Ana Brandt | In Person Private Photography Mentoring
Well, with the birth of my first daughter in 2012, I began shooting newborn and maternity photography; and I LOVED it! I was able to fulfill my desire to be artistic, but didn’t have the long days and nights of a wedding photographer. I also began following Ana on YouTube, watching everything I could about baby posing and wrapping and absolutely everything I could get my hands on. And by the end of 2014, I knew I was ready to make a change.
I had heard of the importance of a mentor for years, but always thinking to myself that mentors were for everyone else. And that I could push thru and do this myself. But after a decade of frustration, I was finally ready to take the plunge. And of course, the first place I looked was Ana’s website. I signed up for membership right away and also booked Skype mentoring with her. And let me say that with the first phone call, I knew that I had made the right decision. Over the previous decade, I had made so many bad choices. From equipment choices, and where to invest my time and money and how to market. So many choices that cost me years of struggle. Choices that could have been influenced by someone further along than myself. And in the next four weeks, I asked every question I could think of! From equipment to lighting to marketing to props! You name it; we talked about it. And I feel like I gained that 10 years back in one month.
For those of you who haven’t spoken directly with Ana, she is an encourager; but definitely not an enabler. She will give you the tools to succeed. But she won’t give you slack if you aren’t doing what you need to! Which is exactly what I needed. Ana opened my eyes to things I was doing wrong in my session workflow that saved me hours. She also showed me that you don’t need every expensive prop in the world or the most expensive lighting and backdrops to make amazing images. You need to know your lighting and you need to know your posing. But you also need to know your business. And this is what Ana helped me with the most.
Mentoring with Ana was the best decision I have ever made for my business. Whether you do the Skype mentoring or even an online class, she always puts her heart and soul into it. She truly wants you to succeed. And because of Ana, I can now say that I am. Thank you Ana!
