What if I told you that your struggle with family session lighting has NOTHING to do with your lens, your camera, or even the location? It has everything to do with where you place your clients—and I can’t wait to walk you through exactly how I get perfect skin tones, exposure and golden light!

This video is a part of our Family Deconstruction Series in the Collective and that means it is an in-depth breakdown of everything you need to know about what I’m looking for in terms of lighting my clients. I use this method around the world! So if you’re not shooting in a field in Indiana—that’s fine! I’ve shot on the beaches of Australia, the canals of Venice, the deserts of Phoenix, and even on Gypsy land in Portugal—and every time this is going to be what I’m looking for!

On top of the secret to great lighting, you’ll get to watch me interact, pose and give prompts to this family of four!

Once you’ve mastered location, light, and posing you have hit the trifecta of creating family images right?


While all those things probably make for a beautiful image— if your clients show up in white t-shirt and jeans, your images are going to fall short.

Styling your clients and guiding them into picking out the right colors, texture, and style for their family is a huge part of every session,

which is why I invited Heather Kiesel to teach you all about her styling process for clients! She’ll walk you through the process of styling two families, one with teenagers and another with small children, so you can pass that knowledge on to your own clients and create timeless images that feel effortless!

Lastly, I’ll wrap up this all-encompassing family bundle with my batch editing workflow. From culling a session to editing in ACR and then the final actions in Photoshop, you’ll see how I can deliver 200-600 (yes, SIX HUNDRED) images and have them done the day of the session!

This is the motherload bundle for family photographers!
