Giveaway and Review: The Key to Natural Posing eBook (CLOSED)

This giveaway is now CLOSED.

About a year and a half ago I was introduced to Katie Evans' first photography book The Key to Taking Pictures Like a Professional Photographer (you can read my review of that book HERE). It changed my life. Seriously. The book has had an unbelievable impact on how I capture life's important (and not so important) moments. I now feel very confident in my photography skills, and I have Katie and her book (and lots of practice) to thank for that. So when Katie contacted me a couple months ago and asked if I would review her newest photography eBook, The Key to Natural Posing, I didn't hesitate to say yes.


The Key to Natural Posing is a great guide. Katie includes tons of sample shots and the information she shares is so thorough and detailed. The book is 99 pages of valuable information on a wide range of subjects... photographing newborns, babies and toddlers, kids, high school seniors, couples, families, and large groups. My favorite chapter is the newborns. Oh how I wish I had this book when I had newborns to take pictures of! Katie has fantastic, easy ideas for getting those perfect, super-sweet photos. She also includes great tips on getting kids to open up in front of the camera. As Katie says in the book "... posing is not necessarily about telling your subject exactly how to stand and how far to tilt your head to the right. Natural posing is about knowing how to interact with and what to say to your subject(s) in order to get them in the right frame of mind so that they essentially pose themselves."

Katie has hit another home run with her latest book, and I can't wait to use some of her tips when I'm trying to get great Christmas card photos of my girls this year. Want a sneak peek of the eBook? Here are a few sample pages...

Make sure you visit Katie's blog and Facebook page for even more photography info, tips, and ideas.

Now, would you like the chance to win a free copy of Katie's eBook The Key to Natural Posing? Well, guess what? Katie has graciously agreed to give away not one, not two, but three copies! That means three of you will win a copy of the eBook. Woohoo! Here's the lowdown on entering...

I love taking pictures of my 3 kids. They are active and fun, and really let their personalities show.

I have two beautiful granddaughters I love to take photos of, as well as my own kids and all family.

It looks like a great book! I enjoy taking pictures of my family! There's always lots of laughter in our "gatherings", so photos usually turn out pretty funny.

Alexandra Abarca said...

I mostly take pictures of my three little granddaughters, but I'm not thrilled with my results, just with the memories the photos bring. So I would love to win this e-book

Lovely Light said...

Right now, I take lots of pics of my two dogs, sometimes my hubby :) But now, with a baby on the way, I'm pretty sure that's gonna change!

Karen Smith said...

I LOVE to take pictures of my hubby, the kids and, of course, our pug!
What a great giveaway! Thank you!

KateSmr said...

What a lovely & useful book. I love taking pictures of my kids although getting them both to 'pose' for a photo can be time consuming :-p

Nati said...

My favourite person is my husband, he hates pictures so he never poses and makes it very interesting for me. Thanks for the chance to win

Gwen said...

My favorite people to photograph are my kids... but my older daughter is definitely my favorite because she's the only one that doesn't have brown eyes, and the color of hers changes.

Michele Pacey said...

My favourite people to take pictures of are my kids of course (the standard answer probably). But I could really use this book because I really really must learn more and get better at it. So ya, pick me!!!

Amy at Ameroonie Designs said...

Definitely my kids are my favorite, and I am terrible at getting great shots- I really could use this book!

Jonie Marie said...

I am always taking photos of my girls, but could use some help in the posing department. I would love to win!

Photography is at the waaayyy bottom of my list of skills. I'd love to get better before my wonderful 2yr old nephew (and his parents) visits in February. Little ones make the best subjects!

Jennifer said...

Of course, my kids! They are so funny.

Jennifer said...

Did I mention that when my 2yo steals my point n shoot, she takes better pics than I do! Need this book!
