does this sound familiar?


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...

"The investment in Frame-Worthy has paid back tenfold."

My only regret is that I didn't take it sooner.

- Kristi

Sure, I'm a pro photographer now...

But it didn't start out that way. Not even close. 

There was a time, not all that long ago, that I felt the exact same way you do now when it came to taking pictures. Overwhelming terms, too many buttons, and no idea how to get the blurry backgrounds and tack sharp subjects I hoped to capture when I bought it in the first place.

With time, determination and effort, I developed a framework that helped me and dozens upon dozens of students take beautiful, frame-worthy photographs

The Frame-Worthy Photo Course is the ONLY photography course you'll need to finally take control of that DSLR and start capturing beautiful, frame-worthy photos of your everyday life.

I'll teach you everything you need to know about your camera to take control of your photos! No more hit or miss pictures - you’ll learn everything you need to get consistently beautiful pictures, with beautiful blurry backgrounds. You’ll have a step by step process to put in place every time you pick up your camera to avoid the overwhelm and jump right into taking beautiful pictures.

Did you know that lighting is JUST as important as knowing how to work your camera, if not MORE important!? I'll teach you how to easily see light, and my exact method for choosing beautiful light every time. I'll also teach you how to make your little ones eyes twinkle and shine in your photos, and how to find beautiful light indoors and out (and how to capture the glow like in this picture!).

"The course was the best gift I've ever given myself."

"Just wanted to tell you how freaking AMAZING your course has been for me! I have been using my DSLR camera on auto for years and have never quite understood to shoot in manual... BUT I FINALLY GET IT!!

A year from now you will have wished you started today...

So let's get started!

"Before Frame-Worthy I had a fancy camera but zero confidence in my ability to use it. 

I am now taking photos of my daughters that I am so proud of! I pull out my camera for 10 minutes here or there and have captured moments of their little-ness that I know I will treasure forever.  The investment in the FrameWorthy course has paid back tenfold.  My only regret is that I didn't take it sooner!

Yes, It Really Works

"Best gift I ever gave myself was this class!"

Found the best light tonight during golden hour! I love being able to get the settings the way I want them and just having someone take the picture so I can be in it too!

"This course was EXACTLY what I was looking for!"

The course was so easy to follow and I really appreciate the lifetime access, as I continue to return to the course again and again as I refocus on certain areas. Thank you so much, Courtney, for putting so much thought and love into this course!

more about me

Hey there!

check out my professional work

I used to be right where you are...

When I invested in a nice camera, I was frustrated that I wasn't capturing the beautiful pictures I'd envisioned.

 I'm not shy to admit that I'm not a natural born creative. I didn't pick up a camera and immediately start taking incredible photos. The truth is that I'm not a creative person, but I've created a framework and system for producing creativity. Don't believe me? 

Some of my early work, with top of the line professional equipment is here on the left. These photos were shot with thousands of dollars worth of camera equipment back in 2015. The ones right below it were captured with gear that cost 1/3rd of the cost of that top of the line gear. It's gear I bought USED and that is basic entry level equipment. The difference? Simply the skill set. 

Creativity is a learned skill... and I can teach it to you.

But it wasn't always this way.

You don't have to be a pro, or have the best equipment to take beautiful photos of your kids.

Student results

You just have to have the right skill set to maximize your camera, and tell it exactly what to do for the results you are after. I've taught dozens upon dozens of moms how to take beautiful photos of their kids, like Emily, who with the exact same camera went from camera frustration to taking beautiful, professional looking pictures of her daughter.

Frequently Asked Questions

Will I need to buy a bunch of equipment to do the course?

No! It's not the gear, it's the skills! You'll need a DSLR or Mirrorless camera, and one nice prime lens to achieve the results promised in the course. Don't worry, I'll tell you exactly what to get once you're in!

Can't I just google camera tutorials and learn as I go?

You definitely can. There is a TON of information out there you can sift through if you have the time. But my guess is that's likely what you've done thus far, and it's just not leading to REAL, tangible results. You need a step-by-step system you can implement, and you need to cut out the noise and learn exactly what you need to know to start taking beautiful photographs with a certain stylistic goal in mind. That's exactly what we do in The Frame-Worthy Photo Course.

Do I have to have kids to take this course?

Definitely not! While the course was designed with busy moms in mind, the content is relevant for anyone interested in learning how to use their fancy camera. We have a few bloggers in the course learning great tips to take better photos for business. All the material and information will still apply, no matter who or what your subject is! Just be ready for lots of cute baby spam throughout the course

I'm not creative or artsy. Can this course really teach me to take beautiful photos?

First of all, I don't believe this lie about you for even a second. Second, I have a degree in Finance and a 7 year history of working in insurance - it doesn't exactly SCREAM creative background, does it? But now I make a full time living in a creative field. I never considered myself a creative person, but it turns out with the help of some rules and systems anyone can be creative!
