Oh Snap Logo

Do you have a dSLR camera and want to learn how to take great photos of your kids?

Are you tired of or don’t have the time to read the technical manuals that don’t answer the basic question: How do I take a better picture?

Do your photos sit on your camera card for months or when downloaded are disorganized in your photo library?

Oh Snap! is a workshop that teaches parents how to take better pictures of their kids.  It focuses on concepts that you can put easily into practice, just by understanding lighting, composition, perspective, and age appropriate techniques.  Participants will walk away with an incredible presentation manual that include cheat sheets and quick tips for common situations which will help them improve their photos immediately…just by taking the time to asses light, change up their angle and remember a few quick tips.

“I have been wanting to take a photography class and Maria’s Oh Snap! Workshop was exactly what I was looking for. It was an interactive class for the few hours I could steal away in Maria’s beautiful home. An intimate class, with hands-on help and lots of opportunities to ask questions. I came away more comfortable with my camera and knowledge how to take better photos of my friends & family! Thank You, Maria! Looking forward to taking another class to go the next step further.” ~ Lindsey V.
