A few years ago I had an idea about getting women together to get their headshots taken.  It came to me after I took my own headshot, and realized how difficult it was to know what to wear, how to do my hair, and how weird it felt to take time for myself to do this.  I thought about how much more comfortable I’d be if I were around women who felt the same way and we could just kinda go through it together.  And given the serious anxiety I get from doing my hair & makeup under normal circumstances, I knew that that had to be apart of the experience.  And, the best part of easing nerves a little and relaxing would be a couple sips of wine and some yummy snacks!

 

I immediately went to my friend of 15 years who is a hair & makeup artist to see if she’d be interested in trying something like this with me. From our very first event in March of 2016, the parties have been fun, engaging and (kind of surprisingly) — empowering.  I couldn’t believe how consistently the women said how beautiful they felt, or that they didn’t even know they could look this good in a photo.  And it makes a lot of sense — we are constantly being shown photos of ourselves online, often taken by cell phone cameras with poor lighting or angles; giving us a really skewed perception of the way we look.

What if we took control, and made sure our images reflected our most beautiful selves?

Flash forward to August of 2018 — we’ve had 65 women come to 15 events.  We’ve been honored to get to know them from every ethnic background, ages ranging from late teens to early 70’s, and professions ranging from lawyer to student to educator to CEO to filmmakers and beyond.  We’ve found the sweet spot to be about 6 attendees — enough to have hair and makeup going while someone is having photos taken, and the others can chat and snack and get to know each other.  It lasts about 2 hours — some love to stay and chat after the photo session, some like to get in and get out.  No pressure, no cookie cutter experience where everyone's photos look the same, just ease.

 

The final product(s) are more than headshots — in addition to a studio backdrop we can run around the neighborhood, my studio’s outdoor spaces, and get anything from dating profile sexiness to super power-posing CEO images and everything in between.   We’ve tailored the packages to the needs we’ve seen come through the door: some women just need a quick shot for LinkedIn, some would love a gallery of images in a couple different outfits to use in a variety of ways.  Some just want hair or makeup, some want it all.

I’ve been asked here and there why it’s a party for women only, and the answer is simple: I’m a woman and I know how to create space for them that’s safe and inviting in my own studio.  The cool thing about the idea though, is that it’s totally mobile.  If you’d like to have a party like this and want me and my hair and makeup artist to re-create this idea in your space, we’d be happy to do it!  This can be tailored to any environment (personal or professional), so if your wheels are turning about bringing this to a community you are apart of, give me a call let’s get creative!  

 

If this speaks to you or someone you know, go ahead and fill out our interest form for the remaining events on Sept. 13th & Nov. 11th 2018 here.  There's more info here: morganshidler.com/headshothappyhour, our facebook invite is here, and our instagram page with lots of samples is here. If you have any questions, or want to chat through some ideas, please call me directly at (415) 516-6539 or email: info@morganshidler.com.

The historic exhibit “Hip Hop: Respect Style Wisdom” close this Saturday August 12th at the Oakland Museum of California, and it’s an amazing display of history central to the Bay Area and beyond.   

 

From the OMCA page

Hip-Hop is one of the widest reaching cultural and social movements of the last 50 years. Discover the under-recognized story of how Hip-Hop changed the world, starting from its roots on the streets before rap, DJing, graffiti, breakin’ (breakdancing), and street fashion launched into mainstream popular culture. Through photography, video, art, music, dance, fashion, and interactive gallery features, explore how Hip-Hop provides a platform for creative self-expression, activism, positive social change, youth development, entrepreneurialism, and education. Created in collaboration with and participation from numerous members of the Hip-Hop community, RESPECT: Hip-Hop Style & Wisdom tells a fresh story of the evolution of this global phenomenon, and includes a spotlight on Oakland and the San Francisco Bay Area’s influence on Hip-Hop culture.

 

The exhibit has been featured in everything from music publications like Vibe, and The Source to The Smithsonian and had a great feature on PBS News Hour.

 

I had the pleasure of taking photos for the opening event, and witnessing some of the greatest hip hop genius all in one place.  If you haven’t had a chance to see this historic exhibit at the Oakland Museum yet, you have a few more days and I can’t recommend it enough!

Photos Tell Your Business Story Better https://www.morganshidler.com/blog/2018/1/photos-tell-your-business-story-better There are so many ways our businesses thrive, and I can't stress enough how quality photos make all the difference.  I think some of us are a bit conditioned to think having a camera in front of us makes us vain.  I know that I definitely suffer from that!  I am the one behind the camera (duh!) so I get to avoid being in front of it!  Whoo hoo!! But I know that's to my detriment, as if I had more photos of me behind the scenes I'd probably tell a better story of me to my clients.

Enter my brave clients who have taken this leap for their businesses.  They are entrepeneurs who understand who important it is that their audience understand how amazing they are.  I have been working with more and more of them lately, and it's truly inspiring to sit down, discuss the images they are trying to achieve, and then work towards a final product together.  

For example, Alexis is building her awesome business, Move Happy Massage, and needed some quality photos to update her website.  It's important that her clients have a good idea of who she is, but also that her space is warm, inviting and therapeutic.  We had a ball shooting with her model, Heather, who is also a small business owner.  Turns out there's a very fine line between looking like you are giving a relaxing massage and working with a corpse!! haha..  I think we found a happy medium though, and her photos look not only amazing... more importantly they tell an accurate story of her amazing work as a masseuse.  

With Timur, from InTensional Running, there was a very similar need in a completely different industry.  As a running and wellness coach, much of his business relies on great relationships and it's equally important to show his expertise in the field.  We shot at Lake Merritt where is "office" is most of the time with clients, so they can see where they'd be and how friendly and easy going Timur is!  It was important to get a variety of shots in different outfits, so he can use them for lots of different promotional materials.

Estee Fletter has been my yoga teacher for years so I jumped at the chance to take photos and capture her magic at a retreat last year.  She is one of those truly humble teachers whose magic is hard to quantify, so I felt the pressure to get photos to tell her story! 

And sometimes there are unforseen reasons why our photos are SO important... Estee's yoga retreat was at Mayacamas Ranch in Calistoga, a truly magical place that we lost in the northern California fires this year.  This photo really captures the healing energy of this site, and for the yogis who had the pleasure of practicing there, we will cherish it forever.  

It was also my pleasure to capture the opening of Flourish Integrative Health in Santa Rosa.  These three women worked together to bring a whole wellness center to the community, and their sweet location is a huge milestone.  They growing and thriving now, but what a gift to give them images that tell their story right as it evolved!

In order to get these photos to you and telling the story of your business -- there are a few options.  A full gallery can tell your story with a variety of looks, locations, headshots, etc. and starts at $349. I can do headshots for the entire team with some group shots or close ups for the type of work you do-- I can even bring my amazing hair and makeup artist along, and we can create a really fun environment for you.  Another option for our female business owners is to come to one of our Headshot Happy Hours and choose a package with a few outfit changes and get your hair and makeup!  

There are lots of ways to tell your business story, let's work together to make it happen!

Morgan's Monday Moments: Holiday Photos are Amazing https://www.morganshidler.com/blog/2017/11/morgans-monday-moments-holiday-photos-are-amazing Confession: I am the LAST person to plan ahead for things like family photos and I blame my parents.  We never sent a card this time of year so it was never on my radar.  BUT, the cool thing is -- I also didn't have any experiences of this feeling obligatory or weird or contrived as a kid and I absolutely LOVE meeting families this time of year and creating magic together!

I always feel so honored to be invited into the world of families, it's amazing what happens when the camera comes out.  Holidays are fun because the season is changing, the sweaters come out, and the excitement is building for the winter ahead.  This year I got to work with a few different families and here's a sampling of what we created together. 

Scheduling time while relatives are visiting is a great way to get multiple generations, all the cousins playing together, and your moment in time of celebration!  From backyards to beautiful landmarks, it's easy to make magic with your cutie family when everyone is altogether and there are no rules about it.

If you want to get something on the books before the year is out -- hit me up here and let's see what we can do!  http://www.morganshidler.com/contact-me

Morgan's Monday Moments - Dia de los Muertos https://www.morganshidler.com/blog/2017/11/morgans-monday-moments---dia-de-los-muertos Dia de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead is a Mexican holiday and 3-day celebration to honor the spiritual journey of the dead.  This year I was able to celebrate in Puerto Vallarta and was completely blown away at how joyful it was.  

The holiday is broken up into three days: All Saints Eve on Oct. 31st, All Saints Day on Nov. 1st, and All Souls Day on Nov. 2nd.  It was fascinating to witness the festivities each day, particularly because celebrating death doesn’t exactly sound fun and watching it felt like some altered reality.  In the US we have Halloween which is the closest thing to our tradition, but it is nothing like this.  Halloween is about being someone you aren’t; we are not celebrating those who have gone.  It was evident that there were elements of mixing Halloween and Dia de los Muertos amongst Mexican costumes, but for the most part it was a wholesome family event full of laughter and joy channeled at lost loved ones.  It was impossible not to smile, dance, cheers and share in the genuine happiness of the thousands of people in the streets, in the cemetery, in the parade and everywhere else across the city.  

 

It was particularly powerful in the cemetery, not exactly a place where I’ve ever convened with strangers before.  When we arrived there were street vendors outside the gates ready for the visitors.  Families were set up outside the various tombs with food, music, flowers; and children were running around playing everywhere.  Some folks could be seen in mourning, but mostly people were hanging out with their lost loved ones as if they were still there; it was truly moving.  

Pretty soon after walking around we heard the music kick up a notch and lots of rumbling of motorcycles.  The main parade that concludes the holiday was beginning outside and we were in perfect position to see things get going.  Each group seemed to mix traditional Mexican heritage with facepaint and still have a modern take on the tradition.  Folks of all ages were in the parade and they danced through the streets from the cemetery, down the Malecon overlooking the ocean, to the main town center where the gorgeous oferendas were candlelit at sunset greeted by one massive party.  

It was sobering to walk around and see the oferendas decorated with the details of what the deceased loved -- anything from food and drink to school photos and love letters.  There was something so joyful watching the groups tend to them, making sure every detail was perfect.  What a lovely way to honor those we’ve lost -- creating beautiful public art each year for others to enjoy.  

 

I look forward to heading back to celebrate this tradition in other regions of Mexico over the years, as it is already something I would like to experience again and again.

Morgan's Monday Moments -- I Left My Heart in Mexico https://www.morganshidler.com/blog/2017/11/morgans-monday-moments----i-left-my-heart-in-mexico-not-san-francisco I've probably been to Mexico a dozen times starting when I was a kid.  My Dad and stepmom took us to an all-inclusive at the end of high school and let us run wild.  As the youngest of my four siblings and step-siblings at 16, that ended up being WILD.  That trip serves as a great host of embarrassing stories my family loves to tell about me -- but I always took with me a deeper feeling.  A feeling that fueled many trips in the future -- almost every year.

Something happens in Mexico -- a relaxing, cleansing, opening feeling that can only be experienced there.  Yes, it's the beaches and the weather but it's WAY more than that.  Over the years I've been up and down the Baja Peninsula, the west coast and the east coast.  Last week I spent my birthday in Sayulita and Puerto Vallarta for an easy, quick, rejuvenating 10 days and to celebrate Dia de los Muertos.  I had friends coming in throughout the week and the quality time was priceless.  Playing cards and laying in the sun and chatting until sunrise night after night is something I just don't do in daily life.  The healing, clearing and overall lovely energy that comes from that is what ultimately helps me grow as a person.  It has always been that.

When you couple that quality time with a culture who welcomed us with open arms at every turn, the most delicious food I've ever had for the least amount of money, and beers that cost $1... it's literally the best vacation anyone could ask for.  But the thing is -- it amazes me how many folks I know who resist the amazingness of this country.  It's warmth, culture, ecology, and sheer proximity to us seems like a no brainer.

I'll write more on Mexico in the next couple weeks, but this week, I just wanted to share some initial photos and some initial gratitude I'm feeling about this glorious country.  Somewhere I will visit for the rest of my life, and continue to share my love about along the way.

Morgan's Monday Moments -- Photos Tell Your Business Story Better https://www.morganshidler.com/blog/2017/10/morgans-monday-moments----photos-tell-your-business-story-better There are so many ways our businesses thrive, and I can't stress enough how quality photos make all the difference.  I think some of us, and I don't want to date us by saying we are "older," but we are a bit conditioned to think having a camera in front of us or around us makes us vain.  I know that I definitely suffer from that!  I am the one behind the camera (duh!) so I get to avoid being in front of it!  Whoo hoo!!

It was also my pleasure to capture the opening of Flourish Integrative Health in Santa Rosa.  These three women worked together to bring a whole wellness center to the community, and their sweet location is a huge milestone.  They growing and thriving now, but what a gift to give them images that tell their story right as it evolved!

Morgan's Monday Moments -- An LA Love Letter https://www.morganshidler.com/blog/2017/10/morgans-monday-moments----an-la-love-letter I am back in Southern California for a week and I thought it only fitting to revisit the love letter I wrote to LA over the summer.  I had the opportunity to travel down on a sponsored trip from Megabus, through the travel site I write/take photos for -- ecophiles.com/author/morgan/.

Morgan's Monday Moments -- Caitlin's Army https://www.morganshidler.com/blog/2017/9/morgans-monday-moments----caitlin-s-army A couple months back I had the opportunity to photograph the absolute sweetest family.  The session was gifted to them from a cousin who I played basketball with back in high school, and I was told that they'd been through a lot because their youngest daughter had leukemia.  Having worked with so many kids over the years (probably thousands!) I honestly didn't give it much thought, and was just as excited to work with them as any family.  I just knew I wanted to make sure she had fun no matter what.

From the minute I met them I was in love.  So much love, closeness, and utter support for Caitlin; it was truly beautiful to share in the space with them.  Caitlin came to the door in all the makeup she'd done herself, and right away I knew our shoot would be a blast.  

We started at their house, which is one of my favorite ways to shoot families.  It shows the moment in time, and they are typically the most comfortable.  I loved how we got some shots in front of the playhouse, the backyard, and even by the front door.

Eventually we went out to a local regional park and caught it right at the gorgeous golden hour.  Caitlin had her "Katy Perry" wig, her cape, and we all just laughed (except when Marie, the cutie mama, teased me saying she saw a snake to freak me out!!).  

The photos speak for themselves, but the beauty in this family is bigger than any photo could capture.  They just participated in a walk for Leukemia over the weekend, and it's not too late to donate to their cause: http://fundraising.stjude.org/site/TR?px=4591944&pg=personal&fr_id=73355.  

Caitlin is still in treatment with her last one scheduled for 2/19/19, her hair is on its way, and she had a ball on her walk with her army.  Thanks to this family for letting me be there with them for this moment in time.

Morgan's Monday Moments -- Mama Summah Vibes https://www.morganshidler.com/blog/2017/9/morgans-monday-moments----mama-summah-vibes Summer has officially been over for a few weeks but it hit me this weekend with some leaves on the ground and it felt like fall.  This week I wanted to give some major love to the new mama's I had the pleasure to photograph, one of whom delivered last week, and another whose baby shower I got to attend this weekend.

Having not gone through this miracle myself, I really marvel at the way pregnancy brings out the shine in a woman's soul.  There's a calmness and glow and I think having photos to show its magic is so powerful!  

 

For Jasmine and her family, we had a ball shooting a little in their condo, then roaming around Polk Street a bit then landing at a hidden little walkway close to North Beach.  They are the epitome of a San Francisco family, one that I've been so close to for years and it's always amazing to spend time and laugh and reminisce.  My favorite way to shoot is to roam around together -- sometimes it takes a little while to get warmed up in front of the camera and to feel where you feel your most "you."  Inevitably you find your spot and it's usually never where you would've thought when you started out, like this gorgeous brick wall that complimented their blue outfits so perfectly!

With Samantha she came prepared with 3 outfits and we had the expansive Berkeley Rose Garden to explore, lots of foliages and angles to explore.  Each outfit brought out a different side of the pregnant version of herself, and it was so fun to play with that throughout the shoot.  Her and Rich were so excited to welcome their first one in, they could barely take their eyes off of each other.  

I think this moment for families is so magical, and sometimes the hustle and bustle of these months fly by.  Taking a few hours to be together, honor the transformation that is happening every second, and create tangible memories that last forever is so powerful.  Just learn from Jasmine & Sam!! :)

Morgan's Monday Moments -- Headshot Happy Hour Sept. 14th 2017 https://www.morganshidler.com/blog/2017/9/morgans-monday-moments----headshot-happy-hour-sept-14th-2017 This week I'll be sharing about my favorite day of the month -- Headshot Happy Hour!  Now every 2nd Thursday, this event is really beautiful for lots of reasons-- mainly because it's a place for women to take time for themselves, bond with each other, and come away with beautiful photos to use in all sorts of ways.  

The fact is, we live in a visual era.  Everything we do is online on websites and in profiles in so many different capacities; that getting nice photos is a real thing that needs to happen for everyone (not just actors/models/CEO's/etc.).  Having your photos up is unavoidable, and usually we're stuck with what someone else took of us, a selfie, or a headshot our job made us take one day when we showed up on a random Wednesday.  Ugh.

 

Our monthly Headshot Happy Hour is for women because it's easier to talk through your needs when there are other women in the same position there as well.  You understand that if you're a new mom and look way different than you did 2 years ago, or if you're recently single and want your profile to stand out, or if you need a really powerful headshot on your company's website -- that we all share some of the same insecurities about our hair, makeup, clothing; and usually don't want to look too "done up" but still want to look GOOD.  

 

My favorite moments come usually after we take the first few shots together.  I heard a photographer say recently that what they love about capturing women is not exactly giving them a "memory," but it's giving women a glimpse into the beauty they never even knew they had.  It happens with every single woman, every single month and it's the reason we've been doing this for a year, shooting over 40 women now and no two photos ever look the same.  Even with the same backgrounds (and we have plenty), I'm always blown away at how each woman brings her special WOW to every event.

 

This doesn't even get into how the wine, the snacks and tarot cards (yes, those tarot cards) set the tone.  This Happy Hour really is happy, and gets to a deeper place about why beautiful photos tell our story the way we want it to.  I always feel so honored to work with, get to know, and learn from the beautiful women who join us -- can't wait to see how our future events unfold.

Introducing Morgan's Monday Moments: Erik + Jillie Wedding https://www.morganshidler.com/blog/2017/9/introducing-morgans-monday-moments-erik-jillie-wedding Welcome to Morgan’s Monday Moments!

 

Hey I’m Morgan!  I’m SO excited to launch my new way to keep in touch with what’s happening in my photography world!  As many of you know, the type of photography I do varies quite a bit, as it is really driven by the moment in time and the amazing client(s) I’m working with.  My work = my art, and the way it comes out of the camera is often just as much of a mystery to me as it is to you!  I will never know how it will look until the moment comes, the light shines, the energy flows.

 

So in order to tell my story to you, I’ll be blogging every Monday to tell you about the moments that have been captured recently, why they were so special, and stories about how they happened!

 

This week’s edition is dedicated to Erik & Jillie.  It’s pretty rare that I photograph a wedding, but it is one of my favorite things to do -- the emotions are so surfaced, the love overtakes the energy of everything, and the setting is always gorgeous.  

Sweet ceremony at Jefferson Street Mansion in Benecia, Ca  

 

Erik & Jillie are the cutest couple.  They live in LA so I actually didn’t meet them face to face until the day of, which was fine because we have so many mutual friends and had lots of phone calls and I knew we’d be a great fit.  

 

Erik grew up in Oakland with a bunch of friends of mine, and there’s something about being born and raised here -- your community is ride or die and probably the funnest group of people you’ve ever met.  Erik’s only concern with me was that I’d have more fun with them and lose sight of the photos, which I acknowledged would be tempting but reassured him I’m a pro! :)

 

As far as weddings go this day was completely seamless.  Everyone was relaxed, happy, teary and joyful.  Jillie was absolutely stunning… kind of took my breath away!  Completely classic beauty, and Erik’s pride and emotion couldn’t be contained.  

 

The ceremony was perfectly personal, spiritual, and lovely.  Everyone stunned in the bridal parties and the succulent florals were to die for.  

The reception was one big party, complete with photo booth, an open bar, and fireball shots! Erik & Jillie’s community really showed up for them, full of love and support and the party felt like a dressed up, elegant house party.

There’s something so special about the easiest of wedding days -- I think it shows how easy going, in love, and ready for anything the couple really is.  Erik and Jillie took off for weeks in Europe along the Italian coast to celebrate each other a week after all was said and done, and I couldn’t have been happier for them.  What an honor to work with two amazing people whose love brought so many amazing people together, and will continue to do so over the years.  Sending all my love to you!

Photo of the Day - Day 120 https://www.morganshidler.com/blog/2016/7/photo-of-the-day---day-120 It's hard to find words to express how it feels to wake up to news of yet another unarmed black man being killed on camera by the police.  My thoughts and visceral reaction is rooted with the kids, and what it must be like to be raised in a world where this happens all over the country on an all too regular basis.  My heart sinks for the family, and the powerlessness they must feel; and then to my friends and family of color whose reality in daily life is unjustifiably more dangerous than mine.  The only comfort to be taken is that the movement is unifying and building; the voices are getting louder and less afraid, and hopefully our kids will know a different reality when they grow up.  Hopefully. #AltonSterling #blacklivesmatter

When I took this photo in 2012 at a work event I was still living in San Francisco.  The view, the sunset, and the vibe captivated me even though I was supposed to be focused on the work at hand.  Little did I know that 2 years down the road I would be living in this neighborhood, enjoying this view almost daily as I can see it from my apartment window.  Funny how things work out.

Photo of the Day - Day 109 https://www.morganshidler.com/blog/2016/6/photo-of-the-day---day-109 There are very few photos that captivate a moment and my personal artistic perspective the way this one does.  These two lovebirds embody partnership and passion and San Francisco and family unlike any couple I've ever known.  They asked me to photograph this day far before I'd ever considered myself a "photographer," far before I thought I deserved such an honor.  I've been talking about this photo (and its series) a lot in the last few days, and I wanted to re-share it with the world.  Enjoy.

He spoke with Jenny and I for about 15 minutes about how nice the owners are to make this station special, how he tends to the animals, and explained what each animal was. Then he walked away and the back of his shirt said "I love my job", and we melted.

Today is 100 days of "Photo of the Day" for "Morgan Shidler Photography."  100 days of making sure to put my photos first above any other priorities that might arise.  100 days of thinking creatively, of gaining insight into my own process, of learning about the infinite amount of photos that can come even if the amount in the past are limited.  It's been a joy, and I look forward to 100 more days, and 100 after that.  If you are reading, I hope you've enjoyed it.

Photo of the Day - Day 92 https://www.morganshidler.com/blog/2016/6/photo-of-the-day---day-92 Today was absolutely amazing.  There is no other way to describe.  I began the morning with an inspiring meeting with colleagues in the After School world of Oakland, planning for the future of our field in a collaborative space.  I was encouraged and connected to a group of adults who care not only about our youth, but about being powerful members of Oakland and growing its workforce from within.  It was beautiful.

In the afternoon I set up to sell at Oakland's Art Murmur.  It's a monthly event for local artists of all kinds to sell to a crowd of thousands who support.  Music blares, food trucks give all the smells, and emerging artists like me have a chance to shine their light.  I had so much support -- from the printing (thanks Joel!), to the construction of my display (thanks Remy!), to the help loading and unloading (thanks Ryan!), to the great company throughout the event (thanks Conrad, Peter, Cory, Shayna, Loren, Erin, and Remy again!).

And so, when I come home to a messy apartment with all the supplies and remnants of a crazed experiment to sell at a festival for the first time, all I can feel is full with gratitude.  This adventure is evolving and teaching me so much, I can't wait to see what's next.  Thanks for joining me along the way :).

Photo of the Day - Day 75 https://www.morganshidler.com/blog/2016/5/photo-of-the-day---day-75 Yolanda was someone who touched my life in ways that are hard to describe.  I met her when I was a young woman who just arrived in San Francisco, and she completely took me under her wing.  She showed me the ropes, listened to me cry over boys and fears of growing up; and was also a major sounding board for me while my mom was sick and eventually passed.  We took one epic trip together, a big group adventure to a friends' wedding in Brazil, and I will never forget it.  We visited a few cities and tagged along with our friend's family, and her ability to learn Portuguese as we went and make friends with locals was unlike anything I'd seen. 

I'll never forget this moment in Salvador.  We had just settled into our hotel which was less than optimal and our group was a little less than enthusiastic about it while shuffling about and getting ready for the evening.  It was a little hectic getting used to a city environment because we'd been tucked away for about a week prior.  And I stepped out of my room and saw Yolanda here, totally at peace and in the moment of being where we were: one of the most magical cities I've ever visited (or probably ever will visit).  She knew it before any of us knew it, and was completely able to take it in.  This is who she was, and perhaps it was something she struggled with too, but she was able to be so present wherever she was.

I'm so grateful for this photo taken with film, but more importantly to have had this moment with her.  What a teacher she was.

Bay to Breakers is a San Francisco tradition over 100 years old.  It has its own meaning for anyone who has lived here, and it's pretty rare to meet someone without a seriously funny story attached to its honor.  It's a great day for photos as the costumes and debauchery make for very uninhibited expressions, and I'm grateful for my archives of photos on this day over the years.

Photo of the Day - Day 69: Happy Mother's Day https://www.morganshidler.com/blog/2016/5/photo-of-the-day---day-69-happy-mothers-day Yesterday was a Mother's Day, always the first Sunday in May, and always a tough day for me.  It's hard to figure out ways to celebrate, when my own mama has been gone for 10 years.  I usually make an effort to combine exercise and nature, and if the planets are aligned -- I'll get out to where my sister and I scattered her ashes back in 2006: Point Reyes National Seashore.  

Yesterday I was lucky, and got to hike out with one of my dearest friends and a cute little doggy I was watching.  On a perfectly cloudy but not too chilly day; we hiked the 2 miles in, took in the smells and pure magic that this shoreline offers.  I told my friend the story of when we scattered her ashes 10 years ago, a dolphin was bobbing and waving at us about 10 feet out as we rinsed our hands in the ocean afterward. 

About an hour after telling him I couldn't believe it but I spotted a whale tail breach just before we left.  Anyone who grew up in Northern California knows how rare those moments are.

Those kinds of moments are not lost on me, and I am forever grateful.  It was a good Mother's Day, that concluded with a comforting conversation with my stepmother, who has been in my life since I was 12 years old.  I am incredibly lucky, and I cherish the ability to capture images that do these moments justice.

Opening https://www.morganshidler.com/blog/2016/5/photo-of-the-day---day-67-recap-of-independent-brewing-co-opening Last night was a great opening at Independent Brewing Company!  So many people came out to support my prints of the street art that makes our "Town" so vibrant.  While the night totally flew by, I was able to take a few moments to pause and appreciate the view of the room more than once.  It was truly beautiful: friends with newborns, friends with babies in their bellies, babies and kiddos running around, family who surprised me from ALASKA, friends from elementary school, old bosses, colleagues, friends I haven't seen in years, friends and friends and friends who are family above all else.  As someone who comes from a small family that mostly lives plane rides away, this kind of support is nothing short of emotional, and grateful doesn't even begin to describe my feeling right now. 

The evening was topped off when one of the amazing street artists, Math Oner, came by to see his prints.  He was gracious and happy to see his work on display along with some of his friends'.  It was my pleasure to gift him with a stack of prints to have or share with them. 

Oakland is a truly beautiful, communal, and magical place.  Let's work together always to keep it that way :).

Photo of the Day - Day 56 https://www.morganshidler.com/blog/2016/4/photo-of-the-day---day-56 Purple has always been my favorite color (just check my purplsktle screen name on AOL back in the day!).  But in the last few days the color purple has taken new meaning across the lives of so many people in my life and across the world; I thought I'd spend the week featuring images with this color front and center one way or another.  I've truly enjoyed learning so much about Prince these last few days as so many people have great stories and reasons to honor such an important artist in our time, so here's my daily dose of purple to contribute in my small way :).  I started with this picture taken at the end of our road trip last summer, at a lavender farm off the side of the road that we almost skipped on our way to Seattle.  A memory of lost loved one of mine called us to turn around and stop, and we were here when we got some very upsetting news that ended our trip abruptly.  I'll never forget that day, and the beauty and scents that accompanied the moment.

Gregory James & Alma Fria Wines Photo Shoot https://www.morganshidler.com/blog/2016/4/gregory-james-alma-fria-wines-photo-shoot A couple weeks ago I had the pleasure of shooting Gregory Adams of Gregory James Wines as well as Jan Holtermann of Alma Fria Wines.  We met at Adams' property in Sebastapol on a quintessentially Sonoma County foggy morning, which had the perfect setting of vineyards on a hillside with a beautifully manicured edible garden off to the side.

Both vintners were referred to me by Jenny Harrow who is helping these boutique wineries with their growth over time.  The four of us had a ball at the vineyard shooting head shots and group shots, before heading to their wine cellar in Santa Rosa shooting more where the magic happens.  Adams and Holtermann are truly passionate about the process of wine making, and I felt lucky to learn all about it as I snapped away. 

Overall it was a great day, and ended with a great shot of both Adams and Holtermann with their awesome Mini Coopers!  Can't wait to see how their brands grow, and enjoy their yummy wines in the meantime.

Mills College Conference on Building Vibrant Communities! https://www.morganshidler.com/blog/2016/3/mills-college-conference-on-building-vibrant-communities I had the pleasure of photographing a conference at Mills College on Friday, March 11th.  This one-day meeting of the minds brought together politicians, community leaders, professors, non-profit leaders, and activists to share best practices on how to build  "Vibrant Communities through Community Capital."  With topics on gentrification, criminal justice, and connection -- each speaker and panel brought unique perspective and solutions to every workshop.  Participants were able to ask questions, participant and give feedback on a day filled with optimism for how to keep communities thriving from within. 

Thank you to Mills for the opportunity to take photos and learn throughout the day!

Welcome to Photo of the Day! https://www.morganshidler.com/blog/2016/3/welcome-to-photo-of-the-day Back in 2011, I wanted to create some structure around my creative process and started to post a photo on Facebook everyday.  I called it "Photo of the Day" and it lasted for a couple years.  This was before #photooftheday or hashtag anything for that matter.  Now that Morgan Shidler Photography is its own entity and we are moving full steam ahead into the world, I thought it time to bring Photo of the Day back!  I've missed it the last few years, and I'm excited to share it with you!

So, for as long as I can -- I will be posting one photo that I love each day.  That is the only criteria.  It may be a landscape, it may be a portrait, something I'm working on, or a silly candid photo of a loved one because it's a special day for us.  You can view the whole gallery under "Photo of the Day" in my Portfolio section.

I thought for Day 1, I'd take it back to my very first Photo of the Day way back when.  Originally posted on on February 7, 2011. 

Day 1:  "Bliss"

10 Reasons Why Morgan Shidler is Different, Yeah, She's Different! https://www.morganshidler.com/blog/2016/2/10-reasons-why-morgan-shidler-photography-is-different-yeah-shes-different Yep, Here's 10 Reasons why "I'm Different, Yeah, I'm Different"!

1. I quoted 2 Chainz in my first photography blog post!?!

2. My photo packages are hella accessible!!! Seriously, get some good photos into your life, because we only live once, you know? Check em out here: http://www.morganshidler.com/pricing

3. I'm a Scorpio!  I mean, what better traits to have an in a photographer!?

4. I have a potty mouth! If we are working together we'll be joking around and you'll probably laugh a lot. 

5. I have a ton of experience with kids!  I actually have a Masters Degree in Education and 10 years of working in schools -- I connect well with them, which makes for great pics showing their true spirit.  SIDENOTE: #4 doesn't apply here, I can turn it off for younger audiences! ;)

6. I offer DONATION-BASED shoots EVERY month.  That's right... whatever you can offer (or not offer.. free is ok too) I'll work with.  This is my (NAMASTE) way of hopefully getting some great photos to those who might not consider it otherwise. 

 

7. I have 2 dope spots to meet and talk business in Oakland and SF (pictured).  Both spaces are super easy to get to wherever you are in the bay.

8. I'm a hustler.  I will do what it takes to make every client happy -- which means great photos AND a great experience for you.  No matter what.

9. My website is awesome and easy.  I take photos, you login to your personal gallery to see, download, AND buy them if you want.  DONE.

10. I am not in it for the glory! All that matters is that YOU enjoy the photos, and it's really that simple.
