I'm a mom and a photographer and I understand how much we want to be able to document our kids lives without having to hire a professional photographer for every little moment or wishing one would pop up magically when it's 7:15am and our kids are being ridiculously hilarious or adorable.  That's why I teach this class.


I'll be offering several photography classes for parents this fall, 2016.

Frequently Asked Questions

Where are the classes held?
In general, the classes are held in my home in Cool Springs.  If the class is big enough, we will move to a conference room or restaurant.

What IS a DSLR anyway?
The term "DSLR" stands for "Digital Single Lens Reflex." It's a camera that is made up of a body and lenses that are interchangeable.  Some popular DSLRs are: Canon Rebel XS, Canon EOS Rebel T3i, Canon EOS 60D, Nikon D60, Nikon D3100, Nikon D90, Nikon D7000, Sony A390, Pentax K-X and others.

Do I have to own a DSLR to come to the class?  What about a point-and-shoot/DSLR hybrid?
The Sweet Shots classes are taught in a very hands-on way.  For that reason, you'll definitely want to have either a DSLR or a DSLR hybrid with you when you attend.  A camera that allows you to change the settings for your ISO, aperture and shutter speed is important.

What should I bring to the class?
Definitely your DSLR!  In addition, is a great idea to bring a notebook, a pen, your camera's user manual and any extra lenses, flashes or accessories that you have.

Do I need any other equipment other than a DSLR to come to the class?
Nope! Just bring what your already have.  I'll give tips and suggestions for additional lenses and accessories.

Can my spouse come for free?
Unfortunately, no.  The class sizes are limited and I therefore plan for every seat to be filled by a paying attendee.

Can I bring my kids?  What about nursing infants?
I LOVE little ones!  However, since the class is so in-depth and packed with great information, it's not a very enjoyable environment for children and could keep you from soaking in all the good stuff.  Nursing newborns are welcome, though, and there is a private area for you to nurse if you're more comfortable that way.

What if I sign up but can't make it?  Can I get a refund?
Refunds aren't given for the Sweet Shots Classes, but you are welcome to transfer your spot to a friend to reschedule for another date within a six month period.
