KIDS PHOTOGRAPHY CLASS

Super excited to be offering another class in the FALL! Early bird pricing until Aug 1. Class will be limited to just 10 students, please send an email to info@sarahaynesphotography.com to book your spot!

Here’s what people are saying:

“I wanted to let you know that my daughter loved the photography class. The first day when I picked her up she said, “I didn’t think I would learn anything but I actually learnt a lot!” Other people have commented that she seems very knowledgeable. She has been inspired to take plenty of pictures and has taken her homework to heart. She has been sharing what she has learned with the rest of us.” ~ Laura

“Hi Sara. It was great meeting you in person today. I just wanted to thank you for being so wonderful with Maya and Noah today. They LOVED every minute of their time with you and came home with so much excitement and love for the camera in their hands. Please let us know if you decide to do a more advanced course in the future.” ~ Lamis

“My daughter is having lots of fun and learning with such enthusiasm, all thanks to your teaching and encouragement. I am grateful that we took the class, and I love the props you gave to them so far. The price is so, so worthwhile!” ~ Alina

MOMS PHOTOGRAPHY CLASS 

One of the things I love most about being a photographer is being able to share with other moms.
Having four kids myself, I know how quickly time slips away from us. And I know how valuable these images of your kids are as they grow up.

Getting family pictures done by a professional is awesome. It’s important, valuable and NECESSARY to get ALL of you together, but what about all those other moments you share together as a family? Birthday parties and sports events and summer vacations? What about all the everyday joys you witness in your kids?
Maybe you have a fancy camera and are still struggling with all the different settings.
Or maybe you want to learn to see more creatively.
Whatever the case, I am so honored to help you capture your own story better.

This class is designed especially for Moms who have a fancy camera and have no idea how to use it.  It’s also for you if you love taking pictures and would like some tips on how to better document the joy that is your family. To be able to better capture all those little moments that make up the beauty of your family. The Everyday Joys. The kids jumping in the fall leaves. Family pizza night. His grin with his missing teeth. Her twirling in her tutu. All the little moments you’ll want to remember forever!

In the first half of the class we will cover the basic settings of your camera (all those confusing terms- aperture, ISO, shutter speed) and how to use them all together. We’ll talk about light and how to capture it beautifully. What time of day is best for pictures, how to capture sun-flare, where in your home you should try to shoot from… etc. We’ll cover composition, lenses and a few other technical topics.

The second part of the class will cover how to better capture your own family. Tips on how to get real, authentic pictures of your little loves. Ideas on how to engage your kids (at any age). With four kids myself I know the challenges of getting a decent shot with all of them together, I’ve got a few tricks up my sleeve that will really help get those “money” shots.
And most importantly we will go over a few ideas to help change the way you document your family.  This is where you will grow from taking just a snapshot, to really capturing the moment.

You DO NOT need to have a fancy DSLR camera to attend (although it will be helpful for the camera settings part of the course)

Here’s what people are saying:

Thanks so much! Super informative. Loved that you had examples of pictures to explain what you were talking about. I enjoyed it all.
Jenny

I loved the tricks, personal opinion (since you are in a similar position to me – busy mom, wanting to tell your story etc) I value what you have already researched & tried & found to be ideal.  I would much rather take a class in this comfortable setting (girls’ night out), to be able to ask my questions without condescension & to have the instructor be on the same page re: what I really want to accomplish thru my picture taking & helping me to get there in the simplest way…I felt so at home & enjoyed myself in the process. Now it get out and put it all to practice!
Deonne

I loved both the technical and creative sides of this class! I’m going to try out a lot of the creative ideas we talked about!
