A Hands-On, Beginner Photography Workshop Retreat for Mamas! 

The workshop is designed for mothers. We understand the importance of capturing precious moments with your children, and we want to help you do just that.

By the end of our workshop, you'll have the skills and confidence to take stunning photos of your children that will be treasured for years to come. You'll be able to look back on these photos and feel the warmth of those special moments, the love and the connection you have with your children and preserve their uniqueness. 

Want to relive the moments,

As a fellow Mama of two and professional photographer, I understand how important it is to capture precious moments that will preserve memories for a lifetime. Together, let's empower you to take control of your camera and create stunning photographs that you and your loved ones will treasure forever in our workshop.



What do I need to bring on the day?

DSLR or Mirrorless Camera and Lens, Charged Camera Battery, Memory Cards, Phone or Tablet with Lightroom Mobile (Free app) installed

What concepts will we be covering

We will be covering only what relates to photographing your children. This includes light, manual camera settings and editing. We will have a live demonstration so that we can get practical and practice together. 

This is for you if....

✓ You own a DSLR or Mirrorless Camera which isn’t getting enough use.

✓ You wish time would slow down and want to capture as many nostalgic moments of your kids as you can whilst they are still little.

✓ You feel overwhelmed when you look at your camera and don’t know where to start.

✓ You want to learn photography without all the tech fluff that seems to come with it.

✓ You’ve never shot in manual mode, or have no idea what that means! 

✓ You’d love to turn every day moments into works of art.

✓ You want to create frame-worthy photos of your kids.

✓ You’ve been searching for a like-minded group of mamas to share and grow your photography skills alongside.

✓You’re looking for a passion which fills your cup and you can call your own

✗ You’re a professional photographer who already knows how to shoot in manual (this is a beginner workshop and you may know a lot of the content).

✗ You want to learn to shoot something other than portraits (e.g. landscape).

✗ You’re happy with iPhone shot and edited photos of your family!

"Courtney's approach to her workshops are really so insightful and inspiring! She has a confident but calm nature and this really helps with how she engages with her participants.
We had the pleasure of having Courtney with us for one of our business growth workshops and I can honestly say I'm so happy I decided to have her lead the workshop! She is not only a beautiful mum but also a very talented photographer!"
