Mom Photographers

One of my favorite families to photograph is the Grubers and their twin girls! Probably cause they are some of the sweetest people on the earth. We’ve become friends since I first captured their girls at 6 weeks almost 2 years ago.

We do our summer shoot every year and then last year Melissa has this idea to do an extra shoot in the fall for Christmas pictures. Have 6 families come for a 45 minute shoot at the orchard for 1/2 price. $225 plus tax. I’m waiting to see which Saturday won’t be a wedding and I’ll get it on the blog. The first 6 families will get the discounted price and a slot for the shoot!

Melissa sent me this email last week and I wanted to share her cool photo ideas with you:

Hi Noemi-
Thank you so much for you kind words!  I love your blog and enjoy reading it all of the time.  I just started a blog…mostly for the girls, here is the web site:

Yes, I would love to be part be part of the photo shoot in the fall…and the Apple Orchard would be perfect place and the timing would be great.  I love your family pictures from last year at the Orchard…so that would be so much fun.  Thank you for thinking of doing this…I think it will be great!  Hopefully, it will be great for your business too 🙂

I can’t wait to see your photos from Vegas…I read about you forgetting your camera and it made me laugh…I am the same way…worried about so many other things, the one thing I really want to remember I forget and it is typically the camera.  I am working on a 365 day project…taking a picture everyday…there is a link on the side of it on the blog.  I LOVE it!  Now, I just want to get a new camera, which is on my list of things this year…I am hoping by Christmas I can get one.  But, for now I just use my little Canon point and shoot.

I have been thinking about you and was going to email you this picture (see attached).  I just made a new frame from an old window and put all of the pictures from our last shoot with you.  I love how it turned out and wanted to share it with you, since the beautiful pictures are your work.


Also, let me know what dates are open in June for the girl’s 2nd year pictures…I can’t wait.  I am already looking for outfits!
Thanks again for being open to this idea and I hope it is a good one for you and your business.

Talk Soon!

Conversations with Melissa and other mom’s has really caused me to this about hosting a Mom Focused Photography Workshop! Basically over 3 week nights (once every other week – giving time for you to put some things into practice) I’ll go through camera basics, photography tips, lighting techniques FOR MOM’s…how to find cool spots in your own home and capture your kids through out the year! What do you think? Any interest? I’m thinking about doing it in the fall. I’d love your feedback though.

Thanks again Melissa for sharing your blog and your pictures!

I would LOVE that Mom Focused Photography Workshop. Hopefully, I will have my new camera too. I am looking at getting the Nikon D60. It is on my list this year and I am hoping by fall/winter I can get it.

Keep me posted on this workshop and the cost, because I would be very interested. Now, that I have K&M, I just love taking their pictures and creating so many things with them.

Thanks Noemi!

CUTE! I love the Grubers as well and am so glad I brought the 2 of you together. I have loved watching this relationship grow and you capturing those memories for them, Noemi. It is very special to see you capture them so beautifully.

Meliss, great job on the window! I have one also and love it!

Great idea for the worskshop, N. You know I can help in whatever way you might need.

Love you both.

I’ve been following your blog since the morrison’s, but I don’t think I’ve ever commented… you don’t know me, but I do live in the twin cities (St Paul side), and this mom focused workshop TOTALLY sparks my interest. I would LOVE to participate in something like this.

This past Christmas I got the D60, and love it, but am overwhelmed with the functionality and don’t really know how to use it (except for the auto basics). Please keep me posted on what you might decide… I have a 2 1/2 year old and 6 mo old, awesome picture times!

Thanks for thinking about putting something like this together!

I would be VERY interested in the MOM focused workshop. I would love to learn how to take better picutres of my two litle girls age 3 1/2 and 21 months. I have a Rebel XT which I just use to take the basic pictures and have not explored the functions that it is capable of.

Thanks for the great ideas!!!
