Practice Makes Perfect – Dinkyheart Photography Courses For Busy Mamas

LearnPost Category - LearnLearn - Post Category - SportsSports

If there’s one thing we can’t get enough of it’s photos of our family and kids. And while your little ones might be used to you following them around with an iPhone by now, it’s still hard to get that perfect shot (most of our snaps are of the seconds after that magical moment – you know mamas, right after that one-off awesome jump off the diving board or have that startled rabbit-in-the-headlights look).

With the summer holidays coming up, a mama-friendly photography course is just about the perfect thing to book into your diary and the ideal way to get tips for capturing the magic of your summer from an expert.

And guess what? You can do just that with Dinkyheart Photography (don’t you just love that name?), a family lifestyle photographer who’s known for capturing the clan at happy and relaxed moments – no posing, cheesy smiles (or rabbits-in-headlights). Run by the fabulous Lianne whose background in child psychology, nursery teaching and assisting children with special needs combined with a complete love and talent for photography (as well as a degree) is the perfect combo for guaranteeing great shots. Lianne’s secret? Using lots of natural light and a huge dollop of fun and patience for bringing the very best out of your brood.


If you’d rather be behind the camera then in front – but you don’t have a spare 6-weeks up your sleeve for an entire course – then Dinkyheart’s photography courses are just the thing. Designed specifically for busy mamas (and dads), the 4 hour session will teach you everything from how to set up your camera to the importance of composition and using light to get beautiful shots of your babes. Oh and you get to spend a fun and relaxed morning away from the daily grind – sounds blissful right?!

So whether it’s new skill or family heirlooms you’re after mamas, Dinky Heart Photography will help you freeze all that special family time with some seriously stunning shots. We heart.

Photography courses cost AED 1000 per person and include a 4 hour workshop, 4 weeks of online support and an e-book. Participants must have their own DSLR camera.
Summer course dates are 5th June, 10th June & 19th August.
