What’s it about?

My business tagline is “Ordinary Moments, Extraordinary Memories” and I’m not going to lie, I’m struggling to find the joy in the small things these days.  It’s been a long winter and as someone who works from home I decided to do this challenge in hopes of sharing my love and passion for photography with others but also creating a community of joy-seekers who need a little boost to make it through the last few weeks of winter.

Who am I?

Hi, I’m Sara!  Photographer, wife, mother (wrangler) of three boys.  Lover of photography, caffeine, reading, camping, and travelling.

My love of photography began in a high school dark room over two decades ago and I am so grateful that I have come full circle and now get to teach others. Helping people create their own cherished memories is one of my greatest joys.

What’s the challenge about?

I’ve created a list of 31 different themes.  To join in on the challenge you need a cell phone or camera (or both).  The challenge is about photographing the little moments of your day to find beauty even in the mundane or routine parts of your life.  As we go I’ll share photography tips that will help you to take photos of what’s most important to you.

Do I have to post 31 photos?

Definitely not!  Post as many, or as few, as you want.  

What’s in it for you:

  1. Prizes!  FIVE $25 Gift Certificates: The choice is yours: caffeine (Starbucks), books (Indigo), or towards a photo session or course with me.
  2. Photo tips, tricks, and ‘how tos’.  If you want to improve the photos you take with your camera or cell phone, I’d love to help.  I’ll share some of my favourite photography tips throughout the month-long challenge.
