For the Love of Photography Workshop {relaunch}

A couple of weeks ago I announced that I was teaming up with Erin of Captured by Erin Photography for our very first workshop. We are so excited! This workshop is going to be filled with so much good stuff. It was actually a workshop very similar to this one that took both of us to a whole new level in our photography and an understanding of it.

 We had a great response to the launch, but we know there are still some questions out there. Mainly...who exactly is this workshop for and what are we going to learn??

This workshop is for anyone!!! The mom, the dad, the hobbyist, the growing photographer, the dreamer, the student, the parent, the friend. It is for anyone who loves to take pictures and wants to get more out of them.

This is a beginner workshop. We are going to learn how to use your DSLR camera better and what all those buttons and gadgets do. ISO, aperture and shutter speed...lets stop shooting in auto. We will learn lighting, exposure, composition and SO much more. We will also have a live shoot where you will get to use your new skills and knowledge. For those wanting more, stay for our full class and see what we do with our images after the shoot. Get some basic photoshop tips and tricks and ask us anything you want. You ask...we tell!!

We are very excited for this workshop and hope that you can join us. It is going to be filled with so much information and of course lots of fun. Our goal and hope is that you will leave feeling confident and inspired. There is nothing quite like being with a group of people that share the same passion and fuel each others fire!!

life looks good on her

I've known Michelle since high school. And thanks to the wonderful world of modern technology we have been able to keep in touch.  I was able to feel like I was along for the ride when she found out she was expecting and again when she and Joe welcomed little Dillon into this world. 

They came home for a visit and I was so honored that I was one of the stops on the trip. This really is one of the sweetest families to be around. Their love is contagious!

 Michelle was always a beautiful and sweet girl, but she was different now. Joe is such a perfect fit for her. And Dillon was a perfect fit for both of them.

After I got home from our time together I couldn't stop thinking about them. I picked up the phone and sent her a text..."married life and motherhood look great on you!" And it does!!!

Thank you so much for sharing your love and time with me. And for trusting me to capture some precious memories for you!


This next one cracks me up...such a face Dillon.
