the details

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, somatic therapy, and small business ownership . Combined, we’ve got over 25 years of experience in professional photography. 

We combine our strengths to offer transformative education and mentorship to small business owners, helping them create sustainable businesses and passionate lives. We love private mentoring because it's the most efficient way to transform businesses and lives quickly.  

We realized a long time ago that being successful requires much more than just knowing how to take pretty pictures. After making countless mistakes, we’ve created multiple  6 figure businesses 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.
