Memories That Bring Them Back: Imagine giving your clients something so precious that it brings a tear to their eyes when they see it. That's the magic of family videos. They're not just keepsakes; they're emotional time capsules that capture the laughter, the hugs, the unspoken love. When your clients see these moments brought to life, they'll be more than just happy—they'll be deeply moved. This emotional connection not only brings them back to you for more captured memories but also inspires them to share your name with everyone they know.

What Will I Learn in This Course?

You'll start out learning the basics of video and an explanation of the settings. You'll see hand-held stabilization techniques and camera movements, as well as some different ways to deal with lighting when shooting video. I walk you through how exactly to craft a beautiful story with your footage.

Next, you'll learn tips for working with clients (how to prep them, behavior during your session, etc), some different options for video delivery, how to price your videos and some changes you should make to your contract. Next I'll give you ideas for building a portfolio, and lots of marketing tips so your clients will be excited to try out your newest offer.

Then you'll get to watch the complete behind the scenes video of me simultaneously taking photos and videos at a session. If you love watching the action unfold, this is for you.

Lastly, you'll learn all about editing your video clips to turn them into a beautiful family film.

What Editing Programs Are Covered?

I'll walk you through the editing process in Premiere Pro, and in a dedicated module, I'll demonstrate how to seamlessly apply that knowledge to iMovie. The fundamental concepts taught are applicable across various editing programs, making the skills easily transferable to the editing software of your choice.

Editing is often the most intimidating part

(I know that was my biggest barrier to getting started with video)

so I break it down into easy steps and show you how to edit a video in real time.

You'll learn how to make a family film like the one below:

"This is the best online course I have ever taken. Becca is a gifted teacher and a brilliant photographer-videographer, but my favorite thing about this course is that it feels like spending time with a friend. She shares every step of her own videography process —in detail —and provides specific actionable steps so that I left the course feeling not only like I CAN DO IT, but also I’m EXCITED to do it! If you’ve wanted to try videography but are intimidated by Adobe Premiere or have tried shooting video but it just doesn’t look professional, this course is what you need. I’m going to tell everyone who even mentions wanting to learn videography. I feel lucky I found this course!"

"So much of the value is found in Becca’s teaching style and hearing her thought process as she makes decisions during editing. I was especially pleased with how she explained techniques, demonstrated them, and then showed examples where she used a particular technique in a video. I’m leaving this course feeling like I have the tools to thrive at creating videos and adding value to my client’s experience and my business."

"I've been photographing families for years now and one thing that has always been on my heart to try was producing family films! I have tried a few times to research or watch YouTube to help me get started, but it was so overwhelming! There is simply so much to learn that I was lost on where to even begin. Becca's education has always been top notch, so when I heard she created a course on producing family films, I knew I had to take it. This course is not only completely chocked full of helpful information, but it walks you through each step in the process from beginning to end. Becca is such a fantastic teacher and has literally thought of everything! I started this course shaky at best and now I can't wait to get going! I feel fully equipped to start practicing now so that soon I can start creating and offering beautiful family films for my own clients. If you are on the fence about this course, this is your sign to just go for it. You will not regret it!"

Payment Options

"I have been a student of Becca for years now and I truly can appreciate all her work put into all her courses. They are simplified enough to understand each step and not as intimidating as you would think. About 9 months ago, Becca mentored me on how to create family films. Since then my films have been such a special piece to offer clients and a boost in my sales. She's down to earth and so easy to understand. I had the opportunity to beta test this course and I even learned some new tips and tricks!!! She shares it all, no secrets in her courses. I know as a photographer it can be hard to invest in so many courses but if you’re really wanting to take your business to another level invest in this one!!"
