Module 1

Lighting and Location


Do you find that your images are inconsistent and you are unsure of where you should be shooting when you’re at a session?

In this module, we will take you through one of the most important pieces of the puzzle to bright, sharp, and consistent images. We will start off right away changing the way you look at light and begin getting you the results you want. 

This module will teach you what you need to know about the extreme importance of both lighting and location. We will touch on pieces of the absolute best places to shoot and some of the worst places to shoot. We discuss the best time of day to shoot and talk you through what we do toward the end of our sunset photoshoots to get the backlighting everyone loves.

We will go through what we do on all sorts of days, from overcast to sunny to anything in between. We will also discuss what to do when you are simply stuck in the worst lighting and location scenarios possible.

We will give you simple strategies to pick out the best light in order to help make the rest of the photography process time efficient and easy, leaving your creativity to go wild. 

We will discuss ways to make the most out of both artificial and natural reflectors and provide you with behind the scenes bonus lessons to show you what all of this looks like in action.

Module Highlight: 

  • Good vs. Bad Light: These lessons are filled with gold when it comes to how to find the most beautiful light. We teach you what light to look for and what light and backgrounds to avoid.

Module 2

Mastering Manual Mode


Are you shooting in automatic mode? Have you tried shooting in manual mode and found yourself going right back to automatic mode or maybe a different mode when you begin to feel overwhelmed at a session? 

In this module you will learn what every photographer needs to know to be in control of their images. You will begin by learning the importance of the exposure triangle. You will then be taken further into each part of the exposure triangle as we do everything we can to make it simple and easy to understand. You will be given examples and scenarios that we see ourselves in and can picture all of you in as well. You will learn the EXACT settings we use in different scenarios to help get you ready for your next photoshoot. 

You’ll then be educated on how to bring all of these pieces together to get the sharp, bright and consistent photos you are looking to achieve. You’ll learn the process we use at every photoshoot and how we adjust our aperture, iso, and shutter speed and make them work together, seamlessly. 

To add to the three pieces of the exposure triangle, you’ll learn about one of our tips to nailing white balance prior to bringing your images to your computer. This will help you speed up the editing process and who doesn’t want that!? Learning about white balance is going to leave you confident in showing off the back of your camera to your clients!

You’ll also get an added bonus on our go-to lens recommendations for a variety of photoshoots and scenarios you may just find yourself in. You’ll find out it doesn’t take a lot of fancy equipment to get the images you have been dying to get.

Module Highlights:

  • Explore and learn the three parts of manual mode. We make this very simple and easy to understand and will help you begin feeling confident using your camera to shoot in manual mode at sessions. 
  • We walk you through scenarios and how we put it all together. This is where you will learn what to do when you are struggling with manual mode settings and cannot figure out what adjustments to make. You’ll be given a lot of scenarios and time to practice, leaving you feeling very confident. We let you in on a secret when it comes to meshing the three pieces together that we know is key to keeping it simple at a photoshoot. 
  • Learn what white balance is and how to master it in camera. We love to set you up for getting everything right in camera so the editing process is as quick and smooth as possible! We dive into how we master white balance to get those beautiful skin tones and what we use to do this that has saved us hours of editing!
Module 3

Do you look at your camera and wonder what all of the buttons and settings really do and if they matter? We have been there. You are in for a treat with this module!

In this module we will do everything but overwhelm you. You’re going to learn the absolute must have settings and have them ready to go on your DSLR or Mirrorless camera, why you want these settings, and what they mean. These are settings you might not even know existed on your camera and that have really helped us achieve the images we love.  You will learn our extremely simplified process of how we make our cameras work to do the job without having to change settings too often.

  • Discover all that your camera has to offer. You are going to learn things that you didn't know existed on your camera. The hope is that we will guide you to choose the best settings that suit the needs for your photography. 
  • Simplicity is key. We strive to avoid changing settings too often on our cameras during a session so that we can focus on what is important, the clients. We will walk you through tons of settings that we set once and don’t touch again! 
  • Camera Setup essentials: We will discuss metering modes, release modes, AF modes, and so much more. You will walk away knowing what in the world all of the buttons and settings do on your camera without being confused and overwhelmed!

Do you struggle with workflow when it comes to getting your images off of your camera and organizing them on your computer and in Lightroom? Maybe you just wing and hope for the best? 

We have been there and have clogged up our computers like crazy not knowing what we were doing. This module is designed to show you our step-by-step workflow and how we save files, cull our photos, import them into editing software, and so much more!

We are going to teach you tips on how to efficiently edit your images. We will take you through exactly how we edit each image from the white balance to exposure to touch ups (and much more). We will help you achieve bright and beautiful images like you’ve always wanted. 

This module gives you so much information that will simplify your editing process and make it as quick as possible! You’ll have several examples and see us edit in action! 


  • Limiting the amount of time in Lightroom is key. Like we said before, we want to get images as close to perfect as possible before we bring them into Lightroom.  You are going to learn how to efficiently edit your images once you’ve already achieved beautiful in-camera images. 
  • Discover new tips and tricks you have been missing in Lightroom that will speed up your editing process. These are tricks we never knew of right away when we first started and oh, how they save us so much time!
