Despite living at opposite ends of the UK The Kats got together for some fun and work. Lots of gossiping, feasting, playing and a giggling in front of the video camera. Ten people under one roof: how could that not be chaotic and wonderful?
The first Collect the Moments came to a close and you can read about what Laura, Steffi, Joeli and Kelly thought about it on their blogs. You can also check out our testimonials page for more feedback from our former students.
Our pilot Manual Overdrive course took off and saw the class taking control of their cameras and getting some cracking shots with their new-found skills.
Such a whirlwind! This month we were deep into Collect the Moments with our first inspiring class. Not only did the participants put their faith in us but they poured their energy into their photography. It’s quite something to see the course you imagined take shape and inspire others.
Due to popular demand we created and launched Manual Overdrive – a three week bootcamp to get your DSLR off Auto and onto Manual for good. This course is all about the technical and not necessarily aimed at taking pictures of children.
Bambino Goodies features writer Claire wrote about her experience on Collect the Moments saying, “It’s worth every penny of the fee.”
We also created some free goodies for our newsletter subscribers. Everyone who subscribes receives five tips to improve your photography of children today as their first email. You can sign up on the top right hand side of the page if you’d like to take a look…
We have been busy working on our class site and developing the lessons for Collect the Moments. The first ever class began at the end of May and we could not be more giddy with excitement. One of our students is Carla of Sisters Guild. Not only is she one half of the force of stylish nature behind the beautiful boutique but she has a way with words which taps into your heart. Here Carla blogs about signing up for Collect the Moments.
As well as working on Capturing Childhood, Kat M went to London to speak at the very first CybHer women’s blogging conference.
Amid many long and fevered planning conversations we didn’t dare dream that we would get such a warm reception on launching our venture. Capturing Childhood went live on Friday April 27th. The blogging community were keen to spread the word and we weren’t 24 hours old before Emily of The Start Up Wife had shared our story in her Start-up Spotlight slot. This was closely followed by Irish bloggers Candepop.
Our very first course Collect the Moments opened for registration on Saturday 28th April. It was welcomed with Amanda at Kitschy Coo and Carie at Space for the Butterflies blogging about how excited they were to sign up.
