You know that Drew is one of my favorite people, right?
We have so much stinking fun together, and working with her is a straight up dream.
She is an amazing teacher, and I have been patiently asking (or more like totally, obnoxiously, relentlessly, begging and demanding) her to host a workshop in her swoon worthy studio.  
She has a way of sharing her vast knowledge and remarkable skills in a generous and approachable way.  She can teach like you wouldn't believe.  The first time we met, I got to see her in action as she led a mentoring session.  The care, encouragement, and training was so effortless and seamless, it seemed as if you were just chatting with an old friend.  An old friend that somehow magically shows you how to master all of the weird settings on your big old camera, and begin to take the photos you never thought you would be able to take.
So to shut me up and stop the incessant nagging, she came up with the most lovely of ideas.  
Camp Mom*Tog!

I knowwww.  Intro to photography + photography related crafts + cupcakes.
The dreamiest of days.

Will you come to camp with us?

{In Drew's words.  Because she says it all so perfectly}
We will be meeting at my studio in beautiful Downtown Fullerton, California.  The workshop will last from 12 - 5ish (we will go later if need be) with the photography instruction lasting 2 hours and crafting instruction lasting another 2 hours.  We will have a one hour break in between to eat cupcakes and mingle and ask any questions you may have.  In order to keep Camp Mom*tog small and intimate there will be a maximum of 12 attendees and groups will be broken down to 6 in order to get the one on one attention from each instructor.
The Intro to Photography course is for those moms who own a DSLR camera (the type of camera where you can change the lens) and who want to learn how to take control of their camera and shoot on manual.  I will be explaining aperture, shutter speed, ISO, and how they all relate to one another.  We will be reviewing different types of lighting situations.  And, lastly, we will go out on a photo safari with a couple of real kid models to put what we've learned into practice and earn your photography badge.  This photography course is aimed at busy moms who are not planning on starting a photography business, but rather want to learn how to shoot the best images straight from their camera without having to spend tons of extra time editing them in Photoshop.
To earn your arts and crafts badge, Julie will be instructing you on a fun photography related project that can either be used as props in your shoots or to display your beautiful pictures in your home.  Julie knows that any good day involves power tools, fabric, and paint, and this day at camp will have you working with all three.  And if you're scared of glue guns, like I am, she can help you get over that fear!
The cost to register for Camp Mom*tog is $350 and is due in full at registration in order to hold your spot.  If for some reason you are unable to attend camp, you may transfer your spot to another camper.

We are so genuinely excited to meet and work with you at camp!


  1. Sounds pretty perfect to me. Now lets get one scheduled for us gals on the East Coast:)

  2. Oh. My. Word. That sounds like the dreamiest day in the history of ever. I want to go soooo bad!! Don't think I can justify a plane ticket to Cali for one day though..... so sad.

  3. Seriously wanting to try and work this out. Having a baby attached to me may make it difficult, but I've been wanting to figure out my darn camera for a while now. And you leading crafts? Bonus!!
