"I've just finished The Develope Course and absolutely loved it. Even if you've been shooting for awhile like I have, I really took some great tips & tricks out of it, and it reconfirmed some things I needed to brush up on. I can't wait to try some of the Glowups next, and that's exactly what I'm going to do now! Thanks again, Charla & Jenn—I can't wait to dive into more!"
