Let me guess...you love photography (I do too)! You have an amazing camera, you love sharing your pictures, and your friends and family love them too. But you're stuck in the mini session world where you feel tired, stressed, overwhelmed with editing, and you know you still aren't making enough to make this a sustainable career. You are honestly thinking about applying for that full time job that you couldn't wait to leave (or you are still there). This is a very normal beginning, I've been there, and that's why I'm here to help!
It really is true...there really is a new and different way for you to make your photography studio profitable.
It's called IPS...and it's very different from the "shoot and burn" method you're likely familiar with... because it makes you, and your photography business, profitable by selling artwork. And as you'll see, it is super easy to implement, and this will change your business at your very first ordering appointment.
Best part of all, it doesn't require you to be sales-y or fake... and, you can make more $ regardless of whether you are a little intimidated of the whole process, or just not sure on how to do this. That's why I'm here... to teach you everything you need to learn and guide you every step of the way!
If you want to make your photography studio profitable, this group mentoring is just for you.
Imagine your perfect day... You wake up thankful for all of the things you have, kiss your babies goodbye, and off to work you go. Where did you go just now? Was it to a newborn session? Was it to a photography studio? Was it to deliver artwork to your clients' home?
I used to be where you are. I imagined my studio, my clients, and my beautiful portraits hanging on walls. But I was stuck in a job where I had to clock in and out, and I was too afraid to leave. But now I have a studio, I sell artwork, and my portraits fill my clients homes… and my bank account is MUCH happier than it’s ever been before.

Where can I even begin!? Shannon is one of the sweetest people I’ve ever met and learning from her is like learning from a long time friend! She’s not only so full of knowledge and tips for growing your business, but she truly cares about the people she’s helping. I can’t recommend her workshop and courses enough! Run... don’t walk... to sign up!!
One of my first jobs out of college was as an event planner. I was secretly jealous of the photographers that would come in for the events; they would share their albums and business cards, and I so wanted that to be me. I know what a dream feels like, I know how hard you have to work to make that dream come true, and I know that sometimes you need a little help along the way.
Over the years, photographers have reached out to me, asking how I sell artwork, And I felt like I just needed to share this gift that you can give your clients, and your family.
I see you… building your photography business...while working your 9-5 (or wondering if you should go back to it). Or maybe you are a stay at home mom that's ready to make your dream career finally begin! You're so tired from all of the mini sessions, but your dreams are so big. It’s time to stop wondering how to make your business better, turn your inbox full of friends and family into ideal clients, and your artwork into a profitable career that offers more to your clients and your family.
Regardless of where you’re at in your business journey, this program was created just for you.
From your first email, to the first hug, imagine working with sweet clients that appreciate you; and your artwork. Learn how to elevate your brand, your studio, and your salary.
Photography started out in a dark room, with the excitement of creating a printed photograph, made from film. Due to the rapidly changing technology industry, we now have a million digital images that may not even exist in 10 years. Printed artwork is the most precious gift that you can give your clients. Shannon will share with you the way that she sells and creates keepsakes for her SRJP families.
The photography world is full of photographers that love mini sessions (believe me... I used to get emails constantly asking for minis.) But as a professional photographer, I personally know that mini sessions will take away your passion, leave you sick and tired the week before Christmas, and you will be working more than you would in a regular 9-5... for much less. Shannon will walk you through each and every step you need to take to create profitable minis, or eliminate them completely, sell artwork, and create a salary for your business and your family.
From welcome guides to email templates, Shannon will help you get organized, plan ahead, and teach you how to run a portrait studio step - by - step. You will learn how to create artwork, and host your first ordering appointment.
LET'S BREAK it DOWN

And last but not least, I'll share how I got on the first page of Google, who I've worked with along the way, and all of the things I know about SEO, website design, and more!

Frequently Asked Questions
This is the perfect way to begin your business. I started my business selling artwork, because honestly, that’s just what I thought professional photographers did. It was never a second thought to me. This is the best way to set your business up for success in the long run!
Not at all! There are so many pros who are doing the “shoot and burn,” they are worn out and need help! This is exactly for you. When your clients are only asking for digitals, I get it, but this class will help you to actually sell artwork, price your digitals for profit, and create a thriving business where you work less, and not more (unless you want to, of course!)
I add education into my cost of doing business every year. The photography business, and world, is constantly changing... and if you want to keep up with the pros, you need to continuously step up your game, learn about trends in the industry, take tips and tricks from others, and continue to grow. In my options, there is never an end to education in the photography industry.
