Scholarship for a Photography Loving Mom (April 2016 Workshop)

Me Ra’s popular spring 2-Day Dallas CONFIDENCE Workshop is coming up quickly.  For the last eight years, she and Brian have had the opportunity to give numerous scholarships to moms who wouldn’t otherwise have the means to attend this special workshop.  But this scholarship isn’t for just any mom.  It’s a scholarship for a photography loving mom who is running on empty.  Do you know a mom running on empty?  If yes, keep reading!

It’s very common for each workshop to have a mix of total beginners AND paid pros from graduating seniors to young moms to published, paid women photographers to aspiring photo-loving grandmas.  Yet, no matter how diverse the group is all the women have one thing in common, they desire solid confidence in their photography.  That’s why Me Ra and Brian call this richly packed 2 days, the CONFIDENCE workshop.  But not only is there three spots left to register for, there is also a reserved spot for a special mom.  Me Ra and Brian have set aside a special scholarship seat for one woman.

Nominations must be in by Thursday, March 31st at 9pm CST.

We will announce the winner in time for her to jump in and make all the arrangements. So make sure your nominations are all in by Thursday, 3/31, at 9pm CST. If you are not familiar with this scholarship, read Me Ra’s description below and see what it’s all about!  Moms are one of the most beautiful, powerful people in our life. This contest is all about acknowledging their purpose, even when they are Running on Empty (and they sometimes know it least of all).

Note from Me Ra:

“In honor of how wonderful moms are and all that they do and give, Brian and I keep one spot reserved in (almost) every CONFIDENCE workshop for a special mom like YOU!  That’s right, you (or she) will get a free pass to the upcoming CONFIDENCE Workshop in the Dallas area!  This is a $1249 value, wrapped in a weekend of inspiration and creativity.  (Please note, we don’t provide room/board and travel.)

To nominate a mom, you must post a comment below telling us about the mom who you think deserves a big break in life! If you are a mom, you’re probably laughing because we ALL deserve a serious break. But the moms we’re looking for are the ones who have had a ridiculous amount of stress in their life whether from trauma or things just not going her way. She is a mom in your life that needs a serious blessing. She needs a serious surprise that gives her empty tank some fuel. If she is a woman that has miscarried, she is still a mom in my mind b/c I know her heart became a mother’s heart the moment she found out she was pregnant. Don’t hesitate to nominate her too.

I’m proud to say that some of our previous winners stepped out on a limb and nominated themselves. Take courage in them and feel free to nominate yourself if you know you need a serious break. Who knows, you may have your house remodeled Oprah!  Yep!  A previous winner went on to nominate her family’s story and home.  You never know what will happen when you put yourself out there.  And you are worth it.  You are worthy of all the goodness life has to give.  Let Brian and I bless you and your creative spirit with this special scholarship for photography loving mom.”

After the due date, Me Ra’s team will collect all the nominees, have a wonderful committee of former scholarship moms vote, and then announce the winner in the next week on Me Ra’s Facebook page!  Choosing one mom is not an easy job. As one said recently, “After reading each story I’d say, ‘I’m voting for HER’.”  Each one of you is so deserving.

Nominate the mom who is coming to your heart right now.  Nominate her today, and together, let’s turn her day (maybe even life) around!
