dimoffs on film :: yan fam way, pdx

I recently had the honor of teaching alongside the one-and-only Yan Palmer at her Yan Fam Way, Portland workshop; and because she is a magical magnet who attracts other incredible beings, the workshop was hosted by one of my nearest-and-dearest Kati Dimoff, who also modeled for the workshop (in front of 12 photographers) and made it look effortless, because in addition to being smart, talented, and hilarious, Kati is also breathtakingly beautiful (as is the rest of her family, of course). I think that might have been the longest run-on sentence ever, but I haven't blogged in a hundred million years so we're just gonna keep going before I decide to scrap it and never blog again. Ahem, where was I? So not only was I beyond honored and thrilled to be invited as a special guest at Yan's workshop, I was excited to play with shooting film while there. I'm pretty dang pleased with the results... Posy Quarterman Photography, www.photoposy.com

this one's for the mamas

Posy Quarterman Photography, www.photoposy.comYou've asked and now, I'm delivering, but not alone. Because that's how we mamas do things right? As a village. It's just so much more fun to do things with friends! Kelly and I are thrilled to offer a workshop for mamas who are specifically NOT professional photographers; mamas who strive to take better photos of their kids on the day-to-day, both with their phones and with their "big girl" cameras. And why not do it at the beautiful Oregon Coast, with our silly (and often uncooperative) girls as our "models"? We'll eat cookies, talk photography, take some photos, take some more, do a little editing, do a lot of laughing, and then maybe we'll finish with bubbly and a splash in the hot tub. Three spots were scooped up before we could even announce it, but 9 spots remain... Please email me to secure your spot: posy@photoposy.com. Yay! *One little extra note: while our girls will be present, they will be cared for and looked after, and will only be involved in part of our workshop. We want you to have a fun, low-stress, mostly-kid free afternoon!
