No more stiff and generic looking portraits!
“After this posing class, I have no problems now being more vocal to suggest poses and direct my subjects. I left this course feeling more confident! ...The truth is, not all photographers are great teachers, but Caroline proved to be both!"
This system gives you enough structure to guide you, while allowing flexibility for different personalities to shine. This is more than just a list of random prompts. The flow of these prompts were thoughtfully designed to be natural and effortless.
CHEEK TO CHEEK
These prompts create an intimate space where your couples can deeply connect, allowing you to capture everything from the traditional photos that mom and dad will expect, to the personal and emotional moments.
P R O M
There's no better feeling than a good belly laugh. Give your clients something to giggle about, and they will remember their time with you for always. These silly prompts will even get your most stoic clients to crack up!
These cues are a great way to break the ice for even your most stoic and stiff clients! These will take you from quirky and artistic to giggly fun.
WALK / RUN
Evoke emotions and tell more intimate stories through movement and candid moments. These cues create memorable moments of laughter and romance, and are often a great way to conclude an album/story.
For the adventurous and playful clients, these cues are great for capturing motion and eliciting laughter and romance. These prompts can be either fun, romantic, or both!
Enhance your story with varying perspectives and interesting angles, creating photos that will set you apart from the competition. Your couples will love the experience of creating these just as much as the photos themselves.
Watch me use Pick Up Points at a real shoot. Unscripted and live, join me and see how I troubleshoot on the spot, and apply Pick Up Points in real life with a real couple I've never shot before. See how I take them from the awkward and stiff phase to a very relaxed and intimate place.
POSING AND DIRECTING FOR GORGEOUS PORTRAITS IN MINIMAL TIME, EVERY TIME!
I created Pick Up Points so that I could consistently create more emotional photos, even in my shyest clients. I wanted better flowing shoots - no more awkward pauses or creative blocks, and peace of mind at the end of every session that I got all of my signature shots.
Instead of memorizing a long list of poses and prompts, Pick Up Points allows me to focus on developing deeper connection with my clients instead - my shoots are unforgettable experiences in and of itself - my clients leave feeling more empowered and connected from tapping into a deeper emotional place.
I am excited to share my system with you so that you can also quickly warm up any client and deliver consistently moving portraits, regardless of personality types.
Who is this course for?
Any portrait photographer who wants to be able to quickly get their clients to relax and open up, who wants to keep inspiration flowing in order to capture genuine moments, and who wants to create a fun and memorable shooting experience for their clients.
How long is this course?
The course is broken down into 28 videos, and includes live demos with three different couples. Watch me photograph a couple I met for the first time in real-time, from breaking the ice to creating frame-worthy images.
How long do I have access to the course?
Once you purchase the course, you have lifetime access to it. Each Pick Up Point is covered in it's own chapter for easy referencing before any of your shoots.
