Photography classes for people just like you!

You've got the camera. Are you getting the most out of it? Now you can!

As a wife and mom to 3 of my own plus 2 step kiddos and previous head trainer at a nation wide company, I am passionate about teaching photography classes to other people who want to learn more about using their own cameras. I walk you through the basic functions of your camera step-by-step and have you taking control in no time. Whether you're using a DSLR, mirrorless, or other creative dial camera {able to shoot in manual}, I encourage you to come and learn with me in my Rock Your Shots digital photography classes. I hold my in person classes monthly in my downtown Downers Grove studio, as well as offering online self paced classes for those that can not make it in person. One on one mentoring and workshops are held separately, contact me for more information.
