Grace Olivia was born July 12, 2011 at 7:29am. I remember that moment with the most intricate detail. My husband’s face was framed by a bright orange otterbox, my parents holding my hands standing behind my head, and the most beautiful cry I heard. Grace was born while my husband Steven was deployed and we were not reunited until she was nearing her 6th month. So to say capturing every moment was important would clearly be an understatement. I wanted to capture every moment for him as if he didn’t miss a moment. So this is when I became passionate about capturing the momentous, ordinary, and crazy moments of our life. Since then, I’ve been able to look back at those precious moments when I feel like the past four years have been a blur. Especially through my sleep deprived and fuzzy baby brain. We all know what that is like!
Since teaching workshops, mentoring session, and capturing special moments for couples/families, I’ve come across a common theme… people want to be able to capture ordinary moments of their life, not just with their iPhone, but with their DSLR.
So let’s learn to take the DSLR off of Auto, get past those blurry and bright yellow/orange photos, and learn to use your DSLR to its highest potential.
Lenses (If you’re shopping for a new lens, I recommend the 50mm fixed lens)
Available classes with take place in Capitol Hill on Saturday March 28th 2015 at 10am and Sunday April 19th at 3:30pm. This class is available to anyone who owns a DSLR. If you’re considering a DSLR and have not yet made the purchase, feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I can send some recommendations.
Are you allowed to bring children to the class? Yes and No. I don’t recommend bringing them to the first part of the class unless they are the sleepy newborn kind. However, feel free to meet up with your children at the part that will take place in Lincoln Park!
How many spaces are available per class? 12 spots
What if your photos still come out blurry, out of focus, and yellow after the class? You can email me to figure out what you could be doing wrong.

What was your favorite memory from this past year? Life is so short and time goes by so fast. It all ends up blurring together. Which is why I’m so passionate about capturing all the sweet and precious memories! I think about how the messy peanut butter hands, toys everywhere, and the need for constant cuddles will soon be part of my fondest memories.
