CLIENT TESTIMONIALS 

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

do you offer in-person coaching? i am currently all booked up for in-person coaching sessions at this time. skype calls are great because we can be more flexible with time of day and get you booked faster!

can you help me with the legal side of my business? no, i cannot offer legal advice! i encourage you to find an accountant or business lawyer in your area who can assist you and your business with tax questions. as for photography contracts, which would also fall under legal advice, check out honeybook for so many options on contracts. they have it all, from wedding to standard portraits to even styled shoots! any other advice such as “how do i register as an LLC in my city?” can be a quick conversation with an accountant . :)

WILL YOU BE ABLE TO HELP ME WITH ANY GEAR or technology ISSUES I AM currently HAVING? THERE IS SO MUCH TECHNOLOGY OUT THERE FOR OUR GEAR, SOFTWARE, ETC! I AM NOT AN EXPERT WHEN IT COMES TO ASSISTING WITH GEAR technical ISSUES NOR DO I KNOW ABOUT EVERY piece OF equipment ON THE MARKET. HOWEVER, MOST CAMERA MANUFACTURERS AND BRANDS HAVE INCREDIBLE HELP DESKS AND CUSTOMER SERVICE OF THEIR OWN, SO THAT WOULD BE THE PLACE TO GO!

do you offer social media management? i did social media management for three years (including in-house for a company for a year!) and i do not offer management anymore.

"I never believed that there was a certain way to gain more followers or that anyone could actually help me get my feed to the way I had envisioned it. That is until I spoke with Jessica Whitaker. Jessica not only gave me the best advice to helping me grow my following base but her tips worked. To say I was shocked is an understatement! The thirty minute Skype call I had with Jessica was the most rewarding thing that I have done for my Instagram to date and I hope to work with her again soon! If you are debating working with Jessica, let me just tell you - DO IT! " -Madeline M. Musa

"I bought the full social media mentor package from Jessica and all I can say is if you don’t get mentored by Jessica you played yourself. First off, Jessica is literally the sweetest and answered every. single. question I asked no matter how annoying I was. Jessica also taught me strategies about Instagram I would have NEVER thought about when posting to gain my ideal clients. Ever since I came back from my end of semester hiatus with Social Media I have gained back followers I have lost and also gained new followers. More importantly, I have been booking like crazy, this whole summer I have had just about every weekend booked along with my first 3 weddings, AND I just booked my first out-of-state wedding! Seriously, treat yourself and treat your business by getting mentored by Jessica!"  -Tajmia Gianna

"My coaching session with Jessica helped me in more ways than one. Not only did she teach me new things about content creation and social media, but she helped validate the good work our company is doing. She was quick to start the session, thorough, and was able to give so much information in only 30 minutes." - Jenni Beaver

"My 30 minute Skype session with Jessica felt like I was chatting with a really knowledgeable friend. She went through my Instagram withe me and gave me feedback. After she gave me a bunch of tips that could help take my feed to the next level. She worked very fast and got down to the information that I needed right away. She took the time to answer my questions very thoroughly. I felt like she wanted to help me grow my photography business and see me succeed.  I am excited to implement the tips she gave me and see my following and engagement grow." - Sarah Wolfe

"Jessica's mentoring sessions are one of the best things you can do for your photography/social media. She is so easy to talk with and answers your questions before you even ask them! She definitely knows what she is talking about. We went over my Instagram account and she gave me some great pointers. In a little over a week, I have gained over 60 followers and my posts are reaching a wider audience and have TRIPLED in likes and comments. Companies and brands are even reaching out to work with me now! All of this is because of a 30 minute session with Jessica!" --Daryl Batt

"Jessica so graciously accepted a Skype call with me when I was in need of Instagram coughing. Jessica gave me sound advice on how to have a well branded theme that showcases only my best work to attract the perfect clients for me. After this 30 minute call, I walked away with a few solid tools to increase my awareness on Instagram. I am glad to have come across her on YouTube to ensure me that I am going to a qualified expert of help." - Francesca Ragucci

"Sessions like this are always a bit of a iffy purchase  - but after my call with Jessica I had no doubts that th emoney I spent was put to good use. Jessica excels in putting together a comprehensive lesson plan together, if you’re really motivated in your photographic aspirations, the amount of information she can cram into 30 minutes will be everything you’re looking for and then some. She's also super adaptable so if you have any one-off curveball questions, you can be sure she'll be able to take care of it." -Marcus Cho

"I went to Jessica thinking I would get a few tips on Instagram, but instead she told me way more than I expected! The $99 was worth every penny! She was super informative and answered every question I had. She went over everything from your Insta bio, what hashtags to use, how to create your theme etc... Everything she went over I probably would never learned on my own. I think I might even go back for another session!" -Mitchell Rusch

"I highly recommend Jessica's coaching sessions! I got the $300 session and it was so worth it! At first I was hesitant, not because I didn't think Jessica knew her stuff, but because I was broke and didn't know if I could really learn enough I didn't already know to be worth $300. Let me tell you, the effectiveness of Jessica's suggestions blew me away! I gained 400 followers in less than 2 weeks without giving that much effort and when I have more time to spend on these methods, they will be even more effective! All of the tips she gave are so effective and so many are things I would have never thought of. Some of the tips expand on things I've heard about, but explain exactly how to do them in an effective manner for your particular Instagram page! Definitely book a coaching session with Jessica!" -Ashley Robertson
