Starting and owning a business is HARD. And chasing your dreams typically doesn't come easy either. We are passionate about educating entrepreneurs in their journey by sharing our experience, knowledge, and love for photography with you!
We want to empower you, affirm you in the struggle, and ultimately see your business flourish. Some of the ways we're empowering entrepreneurs include: The MBP Workshop Experience, "For Photographers" Blog posts, and Phellowship Community Event. Check out all the details below!
We'll send you bi-monthly tips & tricks + cheer you on as you're crushin' it with all aspects of your business!
Drew and I will cover everything we've learned and experienced in our business so far. Bring ALL your questions- we will answer them to the best of our ability! Some topics we'll cover: Creating a Client Experience, Equipment, Taxes, Workflow, Marketing, Mistakes we've made along the way, Email Templates, Boundaries, Community, ISO/F-stop/Shutter Speed, Culling & Editing, Outsourcing, Posing, etc. We will also point you to resources that have been extremely helpful to us!
While it's all fun and games to learn new things, we want you to start applying your knowledge! For me, THIS is where I've learned best- by trying. We will have a full styled shoot prepared for you to capture for extra practice and to add to your portfolio. I'll actually shoot with you and talk you through my camera settings, posing and why I'm doing what I'm doing. All questions are fair game during this time as well!
We're huge foodies and know that energry is essential to soak up everything you can from the MBP Workshop Experience! After our morning session, we'll share a meal together. Your pre-workshop questionnaire will cover details like food allergies and preferences.
We hope you'll connect with and start building strong relationships with other attendees. For us, having friends in the business who are in our corner has taken our business to a whole new level! It's helped us to compare less, ask for help more, and grow a ton by learning from them. Brace yourselves because we'll also have shameless plugs to get involved with your local Rising Tide Society chapter!
These are blog posts written specifically for photographers! We want to give you free education, advice, and to cheer you on in your business!

Kelsie Lynn Photography and I wanted to create a space for photographers, vendors, and creatives a-like to connect in a meaningful way. At Phellowship, you'll have the opportunity to photography two styled shoots, learn from two industry-leading speakers, participate in a calligraphy workshop, eat lunch, and hang out with 40+ local creatives. What better way to spend your Saturday?
Our very FIRST WORKSHOP will be hosted Saturday February 10, 2018 in Oxford, Ohio. Drew and I will be an open book and share everything we've learned! Then, after lunch, you'll get to start directly APPLYING everything you just learned. Scroll through the Workshop Experience above to see all that's offered!

"Phellowship was such an incredible experience for me. I loved the emphasis on community over competition that really just made this event feel so welcoming and open to everyone! Monica and Kelsie poured their hearts into this event and it truly showed! Posing is something I always want to learn more about and I enjoyed getting to watch and learn from some of the more experienced photographers during the stylized shoots. I learned a lot and am excited to apply this to my business and continue to pursue my dreams!"
"Phellowship was so different than any other styled shoot I've attended. I almost don't want to attend any other styled shoot!! Styled shoots tend to be a free for all and are very photo drive. Phellowship was so different. It really fostered and encouraged community even over our photography. I loved that. I think we need to be more community driven to support each other through our businesses. Thank you so much Monica and Kelsie for putting this together!!"
"I'm so glad I invested in Phellowship. It was such a great experience! I loved how Monica & Kelsie incorporated community with a styled shoot. Not only did we get to participate in a gorgeous styled shoot but we also had time to meet and get to know fellow photographers. It really covered all the details you might see on a wedding day! I was able to really get the photos I wanted and really take advantage of all that was offered/put together! From start to finish, you could see all of Monica & Kelsie's efforts, hard work, and how much of their hearts they put into making it a success!"
“Phellowship was an absolutely incredible experience, and I would do it again in a heartbeat! No detail was overlooked, including beautiful detail layflats, a gorgeous couple, bridesmaids, and a whole dessert table (and SO much more!!). Monica and Kelsie’s heart was to truly foster community with the photographers that attended, and they definitely achieved it. By the end of the night, I remember chatting with every other photographer that attended! I can’t wait to attend another Phellowship, over and over again! ”
"Phellowship gave photographers an opportunity to meet other photographers and vendors in the area. I made a new friend that I have since hung out with and it was so fun! I think it's a great and fun experience and anyone interested in joining the next one should!"
