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.


This is the one where you want to be a poser.

Do you ever find yourself going blank or getting stuck mid-session on what poses to do next? It’s like walking onto a lit-up stage in front of a full house and you don’t know any of your lines. Whew, we’ve all been there. But you don’t ever have to feel that way again after the Posing Glowup!

We will teach you what makes poses feel right in the moment, and what movements get a ton of variety in a short period of time. And we will show you what flow posing is and how you can use it to never get stuck again. You’re going to rock every session!

You can be your own hero with flow posing!



"So, I was given 10 minutes with the bride and groom for yesterday's wedding, and I put everything we learned into practice! FLOW POSING FOR THE WIN! I was able to get so many shots in such a short time. The verbiage y'all used helped me so much to allow them to fall into place to what was natural to THEM, and then the confidence to make the adjustments where needed. Loved this challenge, y'all!!

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.
