I get lots of messages from new photographers, asking how I get relaxed pictures of couples. So I am launching my couples "non-posing" sessions. I say non-posing but obviously there is a knack and some skill to getting these images as people will need prompting and directing.
In these coaching sessions I will do a live shoot with a real couple to show how I shoot and direct people. Followed by an opportunity to shoot alongside me and then on your own or in pairs (depending of how large a group attends).
While shooting you can ask me anything.
Always outdoors, whatever the weather and always in Norfolk. Will last up to 3 hours.
Posing session dates as follows:
FURTHER DATES TO BE ARRANGED - CURRENTLY ON HOLD DUE TO A BUSY WEDDING SEASON
THE MAIN FOCUS BEING ON MOVEMENT AND KEEPING PEOPLE RELAXED - WITH THE AIM OF OFFERING COUPLES AN EXPERIENCE NOT JUST A PHOTOSHOOT.
Please note this will NOT be a wedding shoot / styled shoot. This is couples content.
Ideal for new photographers, wanting to build confidence and a portfolio. Or for any photographer wanting to brush up on their prompting skills and create new content.
Images taken by attendees can be used on their social media and websites if they so desire.
Shooting with no props and no fancy equipment - just bring your camera.
To be added to my early bird waiting list please complete the form below and I will contact you when my next date is available.
(Price will depend on if I am using props such as smoke bombs or a stylist and depending on the cost of the models).

Shell was great! She showed us how she interacts with the couple and gives them nice and easy to follow prompts. I really enjoyed myself and was so happy to receive a little card with all the prompts on after the session. It was also nice to have a go at practicing some posing in pairs.

Being quite new to the photography business, I needed some confidence posing couples naturally & god did I get it! The next day I went off on my own with a couple I had never met & my feedback was UNREAL. The photos are great & they have booked me for a maternity shoot. So if you need a bit more confidence, I 1000% recommend.

I attended a couples non posing session with Shell. It was a really fantastic afternoon & great to only see how Shell works but also a brilliant opportunity to network with other photographers. The weather wasn't the best but we got through it and it made for a fun shoot. I got some shots I'm really happy with which I can use on my social media and website. This session has really boosted my confidence when posing couples. I highly recommend attending one & I will looking to do so again in the future.

Wow! Where do I start. This was the first workshop that I had ever attended and although I am super confident & a chatty person, turning up knowing nobody was a little daunting! Straight away Shell made me feel completely at ease & was just really 'Real' with us all which created the most amazing, supportive, safe & friendly atmosphere. Shell allowed us to watch as she worked, posing & encouraging the couple to create movement, the whole time sharing loads of tips with us all. It was AMAZING, I learnt so much! The photographs that I captured have boosted my portfolio & from those images, I have booked a 2023 wedding!!! WOW!

"I attended the couples posing session (in April) and had the best afternoon surrounded by other amazing & supportive photographers. Everyone was more than happy to help each other & Shell was the best mentor. She keeps it fun and informative & I learnt how to prompt couples during a shoot. She also gave us lots of little tips and tricks that I would never have thought of, to make the shoot run smoothly. I would highly recommend attending one of these sessions. I want to do it all over again"
