As your photography mentor, I'll be digging up those roots right alongside you. You've got a extraordinary piece of land that is unlike anyone else's. If you build your foundation with intent and purpose, pretty soon you'll have a home that you're proud of. A home that holds space for beautiful stories. A home that feels like you.
During your photography mentorship, we’ll take an honest look at where you’re at both personally and professionally. I’m a big believer in taking a deep dive into ourselves before ever touching our businesses.
Together, we’ll put together a blue print on how you can push yourself towards your goals in a way that leaves you feeling fulfilled and unshaken.
My hope is that you make room for clarity, flow and creativity in your life. It’s an unstoppable combination.
With a background in hospitality, branding and marketing, I’ve gained a special perspective on how small businesses can begin, thrive and expand with the right foundations to support them. I've worked with brands as big as Beverly Hills (yes, the whole city) and as small as solopreneurs like you.
After leaving what many called a dream job to start The Tinsley Co, I've been fortunate to enjoy four years of business, 100+ weddings, international recognition and a successful six figure brand. I’m here to help you lay those cornerstones.

Why you aren't just an ad set on instagram
If you've spent more than thirty seconds online as an entrepreneur, you've likely had, what I call, the '100k myth' shoved down your throat. Here's the deal. Everyone wants six figures. It's great to make six figures. But, do you fail if you don't? Of course not.
You're financial and business needs are a one-of-a-kind story. We have to first explore what a happy and healthy life looks like for you. Then we'll analyze all of your personal inputs to figure out what your outputs need to be. This is how we'll create customized goals that are sustainable and fulfilling.

Tackle the problem faster, together
Mentor minis are a great way to get quick feedback and direction on a problem. Sometimes it’s incredibly helpful to talk it out with someone else in your industry. You might have an idea you want to run by someone other than your partner or your cat, ya know? During our call, we’ll get right to the point and find solutions for you to move forward with.
This is for you if you have a specific area of your business that you want intentional help with or constructive feedback on.
