Step 1


Let me ask you this: How many things (courses, ebooks) have you bought online and then never finished? If you’ve tried online videos and distance learning before, you already know there is a wealth of knowledge at your fingertips. The problem isn’t finding it, it’s narrowing it down to what you actually want to learn, and then actually doing it. With private lessons you don’t waste any time.

Step 2


THEY MAKE YOU ACCOUNTABLE– You’ll actually do them! It’s not an anonymous video that no one notices if you watch or not. THEY ARE AT YOUR LEVEL – You’ll get way more out of it because you can ask a real person the exact questions you’re having trouble with. THEY ARE WAY MORE FUN! – You’ll get outside in the sunshine to practice and can meet people in real life rather than just behind a screen.

Step 3


Maybe your kids are all grown up with children of their own who you would love to photograph as a legacy for the future. Perhaps you have a garden that you’re particularly proud of, or you like to travel a bit, and would love to be able to take better photos of your flowers and trips to share with family and friends. The good news is you can. And, you don’t need to become a professional to be a great photographer and create what you see in your artistic mind. In this modern age, you have almost unlimited knowledge at your fingertips. For example, there’s no shortage of YouTube videos on how to do just about anything from fixing a broken lawn mower to learning photography. But, if you’re like me, videos can soon become a frustrating way to learn. There’s always something you want to ask but can’t, so it’s preferable to invest time in more personalized learning from someone you interact with directly in a face to face setting.

Step 4


I love teaching photography this way to people like yourself, even if you feel like you’re a complete beginner. In fact, every great photographer was a beginner at some point, and I’m a strong believer that there’s no such thing as a stupid question. This is where my introvert personality is a real bonus because I’m very patient and approachable without being intimidating. For you, this means we can take it entirely at your pace. In order to provide first-class service, I accept a limited number of clients each month. This means I can devote more time to you, personally, to teach you everything you want to know and answer all your questions along the way. I decided to offer private lessons to inspire others to find the beauty in their own backyard and discover a passion for creating treasured photos of their own families. You don’t have to go anywhere special to do that because home is special enough, if you know what to look for. Yes, there are a few lucky moments, but a true artist carefully chooses exactly what to include in the frame and what to leave out. You want to be inspired by what we create, and my goal is to help you create photos that take your breath away every time you look at them.
