Learn how to use light, composition, and play to capture beautiful, authentic images of your child.

* Tuesdays, March 21 – April 28, 2:30 pm – 4:30 pm

When you pick up your camera to photograph your child, there is a lot to think about. From how you choose to compose an image and work with the available light to how you engage with your child, it can feel overwhelming.

In this workshop, we will break down these decisions into manageable pieces, teaching you how to photograph your children in ways that capture their authentic selves beautifully.

In this 5-week course, you will:

  • Learn ways to engage with your children that allow you to capture real emotion; no ‘cheese’ here. The images we create will pull at your heart and beg to be hung on your walls.
  • Understand how to identify and use indoor and outdoor light confidently and creatively.
  • Have a set of compositional tools and tricks ready each time you pull out your camera.
  • Create stronger, more compelling images that will help you hold on to these longest, shortest times.
  • Have the space to ask all the questions. We’re here to support your journey as a photographer.
