Invest in yourself and your business


I wish I’d known what I know now when I was first starting out. It would have saved me from a lot of unnecessary work and heartache.

I’ve gone from basing my prices on guesswork and my competition (in short it didn’t pan out well), and saying yes to EVERYTHING and more to continually raising my prices and being profitable and working only with clients I’m crazy about. I have finally achieved a healthy work/life balance, have faith in what I am doing and know how to leverage social media and my website to attract the people I want in my business.

Get clear on what you want to offer and to who

Get help with pricing, marketing, branding, goal setting, workflow, productivity, which are basically the essentials for creating a successful business. My offers extend from single sit down mentor session to a series with follow ups and homework.


  • OF COURSE I WOULD RECOMMEND THIS TO A FRIEND! Yes!!! Having this mentorship experience with Ingvild was truly a light for me, first because I love her work, the true passion in her pictures, her personality, the light and editing, everything inspires me! So, having the opportunity to have the photographer that inspires me the most as my mentor, that means a lot to me, and words can't explain how I feel... I'm just really thankful and grateful for this amazing experience. <3

  • I was feeling stuck and unsure on what steps to take to get my business started. The marketing, the sessions, all of it. After my mentorship there was so much clarity and I was able to jump right into business planning and get work done with confidence and assurance. Thank you! Thank you!

  • I definitely had the best experience with you. I haven't had a negative experience with a mentor yet but you were by far the most knowledgeable. Your feedback and advice helped clear some of my doubt and questions that another mentor wasn't able to. The advice you gave me over pricing my photography was a ginormous help. It gave me some solid ground to build on. I'd really like to work with you again. I had a great experience with you and I wouldn't have changed anything. You answered all my questions and gave excellent feedback. You offer great advice, and I really like that you are also very knowledgeable in regards of the business aspect of photography. I truly appreciated your commitment to seeing the complimentary session through considering the time difference. That really showed me your dedication as a mentor. You were great, I hope to work with you again!
