One of the biggest struggles photographers have is posing.
You want your families to look relaxed. You want the family photos you take to look "unopposed." You want your families to love their photos. Right!?
We all do.
Most of the posing guides out there are basically a look book. Something you can find on Pinterest.
This is why it took me so long to put a posing guide out there. I wanted to find a way to teach posing that was valuable. I wanted to figure out a way that would teach HOW to pose, not just give ideas.
That is why I developed, Family Posing Made Easy. This class is literally a step by step guide to posing. It breaks over 40 family poses down into steps that you can implement right away.
It is NOT just a visual guide.
My students have been putting out incredible work with their newly learned skills. Each month we do a cover contest and we share our latest family work to inspire and grow together.
I am so darn proud of my students!

Maleah Metz "This course had made me so much more confident when going into sessions (and not just family photography!) I still consider myself a beginner, but I’m so much more comfortable now with interacting with clients and making them feel more relaxed and at ease in front of the camera ✨"

Tiffany Magnuson "This course has helped me to see the natural way of "posing" It's no longer stressful to get shots of families."
Cheryl Minix "I've learned to direct so that I am able to capture connection. This little just learned how to give "lovins". Momma clearly is soaking up the moment, closing her eyes and freezing this moment into her heart for evermore. And Daddy? Daddy is thinking what did I ever do to deserve all this...Thank you Lord!"
Sarah Hailey "I learned to first of all set expectations with my families before we even begin the shoot, especially with dads! Getting these relaxed poses actually takes a lot of coaching. I also learned to slow down and pay attention to the little details. A little change in posing can make a huge difference!"

Kristen Pay "To date, this is one of my favourite family captures. The pure bliss on mom's face. The way dad is whispering in her ear. The kiddos looking on in complete wonder. I love it. <3 The raw emotion of people photography gets me every single time - it is hands down my passion to capture other peoples realness.
This course was one of the best purchases I've made. I love photography, but when I started up my business I was definitely stepping out of my comfort zone. I was terrified to direct people. Being able to rely on ideas and cues that I've learnt has been pivotal in me overcoming these fears. Because I've been able to overcome these fears, my photography skill has greatly improved. Because I've learnt HOW to talk and direct, I can now really focus on getting the images I want."
Rishelle Barber "I am working on focusing on family posing more and moving around a location less. AKA more variety with posing vs. a million different spots in a location. Also, I love when hair blows around in the breeze. This course has made a huge difference in establishing the building blocks of my family sessions. I give the poses names to help me remember them... like "french fries" (everyone standing in a bunched up group), "kid sandwich" (duh), "love line" or "condiments" (holding hands, but spread out a bit), etc."
