Family Portraits

Family Portraiture

Join Suzette Allen, Portrait Artist, and learn how to work with families to capture the love and relationships in beautiful portraits and Live Portraits! As a pro photographer over 20 years, Suzette has embraced modern technology and mirrorless cameras to expand her portraits into hybrid moving portraits as well!

In this informative class, she will show you how she poses, lights, and directs her subjects to capture their personality and provide pleasing compositions and groupings for wall portraits. Along with that, capturing her subjects in 4K video also allows her to freeze THAT moment of fun or sweet expression and fleeting glances, in high enough resolution to make wall portraits from the video frames! No kidding. (Come to see the wall portrait samples!) From couples with newborns to large families of multiple family groupings, you will see how to capture the connections and priceless memories your clients and families will love!
