Twig & Olive In-Person Workshops

Meet with and instructing other photographers in person is one of our favorite things. We’re believers that hands-on education is one of the best things you can do for your business because there’s nothing like being in a room with other people that think and feel the same way as you do.

We conduct these workshops all over the country and have even done many abroad. Each workshop is specially designed for weddings, newborns, or family photography, so choose your own adventure and let’s meet. Interested in having one in your town? Contact us, and we can talk about which workshop would suit you best.

    We used to dread family photo sessions like a trip to the principal’s office.  We did them because our clients wanted them, but they were so… posed and unoriginal and, well…BORING. We knew we had to reinvent them because they are important and because we want to be our client’s photographers for life. The key was mastering how to” unpose.”  We let go of old habits, dialed in our gear in ways we had not before, and BOOM. Unposing our clients meant happy kids hugging us after the sessions and parents loving the process start to finish, not to mention skyrocketing sales.

    Of all the different genres of portrait photography, newborn photography is one of the most rewarding and the most difficult. The fragility of a newborn is matched by the demands of the session, from the safety of the baby to posing and timing.   Again, we come back to the experience you must provide for the clients because the only thing more fragile than a newborn is anxious new parents who want everything to go perfectly.  We are going to lead you through everything you need to make this an amazing experience for them and produce heirloom quality art that they will treasure.

    • Layering sets and how to build them
