This past Saturday I held my first solo workshop ever. I was so nervous to meet all of the students. I could not believe the workshop sold out in just two days. The experience was *so* heart warming and inspiring. I loved being able to help other photographers put the finishing touches on their business, to possibly inspire or offer a new idea or approach to a situation or problem. It was a cozy Saturday where we got to chill around the fire place and just chat shop. Naturally it was -40 out the day of the workshop, but everyone still came bright eyed and ready to roll. A big thank you to Nicky and Scott our beautiful models who braved the insanely cold temperatures to model for students. We were able to put some posing techniques to work. Marketing, business, styled shoots and posing were all topics covered. A big thank you to everyone who made this such a smashing success! I can’t wait for the next one! Details to follow.

From the students:
“I would like to thank you again for offering this incredible workshop. You were extremely kind and personable. I enjoyed the small group size for the workshop because it gave us all the opportunity to ask questions and receive individual feedback. No question was off limits, and you were extremely open about your own business and what has worked for you. I loved the stylized shoot and the attention to detail that went into organizing it. I left the workshop feeling truly inspired. One of the things that I took away from the workshop was the importance of branding and showing consistency in my brand. ” – First Glance Studios
“Thank you for hosting such a great workshop! The information you provided us was invaluable. I found the business and pricing discussion to be most valuable to me. When I take on my first wedding, I will feel more confident and prepared than if I was to figure the business out on my own! Ever since I started my photography journey, you have been a huge role model to me. You are one talented, driven, and fearless woman! Thank you for sharing your knowledge and expertise with us.” – Iveigh Images
” I felt it was very personal and I really appreciated how you took the time to answer individual questions. I also found your tips on posing to maximize your time super helpful. The best part was definitely the shoot at the end- it was great to see you in action and learn from you first hand.. All around it was such an awesome day- I even texted my husband in the middle of it and said that I was learning SO much and it was totally worth it” – Fire Light Images
