Learn to create powerful images

filled with emotion and depth


 Artists do this funny thing.

We take something we love, monetize it, and share it with others.

From here, it's easy to start creating to impress an invisible audience and confuse arbitrary like counts as a metric for what our art is supposed to look like to find success.

Next thing you know we're running on a hamster wheel churning out work we don't even like and stressed about content planning to reach more clients to hire us to make MORE work we don't like so we can continue uploading it into an endless scroll of sameness.

     • Do your bones actually ache to create something that takes your breath away?
     • Feel like you're overwhelmed with creating work you don't even care about?
     • Are you yearning to create images that feel uniquely yours and stand out from the rest?
     • Tired of scrolling feeds looking for inspiration but flare up your imposter syndrome instead?
     • Do you attract clients that just want to pose and smile at the camera and tell YOU what to do at the shoot?

These feelings of creative desperation mean you are at the very cusp of transformation and I'm not letting you get stuck there.

Thankfully, that's not our path and if the following questions resonate we have a walk to take together.

My approach to photography, creativity and posing is designed to connect you to a knowing deep within that empowers you to bring that heavy stirring in your chest to life.

I created this course to share my methodology to teach you to combine mood, atmosphere and the essence of YOU to create an emotional aura around your work that is unmistakably yours.

We'll cover:

     • Where I look for emotive inspiration, how I take action and transform it.
  • How I communicate with clients before the photography session to gain creative trust, style wardrobe, and set expectations for a more effortless photoshoot.
     • Posing prompts and direction that channel more emotion from anyone
     • Flexible posing flows and frameworks that allow you to be fully present in the moment
     • The art of faking it when the connection feels forced
     • How to tweak any pose to intensify emotion and connection
     • Strengthening your storytelling ability
     • How to discover your unique style of creativity

Along with a month of daily prompts and discussions, you'll get 8 additional weeks of access to a private online community, where we'll hold discussions, critiques, and you'll have ongoing support from your peers to make sure you are able to put everything you've learned into action!

All course material - including videos, worksheets, text, and images,
are available online.


Say goodbye to posing and say hello to trusting your inner wisdom to direct with prompts into authentic interaction.

We will cover:
     • Where I look for inspiration to create raw, emotive moments.
     • How I follow through on inspiration sparks to create original work.
     • How I infuse storytelling into my sessions to engage clients.
     • The prompts I actually use to create connections.

You will also start the process of journaling to gain clarity around your creative vision and purpose.

The Muse


The Art of Noticing

Effortless and authentic posing does NOT mean going in without a plan. You’ll still want to think about all of the possible pairings and prompts to ensure that each relationship has a moment of focus where you can be intentional behind your lens and capture authentic engagement and connection.

Being acutely aware of the connections we have with each other will help you to guide your clients into situations where these connections are allowed to unfold organically.

We’ll discuss:
     • Prompts for various groupings from single subjects to families and children of all ages
     • How to visualize and direct for the emotions you wish to capture
     • How to ensure everyone is at ease and in the moment
     • The art of noticing
     • How to foster an environment that encourages connection without direct prompts from you


This is a course about posing! Why are we talking about client wardrobe and communication?

A crucial aspect of feeling free to guide clients into emotive scenarios while remaining as in the moment as possible is to prepare before the session.

The time and thought you put into preparation ensures you all share the same vision and can collaborate to bring it to life with a lot less stress.

Learn how I:
     • Communicate with clients to gain creative trust
     • Style the session for impact
     • Manage expectations for a more effortless photoshoot

Curating the Experience


Power of Mindset

Prompting your clients into emotive scenarios doesn’t mean mechanical posing and reading from a list of poses you prepared beforehand. If you set the groundwork properly, and get your clients in the right frame of mind before a session, you'll be more effective at creating a flow of connections.

We'll dig into:
     • Mindset and mental tools to overcome hesitation to direct
     • Strengthen confidence in your abilities and vision
     • Learn how to create beautiful stories in each session

You’ll finish feeling confident that you can create magic and capture emotion anytime, anywhere.


I'm going to take you on a stroll through my brain. Join me as I talk you through my thought process and you'll see how I:
     • Anticipate emotive scenarios
     • Find inspiration in my environment
     • Plan, direct and prompt the flow of the shoot in the moment

You'll see there is no room for a shot list as inspiration floods in and every moment inspires the next. We'll explore the art of building connections over and over again and how to make the most of every scenario to capture a wide variety of emotions and unique shots from the same pose.

You’ll see how I interact with clients and how my approach changes based on what the client needs to hear to help me fulfill my vision.
