When I picked up a camera, I started to see the world differently. I found joy in the journey of capturing images of life and beauty around me, and it actually changed the course of my future. Now I'm a photographer, teacher and certified life coach.

I'll help you increase your creativity, connect with people, and I'll get you shooting beautiful photos in no time! Whether you just have the camera on your phone, or a "big" camera, this is for you. No experience or special equipment is necessary.
