About a month ago we had our March meet-up at Jillian Rabe LLC ‘s The Space in the Pearl district of Portland. We had been gearing up for this meet-up pretty hard-core… I don’t know if we are just so excited that Spring is on the way or if it is just TIME after all the holiday craziness is over, but our Spring meet-ups the past two years have been AMAZING! (Check out last year’s spring meet-up.)
The “Strike a Pose” event was all about learning how to take better self-images for your blog and social media sites. Not all of the bloggers in our group take photos of themselves regularly. It was a great opportunity for people to get some tips on how to take better photos when they are the one in front of the camera. Thanks to area photographers & stylists, attendees also got the chance to get their photos styled and taken by some amazing pros.
Upon arrival guests got to start in on some delectable food items from Elephant’s Deli. Attendees were also given coupons to the deli with their check-in information that included a schedule of the event and a Tweet Sheet with sponsor’s twitter handles.
Area accessory and jewelry designers GlassCast, Chloe + Isabel, and Jade Rose offered up items to be worn in the photographs and donated items for a giveaway at the end of the event. Beauty specialist Marina McAvoy gave some last minute hair/makeup tips to attendees.
Check out some of the photos from the event’s photographer Macey Snelson of Motormouth Studio:
Check back throughout the next few weeks to see photographs taken by the other photographers at the event! And, for news on our May meet-up scheduled for May 18!
