Want to do more than just iPhone pictures?

So many parents out there bought the nice fancy camera.  A beautiful new Nikon or Canon or Fuji. But only a small smattering of people have the time to learn how to use it.

I get it.

It’s overwhelming.  As parents we barely have time to poop by ourselves or brush our own hair let alone read a manual. And let’s face it,  manuals are about as exciting as watching watercolor dry (yes,  my toddlers have asked me to do that so I personally know).

But what if you could take a class that could help you not just have more confidence with the camera but also feel proud of your images? I have spent the last 10 years honing my craft, learning in workshops all over the world, studying from some amazing mentors, and now I’m ready to teach you to take photographs you’d love to have on your walls. We won’t be sitting in a sterile classroom staring at white walls and tile ceilings.  We’ll spend some time learning the technical stuff and then we’ll get some time to figure out your camera all together. I’ll be there to help you with any questions you have as you do hands on learning.



Things we’ll study:


-the various programs

-lens specifications

-navigating your menu and what the terms mean (I’m a Nikon user just a heads up but I can help you figure it out)


It’s a simple list that may not look like much but trust me, this course is dense and you will walk away feeling like your camera is now a tool!

What others are saying

I recently took a photography class from Margaret after buying my first DSLR camera. She definitely exceeded my expectations. I came out of the class feeling confident enough to start using my camera in its manual mode. She also had so many great tips! I would definitely recommend this class to anyone hoping to learn how to use their DSLR camera outside of the auto mode!! So worth it!! – N. C.



Did you know

We are raising the most photographed but least printed generation? Do more than just take iPhone pictures. Take pictures with your big-kid camera and you are more likely to PRINT those. And your family WANTS printed images – don’t you?
