... in need of guidance and an empathetic mentor to give me confidence along the way. Online courses left me with more questions than answers and zero support.

Since starting my business in 2017 as a weekend warrior to traveling nationwide as a full time equine photographer, I'm ready to teach and cheer you on towards your professional goals.

You shouldn't have to do this alone.


my teaching philosophy...

Pre-recorded online courses do not speak DIRECTLY to you and your goals.
Your business is unique because YOU are unique, and you deserve education tailored to your personality, goals, and boundaries.

Each of my students receives advice based on the specific concerns they have. Using my 6 years as a professional equine photographer, I guide each student with empathy, kindness, and first hand experience.

I'm not just your mentor... I'm your cheerleader, sounding board, and friend.

I don't believe in "cookie cutter" education.

"Bethany gave me the push I needed to get re-motivated. She was encouraging, attentive, and helped come up with ideas to strengthen my business. I loved our mentor sessions so much, I bought another set of sessions! Bethany tells you what you need to hear, is empathetic, and relatable. I would recommend a mentorship with Bethany if you're brand new in business, or if you're a seasoned photographer. Bethany has the skills to help all experience levels."

"Studying with Bethany helped me get down to the nitty gritty details of my business and discover how to use my artistic ideas in my photoshoots and business. She is clear, concise, and always has a response that I could then work on later in my own time. Bethany is always encouraging, and someone who is always on your team. Whenever I have questions, I have peace knowing there is someone kind, who understands me, and has experienced the same situations."

"Bethany made an overwhelming situation feel attainable by breaking down the various tasks and setup processes into easy to manage pieces. Having Bethany as my mentor from the start of my business allowed me to implement a strong, well-defined foundation that otherwise would have taken several years to create on my own. I no longer feel scared of the unknown. I am confident that I have the tools and knowledge needed to build a successful business."

"Observed sessions" are exactly as you imagine - you'll be observing me as I conduct and execute a shoot while I provide full explanations of my decision making process. "Guided sessions" put you in the driver's seat shooting alongside me with myself providing gentle correction and affirmation throughout the shoot.

What is an observed session vs. guided session?


Sessions must be used within 3 months after purchase to ensure I'm able to accommodate all incoming students. Please note all fees are nonrefundable. 

Do sessions expire?


Yes. All business students should have at least a year's experience as a legal photography business. All shooting students should have a working knowledge of how to shoot in MANUAL mode on their camera and basic Photoshop skills such as masking and layering.

Are there experience requirements for your students?


Because there are so many elements of shooting that are better understood during execution, I only mentor shooting and editing during my in-person 1:1 mentorships. My virtual mentorships only cover business coaching elements.

Do you teach shooting online?


Virtual mentoring sessions are conducted via Zoom. In-person mentorships happen in Columbia, Missouri or Elkton, Maryland. Travel to Maryland or Missouri is your responsibility.
