Elena’s course was a game-changer for me and my business. My school portrait business has already begun to grow, with two schools already booked and thrilled about what they will offer to their families! Elena’s style is direct and encouraging, and the instructions and tutorials are so easy to follow. This comprehensive course is fantastic and I’m grateful for Elena putting her heart into it and into the student community.
