I can't believe in 3 short days I will be meeting MeRa Koh and attending her Confidence Photography Workshop in Chicago! I did a whole lot of begging to get my husband on board but I know he'll be happy in the end because I'll be so much more confident as a photographer and a woman. If you are not familiar with MeRa, I encourage you to visit her blog. She is a regular on the Nate Berkus show and she's also had her work featured on the Oprah Winfrey Show. [Sidebar - sniff, sniff - I will miss watching her show everyday, I literally grew up watching the show]. I will be attending the workshop with 25 uber talented women and I look forward to learning so much from them too.
If you are looking for a great photography book on taking pictures of babies, you'll definitely want to purchase MeRa's best selling book, Your Baby in Pictures. I really love the book and I think it's a great book for any new parents even if they are using a point and shoot. And yes, I am going to be that nerd that gets my copy autographed!
I'll share much much more when I get back on Monday! In the meantime, keep snapping away.
