Christmas Mini Session Templates

Snowflakes and sleigh bells seem to be in the air at LRI… or at least a little Christmas music! Last week we released our all new Holliday Card Template bundle – which we decided to make free! And today we have just added our newest Holiday Mini Session Campaign Kit. I think this has to […]

You build a great business and then you think ‘all right I did it, time to enjoy it.’ And while I’m a huge proponent of celebrating our success and living the life we imagine, I also know that you can’t actually sit still for too long or all of a sudden you’re going backwards. You […]

PhotoBooth Supply Co. Review

I love photographing best friends! It’s so much fun and one of my favorite little tricks when it comes to booking Seniors. They can split the session fee and have their Senior Sessions together. These beautiful girls were of course part of the Model Crew for my workshop, The Thriver’s Retreat in Washington, D.C. but […]

The Thriver’s Retreat – Urban Seniors

It’s not that building a senior model rep program is so hard…it’s more that there are a ton of rookie mistakes that are made (so don’t beat yourself up if you’ve made a few!). Both Leslie, the creator of Seniorologie and I will admit to making a lot of them in today’s episode. We will […]

How to Build a Senior Model Rep Program

I was in the middle of the Washington, D.C. Thriver’s Retreat talking all about marketing; we were laughing, brainstorming and my phone lit up below me…I glanced down and said, “Oh no, oh no, oh no.”  Our Friday night Senior models had just bailed on us and I was worried. I told the girls what […]

The Thriver’s Retreat – Senior Masquerade Styled Session

I love getting to see how other photographers work.  It’s so inspiring to see how someone else “sees their shot”.  We can all be working at the same location, with the same model and yet our visions and styles can be completely different! It is what makes each of us unique, which I love and […]

The Thriver’s Retreat – the Love session

I am so dang excited today! I’m finally releasing SNAP HAPPY into the Go4Pro Shop! I say f-i-n-a-l-l-y because I’ve been teaching Snap Happy for 3 years now.  I’ve had so much fun offering this class, that I knew I had to make it available for you too! And today it’s actually happening…   Okay… So […]

SNAP HAPPY – Photography 101 Class Material

I specialize in children, families and seniors – but even within that niche, I seem to have a special focus on kiddos 5 and under.  Perhaps it’s that whole, ‘you attract what you show’ concept.  All I know is that 75% of the kids I photograph are under the age of 5.  But that’s great […]

5 Tricks for Photographing Young Kids

I’m starting to look into upgrading my camera equipment.  I am currently shooting on the Canon 5D Mark II – and I love it!  But I’m just curious to see what else is available. In this weeks episode, I thought I’d share my favorite websites to help me with this task.   And I’m super […]
