Using Layers to Create Dimension

By Theresa Sherron

This course is for the photographers who want that storytelling feel to their photos but not sure how to create it! This course goes into why I layer with dimension in my sessions and create a natural flow and feel to the images. Layering can come from styling and clothing, yes, but to create a feel where your eyes go into an image and looking into it and not at it, creates a feeling and emotion, which comes from layering your clients (positioning them correctly) during the session. It is so important to know why you are doing this and not because "everyone does". You need to feel comfortable in the decisions you are making and creating a comfortable workflow during your sessions to make sure your clients are feeling comfortable and at ease trusting YOU and YOUR VISION with your style of art.

A lot of photographers tend to do the "layering method" because that's what they visually see other photographers do.

But really, WHY are we doing this?

This is something I've been doing for years and created a reason why in my head that I am excited to explain to you and make you feel more COMFORTABLE and have an easier workflow during your sessions!

Together lets:

- Explore why we layer our clients
- Explore how to create a organic flow to your sessions
- Explore how to have your clients more comfortable during a storytelling session
- Create feeling in our art

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!
