Do you ever wonder how photographers seem to capture natural, candid, and connected images so easily?
Do you struggle with families looking stiff and awkward during family sessions?
Are you nervous to pose families because you are afraid it will end up yielding a stiff pose?
Do you show up at your sessions and feel lost because you don't even know where to begin when it comes to family posing?
Have you been avoiding learning how to pose because you don't want your families to look posed, but rather candid and carefree?
Or perhaps you have been at this for years but feel the need to freshen it up and want your images to be more emotive and meaningful?
If you answered yes to any of the above questions, this guide is for you!
I am gong to share with you my step-by-step formula to execute 45 of my favorite go-to family poses! We aren't talking stiff and boring poses, we are talking poses full of life, love, and movement. Everything you are dying to create!
No fluff, just an actual step-by-step guide to connected family posing! It's that easy!

As an instructor, my goal isn't to show my students how to be like me; I want to show my students how to be uniquely them!
I want to offer an online experience that is much like my in-person workshops. One in which you can learn what is behind connected family photography posing.

Wondering why I am qualified to teach you this? I am Elena! I live in Seattle, WA, I love to travel, hike and explore with my family, I'm pretty laid back, and I regularly eat chips and salsa for lunch!
I am passionate about meaningful and connected Lifestyle Family Photography. I have been at this for almost ten years and I photograph over 100 families each year. I am Seattle's most sought after Lifestyle Photographer booking my schedule out a year in advance.
I have taught thousands of photographers through my workshops with Click Photo School, Creativelive, KelbyOne, as well as workshops that I host myself both online and in-person. I have also spoken at multiple conferences across the country about this exact topic. It's kinda my thing. I have a sincere desire to rise up leaders in this community and believe there is more than enough business for all of us!
This class was born from the common misconception that connected family photography simply unfolds naturally. I am a firm believer that the most skilled lifestyle photographers are actually posing and guiding quite a bit and I want to share with you exactly how I do that!
I hope you will join my education community!
Take the guess work out of family posing. Get ready to take your family photos to the next level!
