I did a one hour strategy session with MB. TL;DR - excellent decision, I am SO glad I did it and plan to do another in the future. If you are thinking about this, stop reading and go apply!

MB is an incredibly talented photographer and business analyst, and both of those things show in her work. We did a detailed walkthrough of my website, during which MB gave me a bunch of easily actionable suggestions. She had also run an SEO report on my site and walked through that so I could see where I was starting from. MB was really patient and answered each of my (many) questions. After our meeting, she sent me a fantastic PDF that summarized our discussion and my action items, along with my SEO report and other next steps. I am really excited to implement the changes MB recommended and see where I am a few months from now!

Brittany F | Spokane, WA 2021

Turn around time is incredibly timely and her artistic style is really genuine, photojournalistic with deep colors and contrast. She captures moments I don't even notice are happening and they end up being some of my favorite shots. Lastly, the prints and albums are exceptional quality....even better than the online gallery. MB was the first photographer to convince me of this and now I'll never go back to storing beautiful photos on thumb drives and never looking at them again.”


KR | Spokane 2021

“MaryBeth did our family photos and it was a great experience! I was worried about my young kids and newborn cooperating. She got down on their level. Nothing was rushed and as a result we have some of the best family pictures ever! Would definitely recommend her as your next photographer!”

Dakota E | Spokane 2021

I mean the pictures are nice but I figured it really wasn’t worth spending the money. Boy was I wrong! She cared so much about capturing Fenris for who he is and our genuine relationship. I can’t wait to have a session with my other dog! 💖 I really encourage anyone in the Spokane area to check her out! I ordered 7 prints; they are all high quality, glossy photo paper and look amazing framed. If you look on her website at her portfolio, her pictures of humans are pretty good too ;)”

This experience completely changed my mind about professional photo shoots with my dogs

CM 2021 | Cannon Beach, OR

Do not hesitate!  I have 2 special needs dogs which can make some photographers nervous, but this was far from the case! It was so fun, calm and just a great day. Not to mention the pictures are perfection!!! I take photos yearly; these are my all time favorites!”

If you are looking for a professional, calm, amazing quality photographer in Spokane and surrounding areas, you found your girl!

Some of my favorite tips on running your business

Outsourcing is always valuable. I outsource in my business whenever it makes sense. However, I don't think you should hand things off until you understand how it works first yourself. So much maintenance and tweaks can be handled on your own before scaling to the point someone else can take over.

06. Shouldn't I just outsource my SEO, workflows, etc?

Yes! I record everything and share the link to videos in your private client portal. Videos are available to download for 30 days.

05. What if I have questions after our call?

For the VIP experience, you'll have 30 days of email access to work through things as you start implementing the changes. Often I respond with a video to walk through the question.

But always, if something isn't clear, please reach out.

04. Will I have access to our sessions?

Anything that has to do with the business of photography. Specifically SEO, client experience,  workflows, defining your ideal client, and goal setting.

03. What specific things can we work on?

In a world of coaches it's good to know the difference. As a business consultant, my focus is more granular on specific problems and creating actionable steps and plans to tackle whatever you're working on.

02. Do you guarantee results?

Yes and No. Change takes time and anyone that guarantees a quick fix should be viewed cautiously. What I do guarantee is that after our call you will understand specifically what steps you need to take and have a plan in place to move the needle in your photography business. And if you don't, I'll work with you to rework the plan.

01. What's the difference between a coach and a constultant?

frequently asked questions
