You have not changed out of your sweatpants for two weeks. Your skin has not known the sunshine for even longer. You spend hours and hours each week scouring Facebook and Twitter, or worse, comparing yourself to other photographers’ websites. You and your photography are stuck, and you cannot find your sparkle, your swag, or your soul. Your work is not bad and your business is not going belly up (maybe), BUT you are not feeling alive. Photography has become an itchy sweater that is just too small.
Listen up: you are not alone. Truth is, we artists burn out. Another truth: it does not have to be this way.
Your business, and life, are more profitable when you are living with an authentic spark that is glowing bright. It is a quiet knowing. A voice inside. Everyone’s is different. In this four-week class, you will reawaken your fire and get your groove back in a major way. You will tune in to your own authentic spark, and listen. Plus, you will have a fully-stocked “keep-that-ocean-of-mojo-in-your-heart” tool box.

Awakening the Spark
“I believe in laughing until I get the hiccups, in always having either paint, clay or sand in my hair (bonus points for all three), in sleeping under the stars to awaken my truth, in jumping on the bed, making living room forts, high fives, and saying thank you at least 100 times a day. I am dedicated to a relatively quiet Internet presence (it gives us all more time to be connected with ourselves, each other and the Earth), being in a place free from “shoulds” and “have tos,” and living from a place of empowerment.
I am a happily married mama of two. I have been told from my 90-year-old grandfather that I am a “total pissa, a real fire-cracka,” so consider yourself warned.
My professional goal and dream is crystal clear: help other artists honor their authentic stories and visions and throw the ‘shoulds’ and ‘have tos’ right out the window. It’s time to be free! YOU ARE ENOUGH.”
