what they're saying

"Before Brenna's course, I was strictly a natural light photographer. The idea of using a flash totally scared me! This course simplified how to use a speedlite and now I know exactly how to achieve my desired result. Bonus: this course was so quick and easy to follow!  In one afternoon, I was able to practice and implement her strategies for my next lifestyle session. Being able to toss my flash in my bag and have it in case of cloudy days or homes with less natural light has been a game changer!"       --Jynelle Hatch

what they're saying

"I've struggled with using a flash forever. After multiple "Masterclasses," this course finally created that light bulb moment for me! Having this knowledge has helped to create consistency for my clients. Plus, I don't have to haul a massive lighting system anymore!"          --Christine Pudel

As a natural-light photographer, I didn't like the idea of having to reschedule my in-home lifestyle sessions just because it was a cloudy day. I also wanted to be able to serve my clients well even if their homes were darker than ideal. Unfortunately, I couldn't find the simple, no-nonsense flash education I was looking for. 

I knew I wanted a flash system that was compact enough to fit in my camera bag. I didn't want a huge setup when traveling to my clients' homes. Lastly, as a portrait photographer, I knew I didn't need a huge course on all types of flash methods for weddings and events.

That's why I created this mini-course and now, I want nothing more than to share these easy flash methods with you! My students have made incredible progress and have been blown away by how simple these skills are to implement. 

I look forward to teaching you inside the Lifestyle Flash Mini-Course!

I've been there!
