Follow in the footsteps of the journey I took 5 years ago – when I started learning how to photograph the special everyday moments in my kids’ lives.

Childhood goes by so quickly… I wanted to capture this amazing time with images to decorate my home & my heart for years to come. But I struggled to take photos like the one’s I loved looking at online.

Slowly, I cracked the code. Figured out how to get my settings right. Discovered the magic of working with light. And began to compose rich, interesting images that really tell a story.

Now, I’ve put all the most important lessons together in the 
Ultimate Intro to Photography.

It’s the only Introduction to Photography you’ll ever need.

And it will have you taking beautiful, professional-style photos 
of the people & things you love in no time!
