Student Success Stories

Pretty Focused Grads' Work Has Been Seen On:

Theresa was a pharmacist. Then she was a stay at home mom. THEN her husband lost his job. And she felt the weight of her family’s financial needs. So, she started a part-time photography business. But she found that she hated the hustle to gain portrait photography clients.

She joined the course in August 2018 and embraced FOOD photography! She has worked with several short- and long-term clients since she began. Now she is able to work part time to cover the expenses of extracurricular activities and summer family trips. Last year she even bought herself a new desk. And this year, a new desktop computer! 

Theresa is now launching her own recipe business and has plans to double her current income.

"I would tell someone considering this course that you really can earn an income with food photography [and] you can work as much or as little as you need ... it really works!"

Rebecca was on the verge of a significant season change in her life. She was ready to say goodbye to her teaching career of 7 years and hello to extra time caring for her new grandson! She needed a job that would allow her to stay home but with an income! The dream, right? 

She and her husband love to travel but she was carrying student load debt that felt like it was always looming. This was no time for income to dissipate. 

Rebecca decided to join Pretty Focused. She had a background in culinary, but zero photography experience. She practiced and practiced and steadily got the hang of her camera. Matched with her culinary skills, it wasn’t long before she passed her portfolio review! In a year’s time the looming student debt will be history!

"I didn’t know anything about how to work a camera! Once I signed up for the class, and started posting, things seemed to happen very quickly. This week, I was able to make a TRIPLE payment to my loan, and hope to get it paid off in a year!”

When Jennifer purchased Pretty Focused, her goal was to take the images for her blog to the next level. Then Covid happened, and her family's business was closed temporarily. It was clear to her that she needed to diversify her income through her photography!

She used the “time off” by ramping up her efforts to create a place of her own to sell recipes. Her husband laughed a little at the thought of her using their “Carona-cation” to work on photos and recipes.

“I’m just starting my journey selling food photography, but I have been amazed. Years ago when I would post things in VA selling groups it would take hours or days to sell my photos, and sometimes they wouldn't even sell. Now I can post a recipe I have created in my store (at a premium price) and watch them sell out. Yesterday was a record when my store sold out in less than 20 minutes from posting the recipes.” 

Her husband isn't laughing now!

"This course has not only paid for itself, but I have been able to upgrade ALL of my camera equipment (and then some) in just a few short weeks."
