What if you could take great photos for your business, your blog, or your family

without breaking the bank on an expensive camera or hiring a professional photographer?

I've done just that in my online business

And now I'm excited to bring you the Phone Photography Primer to teach you all of my tips and tricks for composing, editing, and sharing great photos.

Like many people, you're already taking photos with your phone, but you don't feel confident in your photo-taking abilities, and you're not getting the results you want when you share them online.

You're wearing all of the hats in your business, and you're the CEO of your family, but taking photos is less than joyful for you.

You would just hire a professional photographer to take all of your photos for you, but you need to update your images more than once a year without breaking the bank.

You want to take your own photos, but you feel like you're at a disadvantage not having an expensive camera or fancy equipment.

I'm here to give you everything you need to change ALL of that.

With the Phone Photography Primer we'll dive into

  • What makes a great photo
  • Tips for developing your eye as a photographer
  • Best practices for taking your photos
  • An inside tour of all of my favorite mobile editing tools

I've expanded the content I've taught in live workshops and online to thousands over the last three years, and I'm sharing it all in one place for you to access and improve your phone photography skills FOR LIFE.

Here is what you get with the course:

  • 3 Modules (+2 bonus modules)
  • 2+ Hours of video lessons
  • 22 Demo videos showing you how I compose, shoot, edit, and save my photos
  • Lifetime access to the course and all future updates for free


Imagine if you had a set of steps to follow every time you took a photo to get the best shot possible.

Imagine if you were excited to take photos for your brand and your personal life––and even more excited to share them online with your audience and friends.

Imagine if you could take great photos whenever and wherever you needed without having to hire someone else to take them for you.

Imagine if you could exponentially improve your photos without having to buy ANY new equipment.

"Amy’s glowing reputation proceeded her and then she exceeded all expectations! Her combination of creative strategy plus very practical tools really infused new life into The Impact Guild's social media. Through her Photography Workshop at our coworking space, I got to see first hand how her guidance translated from individuals to businesses and across industries. I couldn’t recommend her workshops more highly!"

- Sarah Woolsey, Founder, The Impact Guild

"I have always been impressed by the quality and professionalism of Amy’s Instagram feed, so it was an easy choice to pick her to guide my teacher trainees in a custom phone photography course focused on yoga. The strength of social media as a marketing tool is undeniable and as aspiring yoga teachers, creating images that capture attention and inspire others is a skill that I knew Amy would be able to share with them.

Our trainees all left with practical knowledge and skills they could immediate put into use for promoting their yoga offerings. I have received so many words of gratitude from past trainees for offering this experience. The skills they acquired from Amy’s workshop has set them apart from other fresh yoga teachers by giving them the tools to create powerful, emotional and inspiring content that actually works to market their classes."

- Cassandra Fauss, Founder, Mobile Om

Hi, I'm Amy, the founder of Maker Mama.

I began my online career ten years ago when I launched my first blog, Books for Bread. I founded what eventually became Maker Mama a year later.
If you were to look back at my first few years of blogging (and Instagramming) you'd see a noticeable difference in the photo quality.
With the advent of iPhones and Instagram I learned little by little how to improve my photography and develop my eye for detail.

As a self-taught photographer and iPhonographer, I've been able to:

  • Create an engaged organic audience of over 15K followers on my social channels
  • Regularly attract clients and book out my social media services, bringing in a consistent income each month
  • Have my work featured in Apartment Therapy, MAKE, Buzzfeed DIY, CRAFT, BlogHer, PBS Crafts for Kids, and Mother Earth Living
  • Partner with numerous brands including Martha Stewart Crafts, Athleta, HP, KIA, Nintendo, Lego, and Goodwill

I eventually branched out full-time on my own as a social media consultant and influencer and I haven't looked back since.

Do you how I was able to succeed?

I had the social proof of great photos to go with my body of work.

And you are more than capable of doing the same.

I've shared my phone photography tips with over 10,000 people both online and in live local workshops over the last three years, and now I'm bringing my digital photo ninja skills to share with you here in the Phone Photography Primer. With the right know-how and tools, you can take great photos, too.
