**The last class of 2018 is now open for registration! Click here to join us on Nov 10th in SW Portland/Beaverton!
If you want to be put on the wait list for 2019 classes, or host your own, please get in touch!

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. 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 the very active alumni group where they’re working on a 52 week photo project and there are additional challenges throughout the year

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!
