Looking for some one-on-one assistance to grow your photography business? I’d love to chat with you! Over the years, I’ve learned so much about photography skills, the ins and outs of our industry, and how to run a profitable photography business. 

When I started out, I wish I had had a mentor to answer all my questions and give me the inside scoop about the industry. If only I could get back all the hours I spent Googling in the early days of my photography career!

Whether you’re a budding photographer, or you’ve been in the industry for a few years… mentoring is a great opportunity to take your business to the next level.

let's get started!

i believe your business can be as purposeful as it is profitable


actionable education for creatives

So, what does mentoring look like? It's an opportunity to sit down together one-on-one and strategize for your business. I'm here to help support your goals. What do you envision for your business? Where do you want to see it grow?

Together, we'll identify current strengths, along with some areas where you might be able to grow or change course. We can focus wherever your needs are: whether that's pricing strategy to take your side-hustle full time, pivoting into a new aspect of your business, or booking your dream clients.

Let’s get started! I can’t wait to meet you and learn where your business is ready to go next.

You're building a creative business, but you know that there's still some room for growth. You've Googled your heart out and grabbed all the free business resources you can get your hands on... but there are still some questions left unanswered.

Sometimes, it's just easier to sit down face-to-face with someone who understands what you're going through! So let's schedule a mentor date and build your business together.

"I had the pleasure of attending a workshop that Laylee put together, and it really propelled my business forward. She is so sweet and full of energy that you just could not help but feed off her positivity. I thought I had a good handle on my business going into the workshop, but I left feeling enlightened and with a new group of friends who share similar passions. Her workshop was truly one of the highlights of my 2017, and I would not hesitate to participate in any of her future offerings."

"To know Laylee is to have an instant friend! Not just a sweet new friend, but the realist, most genuine and relatable soul sister that feels like you’ve known her for years! After experiencing The LEP Workshop I left with more than just beautiful portfolio pictures. Laylee instilled confidence, dropped practical + applicable education, and left me feeling inspired. I couldn’t be more grateful for her encouragement, friendship and keep it real-ness!

"Last fall I attended Laylee’s La Reverie Workshop. I was hoping to pick up a few small tidbits of helpful information for my photography business, but I left with pages and pages of ideas and inspiration. I cannot tell you how inspired I was by Laylee. She was so organized, willing to answer any questions we had, and wise. Her love for photography and people truly shines through. I left that workshop with tangible ways to make better use of my time, new ideas for posing, and improved social media strategies. I will forever be grateful for this workshop!

"I am so thankful that I invested in education with Laylee! Not only did I receive guidance and valuable education to grow my business, but just as importantly, I received a friend. Her passion for teaching and for genuine community radiates from her! After attending her workshop, one of my images from the styled shoot landed me a finalist ranking in the Shoot and Share photo contest - my highest placing image to date! Another win was booking an ‘ideal bride’ for the next year. If you have the opportunity to attend a workshop, retreat or mentoring session - do it!

I believe you can run a heartfelt and profitable business, by building connections that mean so much more than income ever will.

I don’t have all the answers (wouldn’t that be nice!), but I’ve learned a lot along the way and I’m an open book. As a former high school teacher, I have a huge heart for educating others. I’m not afraid to dig into tough topics or share my experiences—the good and the bad. I want you to feel confident in your ability to make a difference and make a living doing what you love. 

Whether you’re just starting out as a new photographer, or you’re seeking that next level in your creative business… I’m here to encourage you, lift you up, give you my honest advice, and equip you with the resources and support you need to achieve your goals.
