Hello Friends! I have wanted to teach a photography workshop for moms for SO long now! I’m so excited to finally pull everything together, gather a group of moms and teach you how to use that camera that’s stuck in auto. If you are a mom with a DSLR or mirrorless camera, and you want to get out of auto permanently, this is the class for you!
My goal is to teach you the basics of photography so that you can document your family’s memories for years to come. Some of my favorite pictures I have of my kiddos are what I think are really just moments best captured by their mom. For example, one of my favorite pictures of my boys was just them being silly in the bath. Another favorite was my husband reading to our toddler the night before he became a big brother! As a mom of three, I know just how quickly those tiny moments go by. I think it’s important for you to be able to capture them as well!
A Photography Workshop for Moms
If you have followed me for a while, then you know that I was actually a teacher and curriculum specialist before my oldest was born! I am really looking forward to teaching again, while also taking the things you DO know and building on them. This class is really about the basics of photography and learning what you need at your level. I will cover the exposure triangle, white balance, focusing, lighting and composition. I will close the class with a brief look at how I edit my images. Each mother who leaves my studio will have the confidence they need to capture consistent, properly exposed, well lit images of their family and children.

Q & A | A Photography Workshop for Moms
Is this class for photographers?
I believe that this class is too basic for a photographer.
What do I need to attend class?
You will need a mirrorless or DSLR camera. I will be MOST helpful with any Nikon camera, but can still help you with Canon or Sony as well. If you are looking to buy a new camera, this article gives great tips about purchasing a DSLR vs Mirrorless. I have both a Nikon DSLR and a Nikon mirrorless camera.
What lenses do you suggest?
*These are not a requirement of the class, however, if you are purchasing a new camera, SKIP the kit lens and buy just the body!* I think the best learning lenses are just a simple 35mm 1.8 or 50mm 1.8. The choice you make there will depend on your camera body. If you have a crop sensor camera, the 35mm 1.8 is the best because you will have more room in camera! If you have a full frame camera, I love a good nifty fifty!
What should I bring to class?
- Your Camera & Lens
- Instruction Manual
- A stuffed animal that sits and has eyes
How many people will be in the class?
This photography workshop for moms will be capped at 8 so that I am able to give personalized assistance to everyone who attends. I am also requiring a minimum of 4 to hold the class, so please share with your friends!
