You know that dream collecting dust in the top of your closet? The one you're afraid to take down because "you don't have time," but really you're afraid you may not measure up? (Oh... too far?)

Whether you're dying to learn how to capture a framer of your growing baby, or itching to grow your side hustle or big dream, I'm here to walk you through it.

I believe that you can move mountains with your camera—and take pretty pictures of them! 

I grew up with a curiosity for photography, but I never allowed myself to explore it. I made it almost all the way through my undergraduate years before I realized that curiosity didn’t stop there: my heart beat faster when I photographed couples in love. I learned that first hand when one of my roommates told another, “just go have Lindsay take your engagement pictures; she has a camera!” My eyes were opened, and the rest is history. 
Now I’m able to take pictures of couples during a season of pure joy—engagement. I’m able to capture an heirloom at their wedding to be framed and passed down to children and grandchildren. I’m able to come alongside others and help them do the same. It’s the dream.

Create your own hours and spend more time with family.  

Capture the everyday-messy-raw-life moments.

Create family heirlooms to tell the story of your legacy.

Capture awe-inspiring scenery from personal travels to remember forever.

Courageously take the leap into your own business, allowing you to do all of the above.

This course was created after a number of people asked me if I could teach them how to use their cameras. It brought me back to 2013 when I remembered that very feeling: “someone, anybody, just show me the basics of WHAT I need to know, so I can know HOW to capture memories!” And quick! There were so many opinions out there, but there wasn’t a course that offered to me the tools for the basics of what I needed: to be confident with my camera. In hindsight, I wish I could have sifted through the info to find just the basics. After taking the long road yet finding so much joy, success and fruit from it, I decided to create a course that has the basics of what beginner Lindsay would have needed years ago--a course that will allow you to confidently capture crisp, evenly-exposed photos with your camera so that the world is at your fingertips.

Oh, I get fired up about LIGHTROOM. It is hands down the best in it’s efficient workflow possibilities and detailed options for photographers who edit several photos at a time. Because of the workflow capabilities and tools within the program, I do not feel bound to my computer; I feel like a mom who enjoys editing. Because of its organizational ease, I know where my images are, because let’s be honest, they’re worth their weight in gold--and so are my client’s! And because I understand what’s important for my realm of editing, I can confidently select edits to my own style that leave me creatively-energized and proud of the art I create. Does this program sound like something you need? As a mom, hobbyist or professional, Lightroom is absolutely for you! Imagine the potential if you allowed yourself the room to simply just learn it--in one sitting?

sweet words from our STUDENTS

“I’m just frustrated that I spent hours trying to figure all this out by reading online and watching YouTube videos, but I could never really get a good idea of what I was supposed to do and then I was able to understand it all in like 15 minutes from watching The Capture Course.”



sweet words from our students

“Lindsay’s in-home workshop literally gave me the necessary confidence to be behind the camera, relieved any stress I had while shooting, and has given me what I need to have fun while documenting!”




sweet words from our students

“The Capture Course was the perfect jumpstart for someone that’s never used a camera in manual before (that was me!). It was straightforward and simple so it was easy to follow along!”
