I LOVE getting requests for Tina Time Mentoring Sessions! I get to spend an 8 hour day, just one-on-one with someone, talking about one of my FAVORITE things… photography! I get to meet someone who also has a passion for creating beautiful images. I get to teach them + see those light-bulb moments when things start ‘clicking’ for them. I get to plan two photo shoots for us to do together to help them put all that they are learning into practice. And on top of that, I get to have a lasting friendship. The ladies I’ve mentored over the years are all VERY DEAR to me!!!
This past Mentoring Session was with Lindsey, my new friend. Being a mom, and being around a lot of other moms, Lindsey has naturally started photographing a lot of families. So the first shoot I set up for us to do as practice together was of Hallie + her little girl baking. I wanted that shoot to be indoors, because it’s so different than outdoor shoots + it’s always good to be able to take good indoor shots, even if that’s not your focus. (You can see those images HERE.)
The second shoot I set up was of Ashley, who drove over from Wilmington for the shoot. (THANK YOU, Ashley!!!) Individuals are sometimes tougher to photograph because there’s no one else in the photograph to interact with, and without good strategies for that, the subject can often look awkward. After having this shoot, Lindsey is super excited to begin photographing more individuals + high school seniors. And I am THRILLED for her!!! It’s exciting to discover such a passion for something + I’m so thankful to have been a part of her photography journey. Here are a few of my images from our second shoot together…
Lindsey, THANK YOU so much for spending the day with me!!! I had a blast!
Ryan + LeAnn, THANK YOU for letting us use your AMAZINGLY CUTE truck!!! THANK YOU!! THANK YOU!!
And Ashley, THANK YOU for modeling for us!!! PLEASE come model for me again! You ROCKED this shoot!!! THANK YOU!
If you would like to take better photos of your family + friends, or if you’d like to get a photography business going, or if you already have a photography business + would simply like to take BETTER images… I’D LOVE TO MENTOR YOU!!! Simply contact me about having a Tina Time Mentoring Session!
