those goals, but Leslie helped me put my ducks in a row and guided me on all aspects of the business. She customizes your mentor session starting with an audit of your social media accounts and website, and from there she helps you navigate towards your goals. She is relatable, encouraging, a phenomenal photographer, and I highly recommend mentoring with her to learn more about the business. “

“It was so encouraging to have a mentorship call with Leslie! She keeps it real and keeps it fun. She does her very best to explain systems and techniques, and is open to answer most photography questions, whether that be the business side of things or the art itself! I’m very thankful for how organized she was and how much work she put in beforehand; like making a detailed questionnaire for me to fill out, and coming prepared to the call with notes on every topic we planned to go over. Thank you Leslie!”
