Things have been a whirlwind since our California trip last month.  Life has been busy, busy and it doesn’t look like it’s going to slow down any time soon.  If we’re friends on Instagram you may have seen some of these images.

– Hudson is officially enrolled in Kindergarten for next year.  Cue the mama tears!

– One of my best friends got married a few weeks ago and asked me to photograph the event.  But, she threw me for a loop.  You see…she called me on Tuesday and said she was thinking of getting married on Friday.  My type-a mind was blown.  How on earth could you plan a wedding in just days?  Well…she did it.  And it was beautiful.  I was honored to get to capture her marry her love of 15 years and get to reunite with my friends from high school.

Those of you that have been asking for an online Mamarazzi class…today is your lucky day!  Ashley and I are hosting our first webinar on Saturday, April 12th.

Mamarazzi Webinar

Cost:  $175.00 includes a PDF version of our workbook as well as access to an alumni-only private Facebook group where you can ask questions and communicate with us long after the class.  Purchase your seat here:

 http://athompson1.photobiz.com/cart/product_detail.cfm?productID=192592&categoryID=39242

What we will cover:  The basics of photography including what aperture, shutter speed, and ISO are and how they work together.  We’ll go from shooting in auto or semi-automatic modes to shooting in manual and nailing the exposure of each photo you take (Hooray for no more dark or blurry images!).  We’ll also talk about lighting, composition, and how to take more creative storytelling photos of your child.

How it will work:  We will meet online at 10am CST.  Ashley and I will go over our presentation as you watch.  As we go through if you have any questions our moderator will pass them along to us.  You will also be emailed a recorded copy of the class afterward to re-watch if need be.

It will be a first for us…but we have absolutely loved teaching this class for the last four years and are excited to teach those of you who can’t make it to Oklahoma for a class.  Can’t wait to see how your images change after just a few hours.  Reach out to us if you have any questions at mamarazzioftulsa@gmail.com



We hosted a Mamarazzi of Tulsa workshop here at my home over the weekend.  This workshop marked the fourth year of Mamarazzi of Tulsa which just blows my mind.  Ashley and I were both on a high when everyone had gone home.  It’s such a dream to teach mamas how to do something that we’re so passionate about.

On Saturday fifteen ladies went from being confused and frustrated by their cameras to mastering their settings and shooting in manual mode by the day’s end.  So proud!  I also love Mamarazzi day because it inspires me to be more creative with my images of my children and get back to the documenting which I love so very much.

We are hosting only two more workshops for the year (we’re skipping a summer workshop this year because Ashley is due with her baby boy).  Tickets are now on sale for our April 5th workshop.  Visit Mamarazzi of Tulsa for more information or to buy your seat. Early bird registration opened up for those on our mailing list on Tuesday.  So, as of this post there are only a handful of seats left.  So if you’re interested make sure to snag your seat quickly!

If you’re not in Oklahoma remember that you can purchase a digital version of our workbook (seen below).  We’re also in talks about doing a webinar version of our class.  If you’re interested in that please send us an email to mamarazzioftulsa@gmail.com to join the webinar mailing list.
