Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Limited Capacity seats available

In her candid, revelatory program, Sarah Hill will divulge her ”bag of tricks” for creating riveting, moment-based imagery. In a live demonstration with a real family, she will share the most important elements for getting families to loosen up, get comfortable, and deliver genuine emotion and connection during their photo session. Sarah will talk through natural and effective prompts to use while shooting any subjects and strategies to keep even the most camera-ready clients from phony smiles and overly posed image. And she’ll show you how to prepare for a session from the first e-mail to the last click of your shutter.  

She will discuss how to build brand consistency and how to encourage your own creative voice to shine through your work so that you stand alone in your business and your industry. She will teach you strategies for styling a session using your family as your spring board in a way that suits the family’s story, your subject’s personalities, and your style.  

Sarah will also provide her top tips and tricks for working with available light, as well as the best way to create moving imagery with and without the use of sunlight. She’ll even show you how to make the most of gloomy days, using color and texture and pattern to help aid the mood of your art. 

Come to this photography talk with a notebook ready to learn, and walk away empowered, confident in your ability to empower your clients to give you their moments and share the love they have for their family with you.
