May Growing Confidence Photography Workshop for Moms PART 2 {McKinney, TX Me Ra Koh Confidence Teacher}

Yesterday you got to experience the behind-the-scenes of the most recent Growing Confidence Photography Workshop with Jen & Molly.  IF you missed it, you can check it out HERE.

I am so proud of the 2 women that attended the May Workshop.  They were not afraid to get down to babies level to best capture the story.  One of the key elements to being a great storyteller through imagery is getting the details!  Confidence Student Jen nailed some details of our subjects in the images below.

One very important detail in my book for babies is those stinkin' cute PIGGIES they have! Jen captured those sweet curled up baby toesies for both babies that attended the Workshop.  SO YUMMY!!

Another detail I love about babies is their eyelashes!  This is a perfect eyelash shot Jen! You not only captured the eyelashes but we get to also see the sweet nose, squishy cheekers and puckered baby lips to boot!

I love this image of baby girl because she had her face right up to the lens!  She seriously wanted to get her hands on the camera to get her photography career started right now!

Who doesn't love babies tiny hands rubbing their eyes telling mama they are tired.  Let me tell you sweet baby girl, being a model is exhausting work!

Feeding time!  Babies and their bottles, not to mention the skill to feed themselves!  I love this! It won't be long before this baby girl is eating on her own and moving on to sippy cups!

Molly had a blast utilizing mama has her backdrop!  I love having mama's presence in the shots!  Too often mom is the one behind the camera and not the one holding baby!  

What a great profile image here of baby with a glimpse of mom adoring her daughter looking on!

Molly utilized both mama's holding their baby so they could look over mama's shoulder.  I like the presence of mama as the one holding onto them! LOVE!

This capture of mom adoring her daughter knowing she is showing off her baby blues and adorable bottom teeth with that precious smile.........MELT.MY.HEART!

Again telling the story with DETAIL SHOTS!  Nuf Said!

One of the things we discuss is Shutter Speed when capturing these quick lil' munchkins! The next 2 shots show how Molly knew to have her Shutter Speed up to freeze the action!  
The 1st shot is of baby girl shaking that necklace super fast!  Had she had her shutter speed too low the pearls would be super blurry!  This way we see the Pearls in ACTION!

In the next image Molly also had her shutter speed set properly to freeze baby in action while she is playing with mama's sunglasses and getting super excited about this new toy! Can you see the babies excitement?

Seriously, let's really congratulate these girls on a job well done!!  All of these images are taken within hours of learning HOW TO SHOOT IN MANUAL!  Is that crazy or what?  I am telling you this Workshop is changing the way these mom's capture their family story the minute they leave!  It melts my heart that God is giving me this opportunity to reach moms in Dallas, Wisconsin and even Houston to equip them with the knowledge to really step back, pause and capture what they see, feel and know they never want to forget through images that will tell the story for many years to come!  I am blessed to be sharing my knowledge with these moms that have a heart to tell their childrens story AND to tell it well!  What a legacy they will be leaving for their kids!

Don't forget Jen is going to share her experience from her perspective in the tomorrow's PART 3 blog!  You don't want to miss what she has to say!

WHEN is the next WORKSHOP?  That's the question I keep getting asked!  I am taking the Growing Confidence Workshop to WISCONSIN on June 28th!  There are only a few seats left so hurry to grab your spot!
