    Getting to this point wasn’t easy…

    When I became a mom, I used my phone to take pictures like every other second of my little guy. I didn't want to miss documenting one moment!

    I have always loved photography but there was something about becoming a mother that accelerated my passion for it. Photos were becoming increasingly more important to me as I realized how fast time was going. I especially wanted to get good photos of my parents and grandma with my little baby. I knew these would be cherished forever!

    However, I wasn't satisfied with the quality of these photos. They just felt blah! I couldn't put my finger on what was "wrong" with them. I just wanted better photos without the expensive price tag of hiring a photographer every time I wanted to capture something important.

    So I purchased a DSLR camera!

    To my surprise, it actually made things much worse! The camera had so many buttons and my photos looked no different and sometimes even worse then on my phone.

    So I tried…

    Reading the manual (but that was like reading a foreign language)

    Watching every tutorial video under the sun to try to figure it all out (but that just lead me down a rabbit hole of endless videos and wasting a lot of time; progress was little to none)

    Joining photography facebook groups (but people were not always very kind and I felt too insecure to ask questions)

    Tucking the fancy camera away in the closet and going back to using my phone (but I still wasn't satisfied with my photos)

    Then I had baby #2 and I was more determined than ever to learn how use my camera.

    And that's when it hit me!

    If I want to stop missing the moments, I needed to invest in myself.

    I was so engrossed in being a mom that I had stopped doing things for myself and quite frankly didn't want to spend any money on myself. For some reason I felt guilty.

    BUT when I started focusing on things that would move the needle:

    ✅Picking up my camera with intention to practice a specific skill (instead of just watching video after video with no clue what to do and never implementing anything)

    ✅Getting feedback and support from someone who was ahead of me on the journey (instead of just staring at a photo wondering what went wrong)

    ✅Becoming part of a community that supported me while challenging me to keep growing (instead of trying to do it on my own or searching for validation in the wrong Facebook groups)

    ✅Putting myself out there and practicing every opportunity I could (instead of being scared to take my camera out and being frustrated that it didn't turn out the way I imagined)

    The Best Thing??

    Now I can capture ordinary moments as they unfolded whenever I want with ease and confidence

    These simple actions literally changed my life! I am now a professional photographer and get to stay at home with my kids while I pursue my passion. I've grown a successful photography business with raving clients, been published in several magazines, and I get to help moms like you find community while continuing to grow in your photography journey.

    I continue to grow and learn each and every time I pick up my camera. I want to instill this passion and creativity in you as well! I know you can do it just like I did (but hopefully a lot faster)!
