"A is one who knows the way, goes the way and shows the way."
- John C. Maxwell
Did you know I actually was going to school to be a teacher after High School? Yup, that's right. I also used to teach Sunday school when I was a teenager. I guess teaching is just something I deep down, truly enjoy. Of course, I ended up falling in love with photography, and I took that route instead of education like I had originally planned.
Teaching this beautiful art and everything I know about it, is one of my biggest passions in life. I love being able to help others in their journey of photography and being successful and that's really what teaching is all about for me.
Community over competition ALWAYS! I know that phrase is so over-used, but it's still darn true!

Let's call a spade a spade. I taught myself all that I know and while Lightroom is my main editing platform, Photoshop definitely comes in clutch when it comes to corrections and alterations. Things like removing that person or car in the background, or maybe even replacing the face with the closed eyes with the face bright-eyed and bushy-tailed. The possibilities with Photoshop are amazing and you can't do much of this anywhere else. This video gives you all my tips and tricks!
COFFEE & CHAT WITH CHRISTINA
1 HOUR | $75
Maybe you're ready to take your love of photography and doing it a little on the side, to another level up. Maybe you're just barely jumping into the game and really don't know where to start. There's just so many things that can feel overwhelming trying to learn alone, but I'm here and I'm so down to help! No one taught me anything, but helping and teaching is something I love.
Literally, let's talk about anything! Over coffee (ahem, or a sipper of somethin' else *wink*). I totally don't mind.
I'll dive into whatever you want to know in the full hour! I've gained a lot of knowledge and how-to over 8 years and I don't need to keep it a secret! I want to add value to your photography journey in any way I can!

Same jazz like up top, let's get to know a little more about one another first at a coffee shop, talk all things photography and anything else you want to know!
Then you'll join me at a shoot and shoot alongside me. I'll show you posing tips and how I personally get my clients feeling comfortable within minutes of my sessions beginning. I'll give tips about lighting and positioning as we go while also giving you time to ask questions as we shoot. If you bring your camera, great, but if you learn better by just observing, that works too!
Once we wrap that up, we'll meet up again to go over editing with your presets in LR, some constructive critiquing, making corrections in Photoshop, and how to do your workflow.
P.S. This all doesn't have to happen in one single day. We can absolutely break it up if need be.
