The memories you're looking to capture are so much more than "say cheese."
Maybe you’re like me and have visions of transcendent imagery with your children clad in linen, skipping along the beach in front of the summer cottage.
I also experienced what it's like to turn up empty when coaxing my kids into ethereal imagery. Often a child dresses himself in his favorite spider man t-shirt and refuses to brush his hair or we get in the linen outfits and somehow one child is suddenly covered in chocolate.
As mothers we can plan, adapt and even bring a little bit of the chaos into our imagery. I have created a beginner photography course to help you photograph your children honestly & beautifully.
Some of my favorite images to look back on are the photographs where my plans went out the window. We kept it fun and the personalities of my children radiated in the beautiful summer evening light. It is more than the linen or the cottage, it is them… their laughs, pouts, and play.
All the ordinary moments culminate to create
a magical childhood!
We learn faster when we learn together.
These are the days you'll never want to forget–every sticky finger, belly laugh, and boo-boo.
You may complete the lessons on your own time, but you don’t travel a lonely road, mama. You have the option to join a community of busy mothers just like you, who want to know you, support you and see you grow as a photographer and support you in your motherhood.

I need this!!!
Sounds like you right now?
You have spent countless hours scouring Google and Youtube for information. Everytime you learn something new, you find something else you don’t know how to do.
You have spent more money than you care to add up purchasing Photoshop actions and Lightroom presets, hoping they will save your images.
You stay up too late trying to figure out what went wrong the last time you tried to use your camera and still don’t know how to use manual mode.
Your kids see the camera come out and they run faster than you have ever seen them. Bribes don’t even work any more!
I see you nodding there, mama, keep reading!
I have been there, mama. We all start somewhere and for me it was at home, with young children. I remember searching for education on Google and Youtube during nap time and in between folding the endless loads of laundry. I felt alone.
IT IS HARD TO FIND THE TIME TO LEARN PHOTOGRAPHY WHILE RAISING CHILDREN
I bought all the actions and presets, spent countless hours googling questions and watching youtube videos and making my children miserable as I chased them around with my camera, not knowing what I would do differently. I felt tired and lonely, trying to navigate motherhood and this new desire to learn photography.
And years later, I realized, there is a better way…..
This is a course where you will learn new photography skills and share with other mamas. Motherhood Inspired is a safe space to ask all your questions, learn how to take better photographs of your children, support and uplift one another and to get a little bit vulnerable. This is the beginning of your beautiful photography journey!

kind words from past students
How Would It FEel To...
FEEL COMFORTABLE USING YOUR CAMERA IN JUST 6 WEEKS
✓ Understand your camera settings and what all those dials mean
✓ Enjoy photographing your family and be proud of your work
✓ Go to bed at a reasonable time instead of scouring the internet for answers
✓ Have your own circle of supportive mothers to engage with when it’s convenient for you
✓ Kick the imposter syndrome and gain confidence
✓ Have beautiful images straight out of camera
Do I have the right camera?
You can use a DSLR or mirrorless camera, it doesn’t really matter the make or model! Only have your iphone? We do discuss specific camera settings, however, each module contains prompts for you to photograph your children authentically.
I'm so busy, I don't think i'll have time...
Each module is short enough to read during nap time, while nursing, or after the kids go to bed. Lessons include prompts that allow you to practice while spending time with your children. You will begin to look at snack time, park time, bath time and other sometimes mundane situations as inspiration!
My kids will never cooperate?!
They don’t need to. During this beginner photography course, you will not need to ask your children to stare at your camera and say cheese EVER! Prompts are designed to be directed through child play, interactive, fun and documentary.
I'm nervous to post my work in the group
You are not alone. It is not mandatory to post your work, but recommended. Posting in the group makes you accountable to do the assignment. We are inspired by each other’s work and here to uplift one another. Art is subjective. Each person will be drawn to something different. It is exciting to see how each person interprets a lesson and how they are able to capture their children. Don’t be shy, we want to see life through your lens!
