Mentoring for mamas learning to use their fancy camera and create better photos of their kids

Do you have high hopes for the images you want to create with your fancy camera but no idea how to use it? Or maybe you have been giving it a crack and realising that teaching yourself is taking far too long and the guys on youtube offering advice just sound like they are talking gibberish. Or perhaps you learn better on on one instead of in a group. Let me help. 

Before I had kids, my camera sat in a drawer for years. But when I had my first daughter I knew that i wanted to preserve the memory of her growing up, to look back on forever. But I was completely overwhelmed by the thought of using my camera. I knew I needed to learn to shoot in manual to bring the photos in my head to life. And it was only when an amazing photographer friend of mine mentored me that I gained the confidence I needed to step out and master my camera.

My friend took me and my daughter to the beach and we took a tonne of photos together. She showed me where to find the best light and the camera settings to match. We then sat down together to edit the photos and she showed me the entire process. And I was able to ask her follow up questions as I put it all into practice myself. 

I've based my mentoring system around this experience, because it was the best way to learn. I want to help you shortcut the stress and steeeeep learning curve and help you to create dreamy photographs.
