“Grab a pen, notebook and get ready to learn!! Artist Mom does an awesome job teaching you how to dig deeper and learn how to take great quality photos using your phone. This is especially important to me. I have two different dslr cameras; but find that I have my phone with me always, so taking quality photos with it just makes sense. You will want to take notes and practice, practice, practice!! Already looking forward to the next workshop!!” -Paige

“This is a helpful course for iPhone users looking for practical tips for taking great photos. @fostermoms offers an accessible, how-to session, and I'm looking forward to applying what I learned to my photos.” -Kimberly

“I’m so grateful Artist Mom put this workshop together. I've admired her photographs for a long time and was curious about some of the tricks she used to capture childhood so purely and creative. It was also inspiring to learn how to photograph my child in a non-invasive way and to learn more about documenting than posing. There is so much packed into the hour, I'm really excited for this resource!” 

“This was a super helpful workshop! Prior to the workshop, I'd take a photo of something beautiful, realize that none of my filters looked good, wonder what I was doing wrong, and discard the edited version out of frustration. I now have so many more tools to help edit my photos. The course is very high quality, but also feels personal and personable. Artist mom is a skilled photographer and an equally gifted teacher.” -Anonymous

“Thoroughly enjoyed the workshop. Relaxed, easy to follow and informative. Not only has it improved my technical knowledge and photographs, it also got me to consider how and when I actually take photographs and how I can make this less obtrusive for my daughter and capture more of her true personality. Will definitely sign up for the next one.”  -Collette

“Very informative workshop! Motivated me to take my photography skills to the next level.”
