Nicole 1:1 Mentor Session [April 30]| Brooklyn, NY Photography Mentor

Good evening loves!

Blogging a rare evening post because I’m committed to keeping up with Mentor Monday! So today it will be a late one :)

This evening I’m excited to share with you the recap from my one-on-one session with Nicole back in April! 

We linked up for her session in Brooklyn and had a great day! You can actually check out her awesome recap on her blog right here!

Included in the one-on-one sessions are headshots and a practice session with a model of your choice- single male or female, small family, maternity, or couple- and she chose a single female. Latoya was our model for the day and she couldn’t have been a better fit! She was wonderful and we were able to take some great photos while Nicole practiced her new skills!


How did Nicole feel about her session? Hear from her in her own words!

“What I loved the most about my mentoring session with Danni is that she has simple way of explaining her techniques. I learned several tips and techniques that I can incorporate into my style. Maintaining my own style is extremely important to me. As a photographer you want to grow and learn as much as possible. Being critiqued and having a mentor is part of that process. Sometimes mentors or veteran photogs give critiques that can change your style whether its editing or shooting.

Danni was super patient with me, answered all my questions and gave me pointers as I was shooting. We went over good and bad light, natural reflectors, and posing while we were shooting our model.

I noticed an instant improvement in my work shooting with Danni. I mean it was immediate. My one on one with Danni has done wonders for me. I value the time that I spent with her because she is a wealth of knowledge and information. She was transparent and willing to answer any questions I asked. After our shoot around session, we had lunch and discussed techniques. Danni went over her editing process and we laughed and had fun the entire time.

I enjoyed my day with Danni and was sad when it ended. The time we spent together flew by but it was meaningful and has changed me and my business for the better. If you are on the fence about booking a mentor session with her don’t hesitate it will change your life.”
