Through the Eyes of a Mother:
A photography exhibit by Mamas With Cameras
Last weekend I participated in a photography exhibit at Cave B Estate Winery’s Woodinville tasting room: Through the Eyes of a Mother. This was my first photography show–and–I got to be ‘on the wall’ with spectacular photographers, mamas all. I felt immensely proud that I was able to be in the company of these women, so incredibly talented and creative.
I’ve been a member of Mamas with Cameras for nearly four years now. I joined the group well before I became a mom. I’m fairly certain I was the only mom who wasn’t a mom for the first two years I attended monthly meetups, and it’s possible I am the only adoptive mama in the group.
I am–without a doubt–a better photographer for having faithfully attended monthly meetups, each with a fun speaker and photography exercise. Every single month, when I come home from the meetup, I say to my husband, “Wow. That was great. I learned something new.” I have also taken several workshops the group offers: Introduction to Digital Photography; Working with Natural Light in Manual Mode; and, Introduction to Post-processing Lightroom.
But what I enjoy the most is…the Mamas. They teach me, support me, challenge me, and inspire me.
“As mamas, we are privileged to witness the beauty that is revealed in simple, everyday moments with our children. ‘This exhibit celebrates the enduring love of mothers everywhere.”
May your Mother’s Day be picture perfect!
