A Photo Workshop for Moms

APRIL 13, 2016 || Last Fall, my photographer friend Posy and I spent an afternoon with a group of moms at the Oregon Coast teaching them simple and easy tricks for taking better photos of their kids. Curled up on couches in the living room, we shared, snacked, sipped tea and wine, went through our phones and cameras, and talked about photography on a level that was straight-forward and comfortable for moms who don't just want to capture daily moments of their kids' lives, but beautiful ones.

The participants were not professional photographers or even aspiring ones; they were any mom. . . just like you!

"This workshop was not only a blast, but even more worthwhile than I initially thought. I learned amazing tips
for finding the right light, positioning myself correctly to get fresher angles and helpful hints on editing.
I use the information from the class DAILY. So wonderful!"
- Laura Jansen, Oregon workshop participant
