Unpopular Locations: Shooting with Creativity

By Nicole Geraldine

Are you tired of dreaming of beautiful breathtaking locations for your photos? Are you wanting to create magical and timeless photographs without having to drive hours to a new location or without having to fly to a different state? Then, this course is for you! I will walk you step by step on how I create dreamy galleries for my clients without having the perks of living near mountains, waterfalls or any beautiful backdrops. As many of you know, I live in Northern Virginia (45 minutes away from Washington DC). My area is very flat for the most part unless I drive at least 1.5 hours to the mountains. However, not all of my clients are willing to make the drive, so I have to get creative during my sessions.

Oh my word. Annie was AMAZING! I went into this mentorship hoping to gain a bit more insight into editing and session flow but had no idea I was going to walk away with as much new knowledge as I was given. Thank you SO so much!

I was so excited to see my girl Annie teaching with BEC. I did an editing mentorship with Annie a year ago in 2021 and she has grown so much in her craft- that now I wanted to learn from her! I believe in education and that we all have something so magical to offer. Annie is the queen at in home newborn sessions. Although I feel pretty comfortable in my in home newborns-I wanted to soak in a little of her brain because every post I am ooooing and awing at her photos. My goal was to see how she processes her session workflow. I LOVED her mention of outdoor shots of the home. I think it's easy to get hung up on not moving around a space and she really shows how much variety a gallery can have with the amount of space and environment is available! Highly recommend this course for anyone who needs a little inspiration to get out and shoot a lifestyle newborn session!
