Lesson 4: Get in the picture, mama!

You spend a lot of time documenting, capturing, saving and sharing beautiful moments of your family. It’s important that you’re included in those moments, too, mama!

In this lesson I’ll give you strategies and examples to encourage you to get in the photo.

Action Step:

I want you to take a day and get dressed up in an outfit that makes you feel amazing. Then, apply the techniques you learn in the lesson to take pictures with your family. Remember that it doesn’t have to be a special occasion, it can be an outing at the park, or just a day spent indoors.

Make it fun. Get in the photo!
