Steph Bolton, the comic-loving creative behind Phoenix Michele Photography based out of Dallas, Texas, captures moments for a living, but her work extends well past the lens. She equips lady bosses with information that helps them build and scale sustainable brands…and she delivers it like only she can!
You know the feeling you get when your work day is over and you can finally unwind, engage in enlightening conversation, and of course, have a margarita to top it all off?
That’s what Steph brings to every speaking engagement (with or without the margarita) – a true happy hour vibe!
But don’t mistake her fun demeanor as an indication that she’s anything less than a badass when it comes to business. Steph’s impressive background as a small biz owner, fashion blogger and influencer coupled with a career as a business analyst has only solidified her acumen for content creation and process improvement. She desires to share her knowledge with other motivated female entrepreneurs looking to increase brand awareness, productivity, and of course, that bottom line!
