The Complete Guide to Creating Natural-Looking Lifestyle Family Portraits
with Elena S. Blair
Join Elena S. Blair as she takes you through her shooting workflow while working with a family on location. Meaningful family lifestyle photography is in high demand. Creating photographs based on how you feel is more important than technical skill alone. Elena’s workflow is efficient and effective but what drives her is the opportunity to create timeless family heirlooms for her clients. In this class, Elena shares her process for getting clients ready, scheduling a shoot, selecting the gear she uses, working with her clients on a shoot, and selecting the final images that make up the gallery that is shared with the client. When approached through your creativity, family photography has the potential to be both profitable and fulfilling as an artist. BUY COURSE
