Don’t wait! Your chance to join ends in:
Busting your butt trying to learn photography, but you’re so lost and overwhelmed you don't know where to start, what to learn next….or what you’ve missed.
Frustrated because you see all these beautiful images taken by other photographers, and are still wondering "how the heck did they DO that?!"
Taking forever to get your settings right because you’re constantly fumbling with your camera and second guessing yourself, and by the time you’re ready, the moment’s gone.
Wondering why most of your images are soft and out of focus - in fact, so many that you're beginning to think your lens must be broken 😁
No matter how many free tutorials you read, or how hard you work, you can’t get a grip on any of it, and you’re getting frustrated because you don’t know what you’re doing wrong.
You wish someone would just take you by the hand and guide you through each step in order, so you could finally stop with the learning and get on to the fun stuff!
√ You know exactly what you need to do to get professional level images - and can WOW your family and friends with your photos.
√ You’re consistently taking images that are beautifully lit and perfectly in focus, so that instead of trying to salvage one good image from 50, you’ve increased your rate of keepers and can CHOOSE the photos you love.
√ You pick up your camera, and KNOW what exact settings to use in every situation (and can change them quickly when needed) so much so that you feel in control and confident - no more second guessing yourself, or your settings.
√ You’re proud of the images you’re creating, and you no longer feel embarrassed about sharing your photos with others (and get a secret thrill when someone asks YOU - “How did you get that?!”)
√ Start taking pictures so darn good that you’re being asked by your friends to take pictures of THEIR families, and starting to make a side, or even full time income, from something you’re passionate about.
You’ve probably experienced this already: without some kind of roadmap to follow and a guide to show you the ropes, learning photography can feel seriously overwhelming!
The truth is, when you're not aware of WHAT you need to learn, all the free information in the world won't help you.
You’ll simply end up watching a mish-mash of overly complicated tutorials that don’t make any sense, or don’t fit together - and you’ll probably miss out on all the critical little nuggets of information that help it all come together and make sense.
It’s like one large intricate puzzle, with all these different pieces linking together.
If you’re missing even just a few of those puzzle pieces, you’ll never have the whole picture, and so you won’t get the images that you’ve been dreaming of.
That’s why trying to learn photography through disjointed tutorials that you found on random websites just makes the whole process take 10 x longer than it should, and feel 10 x more stressful and frustrating. It’s just really, really difficult to find everything that you need that way, not to mention trying to figure out how all the pieces fit together!
The result? YEARS of overwhelm, frustration, and wasted time.
In Auto to Awesome, you’ll get ALL the pieces of the puzzle, and shown how they all fit together, so you’ll never feel lost, overwhelmed, or wondering what the heck you’re missing!
Absolutely nothing is missed out, and every single step is detailed, which means instead of having to take 3 or 4 different courses to learn photography, Auto to Awesome covers it ALL, in one place.
That’s why so many of our students have said that they’ve taken other courses, or even in-person classes before, but Auto to Awesome was the one that finally made it come together and make sense!

Stop fighting with your camera and feeling your confidence dwindle. Armed with an arsenal of techniques, tips and strategies, you’ll know exactly how to take the creative pictures you see in your head - just like the ones from the pros.
There’s SO much more to manual mode than balancing exposure in the same way your camera would! When you truly understand manual mode you’ll get the perfect exposure every time, be able change your settings faster, and get more creative shots that WOW.
No more putting off taking photos because the light is too low, or the sun is out. You’ll be able to take photos in ANY type of light: indoor window light, low light, sunny days, cloudy days and the golden hour, so you can take awesome whenever and wherever!
Put an end to soft, out of focus images that miss the mark (literally!) You’ll learn the easy 4 step framework for getting tack sharp images every time, plus a myriad of different strategies you can use for both still and action shots. Say hello to count-the-eyelashes sharp images! 🙌

You might have seen programs that teach you one element in depth - like manual mode, or natural light - but you’ll need to purchase 3 or 4 separate programs to get everything you need.
Or you’ll see programs that go the other way - they take a few different elements from each of the key areas in photography, and pop them together into a “beginner” course. Sure, you’ll make a little progress, but because you don’t have all the information, it’s not long until you’re stumped again, and you STILL can’t get the images you want. (in fact, some of you will have tried this already and know it doesn’t work!)
With Auto to Awesome, you get ALL the pieces of the photography “eco-system” laid out for you, step by step, in a comprehensive framework, so you get the images you want quicker, and with less frustration.
This is critical, because you never know what challenges you might encounter, when you might get stuck, or what you might need help with in the future. Having someone knowledgeable and experienced to get help from every time you have a question about photography is simply invaluable!
I know you’re busy. I know you don’t have a lot of spare time. And I know you don’t want to waste money.
That’s why with Auto to Awesome there’s no need to be online at a certain time. There’s no need to finish the course within 4 weeks or lose the ability to ask your instructor questions. And there’s no problem if one of your kids falls sick right after you enroll, because you have lifetime access. With Auto to Awesome you simply cannot fall behind, or miss out.
You can complete all the course lessons from the comfort of your coach with your iPad, the kitchen table with your laptop, or even at the local Starbucks with your phone - as long as you have an internet connection, you’re good to go!
The entire program is 100% online and pre-recorded, so it’s as simple as logging into the private course portal, and pressing play. You don’t have to worry about being online at a certain time.
Plus, you can simply never fall behind or miss out, as you have instant and lifetime access to the course materials. That means you can go at your own pace and complete the lessons on YOUR schedule.
The honest answer is: it depends on you and your current situation! Most of our students take around 8 weeks to fully go through the course, but it really depends on where you are right now in your photography journey.
We have everyone from complete beginners who have never picked up a camera before, to those who have been trying to figure this out themselves for years but still couldn’t get it to come together.
If you’re brand new to photography, obviously it will take you longer than someone who has been studying this a while, as everything you learn will be brand new information to you!
Either way, remember there’s absolutely no rush or right or wrong amount of time, because you have lifetime access to the course materials - plus all future updates and bonuses.
√ A new or intermediate photographer. New photographers can skip the years of frustration and trial and error, whilst more intermediate photographers can take their photos to the next level.
√ Ready to learn how to capture beautiful photos of children, families or seniors - either in candid lifestyle situations, or posed portraits.

√ Put off by overly technical trainings - I have a reputation for providing super-easy-to-follow lessons that you don’t need a degree in Physics to understand 🙌
√ Maybe considering earning an income from photography - whether as a full time photography business owner, or as a side-income to support your photography passion.

“I don’t think I have enough time!”
Believe me, I get it! But know this - following a step by step program is the BEST way to leverage your time, as you won't waste a single minute on things that don't work, or having to try to hunt down tutorials that you hope might make sense. Auto to Awesome is the ultimate shortcut, as it will literally cut years off the time it takes you to develop your photography skills. The question should be: do you have time NOT to do it?
“Can’t I just get all the info for free?”
Although there is a LOT of info on the internet, if you're not aware of what you need to learn and how it all fits together, all the free information in the world won't do you the blindest bit of good! It’s just SO easy to miss out on the critical elements that make it all come together - making the whole process so much harder and longer. Nothing is ever “free” - you’ll simply pay for it in time rather than cash (and guess which one you can’t get more of?!)
“I’ve tried taking courses before”
The problem with many courses out there don't give you all the information you need, and without the whole picture, of course it’s not going to make sense! Auto to Awesome is simply DIFFERENT. We give you ALL the information, laid out for you, step by step, and nothing is missed out. Plus you’ll have other benefits, like direct support from your tutor, a support group and more, so I won’t let you fail.
Keep trying to figure all of this stuff out on your own (which actually took me over three YEARS to do!) and keep taking uninspired snapshots and missing those perfect moments.
I won’t say it can’t be done, but slogging through every bit of content you find online, and trying to figure out how to get all the difficult and conflicting information to come together through trial and error, means that the whole process will be much slower, more frustrating and more overwhelming.
Get an injection from my brain to yours and have everything you need be able to start capturing your family’s moments the way you want to, and in a matter of weeks. This way you’ll bypass years of wasted time, energy and frustration and be able to get the photos you want NOW, not in some distant faraway future.
**This offer expires when the countdown reaches zero**
Not sure if Auto to Awesome is going to be right for you? Then don’t worry, because you get a FULL 30 DAYS to take it for a test drive and try it out!
If within those 30 days, you don't think this is the course for you, then all you need to do is email me, letting me know why the course didn’t live up to your expectations, for a full, no quibble refund.
I’m offering this money-back guarantee simply because I KNOW this program works, and I want you to be able to find that out for yourself, risk free.
Well hello there! I'm Audrey Ann, the founder of Live Snap Love, where I teach you how to improve your photography skills and beautifully capture your days. I’m known for being able to break complicated concepts down so that they make perfect sense, and having an easy to understand teaching style. There’s nothing more rewarding to me than seeing all those lightbulbs go off with my students, and they realise learning photography doesn’t have to be so frustrating! After teaching well over 1,100 happy students how to get they images they dreamt of in Auto to Awesome, and with waaaaay less overwhelm, I know I can help you too!

DEFINITELY not! This is the BEST time for you to take the course because you can avoid the frustration you'll get by trying to learn it on your own, or picking up misguided (although well-intentioned) information. By learning everything as and when you need it, you'll avoid all the costly, time and energy sucking mistakes that people make when trying to learn on their own, and get a fast track to gorgeous images.
Absolutely! I'd say well over half of my current Auto to Awesome students are more experienced, but they enrolled in the program because they'd tried to figure it out themselves, or had even taken other courses, but they STILL weren't getting the images they dreamt of. You'll still get massive value from the program because you'll get all those missing pieces that actually make it come together.
So many courses take elements from each area and package them together in a beginners course, but because you don’t get all the information, it never feels like it comes together and makes sense. OR they go deep into one element, like manual mode, but you need another course on light, and another on focus, and another on compositon until it all comes together. Because everything in photography is connected, so if you only understand a few parts of the puzzle, there’s no WAY you can get everything to fit together. Auto to Awesome is different, because it's a one-stop shop, so EVERYTHING you need to know is right there, laid out for you, in order, broken down step by step - so you see how it all works as a whole.
Provided you want to take professional quality photos, then yes, this is for you! The course itself focuses on improving your photography skills so you can take images that are so much more than snapshots - regardless if your audience will only ever be your family and friends!
Yes! There are several ways to get support. You can ask questions directly with the course itself, or you can post in our student Facebook group - either way you'll get targeted, personalised advice as soon as humanly possible. We also have monthly live coaching sessions, which is also a great time to ask questions and get clarity on anything that is holding you back.
You bet! You get 30 days to take the course for a test drive, and if it doesn't live up to your expectations, I will gladly give you a refund. All you need to do is write to me letting know why it wasn't right, and you'll get every single dollar back.
When you enroll, you'll get instant access to the entire course so you can go at your own pace, plus you have "lifetime" access to the course materials, so you can work to your own schedule!
Although the principles of photography are universal and timeless, this course has been created specifically for those wishing to get great images of people either in lifestyle / documentary situations, or posed portraits. However, you can take the skills you learn to cover a multitude of different photography skills - from macro to street to landscapes.
I think there must be more free information available than ever before, but all that's doing is leaving us overwhelmed and frustrated. If you're not aware of what you need to learn and how it all fits together, all the free information in the world won't do you the blindest bit of good! Plus content delivered online is not linear - so it's all a jumbled mess of random information (and that's if you managed to stop yourself getting distracted by cute dog photos) so it rarely makes sense, and you pretty much never get all the info. This course will walk you, step by step, through the maze of learning photography, and how to take great photographs, so you can simply follow a "recipe" for success.
Your success in this course will definitely NOT depend on you having a top of the range camera and the latest L lens. I promise, once you start to understand manual mode, light and composition, you'll start to get fantastic images with your entry level camera and kit lens.
You'll have "lifetime" access to the course which means that as long as the course is actively enrolling students (and we’ve been running it for over 3 years with zero plans to stop!) you'll have access to it on the online portal - along with any updates or improvements we make! If we ever do decide to stop enrolling, you'll be given plenty of advance notice, and be able to download all course materials.
Checkout securely with PayPal or Credit card. You’ll instantly be taken to the course website to view the course, and within minutes you’ll receive your confirmation email.
You’ll have instant access to all the trainings and video tutorials so you can get started right away! You’ll get immediate access to all the bonuses too.
Get stuck into the lessons and do a happy dance as it all make sense! Continue to grow your skills and get next-level images as you dive into the step by step training.
“If anyone is on the fence about this course, you should definitely sign up! I’ve dabbled and tried to learn photography concepts for years, but this course finally put it all together for me and was a game changer in how I understand shooting in manual. ☺️”
“I got my camera for my birthday in June of this year and I knew ABSOLUTELY nothing about photography. Basically I knew how to turn my camera on and that was it. And now I’m doing paid family photography and feel confident about what I’ve learned….I recommend all her courses if you're serious about investing in your photography! ”
“My first attempts to learn photography ended in much frustration because I couldn’t wrap my brain around the numbers. I read every book out there and even took online and local classes. Just when I was about to give up, I found Audrey online. Simply stated, Audrey can teach in a way that makes sense. She explains the technical, brain hurting elements of photography in a way that makes you say “Oh now I get it!” I have never had so many light bulb moments, and trust me, I’ve tried all the other options out there!
