    This class was a game changer for me!

    Posted by Diana Jex on 23rd Jan 2018

    This class truly shifted how I view portrait photography, and I'm never looking back. Danielle's ability to capture raw emotions and those incredible in between moments is truly an inspiration. She details so well in this breakout how to capture those moments that mean the most during a session. Those moments that will become keepsakes and images to cherish forever.
    I have found that after this breakout, my work has become more meaningful not only me, but to my clients as well. Thank you Danielle!

    Worth EVERY penny!

    I saw immediate results in my work after taking this class. Danielle is a wealth of knowledge and she gave so many great tips. I felt like I was in a little bit of a rut, but after taking this class that fire to shoot more and continue to learn is back, full force! Highly recommended to anyone specifically interested in light work!

    Danielle Navratil’s work is so incredibly inspiring. She shares in depth information on her pre-session prep work, shooting a session, and editing all while being concise and to the point, which I greatly appreciate! I know the knowledge I’ve gained taking this will make a huge difference in my work. If your goal is to learn how to photograph natural connections, while capturing beautiful light then I highly recommend this breakout!

    Danielle is so very generous with sharing her knowledge and I saw an immediate difference in my work and sessions! I have a full new workflow to try out with my family sessions and my clients already love the style of sunset photos I have delivered! The next break outs I purchase have big shoes to fill!
