2015 Halloween Mini Sessions!

Thank you so much for your interest in the 2015 Halloween Mini Sessions to benefit Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep (NILMDTS). There is no charge for the event, but Expressions and beCAUSE are asking for a donation to NILMDTS in honor of all of the little angels we’ve lost too soon. I will provide one digital image for each child and those images will be placed in one, large gallery with all of the other participants’ photos. You will be given access to that gallery and will be able to download the file of your child’s image and a print release. Each family will be assigned a 10-minute time slot to be photographed unless there is more than three children in the family. For families with 4 or more children to be photographed, we will assign you a larger time slot. It is imperative that you arrive during your assigned time slot, as there will be many, many children filtering through the studio that day and we likely won’t be able to accommodate late arrivals. When you arrive at the studio, you will fill out the donation paperwork and will either give one of my assistants cash, or a check made out to NILMDTS.

NILMDTS is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization and serves families who experience a stillbirth or whose child is not expected to live very long. Since it’s conception, NILMDTS has served thousands of families worldwide. These families receive professional portraiture by certified, professional photographers like myself, at no charge to them. We provide each family with custom, heirloom portraiture to help them remember their beautiful child and to honor that child’s legacy. All donations are tax-deductible and are used to continue the organization’s mission. Please visit NILMDTS.ORG for more information.

If you would like to reserve a spot for these sessions, please visit http://www.expressionsbylisagupton.com/2015-halloween-mini-sessions-nilmdts-benefit/ and complete the booking form. You will select your time on page 2 of the form and will receive a copy of the contract via email upon completion. Sessions are available first-come-first-serve, so if the time you select returns as unavailable, it has already been claimed by another participant.

Thank you again for your interest and support of these benefit sessions.
I hope to see you soon!

Oh BABY!! Big Announcements here at Expressions by Lisa Gupton! Bloomington Indiana Maternity Newborn Photographer

It’s not very often that I get the incredible opportunity to find out about a pregnancy before a family announces to the public, so I was SUPER excited when I was contacted to shoot this announcement! And bonus! I got to play with a super sweet doggy that is very excited to welcome her brand new baby Sister or Brother in March! So, congratulations Mathies family! I can’t wait to meet your beautiful baby and photograph him or her over the next year in my Grow-with-Me plan! This is so exciting! Thank you for letting me be a little part of the excitement!

Without further ado:

Let’s Click: Moms with Cameras Workshop

Are you tired of feeling like THIS when you pick up your camera?!



You know who you are…

The one that was gifted (or maybe even bought it for yourself!) a super nice camera and you haven’t moved it out of auto.  

The one who complains about all your pictures being too dark, too bright, too blurry or all the wrong colors.  

Are you sick of trying to read your manual to figure out what all of those knobs do and why that flash makes your kids look like scary-eyed ghosts?!  Are you tired of missing precious moments in your kids’ lives because you simply can’t figure out this big clunk of metal?  

It’s time to get your money’s worth from that beautiful camera that just sits on the shelf.  I am here to rescue you from your frustration (and your husband’s glares).   😉


Here is a sampling of what we will be going over:

  • Program, Shutter Priority, Aperture Priority and Manual Modes
  • Shutter Speed, Aperture and ISO:  What the heck does that mean and how do I use it to take a better photo?
  • How to look for natural light and take advantage of it
  • How to focus on and frame your subject 
  • How to nail the image in camera so that you don’t need to edit


This workshop is limited to only SIX attendee spots.  I want everyone to feel comfortable and to have a chance to participate 1-on-1.  So grab your “nice camera” and sign up for this amazing workshop.  It’s going to be 5 hours of fun–full of great information!


WHEN:  May 17, 2014 from 10 a.m. – 3 p.m.   OR  June 21, 2014 from 10 a.m. – 3 p.m.

WHERE:  My studio in Bloomington, IN

HOW MUCH:  A fantastic introductory price of $150 for the day, which includes the workshop, lunch, snacks, an info packet for you to take home, a quick reference guide,  AND a swag bag with a custom camera strap, a gift certificate and some great coupons.  

PAYMENT:  Only a $75 retainer is required now to hold your spot and then the remaining balance is due the day of the workshop.


  • 10-12:30:  We will be going over camera functions, composition, white balance, tips and tricks
  • 12:30-1:00:  Lunch (provided)
  • 1-2:30:  We will shoot 2-3 models in my natural light studio and outside, weather permitting
  • 2:30-3:  Questions and review

WHAT YOU NEED:  A DSLR Camera (any brand is fine) and a lens.  I highly recommend a 50mm 1.8, which is about $100, but you can absolutely take this workshop with the kit lens that came with your camera.

Don’t miss out on this incredible opportunity!  Take this time for you…  so that you can preserve memories of your family the way you want to. 


Please email me at Lisa@ExpressionsbyLisaGupton.com to reserve your spot.


DISCLAIMER:  This workshop is NOT for professionals or anyone interested in starting a business (a non-compete contract will be required for participants).  This workshop is for Moms (or Dads) who simply want to preserve memories of their kids and to learn how to use their cameras.  I will not be teaching any posing, editing or business aspects.  :-)
