Are you struggling to capture the images you want?

With all of the things to learn, it can be overwhelming and confusing not knowing where or how to start. From gear to settings, editing to posing, and how to use light or choose the perfect location...

"I'm overwhelmed and don't know where to start."

"Photoshop and Lightroom is SOOO confusing!"

"I don't know what settings to use on my camera."

"Why don't my photos look like those other photographer's photos?"

~Does this sound like you?

You're not alone. These are the exact same questions I was asking myself not that long ago.

Take it from someone who's been there and had to figure it out the hard way!

Let me answer all of your questions and hold your hand along the way...

My 'Watch Me Edit' classes take you every step of the way through the editing process using the most popular editing software, Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom CC,
but it doesn't stop there.

I talk about my location, the gear I used, my exact settings, how I used the natural light, my thought process on the compositions, and most importantly, not just how, but why.
