That's when she asked me, "Okay. Can I really learn how to use my camera in your workshop?" And it hit me. If a close friend was asking this, maybe more of you have the same question. My answer? "Without a doubt." Wait, back up. The start of that story....
This past week, I was finally able to have a play date with one of my dear friends. Her youngest is Milo's age and it is so much fun for them to play together. As the boys played she was asking me some camera questions. While I happily gave her tips, I had to be honest with her. "These are great questions. But they will take a little longer then just trying to show you as we watch our kids," I told her. Plus, Milo is potty training so we had many breaks racing to the bathroom. I so wanted to help in every way that I can. But it just wasn't going to happen in an hour and a half, with kids in tow.
And that brings us back to her asking me "Can I really learn how to use my camera in your workshop?" We came inside and I showed her my latest postcard design for the workshop. I showed her a before and after for one of my past workshop attendees.
Not only are her "afters" so beautiful, but I learned that this past workshop attendee was asked by a friend to capture her newborn!
Now let's be honest. My workshop isn't the cheapest out there, but you know what. It's the best. I've heard of others taking courses through various colleges or schools, and they've left even more confused then when they started. Your experience at either of my workshops - Budding CONFIDENCE or Growing CONFIDENCE - will be day and night to those. You will spend the day with women similar to you, wanting to learn to capture their kids, wanting to take control of their camera so that their creativity can take over, wanting a day for themselves. And you will do all of those things. In addition to the workshop you will receive a 50 plus page workbook (not to mention all of the other fun swag)!
I hope I've answered your question, "can I really learn to use my camera in your workshop?" I took the long way to say, that I know you can.
