In short, whatever you need. Mentorship is guided by you and your personal business needs and goals. Everything from shooting and editing, posing, business structure and questions, portfolio reviews, branding, website reviews, etc. Mentorship is to serve YOU so you decide how to spend our time.

customIZED MENTORSHIP for a personalized experience


Are you interested in scheduling a 1:1, personalized mentoring session? Contact me today! We can tailor sessions to your needs and budget. From one-time, 1-hour virtual sessions to regular mentor chats and in-person, outdoor opportunities, ABP is here to support you and your business. Contact me today to set up your mentorship experience!


The timing and location of your session have such a big impact on the feel of your photographs. You can be laid back at home, or full glam on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial and anything in between. Your portraits should reflect your personal style and the time in your life that you are wanting to capture. 


Even more than the location of your session, wardrobe styling is EVERYTHING! I have so many tips and tricks to ensure that you are not only comfortable, but that your photos reflect the best version of yourself. I am here to offer guidance - if you want it - on styling. I also have a few beautiful pieces available in my client wardrobe! 

The SEssion

I get it. Being in front of the camera can be daunting and uncomfortable. As a professional photographer I am here to guide you through poses and help ensure that you feel comfortable throughout your session. Being photographed is more than photos - it is an experience. It is my goal that your experience with me is as special as the photos themselves!


For most sessions I offer a sneak peak of a handful of photos within 24-48 hours. Once the rest of your gallery is complete, your curated, professionally edited photos are delivered via an online gallery. From here you can download high resolution photos as well as web-sized versions of your photos that are optimized for posting to social media. Here you can also share your gallery, select favorites, and place orders. 


Digital prints are great, but having tangible keepsakes from your session makes for heirlooms that last a lifetime. Professional quality and fine art prints, albums, custom framed portraits, canvases, etc. are a beautiful addition to your session and even make great gifts. 

Cherished Memories

I cherish each and every one of my clients and hope that you walk away from your session loving your photos and experience. I'm thrilled to now call many of my clients friends now and so enjoy photographing their families from year to year!
