What is the key to building a six-figure portrait business?
You create the kind of luxury experience that has your clients shouting your name from the rooftops. Oh yeah, and you make stunning photographs of them, too.
Jai Mayhew is an award-winning portrait and fashion photographer who built a luxury, six-figure portrait business from the ground up by giving her clients a one-of-a-kind experience. In fact, she treats them so well they become walking marketing machines who are so happy with the service and experience that they can’t wait to tell their friends and family. How do you create this experience?
From consultations and welcome packets to selling portraits and client interviews, Jai lays the process out so you can take what she’s learned and apply it to your own approach. You’ll see every aspect of her business and learn how things like customer service and creating a memorable experience are central to a successful luxury portrait business.
Hi There! 👋🏼,
Welcome! I’m so excited you’re here. My name is Jai Mayhew, I’m a portrait & fashion photographer, and I cannot wait to teach you the art and the business of Luxe Portraiture and my approach to empowering women.
I cater to a unique clientele of women - everyday, real, beautiful women - who come to me looking for a shoot experience like no other. They’re looking to be pampered, validated, empowered. I’ve put a workflow in place to make sure that every client who walks through my doors is treated like a queen and photographed like a model, and I’m going to show you every step of my process in a VERY detailed tutorial that I've been planning and writing with PRO EDU for months!
We’ll start by talking marketing (how to attract those dream clients), where to source high end products and how to structure your pricing menus to boost your sales. I’ll walk you through the pre-shoot process I’ve created for my clients to ensure a surprise free and enjoyable shoot (for them and for you). More importantly we are going to focus and tackle the customer experience and how I was able to build my six figure business through in person sales.
Of course I’m going to take you behind the scenes into full photoshoots designed by PRO EDU. But you’re not just going to watch my lighting or see how I shoot. This is going to be different than the rest of the shoots or tutorials for women's portraiture.
I’m going to teach you HOW and WHY I light, pose, and angle the way I do to create an editorial feel in my work. This is a big part of empowering women and building confidence, no matter what. This isn’t just another lighting course, this is a class on retraining your eye, elevating your work, revamping your business and attracting your dream clients. This is a course about empowering YOU. I can’t wait to get started!
I Can't Wait To Welcome You To My Studio

Many of our students see a benefit or a payoff in their first shoot. This could be in the form of an increase in a day rate, booking more days, a higher sales price for their prints, or a higher quality of work. Success comes in many forms and is measured differently. You have to ask yourself, how much does it cost you NOT to have access to information that will make your life easier and more profitable? When you set out to learn something new every day and keep an open mind about learning from others, your pathway to success becomes a highway to happiness.
No one is too busy for bite-sized learning! We realize that learning takes time, so we encourage our users to download the mobile app and make a playlist for on-the-go opportunities. We also encourage our users to schedule a time for deep learning without any distractions and take notes to ensure that they are genuinely absorbing the content.
You can learn anything on YouTube; we love it as well! The biggest question you need to ask is whether you want to do all of the searching it takes to find ENOUGH quality content you need. How valuable is your time, and how much do you want to waste? On top of this, how much do you like the platform? Can you download YouTube content and watch it offline? Does it come with downloads? Do you want to sit through all of the noise and distractions of YouTube? Do you have access to ask questions? YouTube is designed to sell ads, whereas PRO EDU is designed to unlock the secrets of success. We aren't paid by camera companies trying to sell you cameras and new shiny things. We make education to help others grow and advance in their career genuinely.
