This course also comes with an interactive students-only FB group!

okay, so let's be honest here.

Have you ever felt...

Disappointed when you look through photos and realise you don't have many nice shots of your kids (or yourself)?

Overwhelmed when you pull out your DSLR and look at the manual settings?

Like you've tried to learn how to shoot manual but it hasn't 'stuck'?

Guilty, because you intended to learn to photograph 'properly', but never found the time?

Don't worry, me too!


Let me guess... There's a camera in the back 
of your wardrobe gathering dust?

Like me, perhaps you bought the camera when you had more free time (remember those days?!), and then kids and life happened, and wrapping your head around abstract things like aperture and shutter-speed seems waaaay too difficult now.
Yep, I've been there!

Maybe you just want to capture beautiful, candid images of your high-energy kids? Perhaps you see a memorable moment and grab your camera to shoot, only to miss the cute smile while fiddling with the controls. Our kids are little for such a short period of time, and honestly, as parents all we want sometimes is just a few nice photos of our kids just being kids. Don't worry, help is on the way.

This course will take you from 'eff this' to effortless, I promise! ????

kate's story

"I've always owned a DLSR and loved photography but never really had the chance to learn or things haven't stuck in my head when I've tried, so I usually turn to the trusty iPhone. I did the course the other day and can definitely see a difference already! Can't wait to see the difference throughout the year. Thanks again for teaching in a way that's so easy to understand."

Meet your course instructors

We are Grace & Eric from the @darelist.family and if you're here for this online course, chances are you already know us from Instagram. If so, hey! ????????

We're stoked to bring you this photography course, pulling back the curtain on how we create the images we share on Instagram. A year ago we were uninspired and using our smartphones for most of our photos, even though we had a DSLR. One day, we decided we both wanted to get better at photography, so we downloaded a Lightroom trial and started learning manual settings. We shot almost every day for the next 9 months, got LOTS of blurry pics along the way and learned so much about photography and editing as we honed our style. We've got a ton of information to share, and we're so excited that you're here!

courtney's story

"I was shooting in auto constantly and our feed didn’t have a consistent theme or feel. Since we took the class we’ve not only gotten compliments on how much better our photos look but are being reached out to by way more brands and agencies to collaborate! This was such a great investment!"

- courtney from @OUTOFOFFICEFAMILY 

@outofofficefamily applied what they learned and look at the incredible results!
