Lesson 3: Styling your photos like a pro

Having an eye for objects that will look great in your pictures is a skill that every mom can master. In this lesson, I’ll show the power of decorating your space to enhance the overall final picture.

The key is fully understanding that in photography (as in life), less is more.

Action Step:

Take the time to look around your home for beautiful objects you can include in your photos. It can be as simple as a blanket, a pretty pillow or a cute outfit that you love on your child, or even for you. Keep things simple and get creative!
