I am SO absolutely thrilled. After I taught the March 22nd class, I felt so empowered. I felt like a proud Mama. It was an adrenaline rush when I saw the lights clicking in their heads. They started to understand their camera and I could feel their excitement! I can’t wait to expand this. This will be an experience of a lifetime. You will know how to use your camera and make some money too! What’s better than that!
