Mommy & Me Workshop

Since I will soon be leaving the comfort of ProvOrem, I cannot postpone this project any longer.

This Saturday, June 6th, at 9:00 am my talented friend Kaela and I will be teaching a short workshop with tips on how to better photograph your children--followed by a 5-minute session with you and your child (if you have one). You will receive the best image from your session in digital format, with the option to purchase prints at a discount.
  • No type of camera is required, as I will not be covering camera technique. The class is more general for helping you get the best photos you can with whatever camera you have.
  • There is no tuition fee for this workshop (although I will be teaching a basic photography class specifically for DSLRs in July if you're interested in learning more).
  • The workshop will be held at the grassy knoll at the corner of Terrace Lane and Columbia Lane in Orem. Look for a little white shed and a little Asian girl with a camera.
  • Daddies and non-parents are welcome, too!
Email or leave a comment if you are interested in coming or if you need directions. And please email me with any specific questions you may have that you'd like me to cover! allsmiles(dot)photography(at)gmail(d0t)com.


Before & After: Nicole Hill Gerulat Classes

So I started shooting in manual when I was 16 years old on my dad's old Nikkormat EL (tank) 35mm SLR. My high school had a fantastic (and I've discovered, very rare) AP photography program that I was all about. Architecture was so my thing back then: doors, windows, archways, entryways. It got tough shooting film as a poor college student. But my digital and film classes got me through the artistic and technical end of photography.

Enter then-Nicole Hill (now-Nicole Gerulat). With my first digital SLR, I somewhat skeptically enrolled in her Photography 101 class in May of 2008, expecting it to be a review of everything I'd already learned. And a lot of it was. And a lot of it was much, much more. Not only did she review the artistic and technical aspects of photography--the aspects of photography that I have always loved, but she also introduced the business aspect of photography--something I had only really toyed with until then. And now I can't get enough of her classes--I take every class I can get! Nicole is a real teacher--she doesn't hold anything back. She gives it straight, and shares all her secrets. Photographing people can be tough--and she's brought me leaps and bounds especially in that respect.

Now, Nikon D300 in hand, I'm shooting lots of events, and helping pay the bills doing something I have loved for so long! The journey has been bumpy, but worth it. I still shoot for myself, but now I can share my passion with others and help create images they, too, can enjoy.
