Hey sis!

I'm Chelsea, and I'm STOKED that you are here! I see you - hustling hard and working every day to build your biz. After 10+ years of being a full-time photographer and dabbling in a little bit of everything, I've learned a lot.

For years I was terrified of niching down and raising my rates. I thought it would mean less job opportunities. But I felt lost and I didn't know how to stand out in my market. I was overworked, undervalued, and burnt out. Photography was starting to feel like another 9-5, and I was on the verge of quitting.

Instead of quitting, I changed the game. I owned what makes me different, I started saying "no" to jobs that didn't make me happy, and I learned how to position myself in my market so I could finally make more, and work less.

The result? I went from $100 photoshoots on Craigslist, to 6-figure years. I put everything I learned into a 4-step program that is going to transform how you market your business, and be a game changer for your life.

build a business around your life.
not the other way around.

Let's hang out on Ig

"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.
