YOU WANT TO FEEL CONFIDENT DURING SESSIONS AND DELIVER THE SAME QUALITY AND EXPERIENCE EVERY TIME

but sometimes the light, the weather and all of the other things that can work against photographers overwhelms you

I understand because I used to work through major anxiety, dread and mental blocks before sessions. I had to figure out ways to handle the lack of control that comes with being a photographer, especially at the beach where anything can happen! 

You may wonder if you can deliver the same style of editing despite the light
You may stress over how to start your session when you get to your location
You may be wishing you had said/done things in email communication prior that changed the dynamic/client expectation once the session started

YOU FEEL DISCOURAGED

because you need the process from start to finish to be
  CLEAR and simplified and repeatable.

BEACH PHOTOGRAPHY SIMPLIFIED

with Amanda hedgepeth

if you love shooting by the sea, your clients request it often or you want to see how I am providing a high end service with confidence, efficiently, over and over again

this is for you

In nine years, I have learned a LOT of valuable lessons when it comes to business - but let me tell you THE MOST VALUABLE OF ALL: the BEST way to stand out and bring in business is to show up and do the thing you say you're going to do. Even more valuable? Doing it confidently, while being kind, and being fast both in your shooting and image delivery. I hear so much about saturated markets and competition and this and that but if you want to stand out - word of mouth referrals that sing your praises are literally the goldest of the golden ways to become an in-demand brand. Add some more factors on top of that: a start-to-finish EASY, CLEAR and PLEASANT experience starting from email one and a personal brand where people feel like they know you before the session happens, resulting in TRUST already being built..and you are unstoppable as a business. This is not impossible. My secret for growing as quickly as I did was combining all of these important factors BUT in order to do all of these things, I had to simplify my shooting process and techniques, create shortcut rules for my shutter speed, white balance, aperture and other settings so that I could MOVE QUICKLY and WOW my clients. Simplifying the email communication, the actual session shooting and the post processing has been a gift to my business, my family and most importantly - to my paying clients that come back year after year! 

Say no more, I’m in!

BEACH PHOTOGRAPHY 
SIMPLIFIED 

One of the first things people say when they see me in real life is, "wow - I did NOT realize you were that short!" HAHA, I'm 4'11 and whew, I have quite a story. I'm a girl that went through the ringer and changed the course of my entire life right before I met my husband in 2007. I was a mess, broken and hopeless. One day I realized it was going to be my choice to wake up and pursue happiness every single day no matter what it took - and months later, I started dating the man I would marry. 

We live on the Outer Banks of North Carolina all because when our oldest daughter was only 2 (she's now 8) she mentioned there weren't enough stars in the sky and she wanted to see more. A leap of faith, a giant Uhaul and exit 291B took us HOME a couple months later. I spend my days covered in saltwater and sand serving clients on the beach over and over throughout the year here by the sea. I'm proof you CAN change your life when you have faith that there is MORE good waiting for you... you just have to chase it.

who's invited?

Photographers, you know you're in the right spot if:

You know what an honor it is to document your clients lives

You want to add value to your brand and be able to raise prices

You want to simplify how you are doing things now 

If I can simplify the ENTIRE email, booking, shooting and delivery process while enjoying every single client session and continuing to raise prices...
YOU CAN TOO.

what you'll learn

A SERIES OF TINY CHANGES TO YOUR BUSINESS CAN ADD MASSIVE VALUE

And it all comes in the form of simplifying, having your ducks in a row and some incredibly game-changing things you may not yet have thought of

For nine years, every single time something felt difficult or went wrong during a session, I took notes.

There wasn't a giant overhaul of my business all at once - I slowly and intentionally changed contract terms, pre-session email communication and pricing details. I created default camera settings for better results and so much more to better manage the entire experience for my clients and myself. 

The wonderful part about photography education is that you get to shortcut a lot of uncomfortable parts and get to the good stuff faster... so in this course I get to share: all email correspondence protocol from inquiry to booking to planning the session, wise contract term suggestions, the actual shoot and how I assess and control my light from super bright days to the cloudiest and bluest days, how I keep the session moving quickly and repeat the same process for every family and how I edit fast and deliver the entire session typically within less than 24 hours. This took a series of lots of tiny changes that I now get to share with YOU! 

Enough said, I’m in!

“This sounds great, but I’ve got questions!”

I AM SO EXCITED

to help you solve your pain points in a simplified and relatable way

I LOVE to talk to people about business and photography in a way that makes sense even if you don't know all of the technical terms and jargon. I do NOT allow people to feel like they are asking a "dumb question" - EVER! I'm a visual learner and sometimes the technical things completely overwhelm me. I get it! Aside from the video lesson content where I'm talking you through things and teaching, I'll show REAL EDITING (great for VISUAL learners like me!) from start to finish and share our private and never-released client session guide we provide our beach families before their session. Any tip, trick and secret is for grabs during this course! My students are welcome to ask anything... I'm an open book! 

to help you solve your pain points in a
simplified and relatable way

what to expect

Real editing videos

One of the most impactful ways I've taught is by allowing students to watch the REAL start-to-finish process of me editing an image and how I got there from the very first slider I move in Lightroom to the last. 

We aren't just sharing the perfectly-shot RAW files being transformed...we're sharing the ones where HAZE and LIGHT almost compromised the image, but I brought it BACK to LIFE!

Video lessons 

I LOVE talking business and it really comes across in my tone, so I can't wait for you to HEAR me get hyped up and teach about the start-to-finish process from the first inquiry email to the minute I click "send" on that online gallery. 

My brand is so special and unique and I've honed in on what makes people want to come back. I'll be sharing my heart and best tips in these videos! 

Checklists 

I am very proudly a lover of lists and one of my FAVORITE things to do is come up with lists so that you don't have to! After each video lesson, we'll offer you a detailed checklist filled with suggestions on what you can do next to up-level your business and refine and simplify wherever you need to. 

We'll have these available in a PDF printable format for you! 

THat's not all! here's More!!!

I'm NOT SURE I HAVE TIME...

I'm a mom of three running a business, a nonprofit and have a total of TWELVE office hours a week to do so.

I GET IT. 

We're offering something a little unique to give margin to those who may need extra time to access their content. We are giving our students access to all videos and content for six months so they have plenty of time to show up and take in all of the videos, tutorials, editing before/after videos and checklist PDF's provided to keep you on track. 

The live videos in the Facebook group will remain posted and we don't have any plans to close the Facebook group as we want to keep it open to build community, offer a safe space to ask questions (I do NOT tolerate unkind feedback/criticism, ONLY constructive!) and so that you can tag me in posts and let me continue to answer questions occasionally as well! 

I need this. Sign me up!
