Are you completely moved when you see a family portrait?
I'll be the first to admit I'm not. I'm not moved to tears by a family portrait normally...they don't usually make me crave a family session for my own family.
But then...I saw this video on the Chic Critique Forum blog. It was beautiful...and moving...and I booked my family session with my favorite photographer down at the beach.
The France Family from Kelli France on Vimeo.
The video is of the France family...and she should look familiar if you're a Savvy Reader. Kelli was a speaker at the 2010 Savvy Workshop in St Michaels, MD and we loved her! We loved her so much that we ask her back this year for the 2012 Savvy Workshop! (to be honest, we LOVED all the Savvy Speakers from 2010...we just wanted to add some different speakers each time and some had other obligations and couldn't make it this year).
We are thrilled Kelli is coming to the beach to join us and she will be teaching the attendees how to make these amazing videos and add them to your sessions. I think clients will love them...and it gives them a reason to hire you over the competition. We all know that new photographers are everywhere and offering crazy low prices for you, the experienced photographer, to compete with. This is something that will set apart from the others and the families will have an amazing glimpse into their life at that time...it shows something way beyond what an image can.
If you are interested in learning about how in incorporate cinematic sessions into your photography business, we invite you to join us at the Savvy Sisterhood Workshop on October 1-4, 2012 at Alys Beach! We'd love to see you there!
The images were taken by the fabulous Yan...we love her work!
You can also see more of the France family images on the Chic Critique Forum blog here. Kelli is als0 the creator of this wonderful forum and blog for women photographers.
Do you need one more reason to join us at the beach for the Savvy Workshop? The accommodations are simply fabulous! Come join us...bring a girlfriend...or a house full of friends...it will be the best "work related" trip ever!
