I’m Elena, an island girl, mama of three, who took a dream and turned it into a million-dollar business.

I'm passionate about helping other creative entrepreneurs take their business full-time. Working for myself doing something I'm passionate about has given me the financial freedom to work from anywhere in the world doing what I love and I love passing on my knowledge to those ready to learn.

But it wasn't always like that for me. When I first started my photography business, I had no idea what I had to do to book clients who loved the work I was creating, let alone those ready to pay me for it! When I finally discovered to key to creating work I loved, and started to attracting clients who valued my vision and time my business quickly took off and made it possible for me to do what I loved full-time.

And I'm so excited to offer this online class where I'll go over my process of creating sessions and attracting ideal clients so you can do the same!

Here's what I'll be covering

This class is designed for photographers who want to learn my process in styling, directing and booking more ideal dream clients and are ready to take control of their session and business growth.

  • Create work you absolutely love, and attract ideal clients who hire you because you're the only one they want to work with and in turn charge according to what you need to make to take your business full time rather than offering discounts to get clients to book.

  • Style sessions that line up with your personal vision, as well as help your clients make the right decisions on what to wear and how to show up to your sessions, so they end up exactly like you both hoped.

  • Understand how to naturally direct clients to evoke beautiful emotions. You'll even understand the science behind WHY directing clients this new way works and why in the past you struggled to create that connection between clients.

  • You'll see the entire process and experience it first hand so you'll know exactly how to it for future sessions. Since you and I will go through the process of putting out a casting call, styling a session, choosing your client, directing your clients and shooting a complete session that is 100% lined up with your vision within the class, you'll easily be able to shoot more sessions and book more clients following these same steps.

  • Most importantly, you'll finally be able to go into each session with confidence because we have gone through the entire process together.


Each step in this course is designated for something specific, and together, you'll know exactly what to do. By the time the week is complete, you'll be on your way to creating real sessions, and attracting ideal clients!

My goal is always to go above and beyond for those who take my classes. If you don't feel like I went above and beyond for you in my course, then all you need to do is shoot me an email, and I'll make it right. All I ask for those who take the class is to give it a real shot. To take the class, put it to use and see just how well it will work for you. I'm confident that following my method will guarantee booking more clients. If for whatever reason you feel I didn't deliver and go above and beyond, then I'll stand by my word and give you a full refund within the first 10 days of taking the class.

“Just got home from my shoot! IT WAS SO MUCH FUN!!! I’d never felt so confident and at ease during a photoshoot! We laughed and had fun! It’s as if we were all just hanging out and laughing! Thank you so much Elena!”


“I shot last night and can’t wait to get through them and edit! I’ve done a quick edit on some and love them, but I can’t wait to go through them so thoroughly. The idea of “creating your own vision” really allowed my creative juices to get flowing and remember my passion for this amazing thing we get to do!”


“I had the most amazing session. I always shoot outdoors and had to challenge myself to do an indoor session. I love all white and going for a very clean look. For the most part, I let the kids just do what they wanted, using very little prompts. THANK YOU Elena, SO grateful for all you time and encouragement here!!!”


“I shot my family session yesterday and it was so much fun, the property was beautiful and the kids were so darn perfect.”


What is preventing you from taking your business full time?

You and I probably have a lot in common

Maybe you started your photography journey as a hobby, maybe you fell in love with it when you became a parent yourself, or maybe you simply knew that this is what you wanted to do with your life.

Regardless, you've probably noticed how difficult it can be to take your business full-time and book enough clients each month so that you're family can financially depend on as a source of income. You're clearly in this because this is what you're passionate about, and are ready to start filling your calendar with clients who value your time and vision. And here's the thing;

It's 100% possible! I myself fell in love with photography when I became a mother myself in 2008, and started my business officially in 2012, and just one year later, my husband was able to quit his job and pursue the things that he was passionate about too. 7+ years later, and we're both doing what we love full-time and I couldn't imagine not helping others do the same.

And the big truth is that you're capable of doing this too. It simply comes down to taking steps in the right direction, and that's exactly what I'll show you.


With each business, I valued my vision and time and connected with clients and customer that I knew would benefit from what I had to offer. It's not that I got lucky, or had a degree in business. I simply knew how to put my ideas on paper, bring them to life, and create a connection with ideal clients. And same goes for you; you don't need to have it all figured out, you just need to take the steps in the right direction and start treating your business like the one you dream of having.


  • How is the class presented?

    The entire class is in video format and slides. The post-processing portion of the class I'll be sharing my screen so you can get a front row seat and see precisely what I am doing.

  • Will I be able to re-watch the video?

    Absolutely! Once you're signed up for the class, you'll have access to the video forever and can re-watch it as many times as you'd like.

  • You have a 100% money back guarantee; how does that work?

    If you feel like I didn't deliver and go above and beyond with the course, then simply email me personally at elena@modernmarket.co and let me know so I can make it right.

  • How many posing prompts come with the class?

    You'll be getting 75 of my absolute favorite, and proven posing prompts to use at your sessions. These are my go-to prompts to evoke real emotion and get clients comfortable.

  • How can I get the most out of this class?

    I put this class together as a way to share what has worked so incredibly well for me, and give you the blueprint to follow. My hope for you is that you take these lessons, learn, and apply them to your business. I think you'll be happily surprised just how much of a difference it makes to become hands on with the process and really put yourself out there.
