Do you remember sitting and looking through your grandparents or parents photo albums? And then talking about each moment as you flipped through the pages?
We have this constant desire to document what’s going on around us. Do you ever look back through your photos (usually the ones on your phone) and remember what was really going on in that moment? It might have been a rough day… It could have very well been an awful day… yet for some reason unknown at the time, you were compelled to “snap” a photo. And it’s those moments that you look back on and think, I’m so glad I decided to take this picture.
Maybe you want to learn to take better photos because photography has always fascinated you or you’ve always loved taking pictures. I get that. I always wanted to be a good painter… unfortunately my paintings never looked the way I pictured them in my head! Yet when I learned how to use my camera and allow the light to be my “paint” and my camera to be my brush, it opened up a new way for me to create.
I love watching my children play while the light dances around their sweet youthful cheeks. Capturing that joy that is bubbling out into a brook of laughter! And I can’t stop marveling at the joy that is beaming down from the beautiful light above.
I would love for you to come hangout with me for the morning! I want to show you how to document your days. These days are a gift! And these moments, don’t last.

“My daughter loved and learned so much from Alaina’s photography class. Alaina gently and patiently teaches her students how to make the most of their DSLR cameras producing beautiful photos and memories. As a mom I’m grateful my daughter can record her future though photos as she continues to develop her photography skills. Thank you Alaina for serving our youth and teaching lifelong skills.”K.W.
