    Photography Business Basics: How To Start Your Photography Business and Go Pro!:

    "I felt like I was sitting at a coffee shop enjoying coffee listening to each of your stories on how you all started. I loved that. I relate to each of you at different times. Made me wish you were local to me so we could sit and have a weekly chat. I found the information quite helpful." - Kristy

    "I often feel uncomfortable adding images of my daughter to my portfolio- since she's not a "client" and it feels fake or not legit. Like it makes me "just" a momtographer. But Sarah made me feel better about that too." - Lissa

Your Oh So Smooth action is better than any of the other big companies I've tried for baby pictures. I've included a picture I just edited this past week with your actions. Thank you for providing excellent products!!" - Frances"done, Done & DONE!! This program is wonderful to use, now that I have it I should be much more organized! Thanks again" - Heather

    Frequently Asked Questions for Photographers:

    "I've been shooting for many years, now, but I can't even tell you how much I learned from this FAQs for Photographers guide. There are questions that I didn't even think of asking before. Not only have I learned a ton, I'm also more inspired to up the ante. I also feel way more confident about the upcoming camera/equipment purchases I'm making!" - Wendy G.

    "Have it! Love it!" - Angie

    How to Price When Starting Out:

    "Wow... I just want to thank you for "How to Price When You're Starting Out." I can't believe how well this described what I have been going through. You hit the nail on the head. I needed someone to tell me that I'm worth a fee. I love the way the guide is worded. It's as if you're sitting across from me, saying "STOP IT!!" I love it & thank you!" - Patti Morgan Crump

    "You should write a book. You are so freakin funny! Not only was I laughing out loud reading your "How to Price When You're Starting Out" Guide, but I couldn't put it down, and kept right on reading to your "You Can Make Me Look Skinny, RIght?" Guide. I thoroughly enjoy your writing and the peak inside your genius photography brain! And the best part is, you're so real! I tend to see great photographers on a pedestal, almost untouchable. But you make becoming a 'professional' photographer seem so within reach, as I am one that suffers with wondering if my work is "pay worthy." I have owned a salon for 8 1/2 years, and found a lot of things that you said to be motivational for that business as well. You ROCK! Thanks for writing your guides and for sharing REAL and USEFUL info for people like me." - Marissa Levy Insolia

    "I just got the pricing guide and started reading it. I am in tears, Thank you. People have been telling me this but I haven't been listening but hearing it from you I finally understand that "I don't work for Free, I work for a fee" I love this quote. Again Thank you so much." - Juana Greaves

    "I just got the "How to Price when you're Starting Out" guide- and HOLY SHIZZ! Its like Brooke is talking directly to me! This guide is so encouraging if you are just starting out! It made me want to cry ( in a good way ). She talks about everything in here... portrait pricing, how to tell clients you are raising prices in email, and how to figure what you should charge.. This is my favorite guide to date!! I've been working on my prices all morning !! You will love this guide!!" - Natalie McKee

    "I purchased the pricing guide and have to say it is exactly what I needed, the direction I need to go and gives me the confidence to actually start charging a fee for my time, passion and work. Thank you !!!" - Kelly L

    "Your pricing guide is AMAZING. read the whole thing in one sitting and made my website with updated prices immediately! Thank you!" - Corinne

    "I just bought the "How to Price When You're Starting Out" guide and I LOVED it! I've seriously been ready to give up this week but I felt so empowered after reading it! Thank you so much!" - Nicky

    "If it wasn’t for you and your guides, I wouldn’t be where I am today. That is the whole truth. I think it was the guide that said, “you have to start somewhere and you have to charge” (not so much in those words). I have followed you and your journey and am a HUGE fan of your work and all you offer when it comes to guides and what not. Thank you for all you do!" - Celeste Tobey

    So I, as well as thousands, am a HUGE fan of yours and have to tell you that I am moving forward with a plan to go 'pro' because of you. Am I scared - HECK YES! But you have helped ease fears by reminding me we are all human, are going to make mistakes, andwhat we do from that point is the difference!" - Tamara H

    "I really like the business guides so far. "How To Price When You're Starting Out" gave me a really good idea of how I should set up my pricing if/when I decide to start making this a profession instead of just a hobby. In general, I like that BP4U focuses on building my business successfully and not just on products for editing - though, I do enjoy those as well." -Desiree

    "I really enjoyed the pricing guide. It helped me decide on how to price my packages." -Christine

    The Beginner's Guide to: Getting Started in Wedding Photography:

    I Love, Love, Love these guides! Brooke is so down to earth, and straight to the point. I have a totally different attitude toward my photography business now, and the day after I read her Wedding Business Collection....I changed all my packages on my website, and booked a wedding that afternoon!" - Patricia

    "From the very first order I downloaded & read from you- I absolutely adored you! My husband got so annoyed because I kept reading off quotes & telling him how much I could get how you talk & describe things & your sense of humor. I have not come across anything that hasn't been wonderfully helpful & beneficial to me or my new business! That means the world to me!" - Jen M.

    "I have bought a TON of your guides and they are incredible. You write from a friend's perspective, not someone teaching or talking down, so it's very easy to understand and absorb. They've been an incredible help and are so inspiring!" - Mollie C

    "I recently purchased your guides for weddings, engagement, newborn, maternity, & senior girls sessions. They are soo soo helpful! and the pose cards that come with them are so valuable to me! At first I was on the fence about purchasing since I figured I could just google and find all the info I needed on posing but there is so much great info that I never would have thought about and now I am so glad I got these! I am completely re-doing the way I do weddings now thanks to your fabulous tips for booking weddings! Not only do you have some great info but its fun to read, I was cracking up the whole time! If anyone is thinking about purchasing these DON"T WAIT! I promise you, you will not regret it!!! Thank you again for your outstanding tips!!" - Bridget

    I finally got around to unzipping all of the downloaded wedding/engagement files and I am totally in awe at how much amazing and excellent information there is. I just love the card guides - will get them printed as photographs and have a little plastic sleeved pocket book made (very professional :). I'm only a amateur photographer, but improving all the time. Up until this morning had absolutely no idea on where to start with making it more of a paying-for-itself hobby. I have a little engaged couple whom I am going to grab ASAP!! Again- thank you for an outstanding product, excellent advice and after-sales service with my previous order." - Sharon Q

    "I've spent the day reading how to sell a wedding today. I love your candor and insight! I see another one I am going to get!" - Holly Dawn

    "Hi Brooke! I just wanted to tell you how much I am enjoying your fun, down to earth style of guides!!! I purchased the wedding bundle and this one and you are making my life as a beginning photographer so much easier! Thanks so much for your great style and super informative guides!" - Laura F

    "Yesterday I purchased the 'complete collection' from BP4U.. WOW.. the service was fast and friendly, and the collection - DOUBLE WOW!! I don't think I will ever need any other engagement/wedding inspiration, well set out, worded just like you were sitting in front of someone having a talk, lots and LOTS of helpful hints and tips. The posing cards dealt with so many different situations, and personality types, amazingly comprehensive. The business guide was just wonderful too, filled in so many gaps in my thought process... I will never look anywhere else for inspiration." - Carol Shearman

    "I also bought your wedding business guide and HOLY CRAP is it amazing. You're a genius...and so freaking adorable. Thank you for sharing your experiences and knowledge with us all." - Erica
