This Posing for Families and Children Class is exclusively focused on the posing of families and children for better portraits and is taught by professional photographer Chris Stambaugh.

One skill the frequently eludes many photographers is finding a way to skillfully and naturally pose their subjects. With enough practice, posing adults can become relatively easy because they’ll usually listen to your feedback. However, posing children requires an entirely special skill set.

Through a series of classroom lectures, demonstrations and hands-on exercises, Chris will help you learn to pose children and families in a natural yet dynamic way.
