Beyond the Pose: the Power & Joy in Capturing Moments that Can’t be Replicated with Kristen Cook
If you are someone who has ever felt bored or stuck in your photography, and that your sessions start to blend together, then this conversation is for you.
I absolutely loved this conversation with Kristen Cook – the incredible Melbourne based photographer known for moving images, filled with emotion & storytelling.
She shares her journey from a posed photographer to a baby-led photographer, then redefined what newborn photography was to her, carving out her own path.
She shares her advice on shooting with intention & connection and getting really curious with yourself on what sparks your joy, as well as the power of having a personal project involving your own children.
This episode is for anyone who has struggled to find their own unique voice, with advice on walking your own path as an artist.
