I added family photography business coach to my resume, having worked in the photography industry for 10+ years, learning too many things the hard way. I allowed my business to run me into the ground.
I ALMOST QUIT.
On the other side of business stress is freedom, and I know I can help others get there.
I'm here to help you
(learn from my mistakes).
less stress journey
took way too long
I lost loved ones and twin boys, had another daughter, overbooked myself, and worked truly insane hours - a perfect storm. I missed out on too much in the early years with my girls and my husband started a demanding new job. I mismanaged the business at every turn and I took the business stress out on the people I love most.
After countless requests, from photographers at every level, for advice or to chat over coffee, I built a coaching platform to efficiently help MORE family photographers!
I started Melissa Lucci Photography as my corporate maternity leave clock ran out.
I fumbled my way through learning how to be a small business owner while learning how to be a mama.
I committed to a less stress, streamlined, efficient process and haven't looked back. That didn't happen overnight, but I invested time and money into learning how to get it right. My clients are happier, I'm enjoying a healthier work-life balance, and I have room to GROW!

HOW MUCH WORK DOES 1:1 COACHING TAKE?
(I'M ALREADY SO BUSY.)
I refuse to sugarcoat things -
Getting your process nailed down is work. You won't magically be in a better place overnight. You have to put in the work to get there. At times, I'll push your to step outside your comfort zones, but only because I know what lies on the other side!
With your ten-week commitment, give yourself two weeks to nail down each process at your own pace!
Spoiler alert - CRM setup/cleanup is the most time-consuming. #worthit
when will I see results?
(I NEED less stress, yesterday.)
Well, that depends on you -
Results come as soon as you implement and familiarize yourself with a more streamlined, efficient process. Nailing everything down to fit your unique work-life needs will almost instantly relieve you from the bulk of the stress that comes from trying to manage it all without a solid foundation.
Your results directly reflect the change you are willing to make and the work you are willing to put in. I cannot guarantee results, but my gosh, I will do everything I can to show you the way!
DO I really need a coach?
(Consider me on the fence.)
I can't answer that for you -
Are you a person who can self-motivate and troubleshoot issues in your process without support, guidance, examples, or a sounding board? If so, then give meaningful change a try and re-evaluate!
Are you someone who needs accountability checks, that thrives when you have someone in your corner, showing you the way? If so, I can be that for you.
Applications take 5-10 minutes to complete, and are risk free. Tell me more about your goals and pain points. I'll let you know If I believe I can help!
I'm for you, if
You're over being stressed.
You're sick of guessing your way through your process.
You're ready to put in the work.
