Welcome to The Photo Fix

As Featured In


Let's be honest.  That fancy camera you bought to capture AMAZING pics of your kids...it's seeming way overrated.  "Well, maybe I need to actually learn to use it?" You start out strong, but soon get lost in the sea of disconnected tips.  It's overwhelming and frustrating.

But there's good news.  Anyone can take absolutely amazing pics of their kids.  With any camera.  You just need a different approach.

The Photo Fix uses a 3-part process that's proven by 6,000+ parents to help you create priceless pics of your kids.  Not just snapshots.
Thousands have results just like the one below from Ona.  Ona started right where you are, joined the Photo Fix, and followed the simple process.  We just love the images she's capturing these days!  Here's one:

    In just a handful of short and easy to understand lessons, I have learned far more about photography than years of trying to figure it out on my own.

    One lesson through with Kyle and it all just made sense. He has a knack for explaining things in a way that anyone can understand. Kyle is a dad, so he gets kids. He is a photographer, so he gets photography.

    Really and truly I can say that SPS is one of the top maybe 2 or 3 investments I've made. Ever.

    I went from shooting in auto all the time, to now shooting in manual most of the time and LOVING the photos I am getting back. Kyle breaks it down in a way that makes it all seem really simple and doable. So glad I took this course- it’s well worth the money as now I almost never feel the need to hire a professional photographer anymore. :-)
