1:1 coaching

a highly individualized coaching experience for creatives

What have you always dreamed of, but never believed could be possible?

It all starts by asking the beautifully simple question: What do I really want?

A good coach helps you see the next right step clearly, and pushes you to trust your own creative instincts – right to where all the magic really happens for you and that vision of your life that you want to create. Once you feel what it’s like to align your life and your work with your inside creative self, it’s hard not to believe that anything might be possible.

I’ve helped dozens of women make the shift to clarity, confidence, and ease in their businesses, their creative work, and their lives, and I am 100% committed to helping you feel deeply aligned in your journey.

“I’ve had the honor of being coached by Kristyn, and there’s no other way to describe it than life transformative. My biggest takeaways weren’t just about the system I’d originally hired her to help me set up, it was all about how I was showing up in my life. It was about why I was continuously blocking my joy and not allowing myself to fully celebrate my life, as it was. I will be forever grateful for that hour that Kristyn spent with me because it resulted in massive shifts for me. Paying for that coaching call was some of the best money I have ever spent – her wisdom is unlike anything I’ve encountered before. If you’re ready to go beyond the surface and dig deep to achieve real, impactful results, Kristyn is your person.”

“When my business felt like it had stalled out, and I was hitting a wall, I reached out to Kristyn for creative coaching. She asks the hard questions, helps you dig deep and see what you may be dancing around. Together we have worked to elevate my business into something that leaves not only my heart full but also my client’s hearts full as well. I wholeheartedly recommend working with her if you want to take your business and creativity to a new level.”

“Kristyn has touched my life so many ways. It started when she reached out as a complete stranger and spoke kind words to me about the work I was doing. She has photographed my family and it has been hands down one of the best investments I’ve made. I’ve also had the privilege of mentoring with her where she asked me really important questions – beyond the subject of what we’re addressing. She goes deep and is able to think quickly on the spot about the things we experience as creatives, both personally and professionally. She basically speaks to your soul and because of that, it allows the freedom to answer questions in a really meaningful way. Kristyn is a wonderful human, I’m honored to know her.”

How can a coach help me?

It all begins by asking the question: What do I really want?

While it may seem counterintuitive, starting with a big-picture question helps lead us to clarity about all the daily things we need to do to get there – and who we need to be in our business and our lives to stay there. As solopreneurs, we’re often bouncing on a daily basis through a to-do list a mile long (one that never really gets shorter) – and taking the time to ask these deep questions actually builds the foundation for every tactical choice that comes afterward as we build our business and refine our creative voice.

My friends over at the National Association of Professional Child Photographers recently asked me to write a piece for Inspired Magazine about my journey as a coach, and why having a coach can be such a key part of your evolution.
