Workshops


Its been a dream of mine to regularly host workshops for my lovely clients & colleagues.  This page is where my dream came true!

I’ve designed workshops with parents in mind.  The classes mix being photographed with learning something useful & fun.  The “something useful” sometimes involves a collaboration with a fellow creative like my makeup & hair artist, florist etc.

Here you can find information on how to register for my upcoming workshops!

WORKSHOP VIBE

Think fun, happy, pampering and useful.  My workshops are intimate and allow you to learn at your own pace and have fun.  You will not disappear into a sea of students and get lost!

My workshops are usually hosted in my photo studio in Arcadia and I always provide munchies, fancy beverages and goody bags for kids (when we do kid workshops).

Before I was a photographer, I was an accountant for 15 years…and 8 years later, I still run a boutique accounting firm.  This half day workshop is tailored to my fellow creatives (photographers, event planners, artists, yes YOU!).  I’ll cover the 4 most valuable accounting-related matters every entrepreneur should master.

  1. What a proper set of books for a creative business should look like (to minimize your audit risk).
  2. California Sales tax rules that apply to us in the creative service + product business
  3. Payroll basics (including the new rules on independent contractors)
  4. The best accounting practices that every creative should be slaying with.
    Tickets include 1 seat in my infamous fancy small class environment, pretty take home cheat sheets & lunch.

Pricing TBD
