capture beautiful photos of your family at home

Time passes us by, and our children grow in a blink of an eye. And you never know the day when their first and lasts will come and go. Their first crawl, the last time they tie their shoes, that final lost tooth. Sometimes that iPhone snapshot just isn't enough to truly document and be present in the beauty of these moments.

This is why we believe it's important to not only visit our studio for milestones, but also learn how to document everyday moments at home. Our intro camera class is a two-hour workshop for beginners – you’ll learn how to use a digital camera in a setting ideal for documenting your family, and learn tips and tricks to get better images!

Loved this class!

This was a fantastic introduction to photography, and I am so much more confident in using my camera now. The class was so fun and engaging! It was so helpful to have someone explain the basics and be there in person to show you what all the buttons do and what the abbreviations mean. The tips on what to focus on manually and what you can leave on auto focus were also very helpful. Thank you for all your help in teaching me how to take better photos! - Kerissa N.


Newfound skills

After years of using my camera on automatic, I am so glad to now know how to take photos using all the different aspects of what my camera is capable of. My biggest takeway was understanding what aperture numbers to use for sweeping landscapes and which ones to use for my daughter's sports games. Thank you for an awesome class! - Ashley W.
