Here's what happy customers have to say:
These might be the cutest things I've ever seen!
LOVE these! Made very well, and they'll last forever. The info is just what I need. Where has this been my whole life?!
Jande - artist and mom
The format is perfect!
Meg is great at delivering the information so that even the most inexperienced can understand. The format is perfect! The simple instructions and diagrams are just what I need when I'm trying to capture the moment.
Amazing! These make complicated concepts easy.
These are convenient and so easy to use while I'm adjusting my camera settings! Meg is a talented and caring photographer who loves to share what she knows. Her quick tip cards have helped me capture moments I treasure of my kiddos.
Jen - mom of six
These have already helped me so much!
I have dabbled in photography for years but keep forgetting what I learned with my "mommy brain." I liked that the cards are in layman's terms rather than such technical terms. These cheat sheets are worth it!
Very helpful and simple, clear tips!
I love these cheat sheets. I have them clipped to my camera bag and love knowing they are right there, easy to flip around to find my scenario and so easy to understand.
Bev - blogger & mom
I am a visual learner these are super helpful!
Meg is so passionate about giving other mother's the tools to create lasting memories with their children. This shows up through her photographs and thorough, well-organized information. She has given me the resources to capture all the precious moments with my kids!
Limited Time Offer: FREE SHIPPING!
Do you want to stop missing moments?
Quit fiddling with your settings - you can learn how to take great photos of your kids!
These cards are more than a cheat sheet - they are a mini photography class you can carry around with you. Most beginning photography courses are at least $200, but these are just $30 per set.
...But there's an even bigger cost to not buying these cards.
If you don't learn how to use your camera, your photos are not likely to improve. Sometimes you'll get lucky and get a good shot, but many precious childhood moments will end up blurry or too dark to use.
How much is it worth it to you to capture a priceless photo? One that perfectly epitomizes your child, that you'll cherish forever?
Spending $30-75 on these cards is a deal compared to the disappointment of subpar photos.
Consider these cards like having an friendly expert in your back pocket.
Not a boring text book that rattles off incomprehensible jargon... a friend who is willing to hold your hand as a beginner, explain concepts simply, and show you why it matters to you as a mom. That's what I want to do for you!
Every mom should feel confident with a camera in her hands.
We recommend getting at least two decks:
1. The Photography Tips for Moms deck to help your creative side.
2. The DSLR deck or iPhone deck to improve your technical skills with your device.
We'll even give you a discount for buying more than one!
