About Your Instructor

I’m Beryl. Photographer. Teacher. And Mom To A Creative Pre-teen of my own.

  • I was never a person who carried a camera with me wherever I went. But I fell in love with photography in 2009 as a way to document the exciting time of becoming a mom.

    After an unexpected loss, I used my camera to heal from the intense feelings are surfaced afterwards. That journey led me down an incredible path of becoming an accidental business owner. And “Momtography” was born.

    As a former elementary school teacher, my true calling is to be an educator. I followed my passion for photography and love of teaching to develop the “Momtography Method” for fostering confidence in moms from behind the lens of a camera.

    Now we’re taking what we’ve learned to bring this same curriculum to kids too.

    Photography is a terrific creative outlet with the power to lessen anxiety, process difficult emotions, and find confidence and creativity each and every day. We’re excited to bring these lessons in a fun and unique way through the “Teentography” virtual class.

Frequently Asked Questions

I HAVE A CHILD WHO ISN'T 9-15. IS THIS STILL FOR THEM?

These are just our recommended ages to be able to access and use the lessons fairly independently. Younger children are welcome but will need a bit more parental support. Older teens or adults will still enjoy the creativity these lessons will offer. Feel free to sign up even if you’re outside our 9-15 age window. We’d love to have you!

I HAVE MORE THAN ONE CHILD WHO WOULD LIKE TO TAKE THE CLASS. IS THAT OK?

One registration will allow you to have 3 children in the same household be part of the class! So feel free to consider this a class the whole family can enjoy together.

RIGHT NOW WE ARE BEING ASKED TO STAY INDOORS AND QUARANTINE. DO I NEED TO GO OUT WITH MY CAMERA FOR THIS CLASS?

Oh I’m so glad you asked. We are creating this class with COVID-19 and those restrictions in mind. All lessons will be able to accessed and completed from the comfort of home. We encourage you getting out in your yard or going for a walk if that’s an option for you, but not required or necessary to take part in class.

MY CHILD WANTS TO LEARN DSLR PHOTOGRAPHY, WILL YOU BE COVERING THAT?

This class is specifically for ANY type of camera, but we do have a DSLR add-on which we’re happy to tell you more about after your registration if that’s of interest to you or your child.
