Welcome to The Art of Lifestyle Photography!

This class is broken up into four written modules. There are three behind the scenes videos in the bonus modules that show a newborn shoot, family shoot and how I work with a large family.

How to get the most from this class…

This class has a lot of information! I recommend that you take it one module at a time, one week at a time. It works best if you work through the material over a consistent four week period, one module each week. If you can’t do that, it’s okay, don’t beat yourself up. I just want you to take the time you need to absorb all of the information.

I highly encourage you to complete the assignments and ask for peer critiques in the FB group. There are four threads, one to submit the assignment for each module. While I can’t go in and critique all the assignments, your peers are a great sounding board and a great place to get valuable feedback for maximum growth.

Remember, you get what you put in. I can’t make you do the work. Read the material, practice as often as you can ( I recommend daily shooting when you are working through this workshop,) and be an active contributor in the FB group. We are all in this together!
