Children LOVE Photography!

photography education, photography class near me, digital photography basics

When you encourage your child to take up photography, you are stimulating their self-confidence and skyrocketing their  creativity!  Learning how to see the world  through thier own inner lens they are able to evolve their unique ideas and showcase their creative thinking. Through their photographs, children tell stories they otherwise would keep silent.

I have created this 4 week long Children LOVE Photography mentorship program to assist them in finding their creative voice and gain masterful control over their camera settings so they can feel empowered to share their stories and vision with the world. Through skill building games, hands on learning and photographic journaling your child will awaken their inner Ansel Adams and have a blast learning a new artistic medium.

~Your child and I will meet for 1.5 hours every week for four weeks. This can be done at my home/studio or your home. This is totally up to them and can vary from week to week. The mentorship is individualized to meet your child's specific interests and needs. If they want to do nature photography, we can spend time outdoors in nature learning together. If they want to learn portraits, we can spend time in my studio playing around.

~The 1.5 hours we spend together will take place on four consecutive Sundays from 10-11:30 am.  If your child is unavailable at that time, lets chat to see if we can find another suitable time that works best.

~I provide a healty organic snack during their time with me. Please list any dietary restrictions/allergies and preferences when you book.

~If you are a homeschooling family, I can provide you with a curriculum overview to add to your childs quarterly reports!

~This mentorship program can be custom designed for any age child/teen ages 6-17




As a highly artistic and introverted child myself, having a camera and photography skills provided me with an empowering creative way to connect with the world around me.

Now as a homeschooling mother of three children and owner of a successful portrait studio, I am ready to give back by educating and inspiring a new generation of creative visionaries.



"Jamie is AWESOME and so much fun to spend time with! I loved the way that she played games with me that helped me to learn how to use my camera properly. Now I'm outside taking pictures almost everyday!  "
