I see your nodding.

You have 10k+ pictures on your phone, and you have no idea what to do with them. (Go look at how many are there. You going to be shocked!)

You get super stressed out trying to get a good back-to-school/holiday/special occasion photos because - let’s be honest - those photos are as stressful and rushed as back-to-school, holidays, and special occasions. You just want to be present for these moments and not behind the camera! 

You invested in a (or “borrowed” your mom’s) fancy camera, and you have no clue how to use it.

           If your phone gets lost/broken/stolen, what would happen to all of those photos? #goneforever

Maybe you’ve felt like this...

sound familiar?

and ooh!

You have photos of you family that are too good not to share on the 'gram.

The walls in your home are decorated with those sweet moments that only a mom gets to experience.

You have a shelf full of family albums filled with memories you captures (and this is no doubt the first thing you will grab if your house is on fire!)

picture this...

Yes, all the things... from the 'gram, to the walls, to albums filled with photos YOU took! It's possible!

How it Works

There are 3 parts to MPS

We address the huge problem you literally add to every single day when you take a photo- you camera roll. Let's get our photos organized and backed-up. I will be showing you "tricks of the trade" from a professional photographer who's favorite subjects are her children.


Of course, taking better photos is where it all starts! In MPS, we discuss photography topics that moms actually care about. Like, how to take better photos in terrible lighting conditions and how to get your kids to actually enjoy being in front of the camera.  


With our gorgeous photos, we first post them on the 'gram because... who wouldn't be proud?!  In MPS, we also make sure to get them off of the internet and on your walls and in albums.

This is the "fruit" of your labor. This is what you will be clinging to for years to come and think, "I'm so glad I took those photos!"

If it has to do with a camera, I’m your girl! (I’m also your girl if you need a good Starbucks drink recommendation in the morning and a good red wine recommendation in evening. I got you, sister.)
With two teaching certifications under my belt, I have taken the complicated subject of using a camera and broken it down into parts that you can actually understand - unlike that basic photography book you purchased. (Yeah, no. It’s awful. And it can make even a seasoned photographer say, “What?!”) 

I believe in family. #boymom

I believe it all starts and ends with family and that moms have a front-row seat. (The driver’s seat, that is.) I believe the slow and mundane of the family’s rhythm is beautiful and worthy of documentation. I believe in the sisterhood of motherhood and sharing wisdom with each other.

hey, y'all!

I believe every family has a story worth capturing. Let's capture yours.

-  you are sick of paying (undisclosed amount of money) for an outfit you know your child is only going to wear once and you want good photos of them in it.

- you've gone to YouTube or a basic photo book for help and it confused you even more.

- you want photos that are 'gram worthy and wall worthy and you don't know where to start.

- You have a camera and want to use it to its full potential.

You don't want to let another milestone go by undocumented.

How to know if MPS is right for you:



frequently asked

I’m always so happy to hear this question because I can so relate. This membership is designed to not add to your already busy schedule but to seamlessly fit into it. I know one thing for SURE if you are reading this: you’re most likely a mom. The assignments were created to complement your family time together, not to take away from it. You will be taking photos of your kids while they are doing things they would be doing anyways- t-ball games, playing outside, going to get ice cream. You can complete the lesson in less time than it takes to watch one episode of Gilmore Girls.

Can you take the lens off and on on your camera? And is there some sort of screen on the back that lets you preview the photo? Then you are good! A good camera does NOT make a good photographer. Only because I am a professional photographer and my camera literally helps my family pay bills, I have a super expensive fancy camera. If I were to hand that camera to my husband, it would be worthless to him. He cannot use it, just as he cannot use a $400 camera from Target. The best camera is the one you have in your hand!

No, worries! You can cancel your monthly membership anytime. Yearly and lifetime subscriptions are none refundable.

 I have been able to capture amazing photos of them doing everyday things, and they are hang-on-the-wall kind of photos. One of the best things about Mastering Manual Mode is you are NEVER behind. No matter how busy your life is, you can take it at your own pace.”

I have been able to take professional quality photos of my boys!
