Shoot Along Photography Class:: Week 2

My second week of my photography short course was a fun one! This week, we focused on composition, which gave me an opportunity to try shooting with rule or thirds, leading lines and symmetry in mind. I really took advantage of our online community this week and relished in the many ideas and photograph ideas that were posted in our private FB group. That, in addition to comments from our two instructors, and I can easily say I learned a lot. My hands-on practice – and the results I’m seeing – continues to give me the confidence that I need to keep going!...


Review:: Post Pal Club

At our house, we love to take it old school and write actual letters. You know, the kind that requires a stamp and a short walk to the mailbox, followed by participation from the US Postal Service and appropriate wait time for a response. Ah, the nostalgia of wait time and pencil-and-paper writing in this fast paced world set by technology. It’s refreshing, to say the least. When I first heard about the Post Pal Club, I was excited about the simplicity of personalized pre-stamped post cards that came ready for my children to write and send! When I saw the cute designs...

Book:: Choose Healthy Live Happy

I had the honor of reviewing a fellow mom’s newly published book – Choose Healthy Live Happy: Take Your Family From Sick and Surviving to Healthy and Thriving – and I couldn’t put it down. For those of you who know my Mojitos & Munchkins family personally, you know that “Sick and surviving” is the perfect way to describe our clan over the past several years. We came to accept it for what it was and used the excuses of “we have young kids in daycare, so…..” and “everyone else is sick too, it’s just the season,” before we realized...

The Newest Mammarazi on the Block

Dear Mojitos & Munchkins family, It is no secret that I like love strongly adore photographing my children. Where they see me, they see a mom fanatically taking photos. My mammarazi’ing has taken on different phases throughout my years. Pre-children, I could be seen proudly carrying around my Digital SLR camera, properly worn around my neck while shooting, and just-as-properly put away in its’ traveling case when I wasn’t. Child #1 came around, and I continued to document every big (and small) milestone, but eventually gave up on “properly” wearing the neck strap. After all, kids move so damn fast that...
