Family Photography Made Easy (and Fun!)

This talk will cover a variety of topics such as how to take better photos with your phone, easy ways to display and print your photos (including the use of apps) and how to capture candid moments and avoid “cheesy” smiles. Feel free to bring along your camera and any questions, as there will be time for Q&A. Kira is a family and newborn photographer who loves to capture authentic connections. She is obsessed with beautiful light, candid moments and creative perspectives. Her photography style is Lifestyle, which is a hybrid between documentary photography and more classic portraiture. When she is not taking pictures, you can find her chasing after her two rambunctious (but cute) kids, exploring her neighbourhood of Leslieville in Toronto, or dreaming about a lazy summer afternoon at the family cottage. https://www.kiranoelphotography.com/
