We hope to see everyone at tomorrow’s Family Picnic! Remember, you would have had to RSVP on EventBrite to find out the location and let us know you are coming. This is a private (for Portland Bloggers/friends/family) event. We can’t wait to mingle and enjoy a hot Summer day with all of our blogging friends and family.
We are keeping the Family Picnic very low-key. We’ll have a few yard games available and a photographer on site to take photos. Other than that… it is all BYO everything! Bring your picnic gear, food, family, and SUNSCREEN!
- PHOTOS: Our photographer on site is Macey from Motormouth Studios. She’ll be hanging out from 11:00 am to 1PM taking photos of the families together, pretty picnic items, etc. She will make those photos available to you for printing or sharing purposes.
- CONTEST: In addition to all the fun photo work she is going to have an Instagram competition for those who have Instagram to participate in! The winner will receive a free family photo session (valued at $300!). Motormouth Stuidos Portland Bloggers’ Photo Competition Rules: 1. Instagram a pic of your family at the picnic 2.
