Photography Classes Coming Soon!

Wow, time flies! It’s hard to believe that it’s been nearly a year since I last posted… but what a sweet year it’s been.

My little one (who’s not so little anymore) and I had some great “just us” days while my oldest was off at school.

My oldest progressed greatly with his reading and was deemed no longer needing vision support with prism glasses.

I learned lots of new recipes as we found out our food allergies/sensitivities through an iGG blood test. Unfortunately we found egg both boys are highly sensitive to eggs (yolk and whites) so we sold our sweet chickens. :(

Btw, once we took all of our sensitive foods out of our diets aches and pains we didn’t even realize we had disappeared! I had no idea my little one was having headaches most days and my oldest one’s eyes were burning near continually. Thanks be to God for this new found information!

And to top everything off we went on a wonderful journey around the midwest this summer… 6 weeks exploring Estes Park, The Black Hills in South Dakota, Yellowstone, Salt Lake City, Moab (which was HOT, HOT, HOT), and Gunnison, Colorado. One of these days I’ll get on here and share vacation photos, but if you’re interested to see some now check out my instagram account and scroll down just a bit. :)

Now… both of my boys have started back to school and left me at home wondering what to do with all of my free time (other than dishes, laundry, errands, and cooking). I contemplated coming back to blogging on a regular basis (and I still might do that). But, God has laid upon my heart to use my giftedness (teaching) and my interest (photography) to serve the Thirsty and further His kindgom.

So, I’ve decided to offer private or small group lessons on “How to move out of Auto on your DSLR” in and around the DFW area in an effort to raise money for Living Water International (you know how much I love their work of providing clean water and sharing the Gospel all over the globe, right?).

If you know anyone who might be interested, send them this post!

I also wouldn’t be opposed to video chat lessons, if you’re interested in that or know someone else who might be. :)

Thanks for helping spread the word!

I haven’t determined a price yet (suggestions are welcome), but I do know that all proceeds from my lessons will go directly to Living Water International.

I’m super excited about spending an hour or two doing what I love in order for others to hear the Good News and have life-giving water for generations!


Here are a couple of referrals I’ve received from former students (more to come soon…):


“Michelle makes complicated photography jargon simple and easy to understand.  She gives clear, useful directions and encourages you to practice what you’re learning while she teaches you in a conversational, hands-on style.  Friendly, helpful, and eager to teach, I highly recommend Michelle Debenport as a fantastic photography teacher for both beginners and more advanced photographers alike.” – Michelle from Intentional.Me


“Michelle patiently explained the exposure triangle in a way I could understand while giving me some rules of thumb to remember for different settings. Her quick, easily absorbed tutorials changed my photography game, as evidenced by immediate results!” – Michelle from So, I Married a Mennonite


Yeah, Michelle is a pretty popular name. ;)


“When my camera was so new, and my skills so poor, it was Michelle who first took me under her wing. She made complicated concepts easily understandable, empowering me to capture pictures with light and beauty in a way I hadn’t been able to before.” – Jacque from Mercy Found Me



Turning my passion for teaching AND others’ desire for learning how to use their DSLR camera INTO clean water and The Gospel message being shared around the world!

Let me know if you’re interested in a “How to move out of Auto” DSLR class. All proceeds will go directly to Living Water International - providing clean water in the name of Jesus. || Private lessons offered in and around the DFW area.
