    I want to learn to take photos that capture family moments such as my dad reading to my kids and individual portraits that are unique and fun (and frame-worthy). Basically, I want to take it up a notch from snapshots. I’m pretty good at framing shots but I have zero photography training and could benefit from some expert guidance! Thank you!

  15. Aimee J says

    My children’s lives are passing by so quickly and unfortunately most of it has been captured on my camera on my iPhone. I’d love to learn how to photograph and use a quality camera so I could proudly display some of their precious moments

  16. says

    The picture I posted is of our son and his cousin Emma. He has a rare disease and can’t walk, speak clearly or see, but she doesn’t care a bit. She explains things to him, pushes him, even describes her video games and what’s happeneing so he can be involved. The love between these two is absolutely amazing!

  34. Alana Huntemer says

    I’m looking into getting some of our family photos printed on canvas. All of my photos sit on my computer! Another future project is to go through all of them and to print and frame the best ones. I definitely take less photos now that I’m chasing two busy toddlers around! I would love to learn more about natural lighting and how to capture candid shots of my son and daughter playing.

  35. Jill Myrick says

    I would love to work on a beach project this year with my family while we are on vacation.

  36. Jon says

    I love photography and taking pictures and I think that this is just the most awesome package deal–the camera looks great and when you add the gift card it is just perfect.

    • Jon says

  37. Tara says

    Wanting to work on some pics of the grandsons. I only have two and the oldest had “photo sessions” all the time but now I need to catch up with the youngest and the two of them together.

  38. says

    As I’m a former foster child I don’t have many pics of myself & my family or my foster family. I’ve married a dad so I’m a step parent to 2 boys who’s mother isn’t in the pic so I’d love to be able to capture the love that we all have for each other despite all of the unfortunate events in their little lives. And to capture those many special moments so that way they can show their mom if she ever shows up again!!
