Empower your business with Alison May Education

Let's Learn

I'm here with full heart and passion, to offer my knowledge and experiences. I decided not to take any college classes, rather jumped into this with full gumption and drive and built a successful business from the ground up. Being a photographer is so much fun + incredibly rewarding. I've been a full time wedding photographer for the past 8 years. In that time I've learned so much, changed my work ethic + editing aesthetics numerous times, been mentored, and have gained insight, tips + tricks that I'm excited to share! Whether you're just starting out and want to learn how to make this into a business or if you're in an inspirational funk and need some encouragement + excitement to get back on track, the following mentor session options are for you. Let the coffee dates, the friendships and growing together begin!

1on1 Mentorships

This is an all-encompassing session that will cover everything I do from start to finish. From attracting + booking my dream clients, to shooting, to the final delivery of images + blogging + getting featured. This session includes a short styled shoot with a couple so you can see how I shoot, pose, + direct them. I'll also let you shoot them so I can help with any questions you have + give feedback. Nothing is off the table with this session, you can ask anything + everything! I'm an open book. You choose what we focus on. These sessions range from 3-5 hours, includes lots of coffee, mimosas, tons of feedback and most likely some inside jokes.
Sessions include (but are not limited to):
+ finding your niche, your style + your aesthetic
+ how to attract & book your ideal client
+ shooting & posing (or rather not posing - allowing it to be organic + emotional)
+ live shoot with models or couple
+ finding good light, anywhere
+ workflow - from start to finish
+ goal setting & constructive criticism on your work and/or website
+ pricing & PDF's
+ advertising, collaborating, instagram

Skype Sessions

These can include anything and EVERYTHING that you can fit into two hours. These sessions are Q+A styled sessions led by you; I encourage that you come with bucket loads of questions prepared. We can cover any topics such as pricing, work flow, editing tips and tricks, destination weddings, posing, how to get clients comfortable, marketing and social media tips, booking ideal clients and more. The options are seriously endless. To polish off and seal everything that we covered, I will be providing you with a personalized guide including everything we covered in our session! Something tangible to look back on and take from our time together! Let's do this!
