    "I immediately put into effect some of what I learned and photographed one of the most beautiful and fulfilling family sessions I’ve ever done."
    "I loved Jon’s approach to photographing families! I love that he leans into the imperfect and challenges himself to evoke emotion in the most unexpected way. It changed how I view family sessions and has me dying to lean into photographing families more in a less-than-perfect way! I immediately put into effect some of what I learned and photographed one of the most beautiful and fulfilling family sessions I’ve ever done."

    What Students Are Saying

    Logan Lyons
    “This is the only education I've invested in that actually pays off and works!! Plus Charla and Jenn are so hilarious and so easy to learn from!”
    Megan Kay
    “I’ve invested in a lot of education, and a lot of times, content is repeated or watered down because people don’t want to give away their secrets. But Jenn & Charla don’t do that. I’m always learning so much new information from them! They don’t want to hold anything back; they want to engage, and they want to answer all of your questions.”
    Sarah Reeves
    "I actually just found Develope Academy and dove head-first into a few Glowups. I've learned more in the last few weeks than I have over the last 10+ years I've been shooting! I feel like I'm bffs with Charla & Jenn now, even though it's a one-sided relationship, haha! Anyways, thank you for creating real and raw education that I am glad to be a part of, because I know I will get something out of it every single time, along with several laughs!"
