You recognized the importance of capturing the magical and fleeting moments and you invested in a DSLR camera.

Yet, do you still find yourself reaching for your phone to snap your family photographs while your brand-new camera is gathering dust on a shelf? I completely get it - we're busy parents! Learning a new creative medium can take a lot of time and energy.

As much as I would relish the opportunity to photograph all your memories for you, I am equally as passionate about sharing my knowledge and creativity so that you can begin making your own authentic family portraits with confidence and enthusiasm.

Learn how to turn your passion for your family into profound and moving portraits. I will not teach you what to see, but I will teach you where to look. Learn how to create pictures that are guaranteed to become pieces of fine art that you will want to hang on your walls.
