The day I became a memory keeper
Buy a good camera, they said. It’ll be fun, they said. What the heck does this button do? Well I guess I’ll read the manual and learn how to use the camera tomorrrow. Next week. Next month. Crap! Now the baby is born and I’ll never have a chance to read that manual. Oh well, automatic will be fine. But why are my photos not looking like the ones I see on Pinterest?! All I want is one cute photo!! This thing is so overwhelming and frustrating. I have no clue where to even start! And when will I find the time to read that manual?! Oh look - A photography workshop all about taking good photos of your kids using a fancy camera! Sign me up!
The day I attended your workshop was the day I became a memory keeper. I knew taking a photo with a good quality camera would give me nicer photos versus the dark and blurry iPhone. But never did I know that in three short hours and joining a community of photography mommas, I could turn my camera from automatic to manual and produce beautiful images of my daughter I only dreamed of!
To become a memory keeper, you need a great teacher. Emily is able to break down confusing photography terms into easy to understand information using hands on camera demonstrations, video tutorials and examples of her own photos. Emily’s knowledge for photography makes it easy to ask questions and her passion for taking photos of her own family is contagious. Who wouldn’t want to give your family memories they can cherish forever?
The day I became a memory keeper was the day I took a photo of my daughter and proudly hung it on my wall. Yes, it was scary to go from automatic to manual. Yes, it took a lot of practice and I took hundreds of photos I didn’t like. But Emily’s ongoing support kept me motivated to want to do better. Every challenge that was posted forced me out of my comfort zone and made me learn something new.
The day I became a memory keeper was when I took a beautiful photos of my friend’s baby. What a gift it is to give a friend a memory that will last forever.
I know I still have lots to learn and so many more photos to take. But I am so so glad I signed up for your photography workshop. I am a memory keeper and it is all thanks to you!
