Is the Documenting the Everyday experience for you?

"When children grow up surrounded by photographs, it gives them a richer understanding of where they come from, which helps with confidence.

Until recently, people often thought of photographs as almost trivial, but actually they are an incredibly important way of connecting with our sense of self, with each other and with times gone by."

Professor Geoff Beattie

Head of School and Dean of Psychological Sciences at the University of Manchester

"

An educational experience created by a busy mom who wanted artistic photos and videos of her family. Who wanted to properly preserve her family's personal history in a beautiful and timeless way and without the fuss of craft supplies. Who wanted a streamlined approach to the important responsibility of telling her family's story.

I created this for you.

For anyone who has experienced loss and feels the regret of not taking the time to document, for those who have experienced a catastrophe or who worry about the possibility of one and want to ensure the survival of their personal history -

For every mother that yearns for the albums to be sitting on the shelf and available for her family to enjoy...

To experience the piece of mind that comes with it.

Sitting on the floor of my mother’s bedroom choosing photographs for his funeral, I remember being immediately overcome with the very early and real understanding of how priceless tangible pieces of our story are. How vitally important it is that we document our life. 

That small stack of photographs I held in my hand were all I had left of him. They were the gifts I would carry with me to continue sharing his legacy with his future grandkids and the generations after them. 

My father's death was tragic, but I have come to appreciate the passion that was ignited in me because of it. It has carried me through a career as a professional lifestyle and commercial photographer and now as an educator.

They are pieces of my history.

At ten years old, I lost my father unexpectedly. My entire life turned upside down in an instant.

THE WHY BEHIND IT ALL

But that same technology has inundated us with thousands of files cramming our camera rolls and hundreds of folders on our computer with no hope of finding our stories to enjoy and all the risk of losing everything.

But we aren't telling our stories.

WITH THE ADVANCES OF TECHNOLOGY, SNAPPING A PICTURE OR FILMING A MOMENT COULDN'T BE MORE SIMPLE IN TODAY'S WORLD.

OUR CHILDREN KNOW OF SCROLLING THROUGH A CAMERA ROLL INSTEAD OF THUMBING PHOTOGRAPHS. THEY HAVE LOST TOUCH WITH THEIR PERSONAL HISTORY... WITH THE TANGIBLE EVIDENCE OF THEIR LIFE. TODAY WE HAVE THOUSANDS OF PHOTOS.

Utilizing modern-day technology along with a streamlined and organized system to continually keep our family library up-to-date, we are now:

ENJOYING FAMILY FILMS FOR OUR ON THE REGULAR

OPENING UP THE FAMILY ALBUMS, REMINISCING, AND BONDING OVER OUR FAVORITE MEMORIES

EMPOWERING OUR CHILDREN WITH THEIR OWN INDIVIDUAL RECORDED STORIES

PROPERLY PRESERVING OUR FAMILY'S HISTORY FOR FUTURE GENERATIONS AND AGAINST DISASTERS

EXPERIENCING THE PEACE OF MIND OF KNOWING THAT OUR FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHS AND VIDEOS ARE SAFELY STORED IN CASE OF ANY EMERGENCY WE MIGHT FACE

An online, self-paced, educational series where I show you exactly how I do it and the revolutionary way our family is preserving our story and legacy.

"Everything Kara creates is beautiful! I found her by searching tips on how to improve my iPhone photography for my blog. It's hard to lug around a DSLR at times so I wanted to be able to take amazing pictures with my phone. Her tips were awesome and I learned techniques that I hadn't heard of! Definitely check out her courses if you're interested in improving your photography game!"

CONNECT WITH ME: @THEKARALAYNE

From  ten years spent as a professional commercial and lifestyle photographer to creative director for a top product company in the memory keeping industry, I have always had a passion for preserving our personal history and telling our story.

Outside of my professional credentials, I am simply a mother of five who yearned for not only beautiful photos and home movies, but a streamlined approach to memory keeping  utilizing today's technology. It is a passion passed on to me from my father that I am so grateful for. And getting to share it with you as we link arms in this important work is an absolute joy and true honor.

Hi there! My name is Kara Layne

DOES THE COURSE INCLUDE 
CLOSED CAPTIONS?

You betcha. Everything is mobile friendly and available to you while on the go!

CAN I ACCESS THE COURSES ON MOBILE?

ARE THE VIDEOS AVAILABLE TO DOWNLOAD FOR ME TO KEEP?

The videos within the course are not available to download, but with the purchase of this course you receive lifetime access to the content. You have the freedom of logging back into your account anytime you would like to review the content and refresh your memory!

DO THE COURSES TEACH ABOUT FILE ORGANIZATION AND HOW BEST TO HANDLE IT?

They do not include how to organize all of your images, proper storage, etc because there is such a strong emphasis on the technical aspects of creating beautiful photos and video. However, the Documenting the Everyday educational series has a course coming soon that will take you from beginning to end with how to handle your images and photographs - from organizing your camera roll to proper digital media storage, printing your photographs and creating an organized system that will allow you to enjoy your family memories daily and at any time you like.

ARE THESE COURSES STILL BENEFICIAL EVEN THOUGH I HAVE AN ANDROID PHONE?

While we wanted to ensure that the courses were advertised as iPhone courses because of Kara's expertise and workflow built around the iOS system, there are only two or three specific lessons out of both courses that will be specifically speaking to iPhone users - technical aspects of the iPhone camera as well as the editing apps Kara uses which aren't all available for the Android platform. Otherwise, no matter what kind of smartphone you own, you will walk away learning so much about creating beautiful everyday photographs.

All of the course videos that are included in this course come with a PDF transcript for those that find that more helpful.

This series offers so much value to those who grab a seat and dive into the experience. And I lay everything out on the table for you - both as a retired professional commercial and lifestyle photographer as well as a mother who wanted a streamlined approach to memory keeping.

But that value will only be worth as much as your willingness to invest the time into doing the work.  Remember, it took a long time to get behind in your memory keeping... it's going to take time to flip the script.

Learn how to take the beautiful photos you're craving, the home movies that bring a tear to your eye, the organized and streamlined approach to all of your digital files and photographs you have been needing, and actually enjoy your best memories whenever you want to.
