Mitch + Aly beloved session

A couple of months ago I attended my first ever Jesh de Rox: {Life as an Artform} workshop….. and it won’t be my last! My mind still melts when I try to remember everything I learned on these 3 days. Really amazing stuff! I met some unreal people that I’ll be friends with for a long time to come.

More than just a photography workshop, Jesh taught us how to be better in life (workshop name is a dead giveaway). If you can be the best version of yourself that you can, there’s no telling what you could be capable of. If I can put into practice just a fraction of what Jesh taught me then my family, my photography, my business and my clients will reap the sweet rewards!

The workshop wasn’t all big picture, there was also some photography stuff throw in there too. In particular Jesh taught us about the Beloved technique. Beloved is whole new style of photography that involves people in love; couples, families….anyone! It’s a move away from tradition photo shoots that are filled with awkward posing, fake smiles, and all the things that people generally loathe which results in a fairly unpleasant experience. Beloved is different. It’s an experience in itself and it’s a way of interacting with your loved ones in a fun and beautiful way, with a photographer there to capture those moments.

All the love, joy and emotion in the images from a beloved session come from natural interactions and expression. It’s not fabricated, it already lives in you. The beloved session is just a way to bring it out.

This is my first attempt at using some beloved techniques in a session. Mitch and Aly were fantastic to photograph. They trusted me and really let themselves be immersed in the beloved session. We ran way over time, but we were all enjoying it so much that it didn’t matter.

Thanks Mitch and Aly, I really hope you love these.

    Chad + Renee Beloved Maternity » Scott Surplice » Sydney - […] My great friends Chad and Renee were heavily pregnant back in Jan so it was the perfect time to get a few photos in before the baby arrived. It also gave me the chance to practice the beloved technique that I mentioned back on Mitch and Aly’s post. […]ReplyCancel
