What you'll learn

Photography is part technical, part creative. Using simple language and plenty of illustrative examples, we cover a wonderful variety of topics which will help you get better pictures of your family. Camera settings and "how-to" guides are included for the different scenarios you will practice. 

 

Discover how to use your camera to take your photos from boring to beautiful. These pictures were taken just seconds apart with the same camera and same lens. Practice techniques that will dramatically improve your photography using the camera you already have. 

 

Your teachers

Amy Tripple and Heidi Peters are award-winning photographers. Their work has appeared in Parents Magazine, US Weekly, People, The Chicago Tribune and Professional Photographer Magazine. They created Shoot Along to give themselves structure and accountability to capture their own families and decided it would be a great concept to share with other parents.

What began as a personal project has grown into a friendly and rewarding passion, offering support and instruction to parents on six continents. The goal of Shoot Along is to give parents the tools they need to document their families through photography.

Over 4,000 parents have taken part in Shoot Along since it started in 2014. 

Your moderators

A subscription to Shoot Along includes access to a private Facebook group where participants share images and give positive feedback. It's also a place to get answers to specific questions about taking pictures. The group is overseen by two fabulous professionals who love to share their passion for photography.

 
 Rebecca is a photographer, mother, wife, and ex-pat Aussie living in Chicago.  Like so many others, her love of photography began with the birth of her son, and she sought to capture and preserve her family's memories as her son grew and changed.  In 2012, Rebecca began photographing others and her business has steadily grown and flourished ever since.

It’s been fun to see my work progress from what I thought was “pretty good” into something that continues to get better and better. I now have a collection of beautiful photos of my family that I’ll cherish forever!
— John
The project has allowed me to capture experiences of my family that tells a story of who we are. From looking at lighting differently to seeing my everyday surroundings.
— Jen
It has been a great frequent reminder to get out and shoot pictures of my own kids, which (as someone who does family photography part-time) I sometimes forget to do.
— Jenn
I feel like I have such a better understanding of what goes into making a great image, from the basics of focus and composition to more artistic elements such as framing and color and texture.
