Learn to Capture The Snapshots of Your Life: A Photography Workshop for Women

You've been there before.  You're trying to capture an amazing moment in your life.  You whip out your camera, you press the button, you turn to see what you did, and the picture looks horrible!  It's too bright and everyone's faces are super blurry.  And there you've been, left clueless on how to make your camera work to get the shots you really want.

Why do we get all frazzled when it's time to take a picture?  I think that there are so many buttons creating unlimited options in how to take the photograph that it overwhelms us.  You just cross your fingers hoping the camera will capture the exact shot you've envisioned.  And more times than not, you're left highly disappointed with results.

But guess what?!  Taking photographs doesn't have to be such a stressful, unsatisfying experience.  There are basic photography concepts and ways to compose your photos that will truly tell the stories of  your life.  There are ways for you to approach photography that give your photos and the subjects you photograph a more relaxed feeling.

Do you want to know how to work your camera so you can finally get the snapshots you've always wanted?  You can learn how to think the shots through so you won't miss preserving those moments.

YOU can learn to capture moments like these on your camera:
 Here's what I have to offer you:

Lisa Ward fell in love with photography during her first film photography class in high school.  Her instructor pulled her aside and told her that she had an “eye” for photography.  Lisa went on to major in Photography at Brigham Young University-Idaho and Weber State University.  Her love for photography deepened after she married her college sweetheart, Sam, and they had their first baby.  Over the years, Sam has surprised Lisa with camera upgrades, the funds to continue her photography education, and the unending patience in having a wife who insists on photographing everything.  Lisa has taken digital photography courses from several masters of photography such as  Brooke Snow, MeRa Koh, Jesse Walker, Alexis Miller, and Davina Fear.  Not only is Lisa passionate about photographing young children and their families. She also loves teaching other women how to use their cameras to their full potential.  Lisa grew up in upstate New York and loves the fact that she comes from a large family.  Lisa is a wife and a mom of 4 (2 boys, 2 girls) and resides in Northern Utah.  Her work has been featured twice on MeRa Koh's blog.

Caden, Brooklyn, Chloe

Meet Brooklyn, Chloe, and Caden.
(They were singing and acting out "The Itsy Bitsy Spider").
 Caden is the big brother.  
Here he was telling me all about ice fishing with his dad.
 Brooklyn is the middle child.
 I can so relate to being the middle kid.
 I love her enthusiasm
 and sense of style.
Chloe is sweet and spunky
just as a toddler should be.
A big thank you to Connie and Jeremy for the opportunity to photograph your children.
They are so great and I loved watching them interact with each other.
You two are raising them right!
