Saturday with the Solars

So if you're a regular stalker of this blog, you've surely seen the hundreds of photos Josh has posted on here of our kiddos doing what they do best, being crazy little kids :). In the last year, we've had some interest from other parents who want to learn how to take better photos of their own kids, so they can document everyday life in between our portrait sessions. So, if you're one of those parents, listen up, here are the details...

Saturday with the Solars:

What it is: A 2 hour class designed to teach you how to take better photos of your kids. We'll teach you about good light, composition, and shooting on manual mode. We'll demonstrate how we take photos of our own kids doing normal stuff. We'll finish up with a question and answer session.

What it isn't: This is not a portrait workshop. We're not going to cover anything business-related. We're not going to teach you how to take photos of other people's kids. If you're interested in portrait photography, we may offer a photographer's workshop in the future. This is all about learning how to document your family throughout the year.

Requirements: You MUST have an SLR camera. You won't be able to apply what we teach you to your own photos if you just have a point-and-shoot.

Investment: $200 per person. We'll only take 5 people so our kids don't get overwhelmed :). Payment in full is required to reserve your space.

Date & Time: We are open to suggestion... Here are a few possibilities...
March 14th 9 a.m.
March 21st 4 p.m.
April 4th 4 p.m.

Other notes: This class is for parents only, so leave your little ones with your spouse or grandma :). If you are interested, but can't make it to the first class we offer, please send us an email anyway so we know if we should offer another class in the future.

And, here are a few captures from around the Solar household over the last few weeks to give you an idea of the stuff we'll go over :)
