Beginners Photography 

Small group classes for beginner photographers


Do you have a nice camera that you don't know how to use?

Capturing stunning, authentic images with your DSLR takes more than the push of a button. In this class, you'll walk through every feature, setting, and real-life strategy that no camera-owner should be without.

After this class, expect to be comfortable with the following concepts:

  • Fundamental DSLR elements
  • Exposure, aperture & shutter speed
  • Depth of field & background blur
  • Essential lenses & focal length
  • Tack-sharp focus
  • Basic lighting techniques
  • Composition strategies to create impact

"Photography is the story I fail to put into words"

Who is this for?

  • You have a DSLR or mirrorless camera (Canon, Nikon, Sony, etc.) that you don't know how to use.
  • You are a parent who wants to take better pictures of your family.
  • You are a blogger or business owner who wants to improve the quality of the photos you post.
  • You're inspired by living here in Alaska and want to capture its beauty

Who is this class NOT for?

  • If you are thinking about starting your own photography business this class is not for you. I will not be discussing the business of photography.
  • If you already know all the bells & whistles of your camera and can consistently take properly exposed and creative photos you are probably too advanced for this class.

About Me

First as a travel and landscape photographer for nearly six years and now a mom of a toddler with a portrait business, I understand how important it is to be able to capture special moments, especially those of everyday life. As a full-service, boutique newborn and family photographer, I am able to provide my clients with not only an incredible photographic experience, but also the opportunity to preserve your family's most precious memories through printed photography. I enjoy being able to share my knowledge and love for photography, which is why I offer a fun, hands-on learning environment where anyone can learn how to capture their own special moments.
