The Grounded Workshop

Being grounded in the basics | Growing a brand | Cultivating a workflow | Producing an unforgettable experience




Do you love coffee and carbs? Want to meet some other amazing local creatives? Want to capture a top notch styled shoot? Want to hear my story? Want to capture some magic with me? 

In the Grounded Workshop I go through every aspect of my business from what equipment I have to what I wear on a shoot to how I back up my files to how I get my clients to re book me every year. I love love spending time with those who have the same dreams as I do. One of my new favorite things has been to mentor people and share my journey as a photographer and a business woman. But I’m excited to finally offer a day filled with education, inspiration, creating memories and laughter & capturing to give you a wonderful start to your business! 

My workshopsl provide food, coffee of course, a styled shoot, time for questions and networking, editing and camera tutorials, an opportunity for a headshot and a goodie bag filled with lots of pretty things. Are you as excited as I am?  

I want you to feel comfortable coming into the workshop and confident going out. So I cap all workshops off at 10 attendees to make sure we keeping things intimate. 


If you’re a female photographer that is newer to the business, wants help finding their brand and getting their name out there, needs a workflow, wants to learn more about how to pose and prep, needs help deciding what is the right choice for backing up. 

Because starting a business can be scary and a HUGE investment I want to make this fun filled day as affordable as possible! 


The next Grounded Workshop will be announced soon! September or October 2019 in West Chester, PA.

$350 | All day workshop, two meals included, swag bag, head shot, & styled shoot.

We’ll start out the day with coffee and pastries, introductions, branding, workflow. After lunch we’ll dive into posing & camera settings. We will capture a styled shoot that will give everyone opportunity to lead and pose and to second shoot. To conclude the day we will go over downloading, backing up, culling and editing, the delivery processes and how to ask clients for reviews. 


Where do I begin?! This workshop was absolutely amazing. Lily was the best host, extremely thoughtful and intentional with everything she served for us and how she presented all of the information to us. I learned so much more in depth about branding, styling, and interacting with clients. Not only did I learn about all of these very important aspects of owning my own photography business but I got to know so many amazing ladies in the industry. Where we all could relate to our everyday struggles and celebrate our accomplishments! I seriously could not recommend this workshop more if I tried. Everyone that can do it, should do it! Thanks Lily for being an awesome teacher + grounding us in the basics!

 The Grounded workshop with Lily was the first workshop I had attended, and it was everything and more than I expected! First off, her house and the space she created for the workshop was the absolute cutest, and the gift bags she made for each of us were so thoughtful, it even had a customized notebook and necklace with my name! You could just see and feel how much she poured her heart into every single detail of the day. All of her teaching was spot on and exactly what I needed to help kickstart my photography business and get into the wedding field. Then we went straight to a styled shoot where I could directly apply all that I had just learned, the couple was so cute together and the details were absolutely perfect. And throughout the whole day Lily was encouraging, inspiring, and uplifting us all! 

It couldn't have been more perfect! If you are just starting out in photography, or just need to get grounded in the basics, this is an investment you won't regret making!

I’m so so happy I signed up to go to the Grounded Workshop with Lily! She was AMAZING. So focused on details and making the day not only educational and hands on, but a wonderful experience for us all around. Lily was super sweet and accommodating to make sure we were all comfortable and taken care of, and she was open and willing to answer any questions we had throughout the day. She really went above and beyond! Not to mention the styled shoot she put together was beyond gorgeous. I’m still on cloud 9 from it all!
