Interacting with kids is tough, especially as an adult. Learn how silly games and a thigh workout will help get you the best photographs of kids, ever! Heather’s Fairyography Photo Sessions are all about playing dress up, having fun, and feeling special! In these sessions, girls between 5 and 12 years old play dress-up with our exquisite, curated selection of fairy dresses & wings. These sessions allow them to lean into their magic and feel truly beautiful for an afternoon (and beyond!)
Over the morning/early afternoon, SIGMA Ambassador Heather Larkin will share how to run a kid’s fairytale photo session! While these photos will all be in the style of fairies, the techniques Heather will demonstrate can relate to any kids! Heather was a pre-k teacher before her 18 years in business as a children’s photographer and she can tell you all about:

– Which lenses to pick for the most magical fairy portraits.
– Silly games to play for real laughs and authentic expressions.
– Reverse psychology will win you points too
– Treating kids like real people, no baby talk here!
– Not resorting to bribes!

This workshop is an excellent opportunity for photographers of any skill level!

*Please be advised that while we strive to ensure easy access for all, due to the naturally varied topography, portions of any location walk may be inaccessible to those with mobility concerns.
