    This is by far one of the best courses I’ve ever taken!

    Posted by Nathalia on 13th Oct 2020

    And I take A LOT of photography classes. Andrea is very through and explains things patiently, do not rush through steps and have everything in video, awesome PDFs and more! Her images are remarkable and she makes sure to teach how to trouble shoot all aspects of a session if needed and how to handle clients and pets properly. I have rescued several pets during my life and she is very specific about each type of pet and supports rescuing animals and ethic animal treatment. I am absolutely in awe with her talent and professionalism and how she transferred all of it into this course!

    Adorable Breakout!

    Posted by Chelsea Wert on 13th Oct 2020

    This breakout is just filled with over the top cuteness! I love how open and honest Andrea is about completely revealing her entire process from coming up with an idea, finding the animals, having the session, and her entire editing process. I feel way more confident shooting an animals session! Thank you!!
