Are you ready to FINALLY learn how to use that fancy camera?

I've heard it time and time again...You bought that "fancy camera" when your kiddos were born with visions of beautiful, light and bright images of your magical every day moments captured effortlessly...But every time you go to reach for that camera, you find yourself overcome with a sense of frustration. By the time you've got your camera out and have figured out which buttons to press, the moment has passed and you feel more defeated than ever. You ultimately just grab your iPhone and take a few snapshots so you have SOMETHING to show for the moment. 

Wouldn't it be so nice if you could just peek into the mind of a professional photographer and learn an easy, actionable system that would allow you to FINALLY get the results your after and make some REAL progress?

I've cracked the code on making manual mode easy to learn, making lifestyle photography FUN and stress free, and I'm sharing all of that with you through online workshops, tutorials and free resources.

I was half joking, half serious when I said frame-worthy was life changing. I've always loved photography and to have the skills to take pictures of my family brings me so much joy!
