The Artsy Mama event went down on the 26th, February, 2014 at the Michael Joseph Center. The event took place from 11:00 AM till around 3:00 PM.
This was an event by women but not for women alone. Very few men came along (including me), but the place was warm.
The atmosphere was serene and feminine.
A lot of wares were on display as stay-at-home moms showcased what they do right from home and make a living out of it.
We also had a line of 4 panelists who have gone far and beyond and actually put their skills and passions to use. Some of these women have set up businesses and captured the Kenyan corporate market and made a name for themselves.
And here are the panelists:
Corrine the Hair Stylist
Lintons Beauty World
Riri of Riri Jewellery
I am definitely looking forward to the next Artsy Mama event.
I was on location for this event to take a few snapshots and show you what exactly went down. The show was packed and the residents came out in numbers to be entertained. Here are a few pictures and clips I shot during my shot stint on location.
We went crazy with these shots. These guys really do know how to pose don’t they?

I recently volunteered for a demolition project at Pangani and the experience was energetic and quite frankly fun. Here is what I got. Enjoy!

I recently shot these at the National Museums of Kenya garden. I loved the detailed natural surroundings and I could not resist using my 35 mm lens to bring them up close and show you nature in its natural settings.
