    Many describe Jamie as part photographer, part Photo Booth entrepreneur, and all-around hustler.  Her drive, focus, and simple work approach helped Jamie develop a thriving business in a few years.  Her strategy is a simple combination of goal planning, hard work, and experiences that thrill clients.  Jamie is a recent evangelist for mirrorless camera systems and is never afraid to implement technology to improve quality, profitability and integrate easily into her client workflow. When she isn’t in “full press” work mode or sweating at her favorite CrossFit gym, Jamie loves spending time with her life partner Brendon and her fur babies Bella, Lucy and Daisy Mae.

    The B.E.S.T Hustle

    Jamie delivers the key to her B.E.S.T. philosophy of “Believe Excellent Service Transforms” in this 45-minute information-packed primer. Learn the top 5 things to do right now to push your business forward each day. This isn’t easy or comfortable but you are not going to excel following the same path of the past.  Jamie turned a small one photo booth with one client into a successful, profitable and highly requested photography company using these techniques.  Before choosing this class, ask yourself… “Am I brave enough to change?”  If you are ready for the challenge, freedom awaits.
