By request, I'm working on a new tutorial for the blog with tips for shooting indoors. I LOVE shooting indoors and it's where I've created some of my most favourite images. But I know it can be challenging at times, especially if you're working in clients' homes. So, what can we help with you in the tutorial? What do you find most challenging about shooting indoors? Comment below or send us a DM and look out for the new tutorial soon! -Jenny⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ . ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #unscriptedmentoring #clickinmoms #cameramama #photography #nikon #learningphotography #lifestylephotography #familyphotography #documentaryphotography #photographyblog #photographyexercise #photographybusiness #photographymentoring #fearlessandframed #inbeautyandchaos #pixel_kids #newbornphotography #bnw_magic #thefamilynarrative #hellostoryteller #indoorphotography

Let's talk about gear today! Do you have a fear of new gear? 🤔 When I first started in photography I was shooting with a Nikon D3000 - a SUPER entry-level DSLR where ISO 3000 was basically a total grain storm. I didn't have the funds to upgrade and so I shot with that little camera for years and knew it INSIDE AND OUT. I felt like I became a better photographer because I learned how to work a scene so well as I didn't have the option to increase ISO so I had to work the light to the best of my ability. Eventually, I realized I'd outgrown my gear, but I was so hesitant to upgrade as I thought I'd lose my edge. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Would I try less since I'd have more capabilities? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I put off the purchase for months and months. Eventually, I did upgrade to a D700 and had a whole new world of shooting options open to me. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Did it make me less of a photographer? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ No. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The skills I had were still there and with new gear I became better at different skills - such as purposely underexposing and bringing up in post-production, which was never an option with my old camera. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Since then I've upgraded a few more times, but each time that fear re-enters my brain. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ So, I'm curious if you feel the same way? Or do you buy new gear and let it sit in the box because it's intimidating? Or have you ever downgraded gear? Sound off below! - Kelly #unscriptedmentoring⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #learnphotography #nikon #canon #fujifilm #candidchildhood #kidsofinstagram #pixel_kids #cameramama #shamoftheperfect #clickinmoms #documentyourdays

Do you ever catch little glimpses of your life now and see exactly what it's going to be like in 10 years? This morning was one of those moments for me. I walked in on this scene while the girls were getting ready for the day and I could so clearly see the 2 of them getting ready for school 10 years from now, fighting for counter space and digging through make-up bags. 😳This is our last un-renovated room in our house and I think it's going to stay like that until the girls leave for college. 😂 .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #documentyourdays #documentaryphotography #candidchildhood #sisters #sisterhood #shamoftheperfect #unscriptedmentoring #pixel_kids

QUICK TIP TUESDAY! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Take the shot, then take another one and make it better than the first. While I'm shooting I constantly have this running through my head. "Make it better, make it better." It's not to say the first one is bad, but how can you improve upon it? Maybe it's moving an inch to the left, maybe it's taking a step back, maybe it's increasing your shutter speed to make sure there's no blur, maybe it's decreasing your shutter speed so that it's properly exposed. Challenge yourself with EACH AND EVERY FRAME to tell a better story and to get it better in camera. Sometimes taking a breath, moving a few steps and trying again can make the world of difference and can completely change your narrative. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ How about you? Anything you repeat over and over again in your head when you shoot? - Kelly #unscriptedmentoring⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #makeportraits #shamoftheperfect #clickinmoms #clickitupanotch #fearlessandframed #documentaryphotography #storytellingphotography #capturelife

QUICK TIP: If you're shooting a maternity session and mom is looking down at her bump, make sure she is not looking directly down at it or she'll end up with multiple chins😬! I always tell my mamas to find a point on the ground to look at it IN FRONT of their bump so their gaze is just over the tummy elongating the neck.🤰🤗 -Jenny⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ . ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #unscriptedmentoring #clickinmoms #cameramama #photography #nikon #learningphotography #lifestylephotography #familyphotography #documentaryphotography #photographyblog #photographyexercise #photographybusiness #photographymentoring #inbeautyandchaos #bnw_magic #maternity #maternityphotography #newborn #newbornphotography #lifestylenewborn #blackandwhitephotography

Photography Quick Tip! 🧐 Using objects in the foreground can be a great way to hide things (like clutter or other people) that you don't want in your frame. Plus, depending on the object, it can add the story you're telling. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Although I generally shoot quite documentary style, I will still move objects around if I need to so that my composition can be stronger. How about you? Do you like to move things around for composition? Any other Honey Nut Cheerio lovers out there? 🍯🐝 It's all I can get this kid to eat! 🙈 - Kelly @cheerios #unscriptedmentoring . . . #clickinmoms #cameramama #cheerios #honeynutcheerios #learnphotography #familyphotography #photographymentoring #documentaryphotography #documentyourdays

QUICK TIP TUESDAY! When there's a lull in a family session (or even when your own kids are over you photographing them), go on a treasure hunt of sorts to see how you can tell the story that kids were once there. Find funny things that they left behind, areas that have seen a toddler tornado or smeary fingerprints and photograph them. It'll help you work on composing detail shots and it will also add to the larger narrative of your session (or personal series). Think about how you can make each photo stand on its own and also how it could be placed beside other images you've taken to enforce the story. #unscriptedmentoring #photographdetails #storytellingphotography #familyphotography

For me the hardest part of running a photography business isn't the business-y stuff at all, in fact I kind of enjoy that stuff and how it gives my creative side a little rest. I've been in business for over five years now, but I still struggle with not being so emotionally attached to client images. It hurts when clients don't love an image as much as I do, or when they leave my favourites behind and choose others that I feel meh about. I do try to remind myself that as long as the client is happy and loves the images they chose, that is all that matters, but when I put so much of myself into making images for them it still hurst a bit. You'd think after five years I would be able to let it go, but I've come to accept that is the nature of running of a creative business and putting myself and my work out there. What about you? What is the hardest part of running your business? -Jenny⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ . ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #unscriptedmentoring #clickinmoms #cameramama #photography #nikon #learningphotography #lifestylephotography #familyphotography #documentaryphotography #photographyblog #photographyexercise #photographybusiness #photographymentoring #fearlessandframed #inbeautyandchaos #pixel_kids #newborn #lifestylenewborn #newbornphotography

This is my 6th year of taking part and photographing the 25 Days of Christmas with my family. Our advent calendar is full of fun holiday activities that we do each day and I document them. At the of the 25 days we're left with amazing holiday memories that I make into a slideshow as well as a photo book for us to enjoy and look back it. The kids love it! As do I, but it can be a bit exhausting, so I've learned to give myself a bit of grace. I don't expect perfection at all! I'm not trying to create a masterpiece and I want to be a part of the activities as well so some days an iPhone snapshot is all that I make and I'm completely okay with that. We also have some days that are quick and easy activities - wear a Christmas hat, read a Christmas book, etc. As well as fun, we also try to give back a little to teach them what Christmas is all about - take part in a giving tree, make cookies for the police station, pack a blessing bag. The memories we've created are so special and I can't image a Christmas now not doing this. Do you have any holiday traditions you document year after year? -Jenny⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ . ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #unscriptedmentoring #clickinmoms #cameramama #photography #nikon #learningphotography #lifestylephotography #familyphotography #documentaryphotography #photographyblog #photographyexercise #photographybusiness #photographymentoring #fearlessandframed #inbeautyandchaos #pixel_kids #christmas #hellostoryteller

Do you have little tricks you use when you're trying to get a photo with the whole family in the frame, but also keep it feeling natural and joyful? 🤔 One of my favourites is to get the parents situated d really close to each other - hips touching is my prompt - and then bring one of the kids over and whisper a challenge in her ear. The challenge is to use only her bum to separate mom and dad. The parents don't have any idea and it always gets good laughs when the kid starts wiggling in there!

I’m a huge lover of black and white images and the way you instantly focus on the story, the emotion and connection in front of you. Want to know what makes a photo a good candidate for converting? We’ve got you covered with a tutorial all about black and whites up on the blog (tap the link in our profile). -Jenny #unscriptedmentoring

QUICK TIP TUESDAY: Don't forget that height can be your friend. When you're shooting a scene you think of all your angles, but many times people forget to get high and look down. Climb on the furniture, bring out a stool (I carry my own to every session), flip out your screen and use live view (if you have it) and remember that the bird's eye view can often show a whole story in one shot. - Kelly #unscriptedmentoring ⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #learnphotography #photographymentoring #newbornphotography #lifestylenewborn #babyphotography #nikon #canon #dslr #newborn #baby #familyphotography #inhomephotography #documentaryphotography

To hood or not to hood? Let’s talk lens hoods...do you use one? Why or why not? I keep mine on my lenses 99% of the time purely for protection. I wear my camera over my shoulder when I’m shooting out and about and bump it (a lot) on all sorts of things. I’d much rather that the hood take a bump than my lens! I can also still get all sorts of flare with it on so for me it’s a no brainier, I’m a hood girl. -Jenny #unscriptedmentoring

Especially in busy family sessions with small kids, those transition moments and the truly candid details are the glue that binds a whole session together. They are the images that probably won’t get blown up and put on the wall but ARE the images that will make mom stop in her tracks 5 years down the road when she realizes how much has changed. So, my quick reminder to you today is to never put that camera down and to ALWAYS be ready to capture the moments that nobody else notices. #unscriptedmentoring #familyphotography #lifestylefamilyphotography

Whether you’re a hobbyist or in business, photography can be all consuming. We’re always trying to learn and better our craft...shoot, edit, share, scroll for inspiration, read and watch tutorials, repeat. You think about photography ALL THE TIME...when the light is hitting your friend’s face at lunch just right and you want to make a picture, when you’re driving and see a beautiful sky and you want to make a picture, when you’re kids are playing together and having a moment and you want to make a picture, when you’re laying in bed and thinking about what you want to learn and shoot the next day. It can start to take over our lives and before you know it, you get burnt out. My advice is take a break every once in a while, whether it’s for a day, a few days or even a few weeks. Put the camera down, refocus your energy on something else you love and get a new perspective. You’ll often find it’s during these ‘breaks’ that you’ll feel most creative so when you pick up the camera again you’re refreshed and ready to smash your goals! -Jenny #unscriptedmentoring

LAST CHANCE to take advantage of the Black Friday Sale!🔥 THE ART OF SELF PORTRAITS, a 39 page e-book jam packed full of our top tips, how to’s, self portrait ideas, before and afters, pull-backs, exercises and tons of inspirational images is ON SALE now for only $9! BUT only until midnight, so be quick and grab your copy now, link in our profile. As a general rule I try to get things right in camera, but with self portraits I give myself a bit of grace, especially with my crops. For this image, I knew going into it I wanted to crop the top of my head out (my hair was being a bit weird!), and I wanted to recreate a similar image I had already taken with just my lips showing (this became a little series for us). But I didn’t think I’d get the crop just right in camera so I shot it wider to give myself a lot of room to play and crop. Scroll left to the see the before. And if you want to see more before and afters and hear about our thought process, as well as a whole lot more about self portraits, grab your copy of THE ART OF SELF PORTRAITS!😊 #unscriptedmentoring

QUICK TIP TUESDAY: We spend a lot of time on the back-end of our website writing blog posts, updating images, moving things around, checking analytics, etc but when was the last time you looked at your website as a potential client would???Speaking from experience where I unknowingly disabled a page from my site and didn’t notice it for over two weeks...and not just any page, but my PORTFOLIO page😱, consider this your PSA...once a week jump onto your website. Spend two minutes making sure it looks okay, everything is loading properly, your links and contact forms are working, and your formatting is all correct. Your website is your first impression to your potential clients so be sure to give it the time it deserves. -Jenny #unscriptedmentoring

I bet you already know that self portraits are a really great way to show your kids that you actually existed.... but...it even goes deeper than that. Self portraits are a way to express yourself. They can be so incredibly empowering and surprisingly enough, can even act as a form of therapy. Self portraits have helped me not only in my photography skills, but they've also helped me work through my emotions. They've forced me to be vulnerable, to be decisive, and to even let my thoughts out of my own head for a while. ⠀ ⠀ But, Jenny and I both know that they can also be SCARY and totally intimidating, which is why we've bottled up everything we've learned from doing our own self portrait projects and have put it all into one place for YOU...to take out the scary and the intimidating, and to instead make the idea of self portraits liberating and exciting. ⠀ ⠀ Along with a few other great specials that we'll announce early next week for Black Friday, we're also going to be launching THE ART OF SELF PORTRAITS e-book. So, stay tuned for all of the details. And if you want an extra discount code, make sure to sign up for either our Business Tips newsletter (link in bio) or our main newsletter (at the bottom of any blog post). #unscriptedmentoring ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀

I’m a family a newborn photographer but I also shoot headshots, take commercial jobs from time to time and sell stock images. Commercial work and headshots may not feed my creative soul, but it does help pay the bills! Having multiple income streams utilising your skills is something I feel all photographers should consider having, especially during the slow season. What about you? Do you have a photography side hustle? Sell prints, stock, shoot a different genre, etc? -Jenny #unscriptedmentoring

Let's talk about editing a full gallery. Do you give your clients a mix of colour and black and white? A full copy of both? Or just colour? I give my clients a mix, which generally ends up being somewhere around 60-70% colour. During our pre-session meeting I tell my clients this and ask if they have a preference between black and white or colour. Then I explain that I edit the image the way I think it will look best and that I use my artistic judgement. If they have a super strong preference I'll definitely honour that, but I also want to ensure I give them the confidence that I'm the artist and will know how their images will look best. Thoughts? - Kelly #unscriptedmentoring ⠀ ⠀

QUICK TIP TUESDAY: If you run a photography business, don’t go crazy and waste your money ordering hundreds and hundreds of marketing materials. It’s usually cheaper to buy in bulk but unless you’re doing big events and handing out heaps at a time, you’ll most definitely want to update your business cards/gift certificates/referral cards/thank you cards/etc before you get through 500 of them! Save yourself some money, and remember less is better than more! #unscriptedmentoring

QUICK TIP TUESDAY!⠀ Even when you're editing black and white, make sure to utilize the Luminance sliders in Lightroom. It can help brighten up/darken certain parts of your image without having to use a brush. I really like to push orange luminance if I want to brighten up faces without increasing exposure on the rest of the image. - Kelly ⠀ #unscriptedmentoring
