Family Portraits at Mt. Charleston

Posing and working with families for their portraits can be a challenge on many different levels and because we've had such an interest in this topic, we've set up this month's meetup for you to practice exactly this.  We will meet at 10am in the parking lot at the McDonald's at 95 and Durango, then carpool up to Mt. Charleston.  There will be 2 families available for you to practice posing and photographing in the beautiful scenery and snow.  Facing the challenges of posing multiple people, in difficult situations, or in an unfamiliar location will force you to rely on your photography skill set and people skills.  Take this opportunity to practice here first, learn from other members on how they would pose or face challenges that often come up during family shoots, and walk away with the knowledge and confidence to apply at your next family portrait session.

    While I didn't take many photos (just a few 'behind the scenes' shots) I did get some great ideas for upcoming shoots.

    I have always been weak in portrait photography, so I benefited from Yasmin's instructions on posing and lighting. She is a gracious organizer and teacher plus she took a terrific photo of my dog.

    The location was changed to Floyd Lamb State Park. I loved the shoot! Yasmin was fantastic in teaching us how to pose families that also included a family pet. She enlightened us about the myriad of backgrounds available everywhere outdoors, which opened my eyes to so much potential. The families that posed for us were wonderful and so accommodating. Thank you Yasmin for a memorable and valued educational experience.

    I am exciting to be on the other side of the camera while, picking up great tips at the same time.
