I live in Ontario, Canada with my husband, Jordan, and our four children. My interest in photography began when we welcomed our first child. I so desperately wanted to find a way to preserve every moment, every detail and all of the accompanying emotions as our little one grew. I started collecting images using a point and shoot camera, however I found that I wanted more control over the creative aspects of my photographs. I purchased my first DSLR camera two years ago, took courses to learn how to use it, and made it my goal to capture and edit one photo every day. I studied the work of other photographers, asked questions, learned a great deal and was inspired to continue improving my skills.

What is the difference between a Flourish course and a Bloom Workshop?
Flourish courses are self-led courses via downloadable learning materials. Participants of our Flourish courses have a private section within the forum to connect and interact with other Flourish participants. They can also submit questions to the Flourish host anytime during the course duration in which the host will answer selected questions from the pool. A recorded Q & A video will be available after the course ends and will be available for download. The Flourish course section will be open for two months after the course ends for participants to gather and save information.
Bloom Workshops are instructor lead, interactive classes that last over a 2-4 week duration. Students have daily interaction with the instructor and active/assignment students receive feedback on their assignments and have the ability to ask the instructor questions. Unique material is created for each Bloom workshop (PDFs, videos, assignments, lessons, etc) and is shared either daily or weekly depending on the instructor’s teaching preferences. The workshop will be open for two months after the workshop ends for students to gather and save information. Please note that the teacher will not be available to answer questions after the conclusion of the course.
