You know you need photos for your website, your social media, your Stories, and newsletters but for some reason haven't started?
This course helps you do this!
Why I created this course as a non-photographer:
I created this course because in my personal experience as a blogger I needed a lot of photos but guess what? I didn't have a big budget for that. I didn't even know anything about photography and didn't have an Instagram husband (🙈). Worse, when I finally bought my DSLR, I didn't even know where to begin. I mean, what photos do I take? Me sitting in a boat or at a table?? how should I look, where should I look, what do I do with my hands??! and also can someone help me because I don't have the body of a supermodel!
Now, after 10 years+ creating my own photos in-house, using what I have (mostly my Iphone, and since then I upgraded to a Fujifilm XT3), wherever I am (I'm a nomad changing locations every 3 months or so). As a minimalist, I have learned to get creative and resourceful using what I have - and still be on-brand and attract my ideal clients through my photos. Mostly, I get to remain myself - that is not the super babe in killer heels and glam mansion, but still managing to have beautiful photos in elegant surroundings using my minimal capsule wardrobe and barely any makeup.
This course is my years of trying different things to find out what works combined in a simple framework for you. Over the years, I learned to get faster at creating imagery, I also learned to be on-brand, and how to convey my mission and message in my photos that would attract the right people - those I wanted to serve.
I also didn't want to always have to style my home or book a chateau to be able to create photos. I didn't want to have to book 4-5 different people (MUA, photographer, retoucher, hairstylist, etc) to have about 10 photos when I needed 30 for my Instagram!
What's in it for you?
As a small business owner, you want to focus on the most important things you love doing, and at the same time churn out A LOT of photos effortlessly (yes it's possible, I'll show you my process).
If you're like me, you probably want to have a folder full of photos handy that you can use for your brand, blog, or business, you want to get this done in a simple way and quickly, you don't want to waste time with this - then this course is for you.
This course gets you started with a series of photos that you can use in various ways - on your Instagram Stories, for your Facebook banner, for your Instagram posts, for Reels, for your website, your About page, for your eBook or the inside cover of your guide.
Most importantly, it's about creating the type of photos that are authentic to you. None of the made-up photos that show you're a business woman but don't make you feel comfortable. This course helps you create photos that reflect your own style and personality.
