Mentoring is something I enjoy so much I get giddy just writing about it. Over the past 12 years in business I have made many mistakes and learned so much. I grew as an artist and as a person in a way I never thought possible. It’s not important if you are at the very beginning of your journey or if you are an established photographer. We all started somewhere, were once new to the scene and did not know which steps to take next. And most of us hit rough patches throughout our careers. I am here to help! My mentoring sessions are catered to your specific needs and I want you to leave confident, with your heart full, your mind inspired and your questions answered.
“I did a one-on-one mentoring session with Maria and I cannot say enough good things about my time with her. She really focused on not only making my style more focused but also on bettering my brand and my business. Her mentorship has changed the way I look at the photography business, especially mine. She is incredibly humble and talented and I highly recommend her mentoring sessions for anyone looking to grow their photography or their business. ” – Abby Verica
