Solve your pricing struggles. Sale ends tomorrow.

Pricing For Creatives_Mae Mae_Instagram Graphic II (1)

If you’re really wanting to make a change in your business but the thought of parting with $375 for Pricing for Creatives hurts, we hear you.

We realize that the people who need this course the most may have the hardest time affording it. However, if you really want this course but feel like it’s a lot of money, that may actually be the best indicator that you need this course. Studies show that you will be more likely to create a change in your life when it costs you something.
We really want you to get to a more sustainable, comfortable, and thriving place in your work and life but we also believe it needs to cost you something for you to actually make real changes in your life. So we wanted to make this cost something but not as much as it actually should because we also want it to be within your reach.

Shanna’s normal hourly rate is $250/hr. If we were to set the price for this course according to the number of hours Shanna put into creating it, well, we knew it would price most people out. There is also way more content in this course than is shared in a day-long workshop and those are generally closer to the $2k range (plus travel, hotel, etc on top of that). On top of that, we’ve seen friends actually apply these principles to their business and double or triple their sales within a year. How much is that worth?

We wholeheartedly believe in this content and its ability to transform business and lives. This is our solution to one of the biggest struggles we hear everyday in our community. And because we know this is a big investment for some of you we also made a way to offer a payment plan through Affirm with payments as low as $33 a month.

If you sign up by tomorrow, you’ll lock in the sale price of $375. (It jumps to $525 on Friday.) We hope you can find a way to make it work.

p.s Did you catch our webinar yesterday with Shanna Skidmore? She spoke with floral + event design and planner Jessica Zimmerman, and photographer Rachel May about how they applied Shanna’s teachings on pricing to their businesses, despite being in smaller markets.

Moody Bridal Portrait Session in England

The dark sense of moodiness in this bridal portrait session from Kristen Parker is incredibly luxurious. With a flavor of old-world, aristocratic elegance, dramatic natural lighting, and some of the most stunning natural vistas (in fact, we’re finding ourselves quite jealous of our English friends right about now), this bride couldn’t have chosen her photo locations any better. We also love to see brides embracing their natural beauty, and the simple makeup choices made here are perfect: a slightly darker eye and natural hair will never go wrong.

More from the photographer, Kristen Marie Parker:
“There isn’t, arguably, a more magical place in the world than the English countryside of Cornwall, surrounded by the Celtic Sea. At it’s heart, set on the River Tiddy and in the small and historic village town of St Germans, lies the stately home and wedding venue, Port Eliot. The Port Eliot estate, home to the aristocratic Eliot family since the 16th Century, includes 6,000 acres of breathtaking scenery. 

Our shoot inspiration came not only from the estate but from the spirit of the land with its moody autumn fog and endless green pastures. We wanted to capture the contrasts and rawness of the season while staying true to the richness of the landscape’s deep and hushed hues. It was important for the design to reflect a modern, yet genuine wedding of a current bride in a historical setting. So rather than creating a ‘mood board’ to determine the design, we relied on the story that developed through the relationships we formed locally: We were incredibly fortunate to work with a talented local florist, Becca at The Garden Gate Flower Company, who not only designed our arrangements but provided the florals and foliage grown on her farm. And then we met Emily, our model and our ‘bride’, who embodied the vulnerability and grace that only an heir to a great estate can. It was as if modern-day Downton Abbey had manifested when Emily wore the Claire Pettibone gown generously provided by the area’s very special boutique, The Bridal House of Cornwall.”

Colorful Coastal Engagement Session in Italy

Based on this amazing set of engagement photos from the Amalfi Coast in Italy, we have a new rule: everyone must travel to Italy at least once in their life. Sounds like a dream, right? For Aston and Victoria, at least, this dream destination was the perfect choice for their engagement session with Darin Images. Turquoise seas, ancient architecture, mountainous vistas – each of these images showcases the beauty of the land and the sweet, comfortable intimacy the couple shares.

More from the photographer, Darin Images:
“When Aston asked me if I would like to shoot an engagement in Italy, I was over the moon! While we were tossing around ideas of Rome and Venice, the Amalfi coast came to mind as it had always been a dream place for his fiancee, Victoria, and for me. Apart from the beauty of the Mediterranean landscape and coastal mountains cascading into a turquoise sea in a stunning panorama of picturesque villages, how could I say “No” to the origin of vongole, my all-time Italian favorite dish?
 
After a few months of research and preparation, we decided to shoot between Sorrento and Salerno, encompassing the most photogenic town of Positano. For the second part of our shoot, we cruised along the gorgeous coastline up then went up to the high altitude of Ravello for the grand historic villas. Working in new places is a challenge., and I am so lucky to have such amazing support.”
