Would you like to make significant income while simultaneously eliminating a slow season for your business?
Do you love photographing babies, children and even tweens and teens and want to get more kiddos in front of your camera?
Are you a family, newborn, or senior photographer who really wants to grow a thriving business, one that makes six figures or more?
Are you just starting your business and need to get more clients inquiries in your inbox and more money in the bank?
Are you ready to offer something fresh and fun?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, this class is for you!
You are going to have access to a private page on my website. You will immediately have access to all the materials! You can download all the material and keep it for life.
The course is broken up into four modules. The modules are videos. All the content will also be available via PDF if you prefer to read instead of watch, however there are a few lessons that you will need to watch for maximum benefit and I do reccomend you watch or listen to the videos. They can be downloaded and listened to like a podcast.
You will also get access to all my School Photography templates including emails, model releases, contracts, checklists, and more!
You will have access to a private Facebook group where you can ask quesitons and interact with your peers. This is a self paced class so Elena will not be available regularly to answer questions, however she will do periodic Facebook lives to answer questions that are submitted in the Q & A thread.
