Lauren knows her stuff. She doesn't try to teach you only her ways of doing things, but gives you many options. Plus, she tells you what you need to hear. Since this course, I'm more organized and doing things on a schedule is way better than just winging it every day. Having an actual plan makes a huge difference and keeps me visible to people.

HI! I'M LAUREN GRAYSON, YOUR BUSINESS COACH & EDUCATOR
LET'S DO THIS THING!
I'm a Mother of 3, wife, and I've been a professional photographer for over 10 years now. In 2022, my husband left his career in the medical field to join my business, and I'm showing you exactly how I started it all, with my photography business, inside The Business Blueprint.
BUT, THE BEGINNING WASN'T SO GLAMOROUS... 🥴
I started my business in a tiny 570 square foot apartment as a single Mother with an old, outdated DSLR, and a laptop that barely worked.
Truth be told, looking back, I had no business in starting a business. But, I had big dreams, goals, oh...and, I had just lost my job.
I worked my ass off and quickly learned that creativity just wasn't all that was going to be needed to survive. The big AHA moment for me? I was going to need to get good at business, if I wanted to avoid getting another job I hated, and turn my passion into a real career.
And so I did…and I watched my entire business transform in ways I could have never imagined. I doubled, then TRIPLED my previous income working a traditional full time job.
I spent years learning from business educators outside of the photography world. Now, I've put that education into creating a roadmap specifically for other photographers to start, build, and grow their business.
NOW IT'S YOUR TURN 💣
The Business Blueprint is the guide I wish I would have had back when I started my own business. And now, it's all yours, to learn at your own pace.
Messages from women inside The Business Blueprint...

YOU'LL BE ABLE TO:

EASILY MARKET YOUR BUSINESS
FEEL CONFIDENT AND ORGANIZED
Melissa increased engagement and leads!
"I love how open Lauren is with everything. I loved the content of this course because even though I have heard some of it before, you really made things click with me so I could actually make it work for me. Since the program and implementing the strategies, I have noticed more engagement on social media, and inquiries are booking more than before. Clients are happy with the communication and quicker galley delivery with my new system!"

Taryn used this to get out of a rut!
"I took one of Lauren's courses when I first started and it changed everything for me so I felt like the Business Blueprint would help me get out of my rut. I took marketing in college, but I was never able to have it cross over to my business. This course is awesome because it's everything important broken down into understandable dialogue and it's easy to know how to implement it into your business."
Taryn Schultz Photography
Cynthia had big light bulb moments!
"Before taking the Business Blueprint, I didn't find any success with the advice I was given. After working with Lauren, I realized that all aspects of my business are connected. Lauren's encouragement to bridge the disconnect I was feeling in how I was presenting myself to my clients and on social media motivated me to start opening up more. The content of this course is fantastic! I loved learning about my ideal client and storytelling, as well as what to include on each page of my website."

Amanda got organized and implemented so much!
"I loved seeing how Lauren does things. I was eager to dig into the new material each week and learn more from her! I actually finished the lessons! Since this course, I feel so much more organized and I've been able to create prep and styling guides, a referral program, feedback forms, and more!"
