If you said yes to any of the above, it's time to get schooled.
Welcome to Storyteller's School, starting this October!!
despite winning awards, I KNEW I LACKED a clear, consistent brand. AND I DIDN'T have the confidence to stand behind MY prices.
i now make 6 figures as a docwed/docfam photographer. AND I ONLY WORK WITH PEOPLE WHO WANT WHAT I DO.
I THINK THIS IS POSSIBLE FOR EVERYONE, So I've written the road map to get you from feeling lost, stuck and discouraged, to feeling confident, clear and inspired.
✔ "Not good enough" as a documentary photographer
✔ Balls of anxiety in your stomach when a client challenges your prices
✔ Defeated when clients don't hire you
✔ Lost in the crowded wedding and family photography markets
✔ Frustrated by clients who expect you to shoot in a way that isn't you
These are the feelings I'm going to help you ditch inside Storyteller's School. You will create a booming business that ALIGNS WITH YOUR VALUES, GOALS AND DREAMS, so you can move confidently through every interaction in your business and how you tell your clients' stories.
It’s intentionally different from anything you’ve seen before because I teach you composition and storytelling techniques, while I walk you through marketing and branding, pricing for profit, and building a kickass website and portfolio.
I was desperate to figure out what the hell I was doing so I could stop flailing in every direction, just seeing what would stick. I felt yucky and out of alignment with some of the work I was doing but didn't know why. I was tired of trying to mold myself to each client to ensure they had a good experience.
If you want to discover the innate value you bring to your clients just by being you, work with Bobbi. If you want to reduce the total effort you expend while offering an even better client experience, work with Bobbi. If you want to make more money and feel awesome about it, work with Bobbi. If you want to fall in love with what you do again, work with Bobbi.
The 12 week badass group mentorship that shows you exactly how to
MAKE DOCUMENTARY PHOTOS THAT MATTER,
BRAND YOUR WORK, MARKET YOUR BUSINESS, AND PRICE YOUR PACKAGES...
and feel super good doing it.
In short, Storyteller's School guides you through everything you need to know to build a sustainable and fulfilling documentary wedding & family photography business.
I pulled together all the pivotal pieces that have transformed my business from busting by butt for clients who didn't get me, to serving people I love for more money than I'd ever thought possible.
WITHOUT. COMPROMISING. ANYTHING.

WHO ARE YOU, REALLY?
We deep dive into your gift, your personal values, and your life story to build a brand story that consistently, completely aligns with your photographic voice. You’ll go from feeling lost in the market to shining like a freaking diamond!
WHERE ARE YOU GOING?
Learn to be proactive in your choices, to figure out what you want in this life, by time traveling to key financial milestones in your business. Then, we map out exactly how to get there and make that money. This truly empowering module gives you a clear road map to success and laser-sharp vision on your goals.
WHAT ARE YOU WORTH?
These powerful lessons teach you exactly how to price your work for profit, and understand those confusing financial reports. We get granular on what numbers to pay attention to, and how to shift them. These skills will help you feel relieved that you finally understand exactly what to charge, and how to do it with complete confidence.
HOW DO YOU GET THERE?
We pull together everything you’ve been building and apply it to your website, social media, and portfolio. We’ll spend several weeks critiquing individual images and entire shoots so you can become an incredible storyteller, knowing that every photo you make going forward perfectly aligns with your voice. It’s a whole new way of seeing, and being. Composition, lighting, ninja-skills, and ESP to anticipate, see and frame moments that matter.
You’ll work through prepared video lessons and related exercises, sharing some of the assignments for feedback and support in our Facebook group and weekly group calls, with constructive and motivating input by me.
Each week, we will meet online for a motivational group coaching call where we review your homework, support you in the challenges, and inspire you to keep growing. Photo and portfolio reviews, advice and illuminating conversations about becoming a better artist and business.
If you don’t even know where to start when you sit down to write words, I’m giving you ALL of my email scripts, the exact ones I use to convert high paying clients. I’ll also give you clear and easy prompts to adapt and apply to your website, so you can share your shiny new self as soon as absolutely possible!
Sometimes we need some one-on-one time to work through challenges. When you sign up now, you’ll get two 60 minute individual coaching calls during the program to help you with anything you feel you need help with: portfolio selections, website analysis, photo critiques, story telling skills... anything!
Storyteller's School is just the beginning of your evolution! You’ll need time to implement all your changes, and accountability to maintain motivation.

THIS IS THE LIFE-CHANGING MAGIC YOU'VE BEEN HOPING FOR.
Despite winning dozens of international awards for my work, I STRUGGLED THROUGH PIECE-MEAL COURSES AND DIY-ING MY BUSINESS. I barely made enough to cover my expenses, I couldn't attract people I really wanted to work with, and I felt completely lost.
But when I finally started figuring out WHY THE HECK AM I DOING THIS, and infusing THAT into all of my business decisions, my success SKYROCKETED. and I now earn six figures with ease every year.
This course pulls together all the lessons I learned on this journey, DISTILLED DOWN TO 12 WEEKS OF INTENSIVE WORK, guided by me.

Let’s address the most common questions…
WHEN DOES STORYTELLER'S SCHOOL START?
The next cohort starts in October 2023
IS STORYTELLER'S SCHOOL JUST FOR WEDDING & FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHERS?
While my expertise is in documentary wedding and family photography, I have made a considerable amount of money as a branding photographer and as a journalist. I'm also 1:1 mentor brand photographers, so.... I've got tons of experience to share with you. DM me on IG and let's talk to see if I'm the right fit for what you need.
HOW MUCH ACCESS DO I HAVE TO YOU?
Each week, we will have 60 minute live group or 1:1 coaching call, and I respond to all Facebook discussions within 24 hours, except on weekends.
CAN I JOIN NEXT TIME? I WANT TO KEEP TRYING ON MY OWN.
Absolutely! But can I ask, have you been trying on your own for a while? The key to success is doing something different. And STORYTELLER'S SCHOOL IS DIFFERENT. There is no other course as comprehensive, individualized and deeply supportive as this one. And this is the only time tuition will be available at the current price.
HOW MANY PEOPLE ARE YOU ACCEPTING?
I’m limit enrolment to 5 so we can get to know one another and I can provide you the individualized support you need.
WHAT IS THE TIME COMMITMENT?
The course is 12 weeks long, and we structure each coaching call around specific topics. You'll get the most out of the program if you can stay on time with the group. How much time to commit each week to doing the work it takes to become a confident documentary photographer is totally up to you.
Yes! This will work no matter what kind of photographer you are, as long as you need to learn the techniques to book out your business.
We offer refunds if you’ve implemented everything and don’t see the results you were hoping for. You just gotta prove you tried, okay?
The video modules are each 10 minutes long and after implementing everything, you’ll probably spend about 4 hours doing the work to change the trajectory of you business.
You’ll get immediate access to everything included:
3 video modules
Master your marketing guide
If you’re ready to change how you show up, then this is the answer you’ve been searching the internet for.
You know you're meant for more, and this is your opportunity to prove it to yourself.
AND ESPECIALLY TO PEOPLE THAT ARE FEELING A BIT BURNT OUT AND NEED A REFRESHER ON WHY THEY'RE DOING THIS.
GETTING YOUR BRAND AND WORK LOOKED OVER BY OTHER PHOTOGRAPHERS IS CRUCIAL FOR PERSONAL GROWTH.
THE COURSE PROVIDES SUPPORT IN A VERY NON JUDGEMENTAL & NO BIG EGO, NO BULLSHIT SPACE. I LOVED IT!
Life-changing magic is waiting for you inside.
I'LL SEE YOU THERE.
