I've heard it over and over again:

  • I have a "fancy camera" but I don't know how to use it.

  • I rarely pick up my DSLR because I can take better photos with my iPhone.

  • I'm great at photographing objects, but my toddler is always a blurry mess when I try to take a picture with my DSLR!

  • I’m so disappointed with the results from my “fancy camera!”

The 5 Days to Better Photos FREE Course!

Day 1 - What’s the deal with automatic mode?

We'll discuss the truth about automatic mode, and have you on your way to being the BOSS of your camera, rather than letting it be the boss of you!

Day 2 - Composition Quick Fix

Composition has to do with how we position our subject within the photo frame when snapping a photo. I’ll teach you how to fix the 2 BIG mistakes you’re probably making when it comes to composition! These two fixes alone will elevate your photography game big time!

Day 3 - Fixing Unwanted BluR

You’re probably seeking that beautiful blurry background that professionals get in their images, but maybe all you’re getting is a blurry MESS of a toddler in your photos, with hands ghosting through your picture. I’ll teach you how to fix that in this lesson!

Day 4 - Capturing Candids

In this lesson, we’ll ditch the cheesy smiles at the camera, and talking about capturing candids - your first step in capturing beautiful photos of your everyday life!

Day 5 - The Truth about gear

Think you need a bunch of fancy gear to get good photos? I’m debunking this long believed in myth about photographing, and finally letting you in on the truth about what it takes to get great photos!

Mama, I've been in your shoes. It took me YEARS of trial, error, and random internet tutorials to finally understand how to use my DSLR. It wasn't until a few years ago that it finally CLICKED and I understood how to capture consistently beautiful photographs. As a mom to a little girl who is growing all too fast, I'm on a mission to help mama's skip the frustrating trial and error stage, and teach them how to use their camera in a simple, easy to understand way.

Meet Your Teacher


I'm Courtney - a professional family and newborn lifestyle photographer, but most importantly, mom to a sweet baby girl named James.

Since it's very beginning, my professional photography career has been dedicated to the beauty of family. Since the moment my daughter was born, I've been obsessed with documenting our life with beautiful photographs.

Years from now, I envision my children home for Christmas, sitting in our living room and flipping through our treasured family "yearbooks", reliving their story and having tangible proof of our family's roots in love and faith.

It is my passion and purpose to empower other mom's to be their family's storyteller, and to master their cameras to create a legacy for their family to enjoy for year's to come.
