As of yesterday, we are officially SOLD OUT for our upcoming San Diego workshop in May! Brian, Carey and I are all so excited!!
Now it’s time to do my favorite contest of all! We have saved one spot for the mom who wins the new Running on Empty contest!
Here’s how it works!
In honor of how wonderful moms are and all that they do and give, Brian and I have reserved one spot in the San Diego Women’s Workshop from Friday, May 23rd to 26th for a special mom YOU nominate! That’s right, she’ll get a free pass to the beginner workshop as well as the Add On day with Carey and I talking about the business side of starting/enhancing your photography business!
To nominate a mom, you must post a comment telling us about the mom who you think deserves a big break in life! If your a mom, you’re probably laughing because we ALL deserve a serious break. But the moms we’re looking for are the ones who have had a ridiculous amount of stress in their life whether from trauma or things just not going her way this year. She is a mom in your life that needs a serious blessing to come her way. She needs a surprise giving her empty tank some fuel. If she is a woman that has miscarried, she is still a mom in my mind b/c I know her heart became a mother’s heart the moment she found out she was pregnant.
I’m proud to say that our last two winners stepped out on a limb and nominated themselves. Take courage in them and feel free to nominate yourself if you know you need a serious break. Who knows, you may have your house remodeled by Oprah! 🙂
We’ll collect all the nominees, have a committee of wonderful moms vote, and then announce the winner in the next few weeks!
Nominate her today, and turn her day around!
Be sure to let her know you’ve nominated her too! If I was a mom nominated I’d love to know that my friends were thinking of me whether I won or not!
Are you considering coming to one of our 2008 workshops?
If so, we still have some spots left in the upcoming Sonoma/Wine Country Workshop (April 25th-28th, 2008–the night of the 25th and 28th is optional)! Hurry and sign up before this workshop sells out too! (this is the only workshop we are taking registration for in 2008 as of now)

Feedback from Past Workshop Attendees!
“This was the BEST day I’ve had in a long timeâ€¦it was so nice to wade through and be challenged, laugh along the way, conquer a fear, and leave wanting more. What a day! I can’t thank you enough!”
“I’ve had the aperture, shutter speed, and ISO lecture more times than I can count. This was the first time I’d heard it from a woman’s perspective, and the first time it really made sense!”
“I feel like I’m not just a better “photographer” but a better person! Thank you!”
“I loved the analogies as they weren’t technical but instead practical.”
“Me Ra has a gift in being able to teach technical material in a learnable way.”
