"It was very apparent that you poured your heart and soul into this workshop. Every tiny detail was thought out and made me feel valued. I loved your willingness to be an open book and that you are committing to supporting us throughout our photography journeys. It makes me feel not so alone and more confident that I can do this! At the risk of sounding corny, I think the best part of the workshop was you. Just like we as photographers bring something special and unique to our businesses, you are doing the same with your workshop, and I am certain that many photographers will be blessed, encouraged and experience growth because of your influence on them."

little stories from past workshop attendees

"Everything! The venue, the flow of the day, the content provided touched on important areas and the styled shoots were just incredible to watch you in action as we learned for our own shoots. The amount of attendees was perfect and such a great group of women! You took your time to answer our questions and I know we invested in the workshop, but you really invested in us as photographers. I left with many tangible takeaways and things I could immediately put into practice, as well as being inspired with a new found confidence. The little details didn't go unnoticed, you put your heart into this workshop and it truly shows, thank you!"

- Lexi

Where is the Workshop going to be held?

Is this an overnight workshop? 

Yes!! Expect to hang with a fun group of driven photographers for 3 nights and dive into a ton of content! There is so much to share that my past workshop attendees all gave feedback to make this a 2-3 day thing! Soooo, I took the feedback and ran! I am envisioning tons of learning from all the things I have planned for you and from each other, opportunities to shoot a variety of content - indoor and outdoor, editing time, and just overall GROWTH!

Will we be sharing rooms? 

There are different options but everyone will be sharing a room either with one other person or 3 other. The house has three room options. Room #1 has 2 bunk beds (sleeps 4), Room #2 has a king bed with two trundles (sleeps 4, 2 share king bed and 2 have separate twin beds), and Room #3 has one king bed (sleeps 2). There will be no guarantees on room/roommate assignments, but we will do our best to honor preferences.
