Introduction to Lightroom
Get Started, Get Organized, Get Backed Up!
Hi, I'm Andrea. The Big Girl behind The Big Girl School. Since 2011, I've been teaching (mostly!) women that all those buttons don't have to be scary!
My love of photography started WAY before my pictures were any good. I've always been the scrapbook maker, the historian, and the slide show builder. My love of making beautiful images has grown over time. What started as a desire to get better pictures of my girls turned into a side-hustle. That side hustle has grown and evolved over the years to a full blown business that has taken me on many great adventures capturing everything from Fortune 500 CEO's to country music stars to up and coming entrepreneurs.
My path to teaching rose out the fact that so many people came to me with questions that I started an in-person workshop in my basement as a way to raise money for charity. Over time, the demand for these classes has grown, but my basement has not! And that's how the Big Girl School was born.
As a former Microsoftie, I absolutely love breaking down what seems like technical and complex words into something very easy to understand and practice. I get goose bumps when my students high five and declare they will never use "Auto" again. I live for that breakthrough moment when they can see with their own eyes the difference that being in control of your camera makes.
I hope you'll join me and learn to use your Big Girl Camera!!
