Integrating my favorite things: photography and teaching

You scroll through Facebook, Instagram, or Pinterest. You see pictures, you might hit the like button, or you may even wonder where that girl got that shirt. Either way, the photo made you look. We are so saturated with photos nowadays. You might have stumbled on this page because you were intrigued by the idea of a "photography workshop." Or maybe you came here because you’ve been waiting for something like this for a while. Regardless of the reason, you’re here. You or someone you might know has a passion for photography. Whether you just bought a camera yesterday or if you’ve been playing around with the settings for the last couple of years, I want to meet you, I want to learn about your story, and I want to help you tell your story through pictures.

You see, learning about photography can be intimidating. I know I was intimidated by the lack of knowledge I had. I bought a camera but didn't know how to fully use it. How can other people take these gorgeous pictures when I was using the same equipment? I wanted to learn, and luckily I was able to learn little by little over the last 6 years. Looking back now, I see that introverted girl, and I want to shake her a little. I wanted to tell her,

"You could have made it easier on yourself if you just asked for help!" 

Photography Rising has been on my mind and heart for the last two years. I’ve had some sweet individuals ask for some help in their photography journey, and I’ve finally allowed myself time to create a workshop for aspiring photographers to share my little nuggets of knowledge.

More importantly, this just isn't any workshop. I want to cultivate an encouraging community for photographers or just regular people that want to take better pictures. This goes beyond a one day event. This is a family
