Limited Capacity seats available

Learn how to conceptualize and create magical photographs that capture the true spirit of childhood from one of the industry’s most recognized child photographers. Join Shalonda Chaddock of Chubby Cheek Photography as she shares her approach to creating stylized photos of children, including working with parents and children, using light, finding locations, sourcing and creating props, and sharing images with her audience. See how Shalonda creates a bridge between reality and fantasy with a peek behind the scenes at her process for styled mini-sessions and her "All About Me" styled sessions. Shalonda will share stories about balancing work life and motherhood, and talk about photographing her own children and how she keeps it fun for her own kids. She will discuss how children see the world in an unfiltered way, but at some point in life photographers tend to become aware that others are watching closely and we begin to pull back and shield ourselves. Shalonda will talk about that magic-stealer called self-doubt and how she manages to keep it at bay and create images that make her heart sing.

Learning Objectives:
1. Learn tried and true methods for recognizing and developing concepts that make photo shoots fun for kids and that feature their true personalities.
2. Understand the behind the scenes considerations involved in creating magical photos of children.
3. Learn how Shalonda overcomes self-doubt and tips for how to unapologetically share your own magic with the world.
