This course will have two options:
Immerse Yourself, or Follow Along.

If you choose to dive in, you'll participate in a month of weekly group live video chats and image critiques, along with a highly interactive private Facebook group for course participants, where you'll be able to ask questions and submit images and interact with fellow participants. There will be a limited number of seats to Immerse Yourself.

If you'd rather just watch, you'll be able to see the replays of the live videos, and access all of the information in the online modules.

All participants will have lifetime access to the modules and videos, so you can go back and revisit at your own pace. Daily prompts and questions in the Facebook group will be given February 1-28, 2021.

Say goodbye to posing and say hello to trusting your inner wisdom to direct with prompts into authentic interaction.

We will cover where I look for inspiration for these beautiful, emotive and authentic moments, how I storytell during my sessions to engage my clients, the prompts I actually use which work and how to capture the story unfolding as they simply move through the process and how I allow my clients the space for being themselves to capture genuine moments of expression.

We'll also start the process of journaling to gain clarity on what our authentic vision is, and where we want ourselves and our work to go.

You Better Work


Prompting your clients into emotive scenarios doesn’t necessitate barking out a stream of directives before each new pose or pairing.
Often, setting the groundwork properly, and putting clients in the right frame of mind before a session, is much more effective at creating a stream of special interactions.

We’ll dig into preparing clients, but even more, preparing yourself - coming at a session in the right mindset, with the right mental tools ready.

We’ll help you overcome your hesitation to direct your clients, and teach you how to create beautiful stories in each session. You’ll finish feeling confident that you can create magic and capture emotion anytime, anywhere. 

How about some Guiding Principles


This is a course about posing! Why are we talking about client wardrobe and communication?

A crucial aspect of feeling free to guide families with emotive prompts and remaining as in the moment as possible to capture those small moments is to prepare before the session.

The time and thought you put into preparing your clients (and yourself), will ensure you are able to create the magical, timeless images you dream of.

Curating the Experience


Effortless and authentic posing does NOT mean going in without a plan. You’ll still want to think about all of the possible pairings and prompts to ensure that each relationship has a moment of focus where you can be intentional behind your lens, capturing the authentic engagement of the pair.

We’ll discuss prompts for various groupings and children of all ages, to help you connect with the emotions you wish to capture, and to ensure everyone is at ease and in the moment.

Being acutely aware of the connections we have with each other will help you to guide your clients into situations where these connections are allowed to unfold organically.

We’ll discuss different types of connections, and how recognizing and creating situations to allow them to happen will help you capture those magical moments that everyone wants to remember. 

Making the Magic


Walk with me through my thought process, as I talk through and show you several different scenarios. You’ll see how I interact with clients, how I direct some of them and others I just let do their own thing (within the scenario I’ve carefully crafted to elicit opportunities for connection and emotion).

If you want a highly-interactive, structured experience, you’ll want to IMMERSE YOURSELF. Starting on February 1, we’ll have a month packed with daily interaction to help you through the course - weekly group Zoom calls, Facebook Lives in our private group, shooting exercises and critiques, plus tons of pre-recorded video and written exercises to go through in our online teaching platform. We’ll be varying the times and dates for the live interactions, to hopefully catch everyone, and they’ll be uploaded soon after airing, so you can re-watch or catch the replay if you can’t attend live. 

Both experiences allow you lifetime access to the course content and uploaded videos.

For those who aren't sure they have the time to invest right now, but still want to see everything, you can FOLLOW ALONG - you'll have access to all of the course materials and videos, and can watch replays of the live group discussions and critiques, but won't be directly participating. You’ll have access to all of the same amazing content in the course, just with less interaction and no set schedule.

You will have access to all course materials, as well the following (depending on the tier you select):
