Adult Beginner Class:
One of the things I love most about being a photographer is being able to share with other moms. Having 4 kids myself, I know how quickly time slips away from us. 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 of those other moments you share together as a family? Birthday parties, sports events and family vacations? What about all the everyday joys you witness in your kids? Maybe you have a fancy camera and are snuggling with the different settings or maybe you want to learn to see more creatively. Whatever the case, I’m so honoured to help you capture your own story better.
In the first half the class we will cover the basic settings of your camera. All of those confusing terms: aperture, ISO, shutter speed and how to use them all together. We will talk about light and how to capture it beautifully, we will talk about what time is best for taking pictures, where in your home you should shoot from. We will cover composition, lenses and a few other technical topics.
The second part of the class will cover how better to capture your own family. Tips on how to get real authentic pictures, ideas on how to engage your kids at any age and most importantly we will go over a few ideas to help you change the way you document your family. This is where you will grow from taking just a snapshot to really capturing the moment.
Details: Home Class – I will bring everything we need for the class and we will have a fun girls night in and learn all together!
Cost: $650 (divide this amongst the women you invite. Up to 10 ladies)

Adult Intermediate Class:
In this intermediate class we will focus completely on the practical application of all the technical info we covered in the beginner class. You will be shooting outside the entire time, practicing what we learned together. You do not need to attend the first class to be able to register for this one, but you will need to know how to shoot on manual. This class will not go into depth technically, so if you are not comfortable with your settings, please consider registering for the beginner class before registering for this one.
Some things we will cover: Focus, review of Exposure, lighting, getting authentic expression and challenging exercises to get you thinking creatively.
