One of my greatest joys is knowing my clients are walking away from their Immerse Workshops experience completely happy. It’s not uncommon for me to shed a tear or two when our official journey comes to an end…. and the beautiful thing is that I’m not the only one who feels this way. Here are testimonials from recent “Immersed Photographers!”
… the real reason for my text is to thank you. The things I have taken away from what you have been teaching us has seriously made such an impact on my business! Applying what you’ve taught me I ran a sign up promo and gathered 111 names of expecting Mommas who love my work that are all due in the coming months!! 111! So amazing! I’ve sent emails out to each due date month and my schedule is filling like never before. You are an Angel! I know this is your career but I also know you have a heart for people. Just know how truly adored and appreciated you are sweet lady!
Immerse Workshops have been a serious game changer for my business. Throughout the 8 week course, I have found my voice, confidence, and set my business on the path to success. The weekly video lessons with accompanying worksheets allowed me to work at my pace, pause when I needed to take notes, and write my own ideas for how to implement the material. After watching the video lessons, the engagement in the FB page has been amazing! The entire group has helped each other along the way, with Cyrissa even giving us buddy assignments to share in engagement and build community. The weekly wrap-up Q&A podcast was the best way to ask questions that were too complex for the FB group and the responses were AMAZING! Cyrissa doesn’t hold back at all and genuinely loved seeing all of our businesses grow in our own way. Thanks to Immerse Workshops, I am now booking more of my ideal clients, charging what I need to contribute to my family, and using Social Media to my advantage rather than being frustrated by all the new changes. I am not joking when I say this is by far the BEST investment made to my business to date.
Cyrissa’s course has taken me from feeling like I was just surviving in my business to feeling like I am proactively pursuing the successful business I have dreamed of. I feel like I am now in charge of the direction and success of my business- not just reacting to what gets thrown my way. She shares her knowledge with passion that is contagious and creates a class environment that leads to an authentic and supportive community- something I am truly thankful for!
I am one of those artsy people that you hear about. You hear about how they “could have” done so well, if only they had know the business end of the art. While I honed, and learned, and perfected my art, my business was floundering from lack of marketing skills and client skills. I think Cyrissa set this course up just for me. The social outlet aspect of it is well worth the money. Since I took this course, my business has literally taken off. All of my fall sessions booked except for one, and this was just the first month of doing the course! It has already paid for itself. If you are just starting out, I suggest you learn the business aspect BEFORE you move on to the art. This is an excellent place to start!
Sparkle School exceeded my expectations and has taken my brand new business so much further than I ever imagined. Cyrissa is an amazing instructor, she is so encouraging and a wealth of information. First she takes you through finding your own voice, then she walks you through the legal steps required to start your photography business, pricing, and growing your fan base, then she’ll help you learn one of the most important, and exciting steps – how to book clients, plus so much more. This class has done wonders for my business. This summer was my first season in business, and applying the knowledge I gained from Sparkle School, I was able to sell out my summer sessions plus my social media following has more than doubled. I’m excited to move forward with my business and to continue the friendships I made within the Sparkle School Community.
I can’t express how awesome of an experience I had. What I loved most about her workshop was how personal it was. She teaches the basics but also helps you achieve your own personal photography goals. I wasn’t new to photography and knew how to use my big girl camera but still felt like I needed some mentoring to hone in my craft. AND she did just that!!! She connected the dots and I had a lot of “aha moments” moments and the quality of my work benefited greatly. I’m so thankful to have worked with Cyrissa and to have had this experience!
I have had my ‘Big Girl’ camera for a while now, but now after taking Cyrissa’s workshop feel like I could never go back to the auto setting! I would never have imagined saying that 10 weeks ago!
Now, after this class, which I was terrified to take, I have the foundation to continue learning and exploring photography without being overwhelmed with unknowns. Cyrissa doesn’t just stand up in front of you and drone on about the potential of how things work; she gets you up and doing it! I just wish there was an Intermediate Course (which I know she is working on). When it comes out, you can be sure I will sign up for that!
Cyrissa runs a FANTASTIC workshop! Be prepared to learn lots and be challenged to push yourself to be the best photographer you can be! She makes it fun, but also makes you put forth the effort to actually get better. Great investment if you want to shoot better photos!
If you get the chance to take one of Cyrissa’s courses… DO IT! Cyrissa is a gifted teacher and her energetic and personal workshops have helped me take my photography to the next level. I have been “taking pictures” for quite a while, but through her workshops, Cyrissa has inspired me to move out of my comfort zone and get serious about applying my new learning. I have already grown as a photographer and can’t thank Cyrissa enough for sharing her joy and enthusiasm with me and those who learn with her!!
I have been privileged enough to take not 1 but 2 photo workshops from Cyrissa! I enjoyed my first one so much, I jumped as soon as I saw she offered another level! She does an excellent job of explaining things & has the ability to teach to all different learning styles! She makes her students feel comfortable from the beginning allowing for optimal learning! Cyrissa is energetic, positive & a genuinely nice person! Moms & Dads out there contemplating taking a course from her, DO IT! You will not be sorry in the investment! She will teach you how to use that big girl/boy camera to the fullest…and then, you’ll be able to take amazing photos of your kids!
