I help you take better pictures because we're family

"That's what families do - they help one another, because they love one another."

I just wrote that to one of my sons in a journal we pass back and forth between each other.

I'm humbled that you are even reading this. Seriously. Your time is precious, and you're choosing to spend a little bit of it with me. I don't take that lightly, nor do I want to waste a minute. I'll get straight to the point.

I can help you.

I can help you take better pictures.

I can help you understand how your camera works. I can help you compose your images in a way that conveys the emotions you feel as you snap each picture. I can help you edit those photos to highlight the beauty, not hide the flaws. I can help you visually document your life's story.

Why do I want to help you? Simple. Because Jesus gave us a new commandment - to love one another. (John 13:34)

This is how I love. I help. 

I teach photography. 

I help you document your life with heartfelt photos that YOU take with your own camera!

We're more than a community of like-minded Mommas. At Mom Photo Balm, we're a family, exchanging kindred stories through the Truth-filled images we create of our daily lives!

So, where do we start? How do we begin to come together?

We start with a conversation.

You're able to learn about me here on the blog & through my posts on social media, but I need to hear from you! This can't be a one-sided conversation. #boring

What's your story?

I'd love to HEAR it! Where do you live? How old are you? How many children do you have? Are you a stay-at-home-mom, work-at-home-mom, or do you commute to work? Do your children go to daycare, public/private school, or homeschool? What kind of music do you enjoy listening to? Tell me about a good book or movie! What does your typical day look like?

Have you heard, Mom Photo Balm now has an online radio station & podcast?! If you download the Anchor app, you can even CALL-IN to the radio station! Cool, huh? It truly is radio reinvented! New daily audio clips disappear from the station after 24 hours, unless saved as an episode (kinda like Instagram Stories). I'd be absolutely thrilled to hear from you on Anchor! (p.s. I'm not affiliated with Anchor in any way, I've just really been enjoying the platform since hearing about it from Rising Tide a few weeks ago.)

Mom Photo Balm is based on three converging ideas...


As we meet together on Facebook and Instagram, let's build our conversation on these pillars. Thank you for being here. Thank you for being part of this family. After all...

Friendship is the finest balm,
