Changing your life starts with just one step….
enrol now and this is what you will learn
Create Beautiful Artwork for your Walls
The most powerful images are those that tell a story. Understand how to use light, your environment, posing and creativity to create stunning artwork for your walls. Be inspired to go above and beyond the classic portrait to create powerful photographs that give the ultimate wow factor.
Systems, Editing and Workflow
Start by being systematic. I share my workflow systems for getting organised, backing up, optimising for print and web. Discover my simple editing techniques that lift your photographs to a professional level.
Be Prepared for Any Outdoor Shooting Scenario
Feel confident and in control and adapt to anything that comes your way! We look at case studies for typical outdoor locations including Park, Beach, Farm and Urban settings. We knuckle down specific poses to control your subjects and ensure you are armed and prepared to get the essential kids shots whatever the location may be.
Shoot Stylish Images in Everyday Homes
For people with smaller children and when weather is unpredictable, shooting at home is often easier. However every home is different, with different lighting challenges. We go room by room in real homes, pose by pose, with exact settings, behind the scene set ups and posing ideas to create images that look they like belong in the pages of a glossy magazine.
Pose Multiple Children Anywhere Anytime
Posing more than one child can be difficult. Get an arsenal of ideas and learn how to adapt and stay in control when shooting multiple kids at once. We go through specific poses for 2, 3, and 4 children, ranging in ages with exact settings and downloadable posing guides for easy reference.
Discover the Secrets to Emotive Newborn Photography
Shooting newborns is more complex than it looks. Discover the different approach required compared with rowdy sessions with older children. In this module we go behind the scenes with video footage and photos from actual newborn sessions and the resulting images to discover my exact techniques for creating stunning newborn photographs. Continue the journey of growth for your baby's first year with a downloadable posing guide for babies up to 12 months old.

I've had my own photography business for around 12 months and when I decided to expand from doing real estate and commercial work, to doing kids and families, I was looking for a course that would open my eyes to how to best pose kids and families, how to make the best use of light and location, and also some editing tips.
Before I worked with Clare in Perfecting Portraits, I had a really good handle on how to use my camera, what setting to use, but I was never really happy with the shots of kids I was getting. When I heard about Perfecting Portraits, I jumped at the chance to work with a professional photographer who produces some beautiful work in a style similar to what I want to achieve.
Since completing the course, my images have improved enormously and I am really happy with the work I am doing now. Thanks Clare, I highly recommend Perfecting Portraits for anyone who wants to improve their child photography!

I feel like Perfecting Portraits has really challenged me to think creatively and to look at different perspectives when taking pictures. Before Clare's course my photos were not dynamic, they were not interesting to look at all! Now, not only are they crystal clear, tack sharp, with sparkly eyes and beautiful light, but they are also interesting to look at with the composition as well.
I was really surprised that the Facebook group that Clare has put together was something I would find so useful! I've been able to meet women from all over the world through this group, and have been so encouraged and so uplifted from the guidance and tips and just so inspired by these women and their beautiful children and photography. I feel like the Facebook group was such a big bonus that when I signed up, I didn't even think was necessary!
I feel like completing Perfecting Portraits has been priceless. I think my pictures really are gorgeous now, I have this skill for the rest of my life and I am so excited I will be able to treasure these photos forever and my kids will have these memories. I am just so thankful.
