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!
Drew and I will cover several topics that we've learned and experienced in our business so far. 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, and so much more! We will also point you to resources that have been extremely helpful to us. Bring ALL your questions- we will answer them to the best of our ability!
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 energy 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 aversions.
It may feel bizarre because you're used to being behind the camera, but it's always nice to get some updated images! I'll photograph each photographer in 2-5 poses. You'll receive your images and some behind the scene shots shortly after attending the workshop!
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!
We'll send you bi-monthly tips & tricks + cheer you on as you're crushin' it with all aspects of your business!
These are blog posts written specifically for photographers! We want to give you free education, advice, and to cheer you on in your business! Check out all our posts through the link below!

Kelsie Lynn Photography and I wanted to create a space for photographers, vendors, and creatives a-like to connect and in a meaningful way. We're in the midst of a re-brand & re-structure so stay tuned for more details on the Phellowship website. Click the link below to check out all the details!
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! We are planning to host one more MBP Workshop in 2018 so stay tuned for more details!
“I wanted to go to the #mbpworkshop because it is clear that Mon + Drew value education, leadership, and giving their own clients the best possible experience. The fact that they are willing to share SO much is just incredible! I walked away from their workshop with a fire in my heart and a checklist in mind of attainable action steps that they provided. I didn't leave feeling overwhelmed, but rather ready to take on the next steps to AMP up my business. THANK YOU GUYS SO MUCH! ”
"The MBP workshop was so incredibly helpful. It's not everyday that an experienced photographer will sit down with you and talk about everything from finances and taxes to website SEO's. They covered the topics that new photographers look at like a deer in the headlights, and they did it in a way we could comprehend. I would highly recommend this to any new photographer. It's a great opportunity to network with other photographers and gain knowledge about the business that only comes from experience."
"I seriously can not say enough great things about Monica and Drew. I never would have even started my business if it weren't for Monica's love and encouragement. I feel so blessed to have been a part of MBP's first workshop. I left feeling loved and encouraged. Monica understands the emotional toll it takes on you to pour out your heart into your work. She has often been the rock that I have needed. SO MUCH LOVE FOR THESE TWO!!"
"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 driven. 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!!"
