Children grow up so quickly! 

Do you love photography but are often disappointed with blurred images, harsh shadows and missed moments? 

Or perhaps sometimes you get a stunning shot that you're really proud of. But when you want to replicate it you realise you're not actually sure how you did it!

The good news is, there are proven easy ways to improve your photography and I can show you how!

I'm Rosie - an award winning professional photographer with ten years experience and mum to triplets and a baby. I definitely know how difficult it is to get good shots of children!

But there are key ways you can improve your photography so that you can be sure to get a beautiful photo every time.

In this short course, (which is suitable for any camera from DSLRs to cameraphones) I've packed it full of my best photography techniques and tips using any camera, even on auto mode.

I'll take you through the key creative areas that you need to understand to take beautiful photos every time. After each session you'll get to put your new photography skills into practise with a fun challenge (and if you wish you can share your results with myself and the other students for feedback in the VIP Facebook group, only available to students)!

In the second part of the course you are also invited to come along with me on shoots with my own friends and family. 

Watch me photograph a birthday party, Father's Day and rainy activities at home like baking and crafting. You'll get to experience my thought process as I take each photograph so that you can gain confidence wherever your camera takes you!


This starter course has all the techniques you need to know before even thinking about learning the technical side of photography. 

After this course you'll feel confident to:

Take gorgeous photos on bright sunny days

Be able to find the best light 

Know where to stand when taking photos with natural light indoors

How to use the rules of composition to make your photos look more artistic

And be able to bring out genuine love, joy and affection in your subjects to make stunning photos that really show the true person.
