We are so thankful that we get to do our dream job everyday, but we honestly would have given up a long time ago if it wasn’t for the help of other photographers and business mentors who guided us along the way! These mentors showed us not only to start and run our business, but also how to deliver the best product, and how to do it in a way that doesn’t leave us feeling overworked and underpaid! Now we get to do the same and help other photographers chase their dreams, start their own business, or level up their current business!

If you haven’t started your business yet, it might seem like being a photographer or turning your passion into a job is impossible. Or if you have started you might feel like you just can’t compete, or you’re drowning in all the work and you should just give up! But the truth is that we live in a time where it is easier then ever to turn your dreams and passions into a real successful business. You got this! You might just need a little help or encouragement to get there!

If you’re looking for someone to tell you how to be the next big instagram famous photographer, then thats not us. (We don’t think anyone can do that honestly) What we can do is show you is how to do exactly what we did: take a small pipe dream side gig and turn it into a six figure business that provides a life where we get to spend our days playing on the beach, traveling the world and doing what we love instead of being cooped up in an office. We get multiple leads every day and make more then enough to support ourselves with only photography while living in one of the most expensive places in the country (paradise tax y’all).

We genuinely love helping other people turn their passion or idea into a reality. The reason we do this is because we love seeing others succeed, achieve their dreams, and just do something they never thought was possible for them. We’re not here to just take your money and throw some recycled advice at you. We want to invest in you and see your business transform into something that changes your life. So whether its photography or something totally different, a new business idea or something you’ve already started we would love to help give you the tools to succeed! You got this!

So How does it Work?

Mentoring gives you the opportunity to sit down with us and get direct input and help on your business! Think of this as a mini workshop, tailored just for you! We’ll have you tell us where you need help and what questions you have. Then we’ll sit down together or schedule a Skype or FaceTime  call and go through all your questions and needs!

“I absolutely adored meeting Allie and Taylor. Since my mentor session I immediately started taking what I learned and putting it into my business. The day after I got home I bought all my website platforms, started my branding, had a logo designed, and I have gained more than 200 followers in 3 weeks!

These two are so organized and I was so pleased by how much work they put in to create a session catered around my needs! I loved getting to see what a typical day of shooting is like for them and how they interacted with their clients. My favorite part by far was getting to shoot alongside them on the beach.

If you are considering investing in a mentor session with the Forwards I would highly recommend it. I have never felt so inspired and ready to take on my business more than I did after my session. Not to mention they are the most genuine people!” - Shayne Center Photo
