my services

let’s plan the celebration of your written and visual dreams.

I’m passionate about helping you tell your story through coaching, photography, & workshops.


I am a published author of 15 books and a Certified Christian Life Coach.

As a Dream Defender, I’m so proud of my many clients who have become small business owners, published authors, and more! Let me help you tell your written story.

I use a four-point coaching questionnaire that helps me assess your life, creative arts, business, and spiritual direction. I can meet in person (if you’re local to the Quad Cities) or over Zoom. Do you need help with:

  • Branding/Launching a new website, social media, and/or business for your book or photography?
  • Writing and/or self-publishing your book?
  • Growing in your photography (mentoring)?

the FAQ

To schedule a one-on-one coaching session, contact me here. I will send you a questionnaire and request that you share whatever materials you want me to review before the session; including your book manuscript, website, social media links, etc. to maximize our time together during the Zoom call or in-person meeting. I record each meeting so you don’t have to take notes, and I will send a follow-up email with notes and any homework discussed in the session.

$150 per hour for a one-on-one coaching session over Zoom or in person.

Most artists, authors, creatives, or photographers typically need 1-3 sessions.


I am a Midwest storytelling family photographer.

Now, more than ever, we need positive vibes and stories. Your life may be the light someone needs now! Let me help you tell your visual story.

I believe in coming in close to evoke emotion in motion, which brings your authentic and best expressions to life. When you are the most authentic version of yourself, it is then you can find hope and bring healing to those who need your story! How amazing is that?

I use a questionnaire to help me learn more about your vibe and expectations for your session and to find out if you need help picking a location or styling (what to wear). Here are the most frequently asked questions regarding booking a photography session:
