I’ve been waiting to write this post for five months!
Last fall, I was approached by photographer, Jesh De Rox, about consulting him in the content design of an entire online course that teaches the Beloved genre of photography.
Its been quite the adventure to see things unfold the last several months and I’m thrilled with the final product. The course(s) are designed similar to my own–with pre-recorded video lessons and live footage of real photo sessions to demonstrate the content. This makes the course easily assessable for any time zone or schedule.
As if I wasn’t already converted to the Beloved genre, being a part of the creation of the course and watching the evolution of what it has become, I’m even more passionately convinced that this approach has the ability to change lives and make a difference in the world and now everyone can learn how to make it happen with the accompaniment of this incredible online course!
Beloved was originally conceived as a wonderful approach to photographing couples, but it has quickly spread into an incredible tool to use with families and children. The Beloved Family Field Guide is also being released this week, making this entire approach now easily integrated for family photography sessions.
If Beloved is a new word for you, here is a brief explanation of what Beloved is, in Jesh’s words:
“Beloved is an emerging photographic genre centered on the creation of meaning-rich portraits that express the individual, beautiful personality each person is born with, creating an opportunity to celebrate the relationships that fill our lives with joy and purpose.
The Photogenic Technique of Beloved gives photographers a clear and simple way to move past the “camera smile”‘ to easily capture the authentic, photogenic expressions and the naturally beautiful sides of our personality we share with our loved ones.”
Imagine what life would be like if every person you photographed was photogenic. If each session wasn’t just about getting your picture taken, but it was an enriching and joyful experience where relationships are strengthened. Where fun, laughter, and play is a natural and free flowing experience. Where the images you capture are beautifully authentic and clients are drawn to you not just because of your images but because of how you helped them feel during the experience?
Beloved is the final missing piece to the puzzle.
