Mom of the Week

Posted by Tara Dunsmore in Blog, meet a mom, Mom of the Week on Thu, May 24, 2012

Here at Tots2Tweens we are always on the lookout for moms who can contribute to our goal of bringing you the most up-to-date, relevant information. My goal is to do the research for you so you don’t have to! This week I found Regina Benbow, a local mom and fledging photographer.

Name: Regina Benbow

Home: Born in Moline, IL. now living in Hagerstown, MD.

Occupation: Stay at home mom and Photographer

Facebook Page:

Meet the Family: I’m married to the love of my life, Greg Benbow and we have 3 wonderful kids. Luna who is 11 1/2, Gwen who is 4 1/2 and Dylan who just turned 2.

Must sees in Hagerstown: City Park is a must, it’s so beautiful. Hagerstown Roundhouse Museum if you have a little one that loves trains like my son (he goes nuts when he hears or sees trains ) than you definitely need to go there.

Most controversial thing about her:  Have you seen the latest TIME Magazine cover about breastfeeding? Well I’m proud to say that I breastfeed all of my children past the age of 1. I completely respect the right of every mother to do what is best for her family but for us, extended breastfeeding has been the best choice.

Passions and Interests: Over the last few years, photography has become my passion. There is something about photography that relaxes and excites me. There is a certain thrill that I get when taking pictures that cannot be expressed with words. I just finished up taking classes at HCC for photography and learned so much. I’m hoping to take more soon to keep expanding. I’m building my portfolio and still learning as I go.

What types of photography she does: My style is on site with natural light lifestyle photography. I can do Weddings, Engagements, Children, Family, Pets, Newborn, and Maternity.

What have you learned as a photographer that you can share with the every day mom? Getting moments of ‘firsts’ are sometimes better then a posed portrait. First moments with mom, first bath, first time riding a bike, first time meeting friends and family, and going to school.
