Grow from surviving to thriving as a photography business owner

Let’s get your business working for YOU, not the other way around.

you weren’t meant to work all the time

Let me help you create a life you love.

The life where you can balance what you love to do with income that will keep you refreshed and out of the burnout zone.

With over a decade in the industry and more awards and weddings in the books than I can easily count, I’d have lost my marbles ages ago if I hadn’t created kickass systems to help me keep my head on straight. I’m excited to bring you in on all the secrets I’ve discovered to running a successful photography business, all while prioritizing the people you love and not losing sight of why you do what you do.

Through business coaching, I’ll help you: 

Organize your systems

So you can drive your business hands-free (you need those hands for your camera!).

Curate an exceptional customer experience

Attract clients you want to keep. 

Get paid what you’re worth

Start generating more revenue with tangible heirlooms.

Free up time, energy, and resources

So you can focus on what you want to do, not what you have to do.

Aloha! I’m Angie

I combined my passion for photography with my background in education to connect you with the resources you need to thrive in the business game.

I’ve been at this for a long time – both in photography and teaching. Long before I said “yes” to the grand adventure of setting out for Maui with nothing but the love of my life, a suitcase, and my camera, I’d been teaching students how to fall in love with the arts for years. 

Now, with over a decade as a full-time Maui photographer under my belt, I use my skills as an educational professional to help fellow photographers like you make it in a competitive industry.
I’m an enneagram 3w2 – so I’m an achiever, and I love helping others achieve as well. Seeing you thriving in supporting yourself and your family while doing what you love – that’s what I live for as a business coach and create my education for photographers services.

Working with Angie has been transformative for me and my business.

In each coaching session, she was able to provide me with insight, direction, and a plan that I was able to implement immediately. She had answers to all of my questions and I left every meeting educated, confident, and inspired. Angie knows her way around the industry and is a true professional. Totally worth the investment!”

questions? Bring them on!

I no longer offer shadowing as a free service. I have worked tirelessly for a long time learning the ins and outs of what it is I do – I can’t give that education out for free. Thanks for understanding!

These are Zoom calls that are offered 2x a month to focus on problems you are having in your business. Clients who choose to work with me are driven, passionate, and can meet deadlines (yes, I give homework!)

I am currently not offering flash workshops beyond one-on-one training for photographers getting to know their equipment. If you’re interested in learning flash one-on-one with me, please fill out the inquiry form below and we can get started

The awesome thing about being self-employed is that you get to decide. You get to decide what to invest in, and you don’t have to ask anyone’s permission. Work-life balance for you and long-term growth for your business? I can’t think of a single better decision to make. 

Get in touch through the contact form below so I can learn how to help you get where you want to go. I’ll be in touch so we can schedule a Discovery Call to confirm we’re a good fit. I can’t wait to see how we can build your business together.
