Photog-Mom Class!


I’ve come across so many parents that have received or bought really nice cameras thinking the gear would improve their photographs, and while this is true to an extent, we all know that a cook is what makes the batter great.  So how do you become a great cook?  You learn… you follow the recipe! And learning your camera is no different.

On Saturday, February 6th I will be hosting a Photog-Mom class in Ballantyne. Class will be from 10-2 with lunch provided.  You will need to bring your camera, as hands-on instruction is vital in helping you become more comfortable with your particular model.  Cost is only $99 and I even have gift certificates available if you want to make this a Christmas gift! Get that camera off auto and take some great photos of your kids this year!

Carolina Shootout

Hey all!  I know that when I first got started in this industry I desperately needed help with one basic concept… lighting.  Where do I put my speedlights?  What setting do I use?  And what the heck are Alien Bees?  Something from another planet?

Something else I struggled with was posing my couples.  I hated things that looked posed and unnatural… like they were trying to hard.  I think I still look at sessions like that and cringe!  So, after talking with a few of my besties in the industry I thought that hosting a lighting and posing shootout would be beneficial.

We’re going to have the event at Anne Spring Greenway’s Dairy Barn property on Sunday September 18th, 2011 (for all you full time working people!).  It will be a 2 hour event from 6-8pm with refreshments, a bride and groom model, designer gown and pretty flowers.  You will definitely leave this event encouraged and with some great images for your portfolio.  Cost is only $30!  Sign up here… You don’t want to miss this amazing opportunity to learn from your fellow photographers!

Get [Taught] Workshop Announcement!

I’ve been asked many times by my colleagues and friends how my photography business started and got up off the ground so quickly that I felt the need to hold a workshop.  My hope is that this workshop empowers others to live their dream and start the business they’ve always wanted to.  You can be in the thought process, beginning stages or already launched your business (and you don’t have to be a photographer)!  I believe this workshop will hold valuable tools for anyone who comes.  Continental Breakfast and Lunch included!
