Beginner’s Photography Workshop
If you’ve ever looked at the LCD on your expensive, new camera like, “I wish I knew how to use this thing better,” keep reading. Imagine creating a photo that takes you back to those favorite moments with your children that seemed like yesterday.
These are the photos that are on my walls and it feels amazing to glance at my favorite memories daily. I want to teach you how to create photos that you’re proud to hang on your walls!
With the new year here, it’s my goal to give you the skills you need to have better images to look back on than you have from last year. I will help train your eyes to become like little shutters and make you more confident in using your DSLR, or even your camera phone, so you can quickly execute that shot to remember when in the moment.
With limited classes, these seats will sell out quickly. The first class sold out within hours! Reserve your seat today! (Please note that you can pick one date or the other— the workshop fee does not cover your attendance at both workshops.)

What this 4 hour Workshop is about:
Easy to implement today topics such as light, composition, seeing photo opportunities, and discovering the things you want to capture - all things you can do without camera knowledge to improve your photos fast
Why shoot in manual mode? Explanation of the exposure triangle: Shutter, Aperture, ISO
Hands-on shooting to implement what you’ve learned
“Behind the scenes” — tips and tricks Rachel uses to get the best shots & Q&A
Bring your own photos from home to critique
Overcoming, ‘But my kid won’t let me take their photo!’ Taking candid photos to evoke memories and tell a story.
6-8 ladies max to allow for ample time for each individual. This class is paired best with your bestie & comfy sweat pants. If this date doesn’t work for you, consider hosting your own workshop with me and earn your seat for free. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to set it up.
Fun! We’ll laugh, you’ll learn, and most importantly, you’ll walk away with a better understanding of how to photograph those everyday memories of your family.
What this class isn’t:
This workshop is not about the business end of photography or how to start your photography business.
This workshop does not cover post-processing techniques. I recommend a one on one mentoring session with me for editing help.
This workshop does not cover posing or prop/backdrop set ups. My goal is to shoot very candid, documentary story-telling images, so that is what’s taught.
New friendships with other area photography enthusiasts
Invitation to private Facebook group for Workshop Attendees for support, questions, photo challenges, & to post photos showing off

Whether you are a beginner photographer and want to learn your camera better or you’ve been doing photography for years and want to really make your images POP, spend 1:1 time with Rachel getting all your questions answered as well as receiving hands on shooting experience. Mentorships are tailored to the needs of each individual and may include technical instruction, shooting, post processing, and more— I’m an open book! We will meet at a local coffee shop for discussion and I’ll line up some models so you get practical application shooting. Since every mentorship is different, please email Rachel for pricing.
