what we offer

Are you a photographer looking for educational opportunities? You've come to the right place! 

We love photography, but we're also educators at heart. Alex was a high school teacher for 14 years before making the leap to full-time photography and Jay is an English professor. Naturally, we have a passion for teaching other photographers and we love to share our knowledge about all things photography and business. 

We offer 1:1 or 2:1 coaching sessions, workshops, and free resources, too! Take a look around this section of our site and let us know how we can help you take your business to the next level.

about coaching sessions

Are you trying to establish your business but you don't know where to start? Or maybe you've started your business but are struggling with bookings and workflows.

Our 1:1 coaching sessions are perfect for photographers and other creatives who are ready to move their business forward. We are passionate about creating coaching sessions that are unique and customized to you, your goals, and your business so that you can walk away encouraged and inspired.

Coaching sessions can be done online or in-person. Before your session, you'll fill out a questionnaire that will help us decide on the topics you'd like to cover. In-person coaching sessions take place in our home in Howell, NJ. On the day of our session, we'll cover the topics you've chosen to address and work together to create an action plan so that you leave the session with useful, actionable items. We'll answer all your questions and make sure you have a clear vision on how to move your business forward. We’d be happy to discuss topics with you such as: 

• Getting Published 
• Workflows 

• Business Goals
• Culling & Editing


• Email Marketing / Marketing

• Blogging & SEO

"Alex and Jay have an incredible excellence in which they create their art and perform their business! That same excellence was carried out in our coaching session! They went above and beyond to make sure I walked away with all of my questions answered and that I had knowledge to apply to my own photography. My time with them was invaluable and I will definitely be booking them again for more instruction! It was worth the investment!

~ Sara Delling Photography

"My coaching session with Alex was a wonderful experience! I majored in photography in college, but that was ten years ago, long before I changed my focus to the art and business of wedding photography. While I've done pretty well for myself, I've never had the benefit of a mentor or coach, someone who could show me the ropes and guide me through this career. Spending a few hours with Alex and soaking in her feedback and advice helped me feel like I was making up for lost time! 

In fact, just a few days after our coaching session I had a consultation with a potential bride and groom. I used the insights I gained from Alex and the couple booked me for their wedding the very next day! I've already been able to put Alex's advice to good use, and I'm so grateful she was willing to share it."

~ Susan Hennessey Photography

"There is so much value in having a working professional to bounce ideas and questions off of, and my session with Alex lived up to (and surpassed) that description! She was patient and understanding, and genuinely interested in learning about how I operate before offering her recommendations. When it came time to give me coaching, she was confident in her suggestions while still making me feel comfortable in what I'd been doing. Her action plan for me intentionally pushed me outside of my comfort zone — just enough to push me to grow without being unattainable in my lifestyle. I couldn't recommend working with Alex more!"

"I would highly recommend Alex to any photographer looking to improve their business in any way. She has great experience with her and her husband's own stunning style and I believe Alex enjoys helping others to fine-tune, and find their own best shooting style and representation of it, in all areas. This includes from consulting with potential clients, to having a most valuable website that is attractive, useful and easy to navigate, and to social media and connecting with readers in a very meaningful way."

When I left teaching and made the leap into full-time photography I knew I wanted to make time for getting together with like-minded creatives in my area. I love everything the Rising Tide Society stands for and am excited to be the leader for the Central Jersey Tuesdays Together group! If you haven’t heard of the Rising Tide Society, it is an international movement for creative entrepreneurs and small business owners built on a foundation of community over competition. I truly believe that a rising tide lifts all boats and would love it if you joined us at our next meeting!
