"I LOVED this Masterclass! It was the first one I watched and I was blown away by the amount of information she shared and I especially liked the tips for wreath DIY and her calm approach to photographing newborns. I would highly recommend this course!" - Jennifer W.

"I really liked this class! Nikita was very informative and she showed the fabric over and over again so you could really see how she would stitch images together. I liked that she used a normal Mom for her posing and she showed fabric tossing I hadn't seen anywhere else before. I really appreciated that she stressed the importance of making Mom feel comfortable for her secret tossing technique! I highly recommend this series!"

"This was great; I didn't want it to stop! Great job!" Angie C.
