Giving

I’m in this mode of giving so far this year.

I’ve been giving away that which I have lots of … Pictures. So I’ve been turning it into a game on my facebook fan page. Mainly a lot of guessing games.

Here’s a big one and it’s a prize that doesn’t go to just one person. But to the first 15-20 ppl that make it happen.

Blogger Mom

I know sometimes you people laugh when they’re applying the title of soccer mom or now days blogger mom. I’m not a mom, I’ve never even been married and my own mom doesn’t even have a blog (she does have facebook)

I believe strongly in:

  • family
  • memories
  • art
  • photography
  • developing relationships

Mommy-Photographer

You’ll have to excuse the many people in my profession that sometimes give you a bad rap or just don’t understand.

You want the best pictures that portray the best memories that which you can put on your wall and be proud of and stir up the best emotions.

There’s many reasons you get your cameras out yourselves, and I support them.

There’s many reasons you buy a nice camera like mine, and I support them.

Because you do, you find yourselves taking pictures for other people, and I understand how and why.

Now I know what my work with photography, specially in the area of Family Lifestyle and portraits is able to do.

But I know that I can’t be there all the time with every amazing thing that happens in the family.

But you will be there!

So document it… and then try to get always better at that documenting.

I WILL HELP

I’ve taught lots of photographers wanting to get better at photography and probably a majority of them wanting to turn it into a career.

This next class I want to be for you guys… the ones documenting the lives of your own families.

Photography is very very expensive and so can good classes be pretty expensive.

But this should be free.

The Class

I am going to be gone much of the last part of the month and again in February. So I should do this soon.

Jan 13th – 7:00 (because your spouse should be home by then and we can do a 90 minute class and get you home so you are in bed early enough to get up when they get up)

SUBJECT: All the basics you need to know about taking a good picture, for instance what a good picture should look like.

What to bring: Something to take notes on. Whatever camera big or small.

Posts should be written by lets say Monday Night (Think FHE, heck have your kid write it, if they’re old enough, or youtube them)

This is your first lesson in photography: BE CREATIVE – Think outside the norm

If you follow the options below you are invited. Bring some treats or even real food. It’s gonna be relaxed.

Lehi Utah – Hit me up on FB for the address.

To qualify?

Be a parent who loves taking pictures of your children

Step One:

Write a blog post talking about why photography is important to your family. (If you don’t have a blog I can post a write up for you on mine or you can do it as a FB note)

Subjects to consider for writing.

An important moment in your own life related to photography.

Why photography is an important aspect in the raising of your own children.

Philosophize about the connections of memories and pictures.

What you think these pictures will mean to your kids when they’re older.

Why do you take pictures?

Why do you have pictures taken of your families?

Why do you have family pictures on your wall?

STEP TWO:

Link back to this post so that others can read about it and have the chance. If it becomes popular I might do it again.

STEP THREE:

Post a link to your write up in the comment section of this post so I can give you credit for the free class

Of the Many Thoughts

Though I have many many more reasons why I think photography is important, but I’ll hold off on most of them and allow you to be creative and write your own ideas.

However I will say my memory is such that I don’t remember 99% of my childhood. I don’t remember any of the early years until almost 8. And what few memories I have are usually because there is a picture associated with it… so you can understand how it fits me.

What you’re doing in raising your children is so very important, I love seeing great pictures that document the personalities and the memories.
I love taking those pictures though I understand for many families taking their own pictures is the only economic route they know.

If there were 5 of me (without 5 of me to support) I’d be over there in a jiff to take pictures for everyone :)

A Gift to Photographers

This is to inform my photographer friends that they can be a part of the Charitable shoot on Tuesday 28th as one of my weekly events

To learn more and to be a part you have to go here to the facebook group event

Good op because my charitable shoot is the first week of October but it’ll be booked up with past brides and grooms and other invitees.

I SHOOT YOU
– (In the Face)
Ergo Tuesday 28th I will do an evening where everyone can show up and I’ll do what I’m gonna do that next week… but for all y’all.

So bring your family or like pets and your nice clothes or just come like me… sans personne.

WORKSHOP-ISH

I will also turn it into a type of workshop:

  • I will say why I pick a spot and how I use it.
  • I’ll tell why I’m placing them where I’m placing them.
  • what settings I’m using.
  • I’ll use reflectors, diffusers and flash and explain what’s going on there.

Basically just say what’s going on in my brain while I shoot you guys.

ORGANIZATION of Shoots

I don’t promise immaculate organization but it will be lots of learning.If you have a group that is coming then I suggest we give you an order to be shot in. For the individual shots we’ll just throw you in.

From 5:20 every 20 minutes we’ll try to rotate.

This is a free shoot, however I’m not doing discs. You can use them for blogs and facebook as much as you’d like.
Pictures will be available online where you can order prints or just purchase the print rights so you can do whatever.

You can just come and learn… because this is another Tuesday class.

For more info and a FAQ and for updates for when I have the location go to the FACEBOOK EVENT
