OR MAYBE YOU'RE ALREADY A PHOTOGRAPHER, BUT STRUGGLE TO GET YOUR PHOTOS RIGHT ALL THE TIME?

taking beautiful pictures IS HARD.

HAVE TO BE!

It takes regular practice, in little bits of time that FIT into your busy life, with A TEACHER AVAILABLE TO HELP!

I Want That!

But cloudy days, bright sunlight, hazy sunset, dark backgrounds, light backgrounds, splotchy shade...that stuff is really hard. It takes more than just one class or a little reading to master.

First, I was a mom.  And I was obsessed with capturing EVERY MOMENT with our new baby.

WHAT IF YOU COULD FINALLY

SO WE BOUGHT A "FANCY CAMERA"...
AND IT WAS SO HARD TO TAKE EVEN SEMI-DECENT PHOTOS!

I spent almost a full year on google trying to learn every detail.  And it took forever, and I wasted so much time and lost so many memories! 



What started as a class for moms turned into a 24-module course for women who want take gorgeous images in any situation and build a successful business that can support their lives!

This course is my exact shooting system  for how I built a 6-figure photography business while working part time and being home with my kids!
 

 7 years, 3 babies, 100s of photography students, and 80 weddings later...
 I created a course so other people didn't have to go through that struggle.

I spent almost a full year on google trying to learn every detail. And it took forever, and I wasted so much time and lost so many memories!

I can't even express how thankful I am for Jill and for her knowledge, support, and guidance throughout the Photo U."

Want to learn my top tips (given in the style of a Photo U lesson) for taking great lifestyle photos?

This is just the tiniest sneak peek of what each module's content is like!  Each module is focused on a specific topic and students watch a 30-60 minute instructional video of me either teaching to the camera while shooting like this or going through educational slides to teach you all the details about the topic!

9 years ago he came into this world and completely changed our lives.  And something that was once a slight interest became a necessity for me...I had to figure out how to capture it all...exactly as it felt!

This is my sweet family and that far-too-tall-for-my-liking boy in front? He was MY reason to learn to use my camera in a more meaningful way.

the heart behind it all

I spent a year long maternity leave teaching myself (with the help of trusty Google) how to use my camera and practicing non-stop.  I figured it out...but it took SO MUCH LONGER THAN IT NEEDED TO!

There was no road map for me, no path to make it easier, no one to guide me through the questions and challenges and things I needed to know.

Because I taught for 8 years before staying home with these 3 babies, teaching is a huge part of me.

Which is why I want to be YOUR road map, guide, and teacher.  I know how to make the complex both simple and fun.  And I know how to teach you to take amazing photos and eventually create a business that gives your life the freedom and flexibility mine has given to us!

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

NEXT QUESTION

Q: What exactly will be covered as topics in the course?

A. The course includes 24 modules covering everything you need to know to be able to take beautiful photos in any situation: lighting, composition, style, intro to editing, story telling, camera settings, etc.  Each module is focused on a specific topic so students can learn and practice 1 concept before moving on to another.

Q: I don't have a DSLR (or maybe even know what one is)...is this for me?

A: This class is for anyone who wants to learn photography with ANY type of camera!!  We will discuss topics that are more applicable to cameras that can change lenses (DSLR or mirrorless cameras), BUT anyone with a digital camera or even a good iPhone and some creativity could benefit from this course!  It may make you want a "fancy camera" in the future though!!

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Q: Is this course for people who want to start a BUSINESS or for people who just love photographing?

A: This class is for BOTH.  We will not be covering specific running-a- business topics in this course, but ALL of the topics covered are topics that photographers with a business would need to know!  It is definitely for a hobbyist/someone who just loves taking pictures, or a mom ready to up-level her hobby and turn it into a business! We will be covering topics all related to actually using your camera to take great pictures!

Q. Do you teach about the steps to actually start a business as well?

A. I do!  Each year, I teach a Coaching Program called the Photo U Business Builder to my Photo U students for those who want to learn how to turn their new awesome camera skills into a thriving business! My goal is for these students to have a business officially launched and making money throughout the 6 months of the program!  I also am working on content now for future Business Bootcamps on more specialized business topics- email me if interested in any of these offerings and I can make sure you get all the info!

Q: What will I get/see in each module?

A: Students will be a part of a course site where they get full access to all 24 modules and can access each as they want! Each module's content consists of a 30-60+ minute video (either with me photographing and talking to the camera about what I'm doing, photographing while I'm working with clients, or teaching in my office/from my computer depending on what the topic calls for), a supplemental PDF or worksheet to go along with the video, and an online live Bonus Q+A (with replay after, because again, I understand #reallife!) with student questions.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Q: I have never used my camera before--is this course for me or is it for my friend who has used her camera for years on Manual?

A: This membership is for you BOTH!  I start basic--but it will very quickly turn into content that could improve any photographer wherever they are in their journey.  As for the early content for someone who is advanced, a review of the basics, followed by seeing what settings and preferences another photographer has is always helpful!

NEXT QUESTION

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Q: I have taken a live workshop or Photography for Moms 101 with you. Is this still for me?

A: Yes, my friend! In fact, I created it just with you in mind! After seeing how HELPFUL it was for some of my students to take my workshop a second time a few years ago, it inspired me to create a way where everyone could learn this content --shooting in manual, shooting with great style and lighting and composition-- over and over again in each module! This isn't the sort of topic you learn once and master--it takes recurring guidance and practice! The workshop content is just 1 module's worth of content in this course!
