The Collection


And An Exciting Announcement!!

filed in:

If there is one thing I love above the off-season, it’s the chance to get things done that I’ve been trying to get done for a whole year!! Today I’m announcing a BRAND NEW FREE MINI-GUIDE DOWNLOAD!! This Mini-Guide has been on my to-do list for quite some time and now it’s READY to give away!! Every photographer draws a blank sometimes when they are posing. It happens to all of us! However, it rarely ever happens to me anymore because of the posing system we created.

I can’t share EVERYTHING we teach about Posing in one Mini-Guide but I CAN give you 15 poses that you can accomplish in 5 minutes! Instead of just showing you pictures of the poses, I actually included what I would say in order to direct my couples into each pose! My hope is that after reading this mini-guide, you’ll have more confidence in your posing and it will show in your very next shoot!!

However, this FREE Mini-Guide Download isn’t the only thing we’re excited to share today!!! We have BIG NEWS! After polling hundreds of photographers in our Consistency Course , we have realized that there is a reoccurring theme in the feedback we’ve been receiving. It has come to our attention that there are a few of you out there who would really benefit from a KJ POSING COURSE!! This is a large part of Day One of our workshop and so we’ve refrained from sharing it online but we think that the time has come to make this education available to ANYONE online!!!

We are SO EXCITED to announce that we’ll be releasing The KJ Posing Course this coming summer!!! This is going to take a while to create. The Consistency Course was the biggest project we’ve ever completed and so the expectations for a Posing Course are extremely HIGH! ….. As they should be. I’m excited, nervous and pumped about this big project!!

It’s going to be here before we know it!!! Not only will you be joining the waiting list but you’ll also be receiving an email with your FREE MINI-GUIDE as well!!!!


Posing is the #1 way to make or break your client’s experience. This is why we’re investing so much time, effort and energy in providing more education and sharing the way we make it happen!! I cannot WAIT for this!!! Enjoy your FREE Mini-Guide and GET EXCITED for this summer!!!!!! AHHH!!!

Jonathan + Melanie Grand Ivory Wedding

Oh, this wedding day!! What a beautiful Texan dream! I met Melanie when she attended one of our workshops years ago in our home. She had the sweetest spirit and such a kindness about her. I remember loving how she made personal marketing her own and did headshots in a pile of Skinny Pop!! I loved her creativity and her ability to envision what she wanted in her brand.


My review of the Canon EOS R6 after shooting a full wedding day is LIVE on Youtube! I was so nervous to use a brand new camera system for full wedding day… I had my Mark IV ready in my bag just in case… but thankfully, I never had to use it! I was really hoping that I would love it and feel comfortable with it….

I’ve been hoping for this day for a very long time…. but I wasn’t sure that it would ever come. That sounds dramatic but let me explain. I LOVE my website company. Showit is incredible and the more I learn about and experience other platforms for hosting and creating custom websites, the more I realize, they aren’t really, truly “custom” at all. Showit is the website design platform for the creative. Hands-down. It’s so powerful, so intuitive and so easy to use. Years ago, Showit created a way to implement a Showit theme onto a Wordpress blog!!! Genius! I couldn’t wait for my blog to be a Showit blog…. but it never happened.
