Being a full time photographer has brought so much to my life - I'm my own boss, I hang out with all types of amazing people, I get the perks of traveling AND working from home, and I almost always fall head-over-heels in love with my clients. Sometimes it’s hard to remember that I took a huge leap, leaving the safety of my day job while a chorus of critics (some of whom I love dearly) told me I was making a mistake.
With somewhere around 150 weddings and who knows how many family, engagement, and maternity sessions under my belt, I’ve learned quite a bit. Along the way, I’ve developed my personal style, honed my editing aesthetics, overcame performance anxiety, burned myself out, lit myself back up… let’s just say I have a few tips and tricks that I’m excited to share.
What you’ll get from a mentor relationship with me goes far beyond Canon vs Nikon and Lightroom hacks. Of course, I can nerd out on Lightroom flow for hours on end and I wear my love affair with both Sony and Nikon on my sleeve. But, at the end of the day we all want one thing - to consistently capture authentic moments. That’s my expertise. And, in my experience, that’s the key to booking clients.
So, whether you’re brand new to photography, want to grow an existing business, need to get out of an inspirational rut, or just want someone in your corner, I’m here for you with the following packages:
Pick My Brain - $100

“Learning under Hallie has been SO essential to my growth as a photographer. After struggling trying to do my own research, working alongside of Hallie has taught me so many things that the internet could never touch on and brought my knowledge up to another level. From her attitude and interaction with clients to her technical skills and editing she’s truly the whole package and that can be a rare find!

"Having Hallie on my side as a mentor has been such a privilege. She is incredibly knowledgeable and helpful. She is also great at taking time to really understand the questions I have and give thoughtful advice. Above all else, I love that she makes me feel like an equal. She is incredibly supportive and I feel so encouraged by her words. Anyone looking to expand and strengthen their photography skills would be so lucky to work with her." - Tara O
