Family photography is so rewarding but can be challenging! Nobody wants stiff and stressful family portraits and as a photographer, you can set the tone and have plans to engage with a variety of families to capture their relationships. Light and love is where it's at!
In this class we will:
talk about solutions to challenges with family photography including: working with different ages, making photos fun and engaging, being flexible and making connections, what to do when things go sideways.
we'll shoot 3 different family mini sessions with varying ages and dynamics.
I'll share how I think through and approach a session from beginning to end. A game plan helps a ton and there's a reason why I shoot in the pattern that I do.

Kind words from two photographers who attended the last class:
The family photography class really helped me grow, not only with my clients but also with engaging my own kids. I learned the importance of making a personal connection, while at the same time guiding groups into natural poses. It was so helpful to watch Cassandra interact with the families and she showed us some fun sayings, games, questions and tricks that helped to produce natural smiles from the whole group! I highly recommend this class if you are interested in taking your family sessions to the next level.-Michalina
I really appreciated learning about how vital it is to engage with the family and she gave us ideas of key questions that will bring about authentic reactions and smiles. I learned it’s more powerful to capture the story of who the family is rather than how everyone is sitting perfectly posed, hands folded in their laps with the children squealing “CHEESE”. I used a couple of her techniques the last time I had a family photo session and had, in my opinion, great success!-Janna
