Your Family in Pictures RELEASES Today!  WOO HOO!!!

Your Family in Pictures, Me Ra Koh, Best Selling Series

Five years ago, I sat with my long-time business mentor Jeff Jochum.  I told him about my photo recipe idea, and how I wanted to write an instructional photography book for moms that mirrored the successful layouts of cookbooks.  I LOVE it when a cookbook gives me the recipe, step-by-step, while showing me a beautiful photo of what I’m going to create.  Jeff, being who he always is, saw more in me than just one book.  He saw a series of photo recipe books.  The rest is history!

For the last five days, you can find ALL THREE BOOKS on AMAZON’S BESTSELLER’S TOP 10 LIST!

#3 Your Baby in Pictures

#7 Your Child in Pictures

and now…

#4 Your Family in Pictures!!!!

A book’s success, especially a series, is in large part because of the community that helps inspire it.  Not only do my clients, CONFIDENCE Teachers and workshop attendees, family and all of you play a big role in each of my books–but I have to give special credit to Jeff Jochum for the idea of a series that we hoped would one day be bestselling!  (Jeff, we need to celebrate!)

What you will find in Your Family in Pictures: The Parents’ Guide to Photographing Holidays, Family Portraits and Everyday Life;

MORE PHOTOS to inspire you than we printed in the first two books!
