Learning just got a Glowup.

If you’re anything like us, we were tired of signing up for courses from other educators and not actually learning anything. That’s why we created the Glowup challenges—a deep dive into one topic at a time, allowing you to walk away an expert, ready to make real changes in your life and business. We make photography education FUN, actionable, and interactive—no more fluff and no more hidden secrets—and bring along a community that feels like home.

This is education for real people, with real results, so you can find success faster than we did with the knowledge we’re going to teach you. With a combined 25+ years of experience running multiple successful photography businesses, our purpose is to change the photography industry, one Glowup at a time.


Do you feel intimidated when submitting to publications?

Or maybe getting published feels like a big dream you hope you can *one day* accomplish. Getting published is so exciting! It’s like an invisible trophy, an award that you can’t wait to show off. If only you could get over the anxiety of submitting your work!

Getting published is huge for your business. Beyond feeling like a superhero, a publication directly markets you to your ideal clients, showcases your work to planners and other vendors, adds value and trust to your brand, and helps you build relationships throughout the industry. Needless to say, it’s a big, big deal.

Get ready to learn our best tips and tricks for getting your work published by your dream publications! Learn what editors and publications are looking for, get more of your weddings and shoots published, and learn how to put together a kick-ass submission that can’t be turned away!


"I was featured in three huge publications within a couple of months"

"Thanks to all the education from Develope, not only have I improved as a photographer, but I also finally got the courage to submit my work and feel confident I know exactly what publications are looking for! Since taking the Getting Published Glowup, I was featured in three huge publications within a couple of months! 🎉"

Glowups are mini classes that Develope Academy hosts once a month. We figured, instead of teaching with big, grand gestures and catch-all courses for everything, maybe some topics needed a little more nuance. Consider a Glowup to be your first, second, and third date with whatever topic we are covering. We find that these bite-sized education opportunities help our students to learn more efficiently, more quickly, and with more intention. You can expect each day of education to last 1-2 hours and to have fun while you learn!

Meet Charla + Jenn

Honestly. We were just tired of educators not actually teaching people. So...here we are, and we complement each other well. Our combined 25+ years and variety of expertise and experience gives us a unique approach that can affect change for most people in a very impactful way.

Education shouldn't be boring either. We believe that teleprompters and scripts make for a very distant learning experience. So our laid-back but pointed approach to teaching has been said to be "like hanging out with besties with a glass of wine." We are relatable while maintaining the fact that we are successful businesswomen in our industry.

Join us for Charla's world-renowned, film-shooting as she slams you with facts and rap rhymes while changing your life. Jennefer will be backing her up with her Kindred Preset prowess and inspiring ability to make everyone understand their individual importance.
