    Shannon Squires-Toews

    Yes, It Pays to Do Children's Fine Art Photography!

    Dazzle parents beyond the Portrait mode on their cell phone, and show them the generation-lasting power of a fine art portrait of their child and family.

    How do we get parents to see the ‘greater good’ of professional fine art photography for their children and their families? How do we help them see the value as more than dollars and cents?

    Shannon will outline her approach to her craft, and then expand to show us how during her workshop the following day.


    We begin at 7:00 p.m. CST
