Mentor Sessions

I don’t know about you (yet), but my favorite way of learning has always been one-on-one, when I can have the teacher’s undivided attention. That’s why I love teaching other photographers one-on-one via mentor sessions on video chat.

When you come prepared to a mentor session with a clear goal of what you want to learn and a list of questions, you can get as much out of a one hour session as an all-day group workshop.

No small talk, just straight to business: how can I help you?

Quick Fix

When you know exactly what you need help with, and come prepared with questions. Great when you’re feeling stuck or lost and need some clarity.

  • Recording of the call for you to keep
  • Pre-call questions and research
  • Follow-up plan, aka homework


I have paid for mentoring sessions from other photographers in the past, and some have been too much information crammed into a short period of time, while others didn’t help me at all. Nina took time to thoroughly review my website before our video chat, and we talked about any questions that I had, but the best part is that I got homework! It was written out, and I checked off things down the list. It has streamlined my workflow and taken it down to bite sized portions that are easy to maintain. I’d recommend her mentoring to anyone looking to improve their business!
