let's talk


We believe the one-on-one experience is the most efficient way to transform business and lives.

Like most things in our relationship, we bring very different experiences to the table. Andy has over 20 years of experience in corporate sales management and training. Melanie has 18 years experience in counseling, coaching, and small business ownership . Combined, we’ve got over 17 years of experience with professional photography. 

We combine our strengths to offer transformative coaching to small business owners, helping them create sustainable businesses and passionate lives. We dig private mentoring and the one-on-one experience because we’ve found it is the most efficient way to transform businesses and lives. 

We realized a long time ago that being successful requires much more than just knowing how to take pretty pictures. After making countless mistakes in our early years, we’ve created a thriving business all while living in a tiny sierra town.


We want to save you from making the same mistakes we made and are truly invested in helping you succeed. 

“A smart man learns from his mistakes but a wise man learns from the mistakes of others.”

Our mentoring sessions happen online. Come comfy but ready to work - we want you to feel at ease as we dig in and make things happen! Before the mentoring sessions begin, we will meet for a consultation to set goals and make sure you get the most out of your time with us. Each session is customized specifically to help you master the areas that lead to long-term sustainable success in your business.
