So wonderful to be able to learn while being safe. Laurie was well organized and invited questions and learning. Think her asking class members for images and being able to edit within our group was very beneficial.

Laurie and the group were very welcoming on my first event with them! Laurie was there to answer any questions if we had them, but we were more than able to independently wander and find the shots that we liked.
