With a decade of math education experience, both in the classroom and online, I’ve developed a set of skills that I am so excited to bring to the photography space. Join me to learn to consistently capture authentic moments in camera and build a business of your own.

I LOVE TO TEACH

I'm a full-time math-teacher-with-a-photography-side-hustle turned full-time photographer-with-a-math-side-hustle.
My, how things have changed!

But through it all, one thing has remained
the same.

Erin

When I think back on my time with Erin, I feel so grateful that she reached out to me when I was searching for a business coach. A lot of the photographers I spoke to wanted to sell me a magic formula and I wanted someone to walk with me and show me step by step on getting started. Erin did just that.

THANK YOU, Erin! Because of working with you, I have a new confidence in what I am doing as a photographer. If you are considering coaching with Erin, take the leap of faith. You'll walk away more confident as a business owner and with a friend to cheer you on.

When I think of a teacher or coach, I think of someone who motivates, inspires, and encourages. Erin does all of those things! Erin helped me with auditing my website. She gave constructive criticism and great advice for my portfolio and investment pages. It was so helpful and elevated my website 100%!! I highly recommend her as a photography educator to anyone that needs one on one mentoring.

I was dreading social media posts for my sessions. Erin offered reel and sneak peek templates that made posting so much more enjoyable! The easy to use Canva templates offer a variety of graphic page designs allowing me to quickly drop in my photos (or videos) and have a post for each of my clients sessions! These templates really made posting to social media a breeze.

KIND WORDS FROM SWEET FRIENDS

  • A complimentary consultation call to ensure we're a perfect fit
  • One 90-minute call or five 1-hour calls, depending on your package choice
  • A custom workbook with pre-session homework and a place to take notes during our calls
  • Priority email access for questions in between sessions and up to one month after our final call
  • One 30-minute follow-up call after our final session
The best part of teaching for me is getting to know my students. I want to know your strengths, your wins, and your biggest goals. You may have a lot of work to do to get where you want to be, but I will break it down into manageable steps and will be there cheering for you every step of the way.
