Earlier this month I photographed a very inspirational mama. If you don’t know her already, you should.
This is Meghan. Not only is she a beautiful mama who makes beautiful littles, she founded and runs the CoquitlamMommy drop-in group. This group is more than just your average mama’s group. Every Wednesday afternoon Meghan brings in a thoughtful and relevant speaker to educate her group of mamas of littles under one year old. I’ve been tempted to try and sneak in to her events more than once, even though my littles are a little too old.
What Meghan does with this group is more than just give mamas an excuse to get out of the house and chat with others in the same phase of life. She is truly gifted at educating mamas and empowering them to make the choices that are right for their family.
And if, like me, your littles are a little too old to attend, she also runs in-depth weekend workshops, tackling skills and issues we all deal with – potty-training, sleep troubles and CPR to name a few.
Just in case she wasn’t busy enough, Meghan co-founded Mom Inc Movement, an organization devoted to helping mamas start, find or expand a business or career. They put on an amazing tradeshow and have tonnes of great resources on their website.
Tomorrow night I’m honoured to be photographing Meghan’s Mama-licious Ladies Night and Fundraiser event. Enjoy a night out with your friends while you’re pampered with spa services, wine tasting, a fashion show, makeovers and more. And, after your mini-makeover, I’ll be there to grab some new headshots to update your online look. Tickets are still available (I think) and the money raised is going to Wheel to Heal, in support of the Eagle Ridge Hospital Foundation.
This morning…. I’m off to coffee with another inspiring mama in business while our littles play. And congratulations to the mama of the beautiful boy born yesterday and the mama who’s going to welcome her boy today. Looking forward to photographing your newest additions later this week.
