Empowering photographers to CREATE ART that inspires their souls and BUILD BUSINESSES that are intentional, meaningful, and successful 

manifest this:

You & Your Art being appreciated by your dream clients so much so you’re fully booked at YOUR rates!

And no, it’s not just about manifestation. It is a reality for myself and the photographers I’ve mentored.

What makes you “YOU”? If someone who is unfamiliar with your work asks “Why should we hire you?” Are you able to answer those questions without hesitations.

Don’t let those questions scare you away. If you are feeling uncomfortable, you are at the right place. We all started our photography journey for a reason. We are exactly where we are meant to be. But in a world full of noises (both internal and external), not many photographers are fully aware of their potentials and how to take them to the next level.

This is where I come in to help you dig deep into your personal path to draw new ones so you can:

  • Build a brand that is truly honest to who you are
  • Document photographs that are meaningful and artful
  • Maintain an efficient and profitable business so you can live and grow intentionally

Care comes from the heart

hi, I’m Henry

your friend

You can pay someone to grow and to take care of your business. You can never pay someone to actually CARE. Care comes from the heart and this is the very core of what I do to help you. Care is most important recipe in the way I empower other photographers.

My name is Henry and I care a whole lot because I was just in your shoes not so long ago.

I didn’t have a business background when I first started doing photography. I struggled with finding my voice in my brand and in my art. Some days, I woke up feeling energized and ready to take on the world. Some other days, I woke up crying and questioning why I am doing this. I also experienced “over promise and under deliver” education.

So took everything I’ve learned from my Cardiac ICU nursing background and apply to photography education: Provide Care From The Heart. This is where I’ve helped many photographers build successful businesses through 1:1 mentorships and Hey Darling Workshop and I am so excited you are here.

All in-person mentorships are held around November – March. For online mentorships, I am available year round with limited availabilities during July – September due to elopement season

For the in-person mentorships/workshops that include the live photography portion with models, photographers often book a mentor session around 6 – 12 months in advance.

For any mentorships without photographing models, you can book at a minimum 1 month in advance (subject to availability)

Pricing can be viewed above under the description of Mentorship and Personal Workshop

Washington is a beautiful place (and is also my home 😍) therefore, mentor sessions are often hosted within 1 – 2 hours drive within Seattle. If you are interested in a mentor session wherever I travel next, I can also offer a mentorship at that destination without additional travel fees

During the planning process, I will ask questions to learn more about you and your goals.

If you know exactly what you need to learn from me, I am an open book and will be 100% transparent with you

If you don’t know where to start, don’t worry. We will start slow and examine each aspect of growing your photography as a business owner and as a creative individual.
