It’s time to discover the scared act of photography as a gratitude practice. You will connect more fully, and feel more present when you begin noticing – appreciating the world around you with your camera in hand.

We will take pauses – and take a moment to stop and notice the smells, sounds, and beauty all around us.

Join us in this self-paced ecourse with beautiful pdf workbooks with guided journal prompts and photography exercises to help you unearth your creativity that you haven’t expressed in too long.

When is the last time you created – just for you?

Take this time to free yourself.

Open up to the creativity already within you.

Give it time and space to express the art and creativity that is uniquely you.

You deserve this as a gift to yourself.

You must fill your cup so that you can fill anothers.

It is a beautiful act of self-care to listen to your heart and give yourself space to create.

Class is enrolling NOW! But HURRY! Class will fill up fast!
