Me Ra Koh Giveaway: Win a $400 Gift Card to a Confidence Workshop, Book, and DVD


For those of you who don’t know Me Ra, she often appears as the photo expert on NBC’s The Nate Berkus Show. Last week, she was featured in The New York Times!  She has a bestselling book Your Baby in Pictures and an award winning, instructional DVD series called Refuse to Say Cheese.  She is proud to be a SONY Artisan of Imagery and with her husband, co-founded SOAR!, an annual scholarship for women who want to soar with their photography dreams!  She and her husband, Brian, travel the country teaching their CONFIDENCE photography workshops for women.  Their workshops have SOLD OUT for the last FOUR YEARS!  They travel the world with their two children, capturing moments through the lens of a camera. Beyond their passion for photography is a vision to see people find confidence in things they never dreamed of doing. Often this is as simple as a mom understanding how to use her new camera. Me Ra Koh is thrilled to join us for the #gno Twitter Party!


Are you ready to gain CONFIDENCE in 2011? This workshop is for women only (sorry guys). This workshop is a power packed weekend that is meant to empower women by helping them understand their cameras—turning “happy accidents” into consistent success. All levels come from the mom who is afraid to take her new camera out of the box to the woman running a side photography business.  Coming from a Masters degree in teaching, Me Ra brings a number of teaching strategies to the workshop so every woman walks away with CONFIDENCE in using her camera. But this workshop is more than a photography workshop. True to their reputation and the testimonies you've read, Brian and Me Ra have a heart to bring inspiration, encouragement and vision to women. They will make you laugh so hard your side will be aching. And then be prepared because their stories may bring tears too. Me Ra and Brian have a goal to refresh women, build their CONFIDENCE and help them capture the photos they want. But not only help women shoot better photos, but also, have the understanding behind HOW they got their favorite photos so they can replicate their successes again and again.  (This year Brian surprised Me Ra with a special birthday blog post, CLICK HERE to read 100 plus moving comments that women left not only about Me Ra but also the impact the CONFIDENCE Workshop has had on their lives!)

The following are dates for the various workshops throughout the fall:


Capture the story of your baby’s first year! The first twelve months of your child’s life are full of precious, fleeting moments, from sleepy newborn yawns to first smiles and wobbly first steps. Why entrust your memories to hastily taken snapshots—or worse yet, none at all? Let professional photographer (and mom) Me Ra Koh help you capture the moments with 40 beautiful “photo recipes” anyone can do, with any camera. Telling your baby’s story in pictures has never been easier!
