One thing I learned early on as a mom: having professional pictures taken of my kids is a terrible form of torture.
The first time I took my baby daughter in for professional photos, it took 4 hours (no lie): the photographer was running late, and then took F-O-R-E-V-E-R to take a few pictures, in between which she had to keep answering the phone. Not only was my baby fussy and tired, but my husband and I were frazzled, and we vowed to never return to a photo studio ever again.
It was then I decided that I really needed to learn how to take better pictures of my kids.
If you’ve ever had an experience similar to this, you might want to learn How To Take Professional Family Portraits with Craftsy for FREE (affiliate link).
The class is taught by Kirk Tuck, a professional photographer who not only has written several books on photography, but also teaches photography online and in person, so he knows what he’s talking about.
When you sign up, you’ll get 4 videos teaching you how to set up your own “studio,” how to get the lighting set-up just right, how to pose your subjects, and learn a few tips to process your pictures in a program like Photoshop.
How great will it be to take Pinterest-worthy pictures of your kids yourself, without all the time and hassle of going to a studio or shelling out lots of money? It’s a win-win! 🙂
