Hi! Nice to meet you! (Kind of… reach out to me so we can really meet!)
I am a San Francisco based attorney, photographer, and an entrepreneur who helps photographers build or revamp their photography business using the exact method I created to build my photography business from 0 to 6 figures in my first full year of business.
I also hope to inspire others who want to have a career transition, especially after motherhood, to discover their true passion and make it a reality. I struggled with an identity crisis after having two kids, I no longer felt “alive” working as an attorney at a law firm. The thought of doing that for the rest of my life was beyond depressing. It was a 1.5 year long “self-discovery” journey (I even tried to be a BeachBody coach… and I hate exercising) until I discovered that photography is my true passion, and also LOVED everything about building a business, including producing research based blog posts and courses to help other photographers build the same financially successful business as I did.
People would ask me:
“Why did you decide to leave a job that pays so well and is stable?”
“Aren’t you afraid you can’t support your family as a photographer?”
My answer is usually “as an attorney working for a firm, I was limited to my salary and bonus, as a business owner, the sky's the limit”.
The transition from an attorney to a photographer, although personally fulfilling and fun, came puzzling to some people. People would ask me “why did you decide to leave a job that pays so well and is stable?” or “aren’t you afraid you can’t support your family as a photographer?” My answer is usually “as an attorney, I was limited to my salary and bonus, as a business owner, the sky's the limit”. People are so surprised when they learn I make more money as a photographer than when I was an attorney!
My advice, research and writing, as well as photography has been highlighted in publications such as SheKnows, FashionBean, LonelyPlanet Kids, ThriveGlobal, Mommy Nearest, Photo Field Notes Podcast, and over 30 more blogs, podcasts, and features.
