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, I encourage you to come and learn with me in my Rock Your Shots digital photography classes. I offer online classes for everyone to be able to learn at their own pace.

One on one mentoring and workshops are held separately, contact me for more information.
