MOPS serves up a tea time tradition

There’s nothing like tradition.  And the West Side Mops have created just that with their annual MOPS Tea fundraiser.  Over 100 friends, family, mothers and daughters sat down to an afternoon filled with good company, good conversation, delicious treats and of course tea.  The beautiful tabletops expressed the artistic side of the guests. Once again, I was on hand to capture their ‘traditional’ event photos. Sales were donated back to the West Side Mops.  Click here to view all the photos from the tea.

What happens at Spa Day…

stays at Spa Day!

I think this image says it all. What better way to relax than reading a book on your iPhone, munching on a lovely snack and soaking those tired feet!

The West Side MOPS held their annual “Spa Day” for all those deserving moms of West Seattle.  Moms were able to chat among friends, paint their nails, enjoy a foot soak, and get some undivided attention from Dr. Chris Hill and Sherry Cejna, Olive Branch Body Care and Arbonne.  A lovely brunch was enjoyed by all. Cabi Fashions was on hand to inspire the fashion minded mom as well. UrbanSitter and Stroller Strides provided information on unique childcare services.  And I took them all the way to Vegas!

Moms transported to sunny beaches for MOPS Spa Day!

It was another deserving ‘spa day’ for the moms of West Side MOPS. Local businesses provided mini make-overs, hair styling, skin care, and massages!  Jewelry and fashion consultants were also on hand.  There were plenty of door prizes and lots of yummy goodies from local vendors for the moms to enjoy.  And through the magic of greenscreen technology Gail Ann transported them to lands far away!  View all the candids and greenscreen images by clicking here!


West Side Women’s Spring Tea

Remember the days…when little girls couldn’t wait to get into grandma’s closet and try on all those jewels and hats? Well, girls of every age got to do that at the West Side Women’s Spring Tea! Table were decorated with antique and modern day teapots. Cranberry scones, cucumber-mint tea sandwiches, orange-cardamom cupcakes were served up with finesse – YUM! And I donated my time and proceeds to West Side MOPS for the fun photo opportunity.  You can view all the images by clicking here:

West Side Mops Spa Day a Success!

This was my first year participating in the West Side Mops annual Spa Day. The moms of West Seattle stopped by for 2 hours of pampering including hair, make up, massage, crafts, and wonderful mom portraits by “moi” gail ann!  We munched on bagels and cupcakes and enjoyed a chocolate fountain. Each  mom got a gift bag with goodies and many door prizes were given away.  I’m sure there was a lot of ‘action’ when the ladies got home to their husbands looking like dynamite!  Take a peek here at the day’s fun…Hope to see you all next year!
