Posted by on Sep 15, 2014 in Events | Comments Off on September 22nd Meetup: Group Shoot at Washington Park Arboretum

Hi Mamas!We are going to squeeze in one last group shoot this month before the darkness pushes our meetups indoors! September is the perfect time to start thinking about those fall family photos that you’ll use for your holiday cards & gifts. We will meet at the Graham Visitors Center and do a fun group walk around the arboretum. We’ll show and shoot as the light allows at some great locations within the Arboretum in particular, but also will give you compositional and planning and posing tips that you can use anywhere! Bring your camera, and if you have a kid that...

Exhibit is UP!

Posted by on May 6, 2010 in Announcements, Events | 1 comment

Last night at 11pm, five hours after we kicked off the work party at Studio R, we stood back and took a look at the exhibit that our community of mamas has created. All I can say is: it absolutely took my breath away. To see all the images of our children beaming off of the walls, and to feel the love that’s pouring out of each and every image, is something very powerful. A BIG BIG thank you to our very dedicated set up crew: Sara, Wenmei, Cecilia, Nicki, & Stephanie!! They did not quit until we had it all figured out (and there was a surprising amount to figure out). I think that...

I have to say that when I logged onto the MPIX site on Wednesday morning, I got a bit choked up. I was so thrilled to see that we had moved from 23 submissions over the weekend, to OVER 70 PHOTOS SUBMITTED!!! And they were all SO beautiful! I could feel so much energy, love and stories from the images. I’m so happy that so many of the club members have decided to participate–it is going to be an awesome show! Can you tell I’m excited?? Some people asked about whether they can help with the show preparations, so I wanted to share some details: -We’ll be setting up the...

Photography show information, April meeting info & assignments!

Posted by on Apr 5, 2010 in Assignments, Events, Meeting Details | 2 comments

First off- thanks so much to everyone who came out to the March meeting! I have to say that our self portrait meeting last Monday was one of my personal all-time favorites! We had an intimate group of about 12 mamas who braved the self-portrait assignment, and though it was a challenge, everyone was happy that they had taken it on! We had incredible, heartfelt discussions about motherhood and life.  (I’m still all tingly.) All around, it was an amazing opportunity to learn something about ourselves and each other, and to hone our storytelling skills through our photos. This won’t...
