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 $100-200, but these Quick Tip Photo Cards are just $40.
...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 a priceless photo worth to you? One that perfectly epitomizes your child, that you'll cherish forever?
Spending $40 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.
You know your child best, and you should be able to capture the moments that matter to you!
Just $40 can take you from frustration to wall-worthy pictures.
Got questions? We've got answers!
What skill level is the information?
The tips on the cards are aimed at an absolute beginner to an intermediate photographer who is learning how to use manual mode.
If you're already shooting in manual mode, there is still content on camera settings, working with kids, and lighting that you will find useful.
Will these help me if I don't have a DSLR?
Yes, to a point. Much of the information is applicable to any camera, especially since many compact point & shoot cameras have the ability to control exposure and aperture settings. The tips about working with kids and lighting apply to any type of camera.
What are the exact dimensions of the cheat sheets?
The cards are made of durable plastic with a glossy sheen, much like a gift card or credit card. The deck weighs only 3 ounces, making it lightweight and hardly noticeable in your camera bag.
Each card is 3 inches wide by 4 inches tall, with rounded corners so you don't get poked. The deck of 14 cards is about 1/2 inch thick, held together by a split ring.
How much is shipping?
Shipping to the United States is free! We're working on a low international rate as well.
Do you have other photography resources?
We do! Snap Happy Mom also has several photography courses available, as well as free tutorials and email tips. Visit SnapHappyMom.com for more information.
Are there any coupons I can use?
Nope. These are already a great deal, and we don't offer coupon codes at this time.
Do you offer bulk discounts?
Yes! These cheat sheet cards are a great handout for photography workshops or included in a gift bag at events for moms.
Contact us for bulk pricing of 10 or more units.
Can I ship these as a gift?
Yup! You can easily add check the box to "ship to a different address" in the cart. We automatically take out the invoice for any packages that ship to an address different then the shipping address. Let us know in the comments if you want to add a gift message or have us wrap it!
Do you have a lower-price product?
We do offer a printable version of these cheat sheets for people who would rather print them at home, and laminate them.
The text is slightly smaller on the printable version, and you won't get as vibrant of colors or as crisp of charts. We offer the printable version as a lower-price option, but the deck sold on this page is definitely a higher-quality product.
More happy customers!
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.
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!
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!
