Mentographer program

bwedding photographer in vietnamese buddhist temple

Hi! I’m Jeannine, a photographer mentor. I run a successful portrait and wedding business while designing a life I love with my family and a supportive community of photographers. Since 2015, I’ve hosted monthly small business workshops for creatives, including the St. Paul chapter of the Rising Tide Society. In 2020, we rebranded the studio as a full-service portrait studio where we design portrait art for families and help small businesses make the best first impressions.

Being a creator in business is challenging, and I’m thrilled to offer a mentoring program for photographers! How you learn is important, which is why I offer a variety of mentoring opportunities, from group workshops to individual sessions!

Maybe you want to take that flash out of the box you purchased months ago, or perhaps you aren’t getting the clients you want or making the profit you need. Whatever obstacles you’re currently facing, I’ve been there and am here to help navigate them. 

I’ve trained with various mentors each year in my 17 years in business, not only in the craft of photography but also in business, prosperity, money mindset, organization, and sales. I’ve moved from a tiny little office in the attic of my home to a retail studio with an entire support team. I understand what starting from scratch looks like and the feeling of watching my progress. I want to share that feeling of achievement with you on your path to success!

If you want to learn with me, check out the education and mentoring opportunities below to gain confidence in your craft and master your photography business! I can’t wait to see what you accomplish with me!
