Mommy Monday:: Rebecca Nash Photography

Rebecca Nash is the mom behind Rebecca Nash Photography. She started her business on a part time basis in September, 2010. When she moved to London, Ontario last year, she began pursuing it full time after receiving funding through the CYBF (Canadian Youth Business Foundation) in late March 2011.

Her business has multiple facets including wedding photography, portrait photography and fine art photography. “I am also a proud member of the Artisan Group (a celebrity gifting organization) and will have my new line of stationary with Fine Art Images on display in the 2012 MTV Movie Awards Celebrity Gifting Suite and in the Celebrity Swag Bags at the same event,” she said.

Celebrities will be receiving a portrait case trimmed in ribbon from Rebecca Nash Photography this year. Inside a set of 4 4”x5” blank note cards with fine art photos on the cover, corresponding envelopes, a biography card and a gift certificate for a full set of 12 note cards and envelopes of the theme of their choosing. More than any repeat business, Nash hopes to receive photos of celebrities holding her new products to use on her website and in promoting the new line of products.

As part of her fine art photography, she is also collaborating with another local artist on a touring gallery exhibit in honour of the bicentennial of the War of 1812. The exhibit is still in the creation phase but the hope is to have it ready to tour North America in early 2013.

Nash said she finds balance by implementing regular hours for work, family, and me time. “Everyone can understand what's happening and when. We have special nights for the family too, including movie night and board game night every week that we all look forward to.” She said, “It makes it easier for everyone to focus and respect the time frames.”

Like me, she’s also a big fan of to-do lists. Each week, she prioritizes the list into what must be done immediately, what should get done soon and what will get done sometime. “Then, I use the prioritized to-do list to block in tasks that must get done first and then work the way down the list for all the hours you have available for work. Use a timer to keep you on task and within your time frames!”

Nash encourages organization when talking to other mom entrepreneurs and aspiring business owners. For marketing, she utilizes her website, celebrity gifting, social media, bridal shows and local publications most often.

Get Your Products in the Hands of Celebrities!

Have you dreamed of having your products worn by celebrity babies in Hollywood? It doesn’t have to be a dream, Phyllis Pometta of Baby Swags can make it happen. “I started Baby Swags on September 6, 2006 as a way to help other mom entrepreneurs market their products via celebrity placement,” Pometta said.

Baby Swags takes their client’s products and creates gift bags and baskets for celebrity moms, dads and babies. Recently, Baby Swags was included in a celebrity hosted baby shower that was featured in OK! Magazine.  Jennifer Love Hewitt hosted her brother and sister-in-law’s baby shower and Baby Swags provided $1600 worth of gifts on behalf of clients.

Celebrity babies Nahla Aubry (Halle Berry), Violet and Seraphina Affleck, Liam and Stella McDermott, and Vida McConaughey have all been spotted in products from Baby Swags clients. Pometta constantly updates her blog with new gifts and celebrity sightings.

The company also is proud to work with various celebrity supported charities, as well as charities that are close to Pometta’s heart. “I've worked with Eric Estrada's wife and the HollyRod Foundation (among others) to provide them with gift baskets that can be used for silent auctions,” she said.  Their other favorite charities have included The Ronald McDonald House, March of Dimes and ACT! Today.

 According to Pometta, her business has grown by leaps and bounds over the past four years, but she still operates every end of her business on her own.  Since its inception, she has created The Mommy Mentor radio show {check it out, Market Mommy was a guest on August 17!} and Tots To Teens Magazine, an online digital magazine that will debut soon.

Phyllis and her husband Steve have three children, Alyssa 12, Scotty (soon to be 9), and Gianna who just turned 6.  The couple has been together for 21 years, married 15 of those.  Phyllis's personal mission is to help as many women as she can. She loves to see the happiness of success on other peoples faces, or in this case, in their voices or through their emails!
