Mamas with Cameras is lead by co-founders Mary Balmaceda and Wenmei Hill, and we are passionate about making digital photography fun and accessible. We all want memorable photos of our lives, but sometimes the technology behind today’s digital cameras can feel overwhelming.  Our fun, hands-on workshops cut through the technical jargon and give practical settings and tips that will help you instantly take better pictures of the things (and people) that matter to you. We also host free monthly meetups and photo walks with fun speakers and exercises to help take your photography to the next level!

Our photography workshops are geared towards mamas and other women who want to get more comfortable with their DSLR or mirrorless cameras in a non-technical, community-based setting. We also offer monthly meetups and photo walks in the Seattle area that include guest speakers and photo projects, so that women who are passionate about photography can have a welcoming community to advance their learning.
