I've heard it time and time again. "I have a nice camera, but I don't know how to use it." Or, "I only know how to use my camera in automatic mode." And mamas, I get it. A DSLR camera is overwhelming. So many different modes, buttons and features... how do you know what to use and when? That's where I can help.

I teach mamas both one-on-one and in group settings how to use their DSLR or mirrorless cameras to capture more artful pictures of their children. I have developed a set of lessons and tips that will help you in using your camera in the most ideal way, and also allow you to take the guesswork out of where to put your subject in the frame, how to capture a story of a day or moment that evokes emotion and meaning, and what to do with all the beautiful photographs you capture. We’ll cover topics like lighting, composition, file organization and basic editing, and have you on your way to feeling more confident in using your camera to capture your days, and tell your family story.
