WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU WERE IN FRONT OF THE CAMERA?

As a photographer who specializes in documenting motherhood and has done this professionally for over a decade now, I know first hand how difficult it is to get in the photo. I love being a photographer, and feel so honored to document these keepsake moments for clients around the world, but realized that as the years went by, I spent more and more time behind the camera, and felt guilty about missing these moments for myself.

I knew something had to change and was certain that I didn't want to constantly ask my husband to take photos, or seek out a new photographer every single month to help me document these moments. I was determined to master taking self-portraits, so I could easily document my most precious moments, and finally, be in the photo too, in a beautiful, stress-free way.

When I finally figured out the easiest way to do it (and let me tell you, I have tried EVERYTHING) I realized I was finally able to be my own dream photographer, and I'm beyond thrilled to launch this course to teach you how you can do the same. At the end of the day, I think it's so important to have this valuable skill so we can start showing up in photos too.

These moments matter. You matter. Your story matters.

As a photographer and mama, I hope you see that learning this will be a gift that continues giving as the years pass by.

I LOVED this course. I became a photographer because I had a passion for taking photos and helping people capture special memories. I have so many beautiful photos of my children but so few with me in them so this is going to be a game changer. I'm so often reliant on the mobile 'selfie' (not particularly flattering) so I can't wait to now get some 'real' photos. Thanks Elena for keeping me inspired in my photography.

Does this sound familiar? If so, this course will be perfect for you!

I fell in love with photography because I didn't want to miss these moments, then somehow along the way, I found myself hiding behind my camera more and more. The truth is that I can think of so many reasons as to why it's hard to document these moments for ourselves, especially documenting portraits with us in them, and maybe you can relate to some of these too.

I don't have a photographer
I feel rushed and awkward
My husband hates taking photos
My kids don't listen when I try and take photos
I don't like _____ about myself
I can't afford to hire a photographer
I'm more comfortable behind the camera
I take plenty of photos of my kids
I don't need photos with me in them

But here's the thing...you do. I can't wait to teach you how to do your own photos so you can start showing up in front of the camera too.

FAQ

  • How is the class presented?

    The entire class is in video format so you can easily watch what I do, and go over the process with me.

  • Will I be able to re-watch the videos?

    Absolutely! Once you're signed up for the class, you'll have access to the video and can re-watch the videos as many times as you'd like.

  • Will there be a separate Facebook Group for this class?

    Yes! Since this course is all about taking self-portraits, there will be a complementary group for those who sign up where they can easily share their portraits, ask me more questions and connect with others in the group. This will be a private group and only open to those sign up for the class.

  • You have a 100% money back guarantee; how does that work?

    If you feel like I didn't deliver and go above and beyond with the course, then simply email me personally at elena@modernmarket.co and let me know so I can make it right.

  • Is this only for professional photographers?

    No! This course is perfect for both professional photographers, and really anyone who's interested in learning how to do their own photos. I've taught photographers who do this full time, as well as mamas who simply want to document moments with their little ones. The course is open to all and the content is easy to understand no matter what your level of experience is.

  • Can't I just google how to do photos?

    I'm sure you could find a lot of different methods online when it comes to doing self-portraits. It actually took me over three years to really test different things and find a way that was fool-proof and although you could easily find bits and pieces that work, it really comes down to the whole method of doing self-portraits that I cover in the course. By signing up, you'll know you'll get all the information and can easily follow these steps and get started right away with something that is proven to work.

  • How can I get the most out of this class?

    I put this class together as a way to share what has worked so incredibly well for me, and give you the blueprint to follow. My hope for you is that you take these lessons, learn, and then get out there and start shooting. You'll see right away that with the right settings and gear, doing self portraits is incredibly fun and easy to do!
