Looking for a private lesson or have specific learning objectives? Let's chat! I would love to help you reach your photography learning goals.
I’m sure you’ve heard the saying, “The days are long but the years are short”. It never ceases to amaze me how quickly children grow and how quickly years fly by, even when you’re awake 23 hours of the day. This is why I love photography so much. It gives me the superpower to freeze time; the ability to cherish baby toes forever or to relive that feeling of pure excitement at a birthday party. All those little details, events, and emotions make up your family story and I hope to teach you how to be the story teller through photographs. Want to learn how I do that? Super!
The Snap & Chat Workshop is designed for moms who want to learn how to use their fancy camera and take more creative photos of their family and their daily life. This course is split in two 2-hr classes, one week apart, to allow students to digest the information and practice their new skills in between classes. We will cover some camera basics to help you achieve certain looks and styles, as well as how light impacts the mood and quality of your images. You will learn how to create moments, how best to capture them, and how to engage your children and inspire natural interaction with genuine emotion. We will also cover some basic post-processing techniques and you will have the opportunity to view and compare print and display options. Questions are encouraged throughout the course and there will be a portion of the last class dedicated to Q&A.
"I've taken some, one-size-fits-all store photography classes, but my experience taking Michelle's workshop far surpassed those. The small class size and comfortable setting really left me feeling relaxed. Her passion and dedication really shined through. We covered a lot in a short period but it never felt rushed. Michelle is a encouraging teacher and is as organized as they come. She really maximized our time together (which as a busy mom I really appreciate). I'm finally using my camera again!"
As a student you will have access to a VIP Facebook Group where you can continue to share and learn long after the classes are done. You will also have to opportunity to attend our seasonal photography meet-ups for on-location practice and learning (dates & locations will be shared with our VIP students only).
