We offer a wide range of free and low-cost classes for expectant, new and experienced mothers of newborns to toddlers. Our classes are taught by our IBCLCs or instructors that are highly qualified in their respective fields. Please register through our calendar!
Babies are always welcome to come to class! Our free classes can be crowded due to our no turn away policy; please register in advance. Due to our limited space, we ask that you leave strollers and/or carseats at home and use a baby carrier instead. If payment is a hardship, please call and ask our Program Director for options.
All of the classes described below can be taught privately one-on-one or for a small group by one of our IBCLCs or instructors.
This class is typically scheduled for the 2nd Saturday in Feb and 2nd Saturday in June. Please check class calendar for class dates and times.

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, 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:

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