It's just over a week until Christmas! And whether you celebrate or not, as the year starts to draw to a close, it's a great time to be thinking about what the new year will bring in terms of goals and aspirations.

Over on our peer-to-peer facebook group, Photosanity parents are sharing how Photosanity in general has inspired them to capture natural moments, get in front of the camera more AND get year end photo projects done. And we've been getting great feedback on the Holiday Card Workbook, so if you found it useful in helping you think about how you can break down an overwhelming task, we have a little surprise gift for you….

That's right, we are offering a 20% discount, good on all Photosanity online workshops ordered by December 24th, 2013. Use for yourself or buy as a gift for a spouse or friend (note, gift orders must be placed by Dec 23rd to receive the digital gift card on the 24th).

Find your Photosanity workshop

To help you decide what to purchase, we'll be running three short blog posts this week, each featuring a Photosanity workshop. Today we'll be talking about Stop Missing the Moment, on Wednesday we'll talk about The Photosanity Workshop and on Friday we'll cover the Aperture and Lightroom Workshops.

Stop Missing the Moment

The newest of the Photosanity workshops, this introductory workshop takes less than an hour but is broken into six videos to make it even easier for you to squeeze it into your busy schedule.

It gets you started on your path to Photosanity by showing you how to more fully experience and capture the moments that you most want to remember with your kids - I share with you the most common mistake parents make and what you should do instead.

Then we address one of the biggest issues I hear about from parents - how to get out of auto on your DSLR. While we don't have time to cover this in depth, I give you the basics AND my secret parent-friendly recipe so you can start getting better results right away. Parents who have taken this workshop have said goodbye to auto forever!

I also cover the basics for a simple but effective photo organization system to get your photos under control. And I'll tell you about the one step you're probably missing that is holding you back from getting your photos on your walls.

And all for less than the cost of a nice dinner!

Stop Missing the Moment makes a great gift for any new or expectant moms.

A short, introductory photography workshop, Stop Missing the Moment is also a thoughtful choice for moms with older kids who never quite got around to breaking open their DSLR camera manual and who you know love photographing their kids but are frustrated with the results.
