Just starting out or want to grow your business and don't know where to begin? I've been in your shoes. I started this little biz over 10 years ago and man it has been an adventure! I went from $100 photo shoots to building a 6-figure photography business in one of the most saturated markets in the industry. I learned the importance of branding, niching down, how to create an incredible client experience and market it to my ideal client (most of the time from across the Pacific Ocean!) so that every booking is a dream job.

Now I love helping others do the same!

My mentor sessions are like mini workshops customized just for you. The booking form questionnaire allows me to get to know you and your business, and I will check out your IG and website ahead of time so we can hit the ground running as soon as our call starts.

Come prepared with questions and get ready to take notes! Nothing is off limits during these sessions. Learn how to book your dream clients, create an unforgettable experience, charge your worth and more! Sessions typically last 2 hours and take place on the island of Oahu or via Zoom wherever you are.

“Chelsea is the freakin BOMB!!! Not only is she super fun and easy to talk to, but SHE. KNOWS. HER. STUFF. And is so so knowledgeable about all things business.

The changes she suggested to make on my website were things that I never even thought of and will be game changers for not only my website but for my business as a whole. 100% recommend her if you’re looking to up your business game! Seriously, you won’t regret it.”

"Chelsea has taken over 10 years worth of business tools and strategies and helped me implement those methods within my own business. I have learned the importance of blogging, SEO, key terms and how to use them appropriately. This was a game changer!! I wasn’t getting clients from Instagram and needed a different source to bring in clients. 
What felt like a saturated industry at first has now become a clear vision and direction of where my own business is headed.

Chelsea leads by example. She is proof that being true to yourself and showing up on social media with this branded identity will absolutely attract your dream clients and unlock your highest potential. 

Chelsea is kind, encouraging and has such a bright personality to keep me on track and figure out where we need to put my energy and focus."

"Before our session, I felt that I had been running through this endless marathon with my photography business. Now that Chelsea has helped me, it’s a whole new world with my business and the clients I’m bringing in.

The way she explained SEO for my website was mind blowing, and my jaw just dropped when she started showing me all the little tweaks I could do on my website to reach more clients. She didn’t use any complicated terms, or fancy words to explain SEO but rather gave me actionable and easy steps to follow.

She holds nothing back, and is super transparent with all her knowledge because she really cares. I’m so grateful that I got my mentor session with Chelsea, and I have been recommending it to everyone else that is looking to take their business and brand content to the next level.
