Duration: 2 weeks


Learn to capture the countless “priceless moments” of youth (a.k.a. teenage blackmail) with a course devoted to photographing little ones! From newborn to elementary school, kids can be one of the toughest subjects for a photographer and we’re here to change that. This mini course will share professional tips and tricks on natural posing and getting genuine smiles. In just minutes, we’ll show you how to turn a disaster into a priceless moment, no matter the child’s age.

*Bonus: This class is included free when you purchase our 4-week Photo 102 class!

PLEASE NOTE: Homework assignments will require you to photograph a baby or babies (newborn to toddler) the first week of class and a child or children (toddlers to teens) during the second week. Please make sure you have access to children of these ages during the time period of the class in order to fully complete the course work.


Our platform has recently changed. We are excited that this new platform will bring us a better learning system, which is available online through your browser and it’s mobile friendly!

We are no longer offering set course dates. Instead, you will receive a link to view your class within 24 hours of your purchase. Now, you can begin your class almost immediately or whenever the time is right for you!
Learning is divided into 4 weeks and within those weeks you can learn at your own pace, anytime, anywhere. There are no set class times during the week, though homework is due every Sunday night for instructor feedback, if you choose to participate in that portion of the class. Students also have unlimited email access to the instructor for the duration of their course, to ask questions or get help when they’re stuck. Our classes are flexible, fit into most any schedule and you have extended access to the course material after the class is over! This allows you to reference back to things later when you need a memory refresher.
*It’s important to note that your 4 weeks of teacher access begin once you start watching the first video of Week 1 content. So be sure to start that first video when you’re ready to learn!


Babies & Children has no prerequisite courses. But please note that lighting and manual camera exposures will not be covered in this course. To learn more about shooting with manual settings and exposures, please take our Photo 101 course first. Additionally, as noted above, please keep in mind homework assignments will require you to organize photo shoots with babies, toddlers and kids during the class.
