Somewhere along your motherhood journey you fell in love with photography.

You picked up a camera, learned how to shoot in manual mode, and found a deeper appreciation for your family and your life.

Not to mention, you actually take pretty good pictures.

Photography, especially in the early days, fed your confidence – learning to shoot in manual mode was exciting! But you also find photography helps you in even more meaningful ways too – because your pictures show you visual rewards of your life as a mom.

Your photography journey has been amazing so far. And you want to share your love, and knowledge, and passion with the world!

But what if trading your time and energy and wealth of knowledge could also make you some money in the process?

What if you could take on a part-time work experience that would allow you to do something meaningful and creative with your time, allow you to contribute to your family financially, but also maintain the freedom and flexibility to wear your most important hat – MOM.

What if you could join and connect with a global sisterhood of photography teachers from around the world and get the support, education, and materials needed to confidently market yourself?

Hi I’m Beryl. Founder of Recapture Self and creator of the Momtography™ photography class. Since 2011 I’ve taught 1,000+ moms in my local community and online how to feel confident behind the lens of their DSLR camera so they can make the most of their investment.

Since 2011 I’ve taught 1,000+ moms in my local community and online how to feel confident behind the lens of their DSLR camera so they can make the most of their investment.

As the Momtography™ class has grown and evolved over the last 7 years, I’ve been asked to travel with the popular 4 hour jumpstart class. And I have! Momtography™ has successfully hit the road and gone to Dallas, TX and Lexington, KY.

As much as I’d LOVE to travel the world and teach more and more women how to love their photos and their life, this year I began to wonder if perhaps there were moms out there like me who would LOVE to teach in their cities and towns too.

Spoiler alert: There are!


That’s where you come in.

You’re invited to join the Momtography™ movement and train to teach classes in your local community.

Think back to when you were first learning.

It was exciting, it built your confidence, and it helped you appreciate and freeze the precious, ordinary, daily moments of your life

IMAGINE IF YOU COULD GIFT THAT FEELING TO OTHER MOMS!

I believe you can.

INTRODUCTING…THE MOMTOGRAPHY™ TEACHER TRAINING & LICENSING PROGRAM


Who is this program for?

Our licensed teachers are a diverse group of women. They are stay at home moms wanting an outlet for themselves, full-time working moms seeking a creative experience outside of the daily grind, and professional photographers looking for a new income stream to round out their business.

Our licensed teachers are a diverse group of women. They are:

  • stay at home moms wanting an outlet for themselves
  • full-time working moms seeking a creative experience outside of the daily grind
  • professional photographers looking for a new income stream to round out their business

Perhaps you’ve been thinking about working for yourself or maybe you already own a business and want to connect with your clients in a new way.

If you’re passionate about photography, love to connect with other moms and have a knack for teaching or leading I would LOVE to chat with you.


I know starting something new can be scary. It takes time. It takes confidence. It takes work. It takes risk. It takes passion.

But all great passion projects start by taking a first baby step.

With that being said…

If being trained to teach Momtography™ in your town is something you’re curious about, let’s start a conversation.

I want to hear your story. I want to see if teaching might be for you. If there’s a small voice inside saying ‘HEY — I might be able to do this…’ click the button below to fill out an application. There is no obligation to sign up for anything. Once we get your application we’ll be in touch. If you’re a good fit, we’ll schedule a 30 min call to chat a bit more about the program and if it’s a good fit for us both.

This is your invitation…to say YES to exploring your curiosities. I’d LOVE to hear from you.


Want to know a bit more about training?

The 3 month training is broken into 3 core topic areas:

MINDSET – we’ll talk about the core philosophies behind Momtography™ and help you uncover your confidence as an expert teacher and mentor.

METHODOLOGY – this is where you’ll learn the unique framework I’ve used to teach technical photography to hundreds of moms in a way that connects and sticks.

MARKETING – you’ll prep your bio page and payment systems plus you’ll develop a customized plan to spread the word about your classes in a way that feels comfortable and exciting for you!

The licensing program will not only provide you with ALL the teaching materials you need to get started: Power Point Slides, marketing materials, checklists, shopping lists, scripts for reaching out to partners, but it will also provide ongoing training and support.

After going at this for 6+ years I’ve learned A LOT about what moms REALLY want from a 4 hour in person photography class, what questions to expect, how to support multiple camera types that are not your own, etc…

So the benefits of becoming a licensed Momtography™ teacher are huge because you will save so much time with everything handed over to you for teaching and ongoing access to my brain as a coach and guide.

Upon the completion of your training you’ll receive a license that allows you to teach Momtography™ classes in your town for 1 year. (If you continue on after that there will be an annual re-licensing fee).


There’s so much more I’d love to share. But oftentimes it’s so much easier to connect.

I want to hear from you. Your dreams and hopes and fears and questions.

If you’re reading this and thinking a teaching experience might be the perfect fit for you, it time for you to reach out.

Even if it feels a little bit scary. Especially if it feels a little bit scary. (that’s always a clue that magic might be around the corner…)

The application to become a teacher is below. There is no obligation to sign up for anything. Simply an invitation for you to share and connect. Once your application in received we’ll be in touch. If you’re a good fit, we’ll set up a 30 min call to chat a bit more about the program and if it’s a good fit for us both.

No pressure. Just possibilities.
