A beginner’s course for parents


I remember the first serious camera I picked up. It was overwhelming and frustrating. I knew what a good image looked like, but I didn’t want to spend hours wadding through tutorials and youtube clips to teach me what I wanted to know. I felt the guilt of seeing great moments in my children’s lives go by and I only had poor images to remember them by. I want to help you avoid this feeling. I want to give you the skills and confidence to pick up that camera and actually know how to get beautiful results.

If you struggle with exposure, lighting, composition, and editing, this course is for you.
