How Do I Schedule a CONSULTATION?

E-mail me: Eliesa@eliesajohnson.com or fill out the contact form on this site! I will then be in touch to schedule a date that works best for the both of us!

I book out consultations about 3-4 weeks in advance. 


I'm not sure how much time I need for my consultation, but I don't think I need a full day. Do you have any suggestions on time?

For clients interested in hourly consultation - and also for clients on a budget - I recommend starting with 2 hours. This is a great starting point and allows you to gauge if you need more time or if that was enough!

If you decide to add on time, we can certainly set up another date to continue your consultation.

For clients wanting a complete overhaul of their business, the full day consultation is perfect for you! 


What if I live outside of Minnesota? Do you offer consultations in other states?

I offer hourly consultations online for many clients out of state. Face time, Skype and Google Hangouts have proven to be great tools. I also have people who simply want to talk on the phone and this is also a great option!

I can also travel to you for your full day consultation. This is often a great experience and opportunity to learn in your space. Travel fees will apply. 


Will you be hosting any upcoming workshops?

yes! We will be offering workshops! Part of launching Eliesa consults was to give the workshops a place to live.

Please keep checking the blog for the latest workshop announcements! 



How do we prepare for my Consultation?

It's my goal to personalize and tailor your consultation specifically to you! After you book your consultation, we will talk about your goals, topics and what you would like to achieve with our time together.

I encourage all of our consult clients to spend some time writing down questions, so we can go into the day with intention.

I will definitely spend time looking at your website and social accounts prior to our session to get a good sense of where your business and work is at! 


Do I need to bring anything to my full day Consultation?

For online consultations, all you need to bring is yourself, your notes and (hopefully) a great internet connection. 

For Hourly consultations or full day, I suggest bringing your notes, laptop / ipad with work, and any marketing materials you want to go over, if applicable. 

For all consultations, I recommend coming with an open mind and willingness to learn! 


How do I pay?

You will be billed for the consultation time 1 week prior to your consultation. The Payment is due within 1 week of your session.

I accept all major credit cards, paypal , personal checks and cash. 



My Consult was everything I needed and More. I came to my full-day mentorship with a plethora of questions ranging from financial strategy to studio lighting and styling. Eliesa's extensive knowledge of both photography and business was very evident in the advice and stories she was willing to share. to top it all off, she was incredibly kind and gracious. I left my session ready to take on my fears of a creative breakthrough.

Eliesa is the bomb. I came to her as a budding photographer, looking for a mentor that would give me honest feedback. I have come to her with all kinds of questions and she has always given me straight forward and insightful advice. You can ask her anything and she will give you no bullshit and honest feedback, based on her own experiences. What I love and respect the most about eliesa is her genuine investment in those she mentors. I am really thankful for the meetings I have with her once a month, because her advice has been critical to the success of my business. I wouldn't recommend anyone else!

I decided a Consult with Eliesa would be beneficial for my business, since I was stuck in a spot with a small, home based business that I wanted to grow and still keep my current lifestyle. This is perfect because it was one-on-one, face-to-face and a full concentration on where I was, where I am and where I need to go. Since my consultation, I have accomplished more in 4 months than I have in the last 4 years! I also came away with great resources from Eliesa. With the tips, tricks and information she recommended, my workflow has significantly improved. I have become faster and more efficient, which gives me time for what is most important in my life. My clients are also benefitting from a seamless process, making their experience a much more positive one.
