Small group photography and business Mentoring with WA's top family photographer.

Do you want to start a Photography business but have no idea where to start?

Is your photography business taking over your life and not in a good way?

Are you struggling to make your photography business profitable?

Do you need someone to be accountable to give your business boost?

Does photographing busy toddlers, with well meaning Mums terrify you?

Do you wish you could take your portraits up a notch?

Do you want to streamline your computer time and maximise the family time?

03Ten Masterclasses

Each masterclass is created and recorded week by week, covering what you really need to know.

03Ten group calls

After watching the masterclass, ask questions and learn from Lisa and each other during a group skype call.

03Two personal calls

Beacuse everyone is different, each participant will have two 1:1 skype calls with Lisa to really cover it all.

03Private FB group

In between calls and classes, get to know the group, ask questions, encourage each other along and share your wins!

03Actionable tasks

Don’t just learn, do!  Each class will come with specific actions you can do that week to really boost your business.


Just like fitness training with a partner, being part of a group adds that little extra encouragement to get things done.

Small group Mentoring boot camp is open to all levels of photographers. You can be looking to start a business, new to business, or might have been in business for years and in need of a shake up. You should however be comfortable with camera basics. 

By learning in a small group, you’ll be able to leverage the best of both the group and 1:1 worlds.  Together you’ll discuss and uncover questions you may never have thought of and will have the support of like minded people to help you through.  Of course every photographer is different and their goals and skills vary, so every participant will also have two personal 1:1 calls with Lisa to cover topics that are specific to them or where they may need additional assistance.

All for just $1297 per participant.  

How will it work?

The boot camp will run over 10 weeks starting on February 16th (depending on the participants we may break over easter or school holidays – this is a customised bootcamp, you’ll help call the shots).  There will be a weekly video masterclass lesson from Lisa followed by weekly group Skype calls, with actionable items for you to follow up during the week – the more you can do the more you’ll get out of the program.  You’ll finish the end of the 10 week program with more than just knowledge, you’ll already have done most of the work!

During the bootcamp, a facebook group will be set up and Lisa will be available to answer your questions.  All calls and videos will be recorded and kept available to you to download and keep forever.

The Ten week bootcamp will be filled on first come, first served basis and will run with a maximum of 5 participants.

While we will be sure to cover elements of shooting, post production & business, specific topics that might be covered include:


  • Portfolio reviews and advice.
  • Shooting families and young children.
  • A behind the scenes video of a portrait session
  • How to tame the monkeys and get the most of kids – even the two year olds.

  • Shooting family portraits that sell and keep clients coming back.
  • Keeping the creativity alive.
  • Setting up and running a studio from home.
  • Working in difficult lighting conditions

  • Setting goals for your business and creating an achievable plan to get you there.
  • Price list setup or review.
  • Studio management software and processes
  • Selling in person & online and how I make both work for me.
  • Marketing and branding.
  • Setting up your website and social media.

The possibilities are endless!

Who is Lisa?

For the past 10 years, Lisa has and continues to run the successful family portrait studio Lilypad Photography.  The last five years she has solely and comfortably supported her family financially while her husband has explored his own business and education dreams.  With a 7 & 9 year old, work life balance is high on her priority list, and she can help you make your business work with and for your family.

As well as succeeding in business, she has won the WA AIPP family photographer of the year for the last three years, was a finalist in the National Portrait Gallery Photography Portrait Prize and has achieved the Master Photographer status with the AIPP.

Over the years, there are very few processes, systems and applications for both business and work life balance she hasn’t explored.  There have been some glorious flops and wonderful successes.

Don’t waste time making the same mistakes, learn from someone who’s already lived it, survived and thrived and still loves photography!
