Photos You Adore :: Workshops to rock your camera
If you’ve ever looked at your photos on your expensive, new camera and thought to yourself, “I just spent all that money and I’m still on Auto?”, then keep reading.
If you’ve ever looked back for #throwbackthursday at some photos of your kids when they were babies, and you’ve thought to yourself, “Why did I have my kid in that basket?”, then just keep reading!
Imagine looking on the back of your camera at a beautifully composed photo that captures the very most unique thing about your child or loved one. Now imagine having the image printed in a family album, or a print hung on the wall. These are photos I have on my walls and on my shelves in prints and albums that allow me to relive in an instant the most precious memories I have. I want to teach you how to rock your camera to create photos YOU adore!
I will help train you to become more confident in using your DSLR so you can quickly capture the moment before it turns into a memory.

Brittany C: I signed up for Meghan’s photography workshop because I wanted to learn how to use my camera to take better pictures of my family. I took another class a few years ago but left it feeling more confused than when I had started. That was not the case with Meghan’s workshop! She helped me one on one figure out how my unique camera operated. She gave me tools to take home and refer to, helping me practice my new skills. The day after class I was already at the park with my kids taking more meaningful, better composed pictures. Meghan also showed me the importance of taking pictures of candid, everyday tasks and details as memories can fade. Pictures remind us of the things we don’t want to forget. With Meghan’s Facebook group I am getting the chance to stay connected to her and to my learnings. With regular tips and assignments to participate in I will continue learning even after the class is over!
Lindsey C: I thought it was a great class. I really didn’t know much going into it so I definitely walked away with a lot more knowledge.
