You’ll have lifetime access to the course, and you’re free to go at your own pace. Everything created by me in the membership will be available after the membership ends as well so you’ll be able to access it anytime. Nothing in the course or membership will be there as fluff just to fill time and create the illusion of getting more. I’ve purposely simplified so we are cutting right to the guts of what you need to know so you can spend time applying.
Whether you haven’t started family photography yet or you’re burnt out, if you want concrete ways to work with families along with the big picture vision to carry you as long as you want to shoot families, this course is for you. I’ve had photographers go through the material who have been shooting for 6 weeks and photographers who’ve been shooting for 20 years, and both loved the experience equally. We don't cover basics like how to use your camera, but if you've got those down you're ready for this course!
The principles of working with families apply no matter what medium you shoot! While I do cover how I work with film indoors and shooting film with kids, you can skip those parts and the value is still there. Check out the reviews below to see if you agree! About half of the photographers in the course are digital shooters, half are film shooters.
Purist documentary photographers. Because the course spends a bunch of time on directing families, if you’re committed to NOT directing your subjects at all, this approach isn’t a good fit.
If you just want to know how to get more clients. This course is focused on the WORK. I’m an open book and will share about business, but we are going to hone in on making better photos before we try to get people to buy those photos. :)
“My biggest fear in buying the course was that I wouldn’t have enough “practical” things to use during shoots, but that went away fairly quickly as I went through the course material.
I gained so much more than I expected, and found the confidence to try new things and direct a shoot more to tell my story of family. If you need the confidence to start truly thinking of yourself as an artist, you NEED to take this course!
Thank you so much, Brooke, for sharing all your knowledge and your heart with us. I’ve taken quite a few photography courses, and yours has left an impression on me unlike the others- I think it’s because, for the first time, I’m actually starting to think of myself as a real artist, instead of someone who takes photos because it’s fun. I’ve become more intentional, more vulnerable, and grown over these quick few months… so thank you, again.”
“I worried that it would have been another course which focused mainly on the “theory” behind family photography but not so much on the practical side. Many great courses out there but not many of them focus on the actual true challenges of photographing families and the very old dilemma of closing the gap between what you want to shoot and your client’s expectations.
If you’re looking for real, practical advice on how to overcome the most common family photography challenges as well as inject your work with new life and your own unique perspective as a photographer this course is for you. I found the course very inspirational as well as truly helpful. It’s clear you’ve put your heart into it and it shows.
The format is also quite unique as well as the approach. It’s an interesting mix of inspiration and theory and very practical advice and tips. It’s very special in that sense and probably the first course I have taken of this kind. I thought it was definitely worth the money spent on it.”
“I guess my biggest worry was that the information wouldn’t be useful or practical for use with clients. Instead, I felt like the entire course was designed for working photographers, keeping client expectations in mind.
I would say the most refreshing thing was how transparent Brooke was about her process from initial planning to editing and sharing complete final galleries. She shared her struggles when things didn’t go perfectly and how she overcame any issues that arose.
The Facebook group is a huuuge bonus to the already amazing content.
It was super awesome getting real time advice from Brooke and interacting with other photographers in the same boat. It’s been great to follow the journeys of other course-mates as well! Get it. Now.
So much amazing information about how to become the photographer you have always wanted to be.
The course taught me more about myself and my own voice than how to emulate someone else, which honestly was a huge shift from other online workshops I’ve done in the past. I also feel like it gave me permission to create the work I wanted to create.”
“This is the single best thing I did for my business this year. I have taken a couple of family photography courses in years past and this is the one that actually CHANGED my photography for the BETTER. I go into every session seeing things differently – I don’t know how to explain it, ha! It’s like I walk into the room and see the opportunities created by the light, then use Brooke’s tricks/games/tips to make it happen.
You will not regret purchasing this course! The Love Soaked Family Photography course has given me the tools to change my work in ways that I have been LONGING to see – FINALLY family sessions that I am GIDDY over!!
Brooke challenges you to dig DEEP into your story of family, and dig even further into HOW you are going to tell that story through images. WOW. I go into sessions feeling inspired, charged and EXCITED, to see what challenges and gifts each family has to offer and how I will use those to create beautiful images. Rather than falling back into safe poses and old habits I go into a session EAGER to try new things, see light differently, and get outside of my comfort zone to make ART!
Cannot say enough good things about this course.”
