Ready to capture emotive, authentic images during your lifestyle newborn sessions with total confidence?

Indoor sessions can be challenging to engage your clients, pose them well, and also create authentic interactions in a small space! Whether it’s rowdy kids, dads who aren’t feeling it, or trying to manage the chaos in general– it’s easy to feel flustered during lifestyle newborn sessions when you don’t know what to do next.

My signature framework, “The Lifestyle Posing Framework,” will help you pose your clients with confidence during your lifestyle newborn sessions, allowing you to take control and capture images that SELL!

Welcome to The Lifestyle Posing Framework

I need this!

Courtney, out of all the material and education I have spent money on, your courses, hands down, run circles around others. You have a tremendous gift of teaching in a straight forward, clear and concise manner, that makes the content immediately applicable to my work. This week, in fact, a friend said, "Your work has always been good, but it seems like it is just getting better and better." I credit all of that to you and your courses and I cannot thank you enough for putting the information out there, but continuously supporting us in the Facebook group, long after the course was purchased. This demonstrates a level of care and dedication that no other course I have purchased has provided, and I cannot thank you enough for creating a community, not an island of isolation, for photographers. YOU ARE THE BEST!

"Courtney, you are the best!"

I can remember the moment in my early days of business that I realized I NEEDED a solid session flow and posing plan, and it's not one of my proudest moments. It came after some negative feedback from a client who was devastated I missed a KEY combination of her family at her lifestyle newborn session.

I was embarrassed, disappointed, and most of all.. I knew it was on me. The truth was that I was touting myself as a professional photographer... but I really had no idea what I was doing session to session. 

After that negative feedback, I worked diligently to make sure it NEVER happened again...I've not missed a key shot since. 

"I don't know what to do with my hands..."

And that's exactly what you'll learn in the lifestyle posing framework

The Lifestyle Lighting Framework is a complete guide to natural and artificial light for on location lifestyle sessions! This course teaches you my proven framework for conquering natural light, and making flash look JUST like natural light when you need to create your own light source.


In this module, we will break down the 5 foundaitonal pillars of posing. These are foundational principles that pave the path to learning the reasoning behind a well thought out session workflow, and the incredible impact it can have on your images and your client experience.

In this jam-packed module, I'll teach you my signature session workflow - a repeatable workflow you can bring to every single session. We'll cover everything from the pose set ups, prompting for authentic connection and engagement for each member of the family, creating variety within your poses to maximize results, but minimize disturbing movement that startles baby, and the keys to figure flattering posing.

Posing is so much more than telling people where to stand and where to look. It is the FOUNDATION for your client’s experience during their session. It’s a way to demonstrate your professionalism, and make them feel amazing in front of the camera. It’s how you keep them comfortable and confident in front of the camera. Posing is the basis for creating genuine connection within the family you are working with so that it translates to the images you capture and deliver.

You have to get it right.

Frequently Asked Questions

I only work in client's homes, but I see you have studio images in your examples. Will this still work for me!

Absolutely! I work on location and in the studio, and I use the EXACT same posing framework regardless of WHERE the session takes place. The only difference - the background. If you look closely, you'll notice that even though some images are in studio, and some are in a clients home - the pose is exactly the same.

How long will it take me to work through the course materials? I need help NOW!

When you enroll in the course you have immediate and LIFETIME access to the course materials. MOST of our students complete the coursework within one week and are able to jump right in and implement the methods laid out in the framework immediately. 

I’d love to join but am worried about what to do if I have questions about the course materials, can I work with you 1x1? 

I do not offer 1x1 mentorship at this time, BUT I am extremely active in our course community facebook group and am constantly answering questions there!

Do you cover posed newborn shots on the posing beanbag?

No! I do not cover posed newborn shots using a beanbag. My philosophy for lifestyle newborn sessions is to capture baby as naturally as possible. I'll show you how I get a ton of variety in images of baby alone using parent's arms and the features of a home!
