Good news: there's a simpler way to beautifully document your life and become the photographer you've always wanted to be. Let me show you how!
Enrollment for The Documented Heart Guided Practice 2023 is now open!
Truth Bomb: You want to feel confident picking up your camera and capturing the magic of your life. And badly!
You want to finish that daily photo project – maybe even a 365 – and make it all the way to the end with gorgeous photos to show for it.
You want to be present in the life you’re living and truly feel like you’re an artist.
But your efforts thus far haven’t helped you get there.
Maybe you’ve learned some lessons (like what NOT to do), but no matter how much you work at it… you still somehow backslide into old habits, or overwhelm, or self-doubt… with little to show for it.
Giving up for good sounds tempting when it looks like NOTHING will work.
But the thing is...
You’re COMMITTED to finding clarity and confidence in your photography journey – and cracking the code on how to better your craft and prioritize your dreams.
You’ve already tried…
It’s frustrating and demoralizing to feel like you’ve tried (or at least considered) it all, and to be honest you’re TIRED and ready for a different way.
With this program, I’ve helped dozens of clients build confidence in their ability as photographers, gain true clarity about their creative voice, and successfully document their lives for an entire year.
If you’re truly ready to find fulfillment in your creative path and feel deeply confident in your photography, The Documented Heart Guided Practice was designed specifically to help you get there.
My approach is different from taking one-off online classes, stalking social media for solutions, or trying to struggle through a daily photo project on your own.
Because for the entirety of our year together, I offer focused and supportive coaching, alongside a structured curriculum, and a safe community space to share your work, creating a transformative experience like no other.
Over your 12 months of working through
The Documented Heart Guided Practice,
we will focus on the following goals:
The Documented Heart seeks creatively curious, aspiring photographers with specific criteria to apply
It is awe-inspiring to support aspiring photographers in cultivating creative fulfillment in their art, and confidence in their technical skills; but I must make sure you are qualified (and ready) before I commit to working with you in this program.
The fact is, I only accept a limited number of participants at any given time – and because of my guarantee below – I only work with those who are qualified and ready to show up, do the work, and focus to achieve the objectives of the program alongside other students within the program.
Because of this, it’s imperative that every participant is truly ready for this level of growth – for finding clarity and confidence in your photography journey – and has the courage and drive to make the most of their time in The Documented Heart Guided Practice to get there!
This is for you if...
This is NOT for you if...
The format of The Documented Heart Guided Practice is what makes it truly unique and helps you achieve results that were previously not possible. When we speak, I’ll explain the entire format and structure in detail.
For now, what’s most important to know is that we use a blend of curriculum, coaching, and community support which include:
Accountability with your coach and your community, structured curriculum for your technical education, and the comprehensive tools to continually support you and your mindset throughout the program ensure that if you’re ready to do the work, we’ll help you get to the finish line with joy and ease.
I’ll guide you through the journey of daily shooting and teach you how to build the base of confidence you need to own and care for your unique creative voice within your 365 and beyond. Many students start confidently planning their next big creative project before we've even completed our year together.
We’ll start with the very basics of how to show up every day for yourself, and I’ll teach you how to build the integrity of discipline. Get ready to learn
how this superpower can help
you accomplish any creative goal you have.
That said, you might still have hesitations about whether what you’re reading on this page is truly possible for you and if The Documented Heart is the best choice to get you there.
Here’s the deal: The Documented Heart is an elite option and the investment reflects that. That might make you question if it’s really “worth it,” and I get that.
So in case you are still hesitating to apply, here’s a guarantee that you can bank on:
I am willing to promise you that if you participate in all of the calls, implement all of the work, and show up to shoot every day for 365 days, and you do not see growth in your confidence or your technical skills as a result of your work in this program, then I will continue to work with you 1-on-1 for no additional cost until you’ve completed all 5 program objectives.
If you’re truly ready to build confidence in your ability as a photographer and successfully document your life for an entire year and you’re willing to do the work to get there with the guidance and support of The Documented Heart Guided Practice, there is absolutely no reason NOT to apply today.
But what you’ve been doing hasn’t been working and it’s time for that to stop, once and for all.
You’re here reading this page because you’re an aspiring photographer who’s SO done with….
You’re ready for REAL answers. REAL coaching and support. REAL community.
Do you know what happens when you finally know how to capture your life every day with ease?
Results don’t happen by accident.
They happen because you have followed a system and process, taken the steps, done the work, and received the help necessary to get where you want to go. Period.
If you’re ready to finally see the beauty of your life as it is, and your ability to capture it with confidence and clarity, let’s do this.
And I've already helped dozens of aspiring photographers find clarity and confidence while completing their year-long program with me. So I already know exactly what you’re signing up for when you decide to enroll in The Documented Heart.
But I understand that you’re not behind the scenes seeing the wins that I'm seeing every day. So why don’t I bring you behind the scenes?
You don’t just have to listen to me go on about how incredible the program is. Instead, you can hear directly from other photographers, just like you, who’ve experienced these results firsthand.
When I started with The Documented Heart (TDH), all I knew was that I wanted to commit to making creativity a focus for my life in the coming year.
Well, nearly 365 days later, I’ve accomplished that and so much more. I’m sure I, like others, had so much hope for 2021 after the tough days of 2020; however, 2021 was as—if not more—challenging; on days when I would have rather pulled up the covers and retreated from “real life,” this project grounded my days in a desire, a purpose, and a greater sense of meaning and clarity.
I feel this experience has opened up new ways of looking at myself and the world, and I find I take note more often—of just about everything. I stop more to take in a scene, notice a small detail, soak up fleeting moments.
This experience amplified everything—helping me to clear away the clutter in my mind (not totally gone but getting there!) and make space for what really matters to me.
While TDH might be simplified as a daily photo project, it’s so, so much more; I can honestly say the experience thus far has been nothing short of inspiring and transformative.
When I first signed up for TDH2020, it had been 10 years since I had last completed a 365 project. In that time a lot in my life changed. I was back to working full time outside the home, my kids were teenagers and older and had zero interest in being my muse.
I knew there was beauty in my life, but didn’t know how to capture it. I was overwhelmed with perfectionism paralysis.
My brain was in overdrive with unanswered questions: what will I photograph? Who is it for? Is it even worth it? Are my photos even any good? Am I worth it? What’s the actual point? All of those questions and more were answered.
The space Kristyn has created is unlike any other I’ve been honored to be in. She and the other students are warm, welcoming, understanding, loving, and encouraging in all the best ways. In my first 365, I grew technically in my photography. In TDH I grew as a human that is also a photographer. And I couldn’t be more grateful.
Unlike other 365 photography courses, The Documented Heart doesn't prescribe exactly what to photograph or how to measure your work (especially against unsustainable metrics of perfection!)
We don’t give you a huge PDF and a two-week window to ask every question you'll have...for the entirety of the year.
We don’t set unattainable standards that leave aspiring photographers frustrated and stuck.
Instead, The Documented Heart Guided Practice celebrates your authenticity as an artist and supports your creative, technical, and personal growth for all 365 days.
The Documented Heart Guided Practice is different because we'll focus on your holistic development as a photographer, and the ease you deserve to feel in embracing your remarkable and unique talents.
As a member of The Documented Heart, you will not only be guided step-by-step through the educational curriculum, but you will be supported, respected, encouraged, and held accountable to the goals you’ve set for yourself.
The best part is how absolutely doable this will feel once you have the right framework and support in your corner.
Don’t spend another moment stalking my content and re-reading this page.
If you know this is for you, trust yourself enough to take this step.
Because your most-confident, future-photographer self is waiting.
