Photography Class: PhotoMoms.

Don't be fooled by the title, this class is not just for moms, it's for anyone who wants to capture everyday memories like a pro. You don't need to go out and buy crazy gear for this one, it's all about learning to use the equipment you already have (point and shoot, dslr, disposable, whatever) to get the most out of your everyday photography.

Topics Covered:

  • basic lighting
  • basic composition
  • photographing children
  • I'll share a system for photographing birthday parties, sporting events, family reunions YOU NAME IT like a pro
  • basic post processing: including free editing software and how to use it
Date and Time:
  • Regular classes: April 2nd, 9th and 16th (7-8pm).
  • Bonus: come shadow me on a real shoot! Observe me in action. Saturday April 18th 9:00am. I'll think aloud as I conduct a real portrait session.
Class Location:
  • Laie: exact location TBA
  • Cost for this workshop is $110. A $50 non-refundable retainer is due upfront to reserve your space and balance is due in full at least 1 week prior to the first class. Class will cap at 20 students so register today.
Email me at natalienorton{at}gmail{dot}com to reserve your space.

Natalie, is your class full? This sounds like it will be so much fun. If I am not able to make this class, when will the next one be offered?

It would be an awfully long trip, but sounds like a great class. :-)

Hey Natalie I am Tauni West (Reicherts) little sister Carly. I have really been interested in taking photography classes but can't seem to find anything around here it Utah County. Have you considered doing a workshop the next time you are out this way? By the way I love the tips you have been leaving on your blog. You do amazing work and your boys are so dang cute!

Hi! Yes, I think I will be doing a class next time I'm in UT. I don't know exactly when I'll be in town, but am hoping to come in March. We'll see. In the mean time, we may be setting up a webinar type class as so many people have expressed interest from all over the world.

Keep checking the blog for more information. And please tell Tauni hello from me!!
