Kamee June Annual June (ahem, kinda) Sale

Insert Addendum (added at beginning, not end):

I know it’s nearly August. I know. I know this post is two months late. It would take ages to explain where I have been and why I didn’t just click publish on this when it was ready…Whatever, it’s up now!! ;) AND, the legit half-yearly is happening, so I AM just like Nordstrom!!! Eeeeee!! Kinda. Sorta. In my head. ;)

So the sale is actually EVERYTHING DURING THE MONTH OF AUGUST!!! August because it’s two months after June, one month after July…

Now read the real post, but where it says that you have to book by the end of June it really means by the end of August!! ;) Then email me with questions or to get yourself booked!!! xxx

And now for the post written, ahem, two months ago. Sorry for the delay!!

I like to think I am a little, just a little like Nordstrom. They have a half yearly, so I copy them, and have one too. Something in June, because I am thematic that way, and something half yearly, in November!! I like the June one, because, it’s, well, June!!

When people first meet me they usually ask about the June bit, or they call me Ms June-thinking it’s my last name. Kamee June is a pretty cute name, right? Kamee isn’t even my given name, Kamaree is, and June isn’t my last name; it’s my middle name. I was named after my Grandma June. Then I am usually asked if I was born in June, nope, July. Regardless, I love BOTH months!!

Anyway, enough about that, it’s June and it’s Half-Yearly SALE time!!! Everything Kamee June, EVERYTHING, during the month of June is 20% off!!! (this is the part where you insert August!!!) Hoooray!!!! You do not have to use what you purchase in June (August), you just have to use it within the next year, so before June 2016 (August 2016) (weddings are a little different; we can extend them a bit if you aren’t getting married for a while, but know you want to take advantage of the sale). It’s easy, email me (kamee@kameejune.com) tell me what you would like to buy for 20% off, remember EVERYTHING is included: portrait sessions, one on one mentoring sessions, wedding weekends with KJ, KJ gift cards (also 20% off! Perfect for friends or family and a great deal for you!! Buy a $100 gift card for only $80 with the 20% discount!!), AND my wedding packages are 20% off as well!! That’s right, because all of me, loves all of you…can you tell I shot weddings? ;) No, it’s because it’s JUNE!!!! Hooray!!!! Pay your deposit to lock in the the 20% deal (it will vary depending on what you purchase), and then you are set and we get to planning when you want to cash in (the balance is due the week we shoot, work together, gift cards will be sent over in pdf’s, or the month before you get married.)

So easy, just like finding the most perfect thing at the half yearly!!

And because everything is better with a photograph here is one of one of my brides getting married this summer!! This was shot at her friend, Kara Keough Bosworth’s, wedding. Her big day is coming this summer, and I can’t wait!!!! In two weeks actually; I can’t wait Court!!!!!

So excited to hear from all of you and be a part of your celebrating and memory making!! Much love, KJ2015-05-29_0005 copy

Excited to hear from everyone!! Until then, happy June!!!

Annual Kamee June Mamarazzi Workshop!!

I looked at my little girl the other day and then I looked again. There was something different about her, and it had happened overnight. I took in her in my arms and asked her if she would “stop growing!”

“Please, Lark, stop growing. Stay little forever!”

“I can’t Mom!!! I have to keep growing!!”

I loved the double meaning of what she was saying to me. I looked at her again and thought, “She is so beautiful. I am so glad she is mine.”

Again I was reminded of the power of the photograph: even though they do continue to grow, each day, the pictures we take make them stay little, forever.

Each year, in an effort to help moms (and dads) keep their babies little forever I offer a Mamarazzi Workshop! It’s the perfect Valentine’s, Mother’s Day, Birthday, Or I-Am-Worth-It-Damnit present! The class in previous years taught basic camera operations, lighting, and composition; however, this year is going to be a bit different, too!! I am shaking things up a adding to the mamarazzi curriculum!! It is going to be good!!!  If you have already attended, you can certainly come again and have a completely different experience!!

Mamarazzi: A Photography Workshop Designed Especially For Moms is intended for mothers (and fathers) who want to better understand their cameras as a goal to better document their own kids.

The Mamarazzi workshop will actually run over the course of 3 months (we will be meeting once a month for three months). At each meeting we will discuss a different aspect of photography, namely, how to work all the buttons on your camera and what they mean, how to understand light and it’s fundamental requirement to photography, and how to compose your shots to aid you with better story-telling capabilities. AND this year I will be adding more light information with a practicum mini-shoot designed to help us find each type of light and shoot properly in it; I am also including Lightroom, Photoshop, and workflow management tips and tricks (nothing too extensive, but enough to get you started!! You don’t need to own the programs to participate! It will just show you what you can do with your images if you decide to make and investment in those programs! And if you have them and are wondering how to use them, then this will give you some basics!). I will also teach how to blog your images properly as a way to document and journal your children’s lives as a keepsake for both them and you, and I will share my favorite album making processes and companies to further add to your capabilities as a memory maker. Each class will be about two hours and will be packed with information, a few goodies to take with you to inspire you to get to shooting, some great edibles, and a good time away from small people to rejuvenate for a bit. ;)

Who is this workshop for: Moms (and Dads) who want to understand their cameras, take better photographs of their children, and learn behind he scenes tips and tricks in terms of how to really give your pictures the extra “wow factor”!

When will the workshop be held: (remember it is three evenings)

March 28th 7-9pm

April 11th 7-9pm

and May 23rd 7-9pm

Why three evenings? I want to spread the information out a bit to give us all time to practice and create. We will be focusing on certain aspects each month, creating a discussion board and a place to post our images for safe feedback. (I also want us to have a ladies night, each month. That’s how I see it playing out in my head at least. We learn cool photography stuff and then hang out and relax a bit.)

Where the workshop be held: ORANGE COUNTY THIS YEAR!!!! It will be held at a residence in Aliso Viejo.

What to bring: Your camera (Doesn’t matter what you have, but it would be best if you had a dslr which basically means a camera where you can change out the lenses. If you don’t have one, it’s totally cool; this class is still geared for you!! If you are in the market for buying a new camera let me know and I will make some suggestions. When we get into the PS stuff you can bring your laptops if you like or you can just take notes and practice at home!)

What will all of this cost? $295.00 for the three evenings of workshopping! (Your tuition includes a whole bunch of great knowledge on how to shoot better pictures of your own children, incredible after- dinner edibles, and a few surprises to help inspire you to get to shooting.)

I want to keep the class smallish, so if you are interested jump on it. ;) I would love to meet you, and be able to discuss the most important role we have, and how to document it more passionately.

Join us! It’s going to be great!! Come and take advantage of this great offer to better learn how to document your child’s life.

Please email me at kamee@kameejune.com with any questions you might have!! Looking forward to meeting everyone!!

My Walking Fairytale, Mamarazzi III: A Photography Workshop for Moms

She’s a little walking fairytale. Filled with sprites, sparkly dragons, whimsy, and her very own, couture, love potions. And she has all of us, everyone in her kingdom, all her loyal subjects, completely, and utterly under her spell.

I want to freeze her pretty life, her brother’s too, make it stand still, just so I can drink them in a bit more!! I hope they know how much I love them; I hope they feel it, see it, and believe it, every single day. I hope they know they are my greatest accomplishments! I also hope I do justice to their youth by documenting it as often as I can. I know as parents we all feel a certain weight of responsibility in terms of our children: love them, educate them, teach them, prepare them. I also think we feel a responsibility to document them. Both of my kids have enjoyed looking at their baby books lately. It has been fun to reminisce with them, telling stories about the funny little things they “used to do”, and “used to say”. It reminded me of the importance to keep track of their fleeting memories.  The more women I talk to the more I discover that they too, want to take really great images of their children to immortalize this time in their lives, all of our lives. It’s time to start documenting everything whimsical and sweet (and even the not so sweet, but will- be- hysterically- funny- later- on) moments of your children’s and your life!

Mamarazzi: A Photography Workshop Designed Especially For Moms is intended for mothers (and fathers) who want to better understand their cameras as a goal to better document their own kids.

The Mamarazzi workshop will actually run over the course of 3 months (we will be meeting once a month for three months).

Side Note: If you have taken the class before, you are absolutely welcome to come again! The content will be similar, but I am changing things up a bit!! There will be some newness for sure!! ;)

A few mom’s from the first Mamarazzi class shared this:

To say Kamee is a good photographer would be true, but she’s more like incredible. To say Kamee is a good instructor would be true, but she’s more like inspirational. In one night, my eyes were opened to the power of a great image. Over the course of the workshop I began to feel like a true photographer for my little girl and family. Kamee taught us to compose beautiful shots using variable light for differing effects. She showed us how to operate our cameras and get more from them than automatic settings could produce. Kamee can teach anything and you will have fun; photography is her passion and you will likely take some of it with you. You will receive incredible support and encouragement from the other mommies too. If you are considering this workshop…sign up for sure!! –Anne

Mamarazzi turned my interest in photography into a passion. I learned how to capture the priceless personailities and precious memories of my little ones as they truly are in the moment which is something that my family and I will forever treasure. As an aspiring photography hobbiest, the class provided a foundation for future endeavors, as a mom, I was given the opportunity to learn how to beautifully document the lives of my children in a way that conveys how I see and treasure them everyday. Thank you kamee for that priceless gift! –Sandra

Went into this class wanting to learn what the buttons on my camera were. iIdid learn that and so, so, so much more! Not only did I learn to take beautiful natural pictures of my daughter but I unwrapped a new creative hobby! All the ladies in the class were so encouraging, inspiring, and sweet!!! And kamee, well I couldn’t have asked for a better teacher! I left so inspired and the passion is still burning strong! People ask me questions about their camera all the time now! It is not something I could just “quickly explain”. That’s why i HIGHLY recommend this class! –Monica

Please Email me with any questions you might have!! Looking forward to having you as a part of Mamarazzi III!
