“This workshop tugged at my heart strings. It is everything that is beautiful and good in love, nostalgia, and childhood.  Allie has done an amazing job of bringing the sentiment and feeling together with the technical side of photography. Reading through this workshop truly made me stop and remember some of the core reason of why I picked up my camera and gave me a way to get back to that. It also gave me new perspectives and ideas to consider when shooting. For the mother and the artist; those committed to telling their families story in a beautiful and honest way – this is for you.”

“I would recommend this course to anyone who is ready to create frames exclusively from your memories. Another mind-bending class from Beyond The Wanderlust. Truly groundbreaking. Who this course is for: every mother and artists who create from the heart. If you strongly believe in documenting your life the way it is, creating memories of present, this is the workshop for you. It made me think of all those fleeting moments of the past; that only I will remember. A must buy!”
