The Wedding Workshop
Be prepared to be rejuvenated and inspired! Our morning will include many visuals and hands-on learning tools as we share techniques on how to be successful in your business. You’ll be shown ways we’ve found success (and had failures) in finding our target client. After lunch (which will be yummy and is included!), we’ll demonstrate how to speed up your culling and editing workflow, and create a beautiful product and package to delivery to your client.
Later in the afternoon, we’ll head over to a beautiful Stylized Shoot, complete with gorgeous setups and spectacular models to work with directly!! We will be demonstrating various poses, compositions, and frames to push your creativity to new heights and help your build your portfolio. Details galore will round out this beautiful scene that we’ll photograph until dusk.

Want to take your creativity to new heights? Our shootouts will give you an opportunity to photograph a beautiful set-up. This is a fully stylized Shootout, meaning that we’ve gone to great lengths to create a spectacular scene with which to work in. We have lined up fabulous models for you to work with directly. And perhaps best of all, we’ll be demonstrating various poses, compositions, and frames to push your creativity to new heights.
Details galore will round out this gorgeous scene that we will shoot until dusk!

The Family Workshop
We will begin our day with interactive learning about how you can be successful in your children and family photography business. Much will be shared in ways to help your target client find you, including leveraging social media platforms, styling for your brand, and usage of both simple and complex props. While we have lunch (which is included *and* delicious), we’ll talk about gear choices to help make your portraits easier and successful.
Later in the afternoon, we’ll meet our model families on location and begin by showing how we can create a calm environment for parents and one where kids feel safe to be themselves. We will be working through various authentic poses, interactive compositions, and intelligent frames that you can fold into your existing brand. You’ll see how we create layered setups with props and are able to shoot variety from a single pose. Every participant will have a chance to work with our families directly, though we’ll do so in a way that our younger models feel safe 🙂
The Newborn Workshop
Newborns are just the most wonderful subjects to photograph – and perhaps the most challenging! Join us as we share how we work with parents and newborns, from the moment of the inquiry, to the booking of the package, to the session itself, and finally the delivery of the edited product.
We will begin our day with interactive learning about how you can be successful in your newborn photography business. You’ll be shown how to identify and find your target client. Before our included (and sure-to-be delicious) lunch, we’ll cover important topics such as newborn safety, prop design, soothing techniques, gear selection, and studio setup.
Later in the afternoon, we’ll meet our model babies and begin demonstrating both how we create a comfortable environment for parents and a safe setup for baby. We will be working through various authentic poses (non-beanbag), organic compositions, and flattering frames that you can utilize for your brand. Some modeling may occur in the studio, though we’ll strive to do some (or, weather permitting, all) of the shooting outdoors. You’ll observe as we create layered setups and see how we obtain variety from a single pose. You’ll have your turn as well to photograph baby as we guide you to get the most ideal portrait!
After our models head home, we’ll wrap up the day sharing how we cull, edit, and create a beautiful product and package for the client.
