  • #88 A Journey of Self-Worth and Discovery with Phyllis Myers

    #88 A Journey of Self-Worth and Discovery with Phyllis Myers

    05/05/2020 Duración: 49min

    I’ve been thinking a lot lately about what I’d like life to look like when this is all over. Admittedly, this pandemic seems to shine a light in the places we’ve been ignoring far too long. It’s uncomfortable and it makes me question my confidence.  Who am I? What do I value? How do I want to show up for myself and my family? Where do I concentrate my time and energy and resources right now? What is fair to expect of myself right now? A few weeks ago, we wrapped up teaching our first Teentography kids virtual class and we're starting teaching another one this week. With the help of these kids, I find the answers to those questions coming into clarity. I’ve learned from these kids, who are picking up a camera and sharing their hearts with me, how to lean into creativity and let go of expectations These teens have breathed life into me on the days where I just couldn’t for myself. And they're helping me remember there isn't anything I need to DO or anyone I need to BE in order to claim worth and confidence. As

    Right now, life is NOT normal. Our routines and schedules are being tested big time. When I scroll through my news feed, I see stories of moms trying to make sense of the wacky, cooped-up home-life that we are all trying to navigate right now. I see mom’s trying desperately to homeschool – trying to make sense of the distance learning her school system just implemented last week. Many of us resorting to tablets just to keep our kids entertained. Our mental health and self-worth are being tested. Everything feels upside down. I want to remind you that your SELF WORTH is not linked to how good you do during a pandemic. Your SELF WORTH really isn't linked to anything at all. Know that right here, right now, you have permission to press pause. It's okay to take a breath and find your new rhythm. It's ok to do this #quarantime (quarantine time) your way. This month at Momtography we're diving deep into self-discovery, self-awareness, and feelings of worth. We urge you to lean into how YOU most want to show up. T

    #86 Finding The Deeper Meaning In Our Photos With Linsey Davis

    Never in my wildest imagination did I expect to be broadcasting right now while quarantined at home.  We're currently on day 13 of my daughter being home from school, and our governor here in Virginia just made the call that schools will be closed until the fall. At the very least, a lot of our friends and their kids are grieving. And rightfully so. There's a lot of sadness and uncertainty right now.  Because our reality right now is not ever something my imagination could have dreamed up as even remotely possible during this lifetime.  Even though they are not the same, I find myself comparing the Covid 19 Pandemic to our pregnancy loss back in 2009. The trauma of both of these scenarios then and now are real. We had expectations and plans – we had imagined how life would be. And now the reality of what's actually unfolding is totally different. It’s tragic and disappointing.  But the cool thing about imagination is that we can use it to shift our perspective even during the hardest moments and find the good

    #85 Parenting With Curiosity And Creativity In Mind With Dayna Abraham

    17/03/2020 Duración: 52min

    Three years ago, our daughter was diagnosed with ADHD and anxiety. Surprisingly, my reaction was not one of sadness or fear or worry. My immediate reaction was one of relief. Our kiddo’s diagnosis brought me relief because it gave me permission to honor and advocate for who she is. Her diagnosis reminded me how lucky I am to mother a child who is so comfortable with her creativity, and it led me to my own ADHD diagnosis not too long after hers. Here at Momtography we are champions for imagination and creativity, not only for our children, but for us as parents and role models as well. Today’s return guest, Dayna Abraham, is the founder of Lemon Lime Adventures and creator of the Calm The Chaos Framework where she supports parents out-of-the-box kids going from just surviving to thriving. I wanted to have Dayna on the show to talk about what happens when we infuse more curiosity and imagination into our parenting, especially when we are feeling the most defeated or disconnected from our kids. We talked about

    #84 Turning Creative Vision Into Fine Art Photography With Natalie Allgyer

    I am not a Barbie mom. The reason I'm not a Barbie Mom is that when my daughter asks me to sit and "play" with her– whether it be with her Barbies or lego or stuffed toys–I freeze. Imagination is not my superpower. And...I don't think I'm alone in this. As a mom, my guess is you are more accustomed to cycling through your endless to-do list or getting your family from point A to point B than expressing your creativity.  Somewhere between childhood wonder and adult responsibility, we lose sight of what it means to play. We forget how to use our imagination and express ourselves creatively. And that is why all this month at Momtography we're exploring imagination and how we can infuse it into our lives and our photos in a way that makes us feel excited–not awkward. For today’s return-guest, Natalie Allgyer, (Episode #68) photography started like it does for many new moms, taking photos of just her daughter. As her photos improved and people began asking her to start a family and newborn business, something didn

    #83 Making Creativity A Nonnegotiable Daily Habit With Tammy Blefeld

    18/02/2020 Duración: 01h01min

    Quick: what would you do with 10 minutes to yourself? Just 10 minutes to connect with the blissful peace and quiet you crave.  We know we need it. But how often do we actually give ourselves that time? I want to let you in on a little secret. If you aren't giving yourself this time, you aren't alone. Many of us moms have far too many responsibilities to be able to connect with ourselves and our creativity on a regular basis. But there is hope. Because when you do make the time and you do start giving yourself those 10 minutes, your life will change.  When I was still working full time as a teacher and building Momtography on the side, I would often rush out of my school building at the end of an exhausting day and immediately drive to daycare to reconnect with my daughter. After the brutal commute home, I'd be met with a barrage of to do's – dinner prep, playtime, bathtime, bedtime dishes, laundry... The list goes on and on.  I just needed 10 minutes to connect with me.  Then one day I had the idea to try a l

    Mom guilt.  My guess is that you are no stranger to the complicated feelings of self-doubt, shame, and uncertainty that come with raising kids. The guilt creeps in in all sorts of ways.  You find yourself endlessly wondering: am I doing this right? Am I ruining my child? Will this be the terrible moment in their memory 20 years from now?  As a new mom nine years ago, I naively thought that as my own daughter got older, these guilty feelings would subside, but here we are. Honestly, sometimes I'm not sure how to fill the space besides swirling in more mom guilt, but I also know that my camera is there to help me reconnect, to actually see these challenges and transitions in a more positive light.  This month at Momtography, we are exploring how moms connect, not only with their families but with themselves too. And in today's episode of Capture What Matters, I'm talking to Valerie Schoenfeld, a mom of three who decided, at seven months pregnant with her third baby, that she was ready to start a photography bus

Valerie is a northern Virginia lifestyle photographer and mom to 3 little boys 4 and under. It was after becoming a mom that her love for photography took on a new journey. She  wanted to be able to capture all those fleeting moments and remember each stage of her children’s lives, so she bought her first DSLR camera in the fall of 2015 shortly after her first was born. A new spark was ignited in the spring of 2019 when she took photos for people she had never met in an attempt to save up for a photography course. Little did she know, that decision would bring forth this overp
