The Sophia Co




When I started my photography journey I was so fearful of asking for help. I learned mostly everything I know now by trial and error and by taking risks, trying different things, making discoveries along the way. Sometimes I nailed it right away, but most time I was frustrated and stuck. All because I felt I couldn’t ask for help.

Mentoring sessions are a way of sharing what I have learned in my journey as a photographer and artist so that we can work together to take you and your work to the next level, without you having to go through the same painful and long process I went through. “Next level” can mean different things to different people, so it’s important to know that we will cater to your specific needs and we will address those things that you desire to make better.

If you’re looking for what gear I use, it’s all here.


one-on one mentoring // $700

If you’re local, we’ll meet at a coffee shop (or gelato shop) on the North Shore of Oahu. If you’re not local, we can facetime!

This is a 2 hour mentoring session where we’ll focus on what you want to focus, so bring all your questions!

($200 deposit due at the time of booking, remaining balance due the day of our meeting)


one-on-one mentorinG + live shoot // $1,200

In addition to the 2 hr mentoring session, we will also go out and shoot a live session 40 minutes before sunset time on the North Shore of Oahu. This can be a family or a maternity shoot and we will focus on giving cues and direction so that our “clients” feel comfortable and we can capture authentic moments. We’ll also go over camera setting and how to capture light effectively.

($200 deposit due at the time of booking, remaining balance due the day of our meeting)

*$50 extra fee if you want a location outside of the North Shore


One-on-One MentorinG + LIVE UNDERWATER SHOOT // $1,350

In addition to a 2 hr mentoring session, we will head to the ocean to shoot an underwater couples session. If we can find an expecting couple, score, but those are hard to come by for underwater shoots.

*You must have underwater gear/housing for your equipment and you must be a good swimmer.

($200 deposit due at the time of booking, remaining balance due the day of our meeting)
