Childhood in Motion Workshops

CHILDHOOD IN MOTION: THE WORKSHOPS

Designed for parents looking to capture sincere, casual, and fun shots of their kiddos between formal portrait sessions, our class provides practical tips to boost your photo skills.  Crafted with the beginning "momtog" or "dadtog" in mind, you'll receive 1:1 mentoring that allows you to capture everyday images of your child(ren) for years to come, covering DSLR camera settings, lighting, and our favorite tips for working with small subjects!

 

WE BELIEVE THE SWEETEST MOMENTS ARE UN-POSED

Childhood is messy. And sweet. And fun! But mostly messy...right? Well our photos don't need to be any different.

Our philosophy behind "Childhood in Motion" is that beauty lies in the everyday details: playing in the park. Building Lego towers in the living room. Playing with the family pet. THESE are the moments where life is truly lived.

Our mentoring sessions help you capture the everyday details that show your family (however you define it!) in it's truest form: no posing, no forced smiles, no tears, no stress.
