Angie Warren, the heart and soul behind this blog, has worked so very hard to organize this amazing feature for you, and I do hope that you'll click on over for a visit, leave a comment or three, enter a giveaway, and subscribe to the blog.  Even better, grab a The Creative Photographer button and paste it to your own blog, tweet about it, share it with your friends and colleagues.  We'd be so grateful for you spreading the word!  We're excited to invite you to be a part of this wonderful sharing community of women.

As you know, for Angie's For The Love of Photography series last year, I was humbled and honored to be asked to write a guest post, telling my little story and exactly why I do what I do.  Soon after, I joined Angie's newly formed group of regular contributors and have loved every minute of it!  I can't tell you how amazing it feels to be among such talented, strong, insightful artists, mothers and women.  These girls are pretty fabulous, and I'm humbled to be able to be a part of this team.

PS... if you want to catch up on a few of my latest articles on The Creative Mama, you can read them HERE, HERE, HERE and HERE.  And you won't want to miss THIS ONE either. ;)


COMING SOON ON THE CREATIVE MAMA | tampa child photographer

As most of you know, I'm a monthly contributor to The Creative Mama, a blog that is near and dear to my heart.  Last year, Angie approached me about writing a featured article during her "For The Love of Photography" week.  I was thrilled to participate, and I absolutely loved working with her.  To my excitement, she asked me to come on board and write on a regular basis, and with that, I joined the magnificent team of truly inspirational women who make up The Creative Mama. This year's "The Creative Photographer" series promises to be just as fabulous as last year, with inspiring contributors such as Deb Schwedhelm (her work just drips with raw emotion, and I'm blessed to be able to call her my friend), Jose Villa (THE single most amazing film/wedding photographer on the planet), Joyce Smith (how I adore her and everything she touches; can't wait to see Joyce at her workshop this weekend!), Sarah Lane (really wonderful work, especially her senior sessions!), Brenda Acuncius (ahem, I may or may not have arranged marriages between her two gorgeous children and mine... just sayin'), Leigh Taylor (super stylish wedding and relationship photography; I had the pleasure of meeting Leigh and her family a few years ago), the lovely team at Luxecetera (I always sing their praises; they designed my branding for me!), and lots more fun stuff to be announced soon.  I've had the chance to meet most of the photographers (and designers) on this impressive list, and would love to meet the rest of them someday (Jose, are you listening?)!  ;)  I know that you'll be blown away when you see their work and read the words from their heart.  Go, now, and bookmark The Creative Mama site, subscribe to the RSS, and make sure to come back and read what Angie has in store for everyone this year!
