When I started my photography journey in 2007, I remember how frustrated I was in my lack of knowledge and skills. I didn’t know the proper route on how to educate myself. In 2008, I discovered a local photographer who was teaching workshops and I discovered a whole new level of photography and fell head over heels in love with it. I am so grateful for those that helped me and offered to educate me on my journey and I am thrilled to now be able to be the photographer to do the same for others.
I OFFER SEVERAL OPTIONS
One on One Tutoring: $250
This is a two hour one on one tutoring session with me. We can focus on what you need to learn and progress on next in your photography journey. Whether that be learning your manual camera setting, flash lighting, studio lighting, posing, editing or even running a business…..I am happy to share my knowledge and experience.
Four Tutoring Sessions: $1000
This will be two one on one tutoring sessions with me working on what you want to learn and also two observation/assisting sessions. The observation sessions will allow you to watch me in person photograph a client session. You will see how I interact with the clients, how I pose them and what camera setting I set and then adjust throughout a session. These sessions must be completed in a one-month time frame.
Basic Photography Class
(also known locally as our Mommy Photography Class)
This class is offered for one night in the month of March each year. Due to our very busy schedule, we can only offer this class during the month of March. This is a two-hour class at the studio that covers basic manual camera settings and understanding lighting a little better to take better pictures with the DSLR camera you have. To stay in the loop with our schedule, pricing and offerings of this class, please like our Facebook page.
Beyond The Basics Photography Class
This class is for those that want to take the next step and go just beyond the basics. I will be covering flash (on camera and off camera), understanding light (natural and studio), and photographing a live model along side me. We will have an extended Q and A time, so bring your questions and I will give you answers. You must have a basic knowledge of aperture, shutter speed, and ISO camera settings to have this class be beneficial for you. If you attended my “mommy photography class” this class would be the next step in your photography education journey.
Moms Group Speaking Engagements
I so enjoy going to different moms group and teaching a condensed version of my Basic Photography Class. I am happy to teach other moms some great photography tips so they can go home and know how to take better pictures of their children that very day. I also offer a Q & A time since I have discovered moms have so many questions about the ever-changing world of technology and digital photography.

CLASS INFORMATION & DATES
I am happy to announce that we have set dates for the ever popular Mommy Photography Class. This is our 6th year offering this class and it sells out every time. So if you are a mom, dad, grandparent or just someone who wants to learn the basics of photography in one evening, you are welcome to sign up for this fun class. I will be teaching everyone the settings (aperture, shutter speed, ISO and white balance) you need to set on your cameras to get a well exposed image. We will also discuss lighting, composition and how to interact with children. This class is set up for those with DSLR cameras like a “Canon Rebel”…..however, if you have a camera that has manual settings you will be able to learn a lot in one evening. I am an exclusive “Canon” photographer, if you have a Nikon or other brand, you are welcome to come; I just ask you bring your manual along to find the buttons and settings that I will be showing from my Canon cameras. There are two dates available. This is a ONE NIGHT class.
Part of the proceeds from this class will be donated to the Kalamazoo Gospel Mission to help them raise money for their woman and children homeless shelter.
***Class fee is NON-refundable. If you need to cancel, you may sell your seat to another person, but no refunds can be given since this is also a fundraiser. Seating is very limited and is “first come first pay”.***
