BOUTIQUE PROGRAM: Surf's Up!: An Adventurous Maternity Shoot
Limited Capacity full

Surf's Up! California is the ultimate place when it comes to beach vibes! Join Sophia for a surf-inspired maternity shoot at the beach with a young couple. She will show you how she uses the beach and ocean as the "prop" for her sessions and how to naturally (and minimally) incorporate props.. We will go over how she guides her expecting couples with gentle direction and lots of fun in order to capture authentic images. This is no boring maternity shootout, and you'll learn how to ensure that the father-to-be is an active participant for most of the session. If the conditions permit, Sophia will also show you how she uses the ocean to create images that are unique and out-of-the-box by using her underwater housing as well as how she creates over/under images by the shore.

Participants will be invited to shoot along in small groups, so bring your camera and a couple of favorite lenses. Shooting in manual and being able to change your settings on the fly are highly recommended but not required.

Learning Objectives:

- Learn how to gently direct instead of posing and how to nail those moments that happen in the blink of an eye
- Learn how to infuse fun/emotion into a shoot that most husbands find boring
- Learn how I use the environment and the light as main source of inspiration and how to very minimally style a shoot in a way that will not take away from the life-like experience
- Experience how Sophia edits a few images from the shoot in an exclusive video for participants that will be delivered after the shoot
