Kind Words





As a brand new photographer I took a chance on Dawn, Emily, and this workshop. I no doubt made the right decision! It’s hard to even fully describe the gratefulness I feel for these two and their vision. They successfully brought together a small group of likeminded women to encourage creativity, share business models and send us off feeling like we CAN do this and our dreams are worth it. Before I arrived at the home I was nervous to meet such successful women and felt intimidated to say that I don’t know much about photography. The second I walked in the door I receive a warm welcome hug and all fears and insecurities disappeared. Both Dawn and Emily are unique in their career and both were transparent, helpful and motivating. This was the exact investment I needed to steer my dream in the right direction. Thank you both for your precious, open hearts!






I can’t say enough good things about Cultivate! It went above and beyond what I could have imagined! I feel like my whole business has changed and I will be able to start charging more and working less. Dawn and Emily are the most personable, open, and fun teachers/photographers. They make the week fun and share with you how they do what they do. It was an honor to hear their wisdom. They created an atmosphere of community over competition. We are all in this together and it was a breath of fresh air. I would encourage everyone to go! Just do it, I promise you won’t regret it.






I went to Cultivate Workshop Palm Springs and it was AMAZING! I’m had been thinking about going for a year and finally took the leap. I’m so glad I did! I learned so much from Dawn and Emily. They seriously went over everything you could think of plus they had put together some amazing shoots for us too! I left meeting so many talented women and just feeling refreshed and inspired. It was exactly what I needed. I would highly suggest this workshop plus Dawn and Emily are awesome!






Just went to the cultivate workshop to Portland and I had a blast! I was nervous before going because I didn't know a lot of girls that were going and I didn't know what to expect. But, the entire trip was definitely a positive and encouraging experience. There were 4 talks on social media, branding, work flow, and the business. There was an engagement shoot as well as a wedding shoot. Website critiques and editing together. I know what you're thinking it's a lot in 4 days! But I left rejuvenated, filled up, inspired, and more confident in my ability as a photographer. Plus, I left with 20 amazing friends. Each of the girls in the trip were all so talented and I got so much out of just their knowledge and talent alone! The food was amazing! I have major dietary restrictions and I didn't have to worry once whether I would eat well or not! I definitely recommend this trip and even though I felt like it was expensive in the beginning, I left feeling as though the trip was worth so much more!






I can't say enough great things about this workshop, hands down, the best! Dawn and Emily are the genuine, so helpful, and so incredibly talented, you can really feel their passion for helping other creatives achieve their dreams! No question was off limits, they poured their hearts and souls into helping all of us and I'm so very thankful I got to be a part of it! Plus, they had an amazing team with them who all helped make it a success...Maddie, Courtney and Leo, you all rocked! I had so much fun, I want to do it again!!
