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.
