About Gaby Chung
Gaby is a mother of two, a portrait business owner, and a photography mentor and business coach. She specializes in newborn, child, and family portraiture, both in her Glendora portrait studio and outdoors. Gaby is also a member of the Professional Photographers of America (PPA) association and has won multiple awards for her work including the Canon Par Excellence award, First Place award in the Children’s Portrait category, and most recently a Gold Medal and Gold Photographer of the Year designation. She also holds a Master’s degree in Child Development with a concentration in teaching adults, and continues to further her education through business and marketing courses.
Gaby has dedicated her spare time to mentoring and coaching other photographers who want to learn to run profitable and sustainable photography businesses. She works with her students to bridge the disconnect between being an artist and being a business owner, and helps them become proficient in their areas of weakness. Gaby also created a unique 6-month mentorship program, where she teaches photographers the ins and outs of her business and In-Person Sales strategy (from initial contact through product pick-up and beyond), and works one-on-one with each student to tailor an individualized plan for success.
“I want to take a moment to give a huge shout out to Ms. Gaby Chung! Her mentorship program has been one of the most beneficial investments for my business. She is super knowledgeable, patient, transparent, and genuine in her desire to see you succeed in this very difficult and seemingly cutthroat industry. Whether you’re just starting out, reconstructing your business from S&B to IPS, or are already using the IPS model but want to increase your sales average, finding a business mentor is the way to go!
Personally, I was working way too many hours for very little money, but when I switched to the high level of service / low volume / high profits model that Gaby guides you through I feel like I’m not drowning anymore. My clients trust me as an expert in my field and that alone is incredibly valuable to them. I am just so grateful for all of the knowledge I’ve gained over the last several months.
People are yearning for our service, our guidance, our expertise and will gladly invest top dollar for all of that awesomeness. We just have to learn how to give them what they’re looking for, produce beautiful portraits, price profitably, and reach our target clients; who are not always rich, btw. I learned the hard way that it will be difficult to convince people to invest in you if you don’t first invest in yourself.”

“From our very first meeting, I knew that my investment with Gaby was worth every penny! I walked away with so much valuable information to process and apply to my studio, than I had time to execute in the first month. She does not hold anything back. And in her sweetest way gently, but precisely, delivers CC on every aspect of my business, following up with solid advice. I am excited to do the work and thrilled to see myself succeed in the near future.”
