This is a first for us, and so exciting!! We have officially completed our first-ever workshop. My students did a fantastic job and I had a crazy amount of fun teaching them. Can’t wait for the next one in August!!

This time I led the session, but scroll to the end to see some of the student work!!

Meet Gerard and Sydney, our models. Um….wow?! I knew Syd would have something incredible to wear on short notice and she definitely proved me right!

All during the lecture part of the workshop, we sat in a sunroom watching a storm roll in. I talked on, and it poured. I kept going and we nervously laughed as it even hailed a little. We pushed on and ran a little late but when we finished, we were rewarded with the most gorgeous soft summer evening! The sun came out and the humidity was gone. Yay!! Lesson 1: don’t be scared of the weather!

These two made it so lovely for the students to practice posing, shooting, and editing the session. We shared plenty of laughs and they weren’t even phased by having multiple cameras in their faces!

Thanks especially to Sydney & Gerard for their time and patience, as well as the Zuiderveen family for the use of their lovely sun room and property!
