At THE MOTHERHOOD we (Philippa and Emidy) empower mothers to embrace their creativity by giving them the knowledge and skills they need to use their DSLR camera. Creating captivating images through strong composition and powerful storytelling.
THE MOTHERHOOD is steeped in a passion for uplifting women, giving you the encouragement and confidence to take amazing photos, in a totally relaxed, stress-free environment.
Philippa James, professional photographer and THE MOTHERHOOD founder inspires mothers to take brilliant photos of their everyday. She has created her own encouraging, dynamic coaching method to make sure everyone is included and gets to learn at their own pace. No-one leaves without their own lightbulb moment.
As a former student of THE MOTHERHOOD, Emidy understands first-hand what it feels like to take part in the workshops and has joined forces with Philippa as a founding member its community. Her experience makes her the perfect person to support and encourage you on your journey, as she has been there herself and has transformed her relationship with photography as a result.
Don’t just take our word for it, THE MOTHERHOOD will change your photography for life. Past students have gone on to have their work included in the National Portrait Gallery Hold Still Gallery and been interviewed by the BBC Breakfast team about our own exhibition, ISOLATION.
