Do you want to take better pictures of your own family? Have you ever wondered what the secrets are to capturing “the” moment? Then this Snap Happy: Photography 101 is just the class for you! Julie Kubal, a professional photographer who specializes in working with babies, children, and families (see her photos displayed in Classroom A), will share with you some simple strategies to get you happy with your snapshots (hint: understanding lighting is KEY!).

We will touch on the following topics:

  • organizing and preserving your memories
  • discovering the Five Steps to getting Snap Happy
  • learning to find and utilize natural lighting
  • composing an amazing shot

The class is designed to help amateur photographers take better snapshots to tell their life’s story. All you will need is a camera (a DSLR is NOT required) and desire to create beautiful family memories. You will walk away with the skills to actually like what you see on the back of your camera, plus a whole lot more!

NOTE: This is an adults-only class, and no childcare will be offered on-site. Newborns and nursing infants may certainly attend, however.
