• Jeremy + Ashley

UNITED, I offered a little breakout class for an hour and a 1/2 called “The Posing Evolution”… well, that’s what it was supposed to be called…. it went on the schedule as “Flow Posing”. Katelyn James’ “Flow Posing” class was later nicknamed “Flo-Po” by my dear friend Jeremy Kester. That nickname has now stuck and those that attended the class and are blogging images are now officially referring to it as “KJ’s Flo-Po”. Ha! That will NOT become the permanent name for this class! I’ve already printed the pamphlets! So what is the “Posing Evolution” you might ask? Well, I’m not sharing ALL of my secrets

on the blog because you need to watch me do this. It just can’t be explained through a blog post! There is too much to it! The basic idea is that as photographers, we need to be extremely confident in our posing and our creativity. We should be SO confident that we can keep a couple in ONE spot and shoot a full session….and you probably think I’m crazy for saying that, but I really think it’s true! So here are my images of the ever so lovely Jeremy and Ashley!! Love them!!! So thankful they were able to model for us! Pay attention to their feet… for the majority of these, they hardly ever move:) We need to learn these time savers!! They can make a big difference on the wedding day!

    Thanks for sharing. I’m guessing that your class was FABULOUS. Wishing I would have been able to go to United. You should teach this at the P31 Conference this Fall. Just an idea. :)
