Picture Everday, Finding and Photographing The Magic In Your Daily Life – Win A Free Spot!

I am SOOOO crazy excited about this. Are you sitting down? 
Have you ever been in some serious need of photography inspiration? I don’t know about you, but when life gets busy (or even if it doesn’t) taking meaningful photographs of your every day life can be put on the back burner. I have lost my photo-taking mojo. The summer heat has sucked the inspiration right out of me. Meanwhile, the kids are growing at an ever increasing rate and life is just passing us by – faster than I can document it. It is exhausting! 
I have been searching for some motivation and inspiration to reignite my love for photographing the every day. Can you guess how excited I was to see this new class at Big Picture Classes entitled “Picture Everday, Finding and Photographing The Magic In Your Daily Life”? 
Nope – even more 🙂
Here is a little run down of what is included in the class:

Going to BOOT CAMP! {Giveaway}!

Ooooh, boy. I need a serious work out. A creative work out! My creativity has all gone to flab while I have been out enjoying the sunshine and lazy days.
