UNITED 2015 Styled Shoots For Photographers


Fredericksburg-Senior-Photographer_3544Happy Tuesday, friends! I am so excited to share a little surprise announcement on the blog today, and I hope you find it just as exciting!!! For those of you who are attending Showit UNITED this year in October…I am super pumped to share that I will be leading a senior styled shoot for the conference!!! This is my first year at UNITED (even though I’ve been a Showiteer since day one!) and I cannot wait to attend the conference + lead a shoot for other conference attendees!

If you are registered to attend UNITED, you can view all of the styled shoots HERE + register for my High School Senior Styled Shoot! My shoot is being held on the evening of October 20th (that’s Tuesday!) and registration goes live TODAY at 9am PST (noon EST!) I will be walking through all of my tips for natural posing, lighting, making your clients comfortable, in-person marketing tips + camera settings! We ask that you please only register for TWO shoots today, because spots will fill quickly! But, after today, you are more than welcome to hop back on and register for a few more! The $40 fee will cover all round-trip travel costs to the shoot (if applicable) and we are going to have SO much fun!!
