What others are saying…
I have been using Jennifer’s coaching services to grow my photography and business in a new direction, in order to make capacity both financially and time-wise to enjoy the arrival of my first baby, and have a great work/life balance going forward. This coaching experience has been making a huge positive impact on both my work and life! Jennifer was a tremendous help in prioritizing my goals and hone in on my personality to determine a plan of action that uses my strengths and uniqueness to reach those goals. She’s been holding me accountable by helping me see how much progress I’ve made, which is incredibly motivating, and assists in continually adjusting the course of action for goals that have changed. Without her coaching, I no doubt would be overwhelmed, instead I feel empowered and successful despite a few set backs that typically occur. I believe what makes Jennifer’s coaching so unique and helpful for photographers is her gift of genuinely understanding people coupled with a true desire to help them, as well as her experience and knowledge in both business and photography.

When I started working with Jennifer, I felt so disorganized in my business goals. As the owner of a small business, I have many hats– accountant, SEO expert, Social Media manager and photographer, among others. I was feeling very overwhelmed and underproductive. Jennifer worked with me to determine specific goals for my photography business. Jennifer helped me to narrow down broad, overreaching goals into very specific steps to attain that broad goal.
Through our meetings, she guided me to devise a plan to reach the goals, thus, holding me accountable. Each plan was broken into little steps, which made it very much attainable.
Jennifer is not only a talented photographer, but gifted in her interactions with people. There is simply so much advice for small business owners online. Jennifer’s personalized approach worked well for me as she got to know me and my business. Her talent in relating with clients and helping them succeed is invaluable!

My head was a bowl full of spaghetti noodles before my coaching sessions with Jennifer. All of my ideas and thoughts were jumbled up together with no categorization or action plan. There were some fantastic ideas in my head, somewhere! I just had problems remembering what they were and where I put them. Jennifer’s coaching was like a professional organizer for my mind! Not only did she help me separate my “noodles” into nice and neat thoughts, she also taught me skills to organize my ideas in the future. Her coaching has transformed my thinking into an organized set of action steps that I can actually accomplish. I’m forever grateful to Jennifer for helping me take my business to the next level using the techniques she taught me. I highly recommend Jennifer’s coaching for anyone looking to take a big step forward with their own business goals
