Beginner’s Photography Class

I remember holding a DSLR in my hands for the first time and having NO idea how to use it. I took hundreds, maybe thousands of photos, just trying to practice and learn. However, practicing didn’t do me any good when I was shooting everything with an automatic exposure… as if all you had to know how to do was turn a dial and select a “scene” on your camera.
.
I decided to teach myself, and after years of studying my manual, I attended a couple of workshops, where I finally gained the confidence to take photos I was proud to display.
.
Maybe this is where you are… maybe you are practicing and not seeing improvement. Maybe you’ve been reading your camera manual or online forums, desperately hoping to find answers and see a change.
.

.
I am putting together a workshop in hopes of teaching you how to use your camera and create beautiful images. It will be a 4-5 hour class, including some hands-on shooting with real people and the opportunity to ask any questions you come up with! (something that you can’t do when studying the manual!) We’ll cover the ins and outs of how your camera works, as well as how to nail lighting and exposure, focusing and how to avoid blurry images, etc.
.
I have professionally shot weddings for over six years, but now that I’m a momma, I’m taking a break from that world. Having my sweet girl has made me realize how incredibly important it is to be able to snap quality, beautiful photos day-to-day. I am so thankful that I am able to do this and to do it well – the skills I have from my photography business are a gift, and to be able to have beautiful snapshots of my girl that I am proud to display in my home is an even greater gift. That is my motivation for this class – to share this gift with you.
.
The workshop size will be limited, so registration will close once it is full.
If you are wanting to learn how to expose your photos in-camera (and how to avoid “needing” Photoshop to fix everything), learn how to avoid blurry, out-of-focus images, avoid a sterile, intimidating classroom setting and come hang out in a comfy, cozy environment, and get hands-on learning as we practice on an amazing model (and maybe even a super cute baby), then sign up here!

  • I realize it’s weird to complain about social media ON SOCIAL MEDIA, but welcome to 2019 where this is what we do. I deleted this app from my phone for a 3-day weekend, and it was THE BEST. I think it might become a regular thing, we’ll see. In the meantime, know that I have the cutest one-year-old on my blog right now, AND I’M OBSESSED. ❤️

  • I felt you. You were a pea. Then a lemon. Then an eggplant. I followed advice. I read 12 books. I quit coffee.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Could you tell I was scared?
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I talked to you, sang to you … I wasn't ready.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
But then you were here. Ten toes. Eight pounds. Love. Big fat love.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I held you. I fed you. I realized that I would spend my life doing things to make you happy—and that that would make me happy.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And then there are the times I want to give up. You've made me rethink my sanity. You've made me want to fall on my mother's feet and tell her that I get it.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
But then you smile, and you say my name—and you grab my hand with those little fingers.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We're growing. Together. We are seeing the world like it's new. I will open my heart, and love will rain down all over you. You'll giggle, and I'll do it all over again. And we will walk hand in hand. Until you let go.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I made you, but you made me a mother.🖤
