SENIORS WITH SPANKI

AN ALL DAY INSPIRATIONAL CLASS + PHOTOSHOOT.

GET READY TO FALL IN LOVE WITH YOUR BUSINESS AGAIN.

You might know Spanki from her captivating, emotive imagery. You might know her from her ultra real Instagram stories. We know her as the badass educator helping thousands of photographers becoming better at what they do. This all-day course will leave you fulfilled and ready for your next photoshoot.

Are you ready for an authentic senior brand without the fluff?

YOU KNOW... GetTING seniors who just get you. They have the look. The energy. The wardrobe. The vibe.

Take away the traditional stresses like old-school rep programs, "perfect" make-up and hair, and finally shoot the style you really want.

Skip the boring stuff. No more hours behind the computer, agonizing editing, and mismatched looks.

"The way you spoke about yourself and your business spoke to me in ways I really can't describe. 
You made me remember my WHY. What got me was you talking about taking pictures of your babies tiny fingers with dirt under the fingernails. It was such and ah ha moment for me. That's why I fell in love with photography in the first place.

Not to be too sappy, but you are kind of a total bad ass all across the board!"

-Tracy Shayewitz, Northern California
