The Power of Moments

with Letha Imboden

No matter who or where we are, we can all relate to average moments of magic and grace. Moments that fill our memories with tender touches, warm embraces, and soft giggles. Moments that are powerful to us. These powerful moments are ones that when we look back on them, they lift us above the everyday, pull us out of the darkest moments. Inspire joy, delight, and a pure sense of connection. As photographers it is our job to look for and target a specific moment, capture it, and to elevate it. To truly to take the ordinary moments and turn them into extraordinary pieces of art for our clients.

 

How do we know what to look for and when do we look for it?

How do we take a regular session and elevate the experience for your client?

This course is designed for those wanting to enhance their client experience while producing fully emotive images without relying on poses and prompts. I teach you how to deepen your client connection and where to find their powerful moments. Together we’ll edit images in Lightroom and Photoshop and show you a few tricks to aid in enhancing emotion in your final product.

Meet Your

Instructor

Hello fellow BEC artists!

My name Letha, a fine art lifestyle family photographer based in Clearwater, FL. 

I began my adult journey fully immersing myself into the world of psychology. Studying, observing, learning; devouring everything I could. I watched the world around me filled with so many ordinary moments from everyday people that were truly extraordinary to me!

I became obsessed with documenting life and everyday moments.

For 13 years I put my psychology skills to work as an art teacher for special needs students. In my 11th year, I was told that I was “meant for that job” – that was a very pivotal moment in my life. In my heart I knew it was time to move on, to continue documenting life in a grander scheme. 

Adding a fine art aspect into my family sessions; they became more than simply documenting. It became more about capturing what I see as an artist while staying true to the emotions that were there. My camera became my main tool for creating pieces of art. Allowing my work to deeply express the feelings and emotions that were there.

I’m always climbing my way towards being my very best, learning new things and I take on every project with a fresh perspective, deep curiosity, and a willingness to test, explore and to fully immerse myself into emotion; into the story being told. 

In all my work, I seek the moments when ordinary people are at their most extraordinary, when they are the most special and most purely themselves. To distill the essence of who they are in a single image. 

No matter where we are in life, we can all relate to average moments of magic and grace.
