My mentoring session with Andie was everything I could have hoped for. I learned about light, posing, editing, camera settings, and how to interact with clients. She really went above and beyond and taught me so much more than I expected! It downpoured during our session, but she was able to seamlessly work around that and didn't waste a second of my time. She continued to teach me and answer any questions I had even though we couldn't even have our cameras out!

My entire business changed as a result of my mentoring session with Costola Photography. The way I approach each session is different - I have way more confidence and know that I will be proud of the photos I take. I have a much better understanding of how light works, how to pose clients (even when you're drawing a blank and don't know what to do!), and how to cull and edit faster. Attending this session was priceless and I know will not only save me so much time in the future, but gave me the abilities to grow my business into what I dream it can be! Thank you so much to Andie and Tony for once again pulling out all the stops and knocking my socks off!
