Meet Your


    Chances are you have passed by Suneeta and would never consider her extraordinary. But ordinary life made her special, as familial connections and loyal clients never escape her grasp. As a mother of 3 with an absolute hatred of wearing bows, Suneeta knows how to turn lemons into lemon cakes in her lifestyle family photo shoots.

    Dubbed "Sunny'' by most of her clients, the sun, sand and smile are often what you can anticipate in her imagery. Almost 4 years as a professional photographer, and a mentor to over 500 students, this girl thrives by growing with her community and teaching others to succeed despite their circumstances and focuses on teaching students to understand knowledge rather than just accepting it. Suneeta is sought for her warm embraces and calm composure.

What are Student's Saying?

"I’ve struggled for TWO years with editing! No matter what I’ve tried I could never figure it out! Suneeta has done a wonderful job explaining color and how to make your own preset! I only have gotten through reading the PDF and just the info in it is worth its weight in GOLD!!! BEC has outdone themselves again with another AFFORDABLE course!"

Kashia Courville / BEC Student

"This is by far the most informative and useful course I've taken that REALLY, truly explains color and skin tones. Suneeta does a wonderful job explaining every detail and the WHY behind it all. I just so happened to have an extremely challenging session to edit of a family with multiple different skin tones in a location with bright green grass creating awful color casting. None of my previously purchased presets worked...even after all the tweaks. After reading Suneeta's pdf and watching just one of her editing videos, I was able to edit this entire challenging session using the techniques I learned from her. This course is worth its weight in gold! And (added bonus) Suneeta is phenomenal. She has graciously taken her time to respond to all of my questions and to encourage me as a photographer. That's something special!"

Renee Coleman / BEC Student

"I’m so pleased with the results of this course! So many great tips! I thought I was proficient in Lightroom because I know what each panel does, but this course made me realize I don’t know all the different ways the panels can work together, to get a look I want! So many takeaways. I can’t wait to keep practicing on more past and future photos!"

Mila Kroft / BEC Student

"Just WOW.... Let me start by saying I have been studying Lightroom, presets, and color theory on my own for a while now. While I've picked up information over time, I haven't come across more informative, easy to understand knowledge than Suneeta's Set in Tones course. She shares the best tips for controlling colors in Lightroom with the new adjustment tools and explains color in such a simple way. Talk about lightbulb moment! This course is a STEAL for all the jam-packed info from the PDF to the editing videos to the Facebook group where Suneeta continues sharing! You seriously won't regret purchasing this course!"

Kimberly Hardin / BEC Student

"I loved this course! I learned so much. I never quite understood Kelvin, like I sorta got it, but it didn't click until this course. And keeping skin true, I really loved that part. I've been practicing making my own tweaks to presets with every session since I took this course!"

Pamela Salerno / BEC Student

"This course has been the absolute game changer in my workflow. I always worried I didn’t have the “eye” for tones and thought colors were so overwhelming to learn but this course has been the perfect overview of how they all piece together! Now I can preserve the tones I want to and create the ones I’ve been dreaming of for my style of editing and know the ins and outs of Lightroom panels!"

Cassandra Fontaine / BEC Student

"I can't say enough wonderful things about this course. I was struggling with my skin tones big time but this course helped me tremendously. Suneeta was a great mentor and provided me with the tools to be able to create my own base presets as well as tweak any others. She also provided tips and tricks in LR which were true gamechangers for me. Please purchase the course you will not be disappointed!"
