‘God is good’ in Haitian Creole
Is there anything sweeter than a man holding his child?
Nope. There is not. 😉
I snapped those photos while we were in Haiti in 2015, but Kevin is the one who taught me how to use our camera. Did you know he teaches folks how to use their DSLRs? Yep. He and his friend Josh created a website called ShootFlyShoot.com in 2012 and have helped over 10,000 satisfied students to date. Pretty cool, huh? I’m so proud of him. He’s as sharp as a tack and a natural teacher. Patient, prepared, and always thinking about things from the learners perspective. (PS -I shoot with a Canon 7D and love it, but the principles Kevin and Josh teach would apply no matter what kind of camera someone was using.)
Anywho, if you want to learn the simple 3-step process guaranteed to give you full control of your DSLR camera quickly and without tech overwhelm, he’s running a “Spring (Price) Break” special this weekend. You can get their Photography 101 or Photography 102 courses for 60% off, and their Secrets of Photography course for over 90% off. They’re video classes and you can watch them at your own pace whenever you have time, forever. You just log on whenever it’s convenient and see the guys literally demonstrate what buttons to push and which settings to use. I’m happy to share about it here today because it truly is an incredible way to learn and from the very best teachers in all the land. 🙂
Don’t take my word for it though…here are some testimonials I snagged from their site:
“This course CHANGED my life when it comes to photography. I still go back and reference it often. So grateful for a course that is very clear-cut and not intimidating at all. Literally changed my photography skills!” -Trinity Holmes, Circa34.com
“I just finished the Photography 101 course last week and I’ve been shooting in manual ever since…and with confidence! THANK YOU!! Your course was excellent! It’s like bells and whistles were going off all over the place and I was having one “A-Ha” moment after another!” -Kendra Goff
“Did a senior shoot yesterday…third shoot done in manual! Y’all started me shooting in manual and I haven’t stopped since. Thanks for helping this 14-year-old photographer!” – Savannah Batton
“Einstein said, ‘If you can’t explain it simply, then you don’t understand it well enough.’ Well, you two understand photography completely because you made it sooo easy to understand!! Good Job!” – Kim Nelson, Kim Nelson Photography

Spring Break sale aside, I gotta tell ya, my favorite thing about putting together this post was reliving the memories of meeting our boy. It almost feels like a dream now! Three years and nine months of working to bring him home and POOF! He’s been here nearly three years already!
Another neat thing about posting these particular pics is that the last time I shared them I was forced to cover his cute little face because we weren’t allowed to share his identity until he was legally our son. And then once he got home, I started taking and sharing new photos, so these have just been hanging out on a hard drive for the past few years. What a trip to re-publish them without that pesky, red, clip art heart today! 😀
And speaking of kiddos…
We’re driving up to north Alabama next week to meet the folks at Davidson Farms. You may remember I shared about them earlier this year. Because the kids who live there are in the State’s care, I’ll need to protect their identities too, but I do look forward to taking my camera and telling you all about our visit when we get back!
Happy weekend, friend-
