Storytelling: The Lifestyle Approach to a Family Session (Chloe Ramirez) FILLING
Limited Capacity filling up

What if we photographed families the way we looked at our own lives? What if we took the time to get to know our subjects, REALLY get to know them, before putting them in arbitrary poses? What makes your subjects' hearts soar? What's their favorite thing to do as a family? What happens when we strip away everything that doesn't apply, would we be left with what really matters? Would we be left with images your subject can truly connect with and that you're proud to have in your portfolio?

In this class I will break down exactly how I approach a storytelling family session. From the very first email, to how I photograph and interact with my subjects during the shoot, to the final product. Attendees will be able to watch how I navigate a lifestyle family session and have the opportunity to photograph the family as well. This class will take place in a home-like suite at the hotel.

This indoor boutique program will take place in a home-like hotel suite for a lifestyle shooting experience.

-presenting my direction for the session to my subjects

Part 2. Photographing a storytelling session
-how I communicate with my adult subjects during a shoot to foster an environment for them to be their authentic selves
