What is the #1 struggle you face in your photography?

We have polled our audience multiple times over the years, asking:

and EVERY SINGLE TIME easily 90% of people say:

"INVITING REAL EMOTION
AND CONNECTION."

They might use words like struggling to direct, to pose, to prompt, to make people feel comfortable, but they’re all saying the SAME THING.

You know what this tells us? There is a massive need in this industry for education on inviting connection.

And this is a problem because of the unprecedented current cultural climate of fabrication in photography.

More people take photos than ever before... and with the addictive side of Instagram culture that demands engaging content no matter the cost, we are INUNDATED with fast, fabricated, filtered images. 

*Cue the double taps...*
But where’s the (non-emoji) heart?  ❤️


Why?

People are fed up with fabrication.
People are sick of fake.
People are over photos that aren’t the real deal. We see so many fake moments and wonder,
"Is there another way?"

There has never been a better time in history for photographers to carve a new path towards real connection. 

You’ve probably asked this to yourself dozens of times. Maybe even HUNDREDS.

Maybe you’ve asked it as you think about beginning a career in photography. Maybe you ask it every single time you’re driving to a shoot. Maybe you have it in the back of your mind the ENTIRE TIME you’re with your clients. And perhaps you even ask it as you look at the photos you’ve taken and think, “There has to be a better way…”

So…what’s the question?

WHICH LEADS US TO

THE MILLION DOLLAR QUESTION

How do I invite real connection in my photography WITHOUT forcing emotion from my clients?

This is a question that can rob you of your creativity, can make you freeze up on a shoot, and can even make you to throw in the towel on a career you thought you’d love.

 Then keep reading...

I  (Athena) still remember the first time I asked myself this question (or, rather, let myself finally think it). I was on a shoot back in early 2015 with a couple, and I was stressing. Heart beating, hands sweating, stressing.

I had already been shooting for a few years and had worked with couples before, but they usually had ideas to fill the time (copying photos they’d seen on Pinterest… sigh). This couple, however, just stared at me. They were waiting for every specific instruction, and "getting" emotion out of them was like trying to make a statue smile. 

This was the first time this has happened to me. No amount of jokes I cracked or words I said helped. They were uncomfortable in front of a camera, and I was uncomfortable behind it. 

So what did I do?

I freaked. I fumbled. I forced. I kept thinking, “I HAVE to get good photos of them somehow,” so I fabricated “cute” moments by straight out asking them - kiss her cheek, hold her hands, tell her something nice, pick her up, touch her nose... You get the point (we’ve all been there).

Afterwards, I let this question bubble to the surface as the tears came: How am I meant to keep doing this? It doesn’t feel right to fake the moment, to outright ask them to do something just for a good photo… but I don’t know how to help my clients experience REAL connection!

Here’s the thing about this burning question… I’m grateful I asked it back then, and for the journey I went on to discover the answer (and eventually Camron, when we met a few months later). 

Why?

Because that SINGLE question can make or break your career as a photographer of people. And you know what? The answer can also stop you from burn out, bring back your passion, and finally have unshakable confidence in your shoots.

Curious about what it is?

Before you can begin inviting real emotion and connection in your photography, You must first understand:

The 3 Reasons You’re Struggling with
AWKWARD or FAKE Shoot Experiences

(and how to change that, fast)

NEXT STRUGGLE (SWIPE)

THE GOOD NEWS IS:

LIVE BEHIND THE SCENES FOOTAGE!

yep, BE OUR VIRTUAL SECOND SHOOTER!

PLUS

We have been basically preparing for this Masterclass for our entire career, but our very first ‘pen to paper,’ ‘rubber-hits-the-road’ moment was when we gathered with a small group of people in an empty, unremarkable room in Seattle and photographed real connection.

We didn’t begin with a marketing strategy, a module outline, or a social media plan. We began with them. The clients. We decided the very FIRST thing we would do in building our Masterclass would be to capture the raw, unedited footage of HOW we photograph real clients. There was no fancy clothes, no insane mountain view or sunset, nothing of significance in the empty room - it was just us and them.

Our Virtual Second Shooter footage is one of our favorite parts of the entire Masterclass. It’s also the part that STILL makes us cry (well, Athena cries).

BUT WAIT, THERE'S MORE!

You probably think 100 is a nice sounding number we came up with for marketing purposes, and we’ve scraped and fluffed and puffed up a few dozen Invitations. It’s not.

We literally spent YEARS on these. To give you an insight - when I (Athena) first began learning from mentors and others in the industry, I learned the concept that it’s not about what I can say but what I can INVITE from my clients. I was given about 20, maybe 25 powerful “prompts” to work with from various workshops and mentors. That was 5 years ago.

Since then, Camron and I have probably given 1000 completely unique Invitations to our clients (and that is a modest guess). Invitations are INFINITE, because human beings are infinite.

However, we understand the need for concrete starting points for Invitations, so we put together our BEST 100 Invitations for Couples, Individuals, Groups and Families.

100 INVITATION CARDS

bonus 01

"I printed all of them and take them with me to shoots!"

Sarah

"I read over them before every shoot and incorporate them into the experience!"

Ashlyn

"I have a terrible memory, so they help me remember my favorites!"

Jamie

"I use them for a quick refresh and now inviting joy comes easy!"

Sydney

You will already have 100 of ours and would have learned the MINDSET behind them, but in this Bonus we give you a practical step by step framework towards creating your own - both in preparation, as well as spontaneously during the shoot experience based on whomever is in front of you. In this Bonus we give you our ‘magic questions’ to ask yourself that will help you create invitations

CREATING YOUR OWN INVITATIONs

bonus 02

A BONUS DIGITAL COURSE

Lesson 01 - The Magic Questions
Lesson 02 - The Mindset Questions
Lesson 03 - The Practical Questions
Lesson 04 - When it doesn’t “work” (answering YOUR questions)

Once you have learned about our method of Invitations and you want to put it into practice, how will you actually GET the shoots to practice on? How will you grow your business to the point of taking it full time? How can you get your dream shoots while still having integrity? We are going to teach you ALL the practical next steps for you to build a scroll-stopping, eye-catching, connection-focused portfolio, and how you can fill your calendar with DREAM shoots! This is included in your Masterclass offer (I know, crazy), because even though it didn’t ‘fit’ with the Masterclass content we KNEW we wanted to help equip you in this area!

HOW TO BUILD YOUR PORTFOLIO + FILL YOUR CALENDAR WITH DREAM SHOOTS

bonus 03

A BONUS DIGITAL COURSE

Lesson 01 - The 2 secrets to building your new portfolio
Lesson 02-  Your ideal client + a portfolio you’re proud of
Lesson 03 - Filling your calendar (upselling + other ideas)
Lesson 04 - Social media as your digital portfolio
Lesson 05 - Building a website to convert enquiries to clients
Lesson 06 - Social media with integrity (*must watch*)

And the truth is, we probably should. It’s THAT good, and the results you can experience are massive. 

The truth is, this Masterclass should be at least the cost of shooting one wedding, because shooting one wedding with our method of Invitations will not only guarantee your clients a powerful and beautiful experience, but those images will hold the connection that future clients will want to book you for. The average cost of wedding photography in the US is around $2,000. So, with that in mind, the logical industry-standard total cost of this Masterclass should total at least be $2,000, but we had something else in mind… 

You’re likely thinking that we’re going to charge thousands of dollars for this Masterclass...

Here’s what MASTERCLASS ALUMNI ARE SAYING

"When I started this Masterclass I feel like I was just fudging my way through so many shoots (weddings, families & portraits). But these two gave me purpose, direction and drive to really connect with my couples. The Masterclass has shown me how to help them relax, connect with each other and fill those "awkward" moments you get as a photographer when your brain goes blank. I now feel confident in the way my shoot flows. But most of all my couples connect with me in a way that they never have before, and as a result the images speak for themselves and I have more bookings than ever! I would 100% recommend this Masterclass to anyone who feels like they are struggling to have there sessions flow naturally, that want those natural emotions come out of their images and that doesn't feel like you have to force your clients to do silly uncomfortable + unnatural poses."

The me before this course came into my life makes me literally cringe. I was in the middle of transitioning from being a family/senior portrait photographer to being a couples/wedding photographer and at that point I thought saying "do something cute" was enough to conduct a couples session. BARF. I value honest, emotional photography, and I needed to learn how to bring raw moments into my session. Enter Athena & Camron. This course put what I was feeling about photography into far more eloquent words than I could say, and helped me actually translate this to the experiences and products I give my clients. Shoots went from being awkward to a lot more enjoyable for all parties involved. This course completely changed my business, and I credit it with really helping me take this thing full time just about 6 months later!

The thing is, you COULD continue on as you are, without the framework, steps and tools for inviting connection. You don’t join the Masterclass, you don’t learn about Invitations, you don’t watch the lessons and do the work on growing and changing your own and your clients experiences, and you’re in the same place this time next year in a big open loop - still not having the experiences you desire, still not capturing the photos your clients want, and still not booking the work that you love.

OR, the second option is that you can 100% commit to changing the way you photograph THIS YEAR using our PROVEN practice of Invitations and the education offered in our Masterclass.

If you’re ready to change, we want to invite you inside the Embracing Connection Masterclass


Still undecided?

CLOSING SOON!

OR, are you going to commit to changing the way you photograph THIS YEAR using our PROVEN practice of Invitations inside our Masterclass?

Don’t wait another day to begin your journey towards Embracing Connection.

You might be thinking that you can just join next time we open, but IF we open it up again, that won’t be until later in 2020, and you’ll be in the same place you are now, longing for another way.

This is your moment. There has also never been a better time in YOUR life. How can we say that with confidence without knowing your story? Because there has never been a better time in HISTORY. People are fed up with fabrication. People are sick of fake. People are over photos that aren’t the real deal. It is your moment to offer something more.

FAQ'S

It seems like a lot of what you teach is for wedding photographers. Will it honestly be helpful if I don’t shoot couples or weddings?

This Masterclass is for ANY photographer who struggles with knowing how to invite and capture true connection and real emotion, and offer a powerful shoot experience from beginning to end. 

While we have spent the last few years as wedding photographers capturing COUPLES, our experience and therefore this Masterclass covers many other kinds of photography.

Our Invitations cover everyone from Couples to Weddings to Groups to Families to Individuals. The Virtual Second Shooter Footage is only of couples, however we include photo stories of other shoots.

Because a human is a human, whether their partner or friend or family is next to them or not, our method of Invitations will help invite them to a place of real emotion. So YES, it will be helpful for you!


Is this for beginners? What if I’m just starting and don’t have any shoots booked yet but I want to become a full time photographer. Is there anything in here for growing my business?

Yes! If we’d had this training when we first began our photography, our journey would have been REVOLUTIONIZED from the start! If there is one ‘secret’ to our success it is this, and if you can get it into your hands early on that is a WIN. While we consider ourselves experts in this area, we take you through step by step of the entire mindset and methods, which means no matter where you’re at with your journey, whether amateur or professional, you can adopt the practices within and see your clients experience powerful shoots (and you too!).

Does this Masterclass also teach about editing?

While we do include an entire lesson on our editing workflow as it pertains to you and your clients shoot experience, we don’t go into depth on our editing process as this is a Masterclass on Connection, not on Editing. We will give you information on ALL the tools we use, and briefly talk through how we keep connection and people at the heart of our editing, but we do not give you specific instructions on how to edit.

We have an entire Editing Workshop included with our Seasons Preset Bundle (Desktop + Mobile Presets, worth $149US). If you decide to join Embracing Connection Masterclass, at checkout you will be given the opportunity to add our entire Seasons Preset Bundle (including our Video Editing Workshop) for the exclusive member discount of 40% off.


What’s the return policy?

You can join our Masterclass with full confidence because we offer a 30 day money back guarantee if you feel it didn’t live up to the promises we’ve made. 

This eliminates any risk you might feel in purchasing, but this Masterclass isn’t meant to be opted into lightly. We are looking for serious action takers - this is a completely comprehensible Masterclass the better part of a DECADE in the making. With that in mind, you’ll need to show you gave the program a try before requesting a refund. We are not looking for tire-kickers, but true go-getters that want to dive in and see real transformation.

If you do the work and implement these tools on a shoot and you’re still not satisfied, show us the work within 30 days of enrolling and we will GLADLY give you a refund.

I’ve seen Posing Prompt Cards for <$100 and free youtube videos about posing your clients. What makes this worth the investment?

If we had chosen just to share our 100 Invitation Cards (worth $97), though ‘cheaper,’ we would have been doing you a disservice. To receive the Invitations without the training and education behind them would be irresponsible of us. Invitations are not a trick, and what we teach you are not ‘tips.’ This Masterclass is our heart, a manifestation of the greatest thing we’ve learned during our career - that connection is at the heart of a powerful photograph, and that truly the experience and moments matter more than the photo ever will.

As for our video content, besides the fact they are MUCH longer than youtube videos, the value lies not only in the complete step-by-step instruction, the virtual second shooter footage, and the lengthy stories and practices of real shoots, but also in the downloads. No youtuber will also give you their entire template set of questionnaires, email templates, checklists, and insider training on systems and workflow.

Keep in mind, we are offering ECM to you at 83% OFF of the actual real-world cost. We have sought to remove every barrier possible for those that are genuinely committed to growing in this area. If that’s you, we can’t wait for you to join and get started!


How many hours should I be setting aside to work through the Masterclass?

With 5 Modules and 32 Lessons each, this Masterclass isn’t like a netflix show you watch in the background while you edit (we know you do that!). It is a deep dive into meaning and truth, with Virtual Second Shooter footage, tons of photo stories, and engaging teaching segments from us in every single lesson. You are worth this time. Lay aside distractions, and focus.

We guarantee after you’re finished the Masterclass you’ll want to rewatch or listen back to sections, so we included both Video AND audio that can be downloaded and watched offline or listened to on-the-go like a podcast.

In terms of actual hours, the Masterclass totals around 5 hours.
