Coming soon: Light, Light, Light Workshop.  Natural light photography class.  This workshop will be geared toward individuals who enjoy the art of photographing children.  I know your children are adorable!  Yes, I know they are cute!  Yes, I know they are growing up SO fast!  I would love to be there to photograph each of their new achievements in life.  First messy bowl of spaghetti, first time standing on those wobbly legs, first time whistling, riding a bike, getting on the school bus.  The reality is that I CAN’T be there for it all.  I’m here photographing my own little ones and their milestones.  What I can do is give you the tools to be a better Mom-ographer or Dad -ographer.  Let me help YOU take better photographs of your family and friends.  This class is great because we will be focusing only on natural lighting.  A DSLR is wonderful for this class but not necessary.  The techniques that I will present will allow you to take great images with your Iphone, point and shoot or your fancy pants DSLR.  The goal of this class will be to evaluate lighting scenarios and achieve better exposure and quality of imagery in Auto mode.  Interested? email me at
