Making Spirits Bright

Ideas and inspiration to help you create and capture magical moments this holiday season.

Capturing the Magic of Christmas

I can still remember the excitement I felt as a kid when Christmas was near. I loved everything about it. The lights. The music. The shopping. Making gingerbread houses and baking cookies. It’s funny how the memories you have a child become the traditions you create for your own family.

Christmas is a season full of special gatherings, cozy moments and celebrations that all deserve to be captured. The joy of spending time with your children and making memories is what inspired me to create this course.

Can I tell you a secret? You already have everything you need to take beautiful photos. This course is going to help you be more intentional with your camera and tell a story with your photos

Capturing the Magic of Christmas is an online course to help you document your family traditions in a way that is simple and stress free. You’ll learn tips and tricks about lighting and composition that will work with any camera. But that's not all! I also wanted to share ideas and activities you can use to celebrate joy and togetherness. There's a holiday photo bucket list if you're unsure where to start as well as 24 advent activities you can do with your kids. The same ones we do as a family! And most of them are totally free. I don't want to add any stress to an already jam packed time of year.

I also came up with a 7-day holiday photo challenge you can do with family and/or friends. Wait until you see it! It’s bananas! You’ll get a list of our favorite must-see Christmas movies, Instagram accounts to follow for holiday inspiration, my favorite places to print photos, how I edit photos on my phone, and behind the scenes videos too.

My hope is that you'll come away from this course with the confidence to use your creative voice, photos you can look back on and be proud of, and a feeling of holiday bliss.

This online course is for you if…

  • want to up your photography game so that you can capture this beautiful time of year
  • want to be IN some of your photos (this is so important!)
  • want to connect with a creative, supportive, fun group of women who love photography
  • …you want to capture the magic of childhood
  •'ve been eyeing your dusty camera or wanting to make the most of your camera phone but don't know how to begin
  • …you’ve been frustrated in the past with experiencing a really special moment but not being able to transfer the magic in the images you capture.

I hope you'll join us! The course opens on Black Friday!
