what our members are saying...

"I need to express some gratitude here today. I just had a $3K sale and am in disbelief. My client cried tears of joy looking at her portraits, and is so excited to display her motherhood portraits all over her home. Just a few months ago I was charging $625 for all digitals and walking away from sessions feeling like something had to change. Now a whole new world has been opened up. This education and mentoring is changing life for me and my family. Words can't do justice to how thankful I am to have connected with you guys"


"Thank you to Allison Craig, Jenny Cruger, Kim Box for creating this amazing membership. I just had my largest sale to date this afternoon - $3000 (+$200 session fee)! It was with a repeat client from 2 years ago who only spent $400 with me, which included ALL of the digital files. Prior to joining this group, I had been struggling. I would feel resentful after every single viewing/ordering session because I wasn't getting anywhere near what I needed to be making. Because, I didn't have the confidence to charge what I needed to make to actually run my business. Since joining this group, I am now charging what I need to be making based off of my CODB and not just on what I 'felt' like I should be charging based on my work/experience. My last two months in my business, I've made the most I've ever made in a single month and now I'm looking at an even better month this month. I don't feel like I would have been able to get there without the amazing resources/education in the membership as well as all of the encouragement/help in this group."


"When I first joined TMA in 2018, I was charging all-inclusive rates around $600 for a full session or $275 for a mini. I was three years into my business and while I had taken baby steps to charge that much (I started around $150 when I first began), I was feeling so burned out but was terrified to make any kind of dramatic change. Fast forward to today - I know what my time and skill is worth. I moved across the country and despite a pandemic and the move, almost two years into my time in Dallas, I'm now fully booked almost every month at my new prices - session fee + a la carte for digitals and artwork. This week I had my largest sale to date - $4750! - for a 7 frame gallery wall and digital images and two other $3k sales. In the past for me that would have taken nearly 2 months of sessions to earn that much. I just wanted to share to inspire those who are afraid of making a leap - you can do it! With a ton of hard work and hustle, it can be done. The TMA village has been so instrumental, both in the videos and even more, via the wonderful photographers and business women who have taught me so much! Thank you TMA. Since joining this group, I am now charging what I need to be making based off of my CODB and not just on what I 'felt' like I should be charging based on my work/experience. My last two months in my business, I've made the most I've ever made in a single month and now I'm looking at an even better month this month. I don't feel like I would have been able to get there without the amazing resources/education in the membership as well as all of the encouragement/help in this group."


"A few months ago I had no idea where I wanted my business to go other than to be "successful" and prayed I could do this full time. After joining this group, finding some amazing like-minded entrepreneurs and friends, I finally know it's possible."


"I have been and other forums and groups and it is totally overwhelming. Always felt like I couldn’t find anything. Y’all have done a tremendous job. And everything is completely user-friendly."


"This is the best money I've spent on education for photography."


"A BIG thank you to Jenny Cruger and Allison Craig - you two ROCK in creating this group years back. I don’t think I would have pursued a motherhood event without this group, and my 3rd year was the biggest success yet! "
