Mommy Take My Picture

Is your fancy DSLR camera still in auto mode, just like it was when you first took it out of the box? Are you frustrated that the photographs you’ve taken of your kids haven’t improved since you bought it? Then this workshop is for you!


Gina will help you beautifully capture those fleeting moments of your life while learning everything you need to know about photographing with your DSLR.


Grab 3-5 friends that are also hoping to learn more about photography and plan a girls night. The host will benefit from learning the light in their own home as well as a session fee waived for a future family shoot with Gina.


In the 3-hour workshop, we’ll cover:
-Finding the light
-Elements of Exposure: ISO, shutter speed and aperture
-How to achieve that gorgeous blurry background (bokeh)
-Using your camera’s basic settings
-Introduction to lenses
-Advice on where to print and get those images off your camera


You’ll also receive a workbook to take notes and keep to reference for later.


Cost: $250/person – minimum of 4 attendees

Are you looking to step up your game? Need some help getting kid’s attention, or maybe with editing? I am offering limited one-on-one mentoring for individuals that need help capturing the right shot and then editing that gives the photo the right boost, without going too far. The photo above was taken in terrible light …. it was even sprinkling at times. If you know your cameras settings well enough to manipulate the light, great things can happen. Next, if you know how to effectively edit in a way that enhances the photo, rather than destroys it, magical things can happen! During this mentoring session, we will photograph a family or a child, whichever you prefer. We will go through my process of shooting on through to the final edits. Mentoring only available on certain days, please inquire. Price is $1500 for the entire day, out of state inquires only please. Takes place in the Indianapolis area, available for travel, please inquire.
