in this course you’ll learn

I think every parent has the best intentions of documenting their “Little One’s” first EVERYTHING, but how do we do it WELL? How do we end up with timeless images that we can return to again & again instead of 150,000 photos taking up space on our phone that we have to sift through to find our favorites?

In this course, we’ll look at helpful tips for documenting the classic shots everyone wants, as well as looking at less obvious, but more meaningful moments. We’ll explore creative ways to get everyone (including you!) in the frame, and pinpoint small changes you can make to capture your photos (even ones on your phone) to the next level. Laura will walk you through her full editing workflow – also sharing a behind-the-scenes shooting video on documenting her 11-month old portraits, as well as working siblings into the frame.

  • The Classics: Newborn Photos, Monthly Photo Sessions, & The Big-One-Year and Cake-Smash

  • Memories & Milestones: Firsts & Lasts | More Than A Snapshot, Storytelling Elements, Holidays & Traditions

  • The Overlooked Everyday: Finding Beauty in the Routine, Chaos, and Mess of Motherhood

  • Relationships: Extended Family, Immediate Family – Dad, Immediate Family – Siblings, Immediate Family – All Together, and You & Baby

  • Watch Me Edit & Assignments: Go behind the scenes with Laura as she walks you step by step through her editing workflow process and a sneak into her 11-month old session!
