Today I want to introduce you to a friend of mine, I met Melissa West through this blog a while back and we became fast friends! We have a lot in common, one thing being that her family is in the process of restoring a camper, they have plans to become full time travelers! She also sews, crafts, and is interested in all things natural....but one of my favorite things about her is that this chic can take some beautiful photographs and is passionate about teaching photography to others! Her approach is what makes her so unique though! She likes to teach mamas how to take beautiful pictures of their children using what they have, even if it's a camera phone! She isn't into all the confusing stuff (changing aperture, lenses, big cameras, photoshop), she just gives very common sense ways to make your pictures great TODAY, with what you have. She offers this information on her blog with tips and tricks and now she has an entire workshop available! I went through the workshop and was amazed at how much helpful information there was! Where was this workshop when Molly was born almost 12 years ago? Or when I started this blog SEVEN years ago? I know that had I had this information in the beginning it would have saved me years of aggravation. This workshop is something that I would suggest to any mama who wants to capture meaningful photos with what she already has. I think it would also be a perfect gift for new mamas or grandmas!
Now for the best part, Melissa wants me to give this workshop to one lucky person for free!
