the profitable photographer

I help photographers make more money.

Hi, I'm Melissa and I help photographers make more money by creating a sustainable blueprint for success.

It is possible for you to have the dream business and life you want because I have been doing it myself for the last 25+ years. And I have been coaching photographers just like you that want dependable, consistent income with out the stress and overwhelm.

It is my mission to show you step by step how to create an abundant and inspired business that runs like a well oiled machine. This rewarding business can be created with strategy, principles and practices that consistently drive sales and create profit.

to help you be AS successful as YOU WANT TO be.

Are you winging it right now - making the business side of things up as you go along? Cobbling together pricing, policies and you don't have consistent messaging? No idea how much money you are really making? and even more importantly, you don't know how much money you are actually keeping? Are you ready to professionalize your photography business once and for all?

Together we will use the tools and resources to figure out where your business is now and where you want it to be. How to set up a business that will succeed. How to scale a business that will sustain you and the life you want. I promise that you are going to amaze yourself with the results you create.

and how avoiding them can help you create and sustain a more profitable photography business

Over the years, I have seen countless photographers wonder why their photography business wasn't as successful as they would like. Because I had made many of these mistakes along the way, I can now see what could have been done differently so clearly. If these photographers had known these 4 mistakes to avoid, working within and on their photo businesses certainly would have been less of a struggle.
