Moms with Cameras is a 3-4 hour in person class with 4 weeks of post-class online homework and support. It is designed specifically for moms who want to take better photos of their kids. A DSLR is recommended, but by no means required. The first portion of the class is focused on the technical, but the second half is all about composition and capturing the moment. You can take better photos with any camera (yes, even your cell phone!).

What we’ll cover:
Technical basics (exposure, ISO, shutter speed, aperture and camera modes)
Finding the light
Capturing the moment
Improving composition
Quick tips to better your images

What you get:
3-4 hour In-person class with other mamas
Small group (6-12 moms) to allow plenty of time for questions and individual attention
Private Facebook group for discussion, sharing, camaraderie
4 weeks of post-class homework, critiques and support (via the Facebook group)
Access to our alumni group

The class is the most fun when it’s a group of friends or a group of random mamas, paired with wine or mimosas and snacks. Leave the kiddos at home and think of it as a girls’ night (or morning or afternoon) in! The best part is,  you’ll leave with a better understanding of how to capture your kids just how they are right now. You can’t go wrong!
