Simply put...EVERYTHING makes this program different, but our favorite part is the adaptive way we serve up fresh content each month. Most online courses will start you at the beginning of the program filmed years ago, leaving you with an ever-evolving gap between you and your peers in this industry.

Having relevant content has been a huge problem in the online education world, which is why so many photographers will take course after course and still feel like they are two steps behind.

Unlike most online courses, the Collective is filmed a couple of months before the release dates with the most current methods trending in the industry instead of starting at you at square one. Inside the Collective you will still have backlog access to all of my recent teachings so you can brush up on past methods while also getting the most current released education for each new month freshly filmed.

The Collective strives to get you the results and skills that are happening in the NOW! Consider this your time machine to a blooming career! 

What makes the Collective different?

On the 1st and 3rd Monday of every month, we’ll drop a new video that will cover a number of topics, past videos have included: newborn, family, mini-sessions, lighting (studio and natural), maternity, beach sessions, setting up your business, editing, sitter sessions and so much more! And months with extra Mondays? That means bonus content!

The first video will be our guest feature of the month and will stay up for thirty days to all Collective members. During this time you'll be able to ask the guest questions in our exclusive Facebook group! Once the 30 days are up the guest feature will be retired into our vault and a new guest feature video will be released!

On the 3rd Monday of every month you'll get a fresh video from Rachel herself! These videos never expire as long as you have your Collective Membership and cover all types of sessions and editing!

I'm Rachel your regular monthly teacher! I live in the good old heart of Indianapolis with my husband, Nick and our little trio of children, Brynn, Nicholas and Josie. I'm always cold, nearly always barefoot, passionate about newborn safety, oversized t-shirts and helping others. I hate cancer, working out and cucumbers (but pickles are cool).

In 2007, I was a stay at home mom who had a knack for using my Konica Minolta camera to take photos of my two (now 3) young children. That hobby slowly bloomed into a small photography business and I took up my first ever client via Craigslist in the spring of 2008. Ten years later, my passion to help other photographers turn hobbies into businesses and businesses into successful careers has been the driving force in creating the industry’s top source of online education.
