ShootAlong: Camera Classes for Parents

Do you ever have a feeling that you could be taking better pictures of your kiddos? Do you wish you remembered to pull your camera out more often? Are you interested in brushing up your photography skills while documenting your family? Shoot Along, a year-long photography project for parents, is here to help!

Registration Opens: April 24th

Classes Start: May 1st

Shoot Along was born the day that Amy Tripple and Heidi Peters, two Chicagoland photographers, realized they were falling behind on their goal of photographing their own families. In 2014, Amy and Heidi founded ShootAlong.com, an online photography project designed to give structure and accountability to busy parents of ALL photography levels.

What began as a personal project has grown into a powerful, worldwide movement, offering support and motivation to parents in over thirty countries and six continents! Shoot Along empowers parents in two ways:

Photography Instruction: Week-by-week photography lessons delivered by email. Learn new concepts, build on your existing skills, or embrace topics as inspiration to remain technically and creatively open-minded!

A Supportive Online Community: The Shoot Along Facebook Group is a supportive online community moderated by Deanne and Rebecca, two professional photographers. Members connect & share photography throughout the year.

Gift Cards Available for Mom's Day!

Stumped on what to get "ma" for Mother's Day??? Ok, I got ya covered!

Mom WANTS TO BE IN PHOTOS WITH HER BEAUTIFUL CHILDREN that she loves more than life itself. Trust me on this one! As mamas, most of us spend all of our time behind the lens capturing the moments to remember them when we're old and gray. It is a precious thing when we get to be featured in the photos and relish the connection we have with our little stinkers...and... look good doing it!!!

That's where I come in. Pick up a gift card, good for a future session or gallery purchase. We can schedule the date another time. But get mama something you know she would love - images to cherish WITH you.
