Yikes! It's been much too long since I last posted! Sorry about that!! I've caught the spring cleaning and/or nesting bug and I have been cleaning out closets lately! As you know that can suck away the time like nothing else and once you start you can't stop.... that is unless you want to live in a huge mess! :) The closets are all done now though so that feels really good! Now the kids are on Spring Break for 2 weeks so we will be enjoying the time off and hitting the swimming pool for sure!!
I have some awesome giveaways coming soon so be watching for those! The first one will be tomorrow!!
I also wanted to post an update about my online photography workshops. I've been getting lots of emails asking about upcoming class and dates, etc.
The next Beginner/Intermediate class will run from April 11th - May 21st. The link to register and all the details can be found on my workshops page here.
I am currently running an Advanced class that is now Sold Out. The next Advanced class date isn't set yet but will likely not be until later in the year.
I will be taking a small break to have the baby and then will start classes back up after that in the late Summer or early Fall. This means that if you want to take the Beg/Intermediate class sooner rather than later, you better jump in the April class and register now before it is sold out. Again you can register over on my workshops page here. The link is in the right column.
I haven't shared testimonials in a while so I thought I would share a few that I have received recently. I truly do have the best students and they send me the sweetest emails! It always means so much to hear such nice feedback and comments! Thanks you guys!!!!
I was just on the message board and wanted to thank you so much for your great feedback on my pictures! I am loving your class so far, and even though I was a little frustrated at working in manual last week, I do love it when I get a great photo! So worth all the struggles!! :) Years ago I had taken a photography class in college, (just for fun), but the book was so very dry and technical, I ended up not finishing the class (which my husband loves to tease me endlessly about!! :) Your lessons are so clear and well written, and I just love your writing style....and the message board is so neat because you can see everyone's beautiful pictures!...so, thank you for such a wonderful class! I am enjoying it very much!.................Belinda :)
First I have to thank you for all the hard work you have put into your course. I have been searching for some time for a course on-line that I thought would fit with my style. I happened to stumble over your website on a good friends family blog as one of. Her favourite websites. As I opened your page I was instantly inspired by your photography. Snapping shots of infants, children and possibly maternity is something I have always thought I would enjoy doing. Not being able to shoot in manual made this a challenge. So, I was SUPER excited to stumble across your courses. I signed up right then. your assignments have been EXACTLY what I have been looking for. Straight to the important things in lingo I can understand. I was laying in bed the other night with assignment 2 in one hand, camera in the other and my labtop on my knee and I said to my husband "mydream might come true! I already feel like I have learned so much." I am blessed to have a wonderful husband who supports my dreams 100 percent. So THANK YOU! I will definitely be signing up for the advanced course.......................Lara
I wanted to say I learned soooo much from your class- it was a great six weeks and am sad to see it end (wondering if you are thinking of developing anymore classes??? ) The content was incredible- feedback great and I really feel like I have grown in my skills....!!! Thank you so much for everything- your insight, teaching and information was absolutely incredible!!! I am going back to the tutorials/assignments to make sure I have all the information:) Thank you again and good luck with everything!!! I hope you do some more classes, I would take them in a heartbeat:).......................Rachel
I've been meaning to email you this for months! I just wanted you to know how much I enjoyed your online classes. I took both the beginner and intermediate photography classes and they were great.
I've taken other online classes, and though I have learned a lot, I learned the most from your classes.
Thank you for sharing your hard work and your talent...............Deb
If you have any questions about the classes, you can always email me!! Looking forward to having you in class!! Oh, and since blog posts aren't nearly as exciting without an image, here are a couple that I took up in Utah last year.
Love these two!! Tyler is super duper sweet to Emily Jane and always has been. It has been really fun to see what a special and tender love he has for her. Ever since she was tiny he would go up to her and put his head right to hers and talk really quietly and sweetly to her..... and even now he is still doing it. Now that she is older and getting more spunky she won't always let him and she will often tease him by saying "Tyler's kisses are yucky kisses." He knows she is joking but I think he still gets a little hurt by it. The other day she said out of nowhere: "Tyler I love you.... you are my best friend..... your kisses are yummy kisses, not yucky" and he lit up like I have never seen!
