I’m pleased to announce I’ll be teaching another Snap Happy: Photo 101 class on June 29th, 2014, this time in partnership with Gymboree Play & Music in Woodley Park and UrbanSitter. Complimentary childcare and entertainment will be provided for parents who attend my class! I’m so excited to be collaborating with Gymboree and Urban Sitter to make this event accessible to more parents. It’ll be a great way for both parents and kids to spend a Sunday afternoon.

Want to take better pictures of your own family?

Most parents I encounter take LOTS of photos of their kids. It’s easy to get excited about photography when your kids are growing before your eyes and you want to preserve every heartwarming moment. You may hire me, the professional photographer, for an annual family photo session or to mark a significant milestone like the birth of a child. But when I’m not around, the snapshots you take are an important part of capturing all the everyday moments.  Over the years, many of you have shared your frustrations about your own photos and have asked me for tips to improve your skills, so I’ve decided to put all this advice together into a fun, 90-minute workshop to cover all the basics.

Is this Photo 101 Class for you?Photo Class by Julie Kubal Photography

Do you want to take better pictures of your own family? Have you ever wondered what the secrets are to capturing “the” moment? Then this Snap Happy: Photography 101 is just the class for you! I will share with you some simple strategies to get you happy with your snapshots (hint: understanding lighting is KEY!), and we will even have the opportunity to practice the skills you learn in the class. We will touch on the following topics:

* organizing and preserving your memories

* discovering the Five Steps to getting Snap Happy

* learning to find and utilize natural lighting

* composing an amazing shot

All you will need is a camera (a DSLR is NOT required) and desire to create beautiful family memories!

The class is designed to help amateur photographers get better snapshots shots to tell their life’s story. You will walk away knowing how to like what you see on the back of the camera a whole lot more
