Hey do you remember that one time when we did THIS?! Thanks to AR Workshop Alexandria for hosting us all those years ago. Who is interested in another Mom's Night Out?
Renée C. Gage Photography celebrated a milestone 20th anniversary surrounded by family and friends at Landini Brother's Inc.

empowerHER 𝘦𝘷𝘦𝘳𝘺𝘸𝘩𝘦𝘳𝘦 Washington, D.C.💙 empowerHER's 1st ever EVENT for GIRLS in the D.C. area was a day of creating adorable chunky knit pumpkins. . . but more importantly, a day of community, connection, love + support!
.

We are forever grateful to event Co-hosts Dani Hawkins + Samantha Loutzenhiser and their wonderful committee for helping to bring our programs to the D.C. area! As Sam says, "It's all about building community. At the end of the day, it doesn't even matter what activity we're doing, as long as girls can meet + connect with other girls and women who understand them."

At empowerHER, we meet families where they are. While empowerHER continues to grow, with events taking place across the country, we still maintain the close-knit feel that characterized our first Mother's Day Retreat in 2013. Thank you to all for helping us build community and bring love + support to girls everywhere✨

A special THANK YOU to Welcome Home Realty Group LLC for helping to make it all possible. Thank you to AR Workshop Alexandria for opening your studio to us, sweetgreen for donating the yummy lunch, and Sprinkle Seesters + Dani for the adorable cookies!
I recently attended a Visit Alexandria customer event here and it was FABULOUS. The projects were so perfect and the assistance the staff showed towards eveyone was STELLER. Loved the cute giftshop where you can put together your projects with little added items to complete every gift. GREAT place for networking with peers, customers, etc. I WILL be back.

Thank you ladies.

Had a great time making these pillows as part of our birthday weekend.
AR Workshop Alexandria recently hosted an event to assist small business owners to create custom, branded signage. The evening also provided ample opportunities to forge new connections through crafting and conversation.
