Becky Nowak recently launched her photography business Arise Images and it has been such a privilege to mentor her over the last few months and see her grow in confidence and step out to use her gifts in visual storytelling, the art of noticing small beautiful details of life, and genuine care for others in starting her business. Watch her grow friends!! I am so excited for you Becky!
I asked Becky what the mentorship relationship was like for her and she shared,
“Working with Roxanne is a JOY. She knows her stuff, has extensive experience, will make you laugh and is not afraid to talk about the hard things. Roxanne is the perfect blend of compassionate and unafraid of the mess of all that comes with trying to grow as an entrepreneur and grow a business. She pushes for success by building you up, staying organized about your goals and making sure you are trying new things in order to grow. Plus, she’s a blast. Like such a free, fun person filled with life. 100% invest in yourself and trust Roxanne to empower you to grow and succeed. “
As part of mentorship session I offer the opportunity to allow you to get in front of the camera- for me it is important as being photographed is vulnerable and if we ask our clients to trust us we should do the same- Becky was so much fun on our mini session!! After she received her gallery she messaged me, “
“As a photographer I was nervous to get on the other side of the camera. I much prefer to be the one giving directions and capturing the images. Roxanne helped put me at ease, gave excellent directions, nailed the posing when I felt awkward and gave me the space to chill out, have some fun and stop taking myself so seriously! My images are fire, people. I look beautiful and confident and like a badass woman entrepreneur. Everything I wanted and she knew how to deliver.”
