The

Magically Mundane

photographing the seasons of motherhood

Charleston | April 29-30

Cape Cod | June 3-4

This workshop was made for you

Motherhood is fleeting, yet also our greatest joy. Preserving the magic in the mundane tasks of our daily motherhood in photographic form, is the most comforting step we can take in remembering these precious seasons that pass all too quickly. Mothers need photographs, and I’m here to not just show you how I create, but to teach you the ways to tap into your unique perspectives and experiences, that will allow you to make photographs that feel honest and emotive, and honor your clients’ stories. Taking your art and your business to the next level of fulfillment and prosperity.

During this intimate photography workshop for both film and digital shooter, we will discuss all the facets of family photography with a strong emphasis on motherhood imagery. I would love to have you join me.

FAQ

Who is the workshop for?

Anyone who has a heart for motherhood + family photography. Our portfolio shoots and education will cover both. All skill levels are welcome; whether you just bought your first camera, or have an established 10 year business, we have attendees across the board and all benefit greatly from this one of a kind experience. Both film and digital shooters are welcome as well!  We will cover topics that apply to both, and the beautifully styled portfolio shoots will help you attract your ideal client.

Are accommodations included?

Accommodations are not included in the cost of the workshop, but all education, portfolio shoots, all catered meals, snacks, the workshop booklet, headshots, 1:1 call, and a few other surprises are all included. I will also put all attendees in touch and also send housing suggestions nearby the workshop house so that those who desire to stay together can go that route!

How many attendees will you take?

The workshops typically have between 7-10 attendees. I like to keep things intimate because it allows me to offer the most individualized attention, more room for portfolio shoots so that everyone gets a plethora of beautiful images, and it fosters a deeper connection between attendees. This is a life elevating experience and my desire is that every single attendee feels that. 

How is this workshop different than others?

I’m here to offer you my 10+ years of experience as a family/motherhood photographer. I have learned a great deal through the years about how to create honest, emotive, timeless imagery for families and mothers. I have also learned how to create a lucrative business and attract my ideal client, and I have done it all while homeschooling my four children, gardening, writing, living intentionally, and enjoying my life to the fullest. I am no stranger to heavy emotions, scary changes, and discomfort, but I’m here to share my heart about how all of those experiences have made me a better photographer and business owner, and how yours can help you to do the same. This workshop connects a group of people in a life long and beautiful way. This is my fourth year holding multiple workshops each year around the country, and I have learned a few things about how to be sure all attendees get the most out of their experience.
