I am beyond thrilled to be blogging about a workshop I attended last week in Chicago given by the amazingly talented and successful Audrey Woulard. It was a very small and intimate workshop (the best kind) with a great group of women from all over North America. They were the type of women that I just clicked with instantly, and I know I’ve made lasting friendships!
The workshop far exceeded my expectations – we were able to watch Audrey photograph several children, see her post processing and workflow steps, discuss marketing, branding, pricing, and I even got to sit down with Audrey for a one-on-one mentoring session during the last day of the workshop.
I honestly learned more than I ever thought I would. There’s a reason Audrey is so successful – these things don’t happen by accident. Not only is she a talented photographer, she’s smart and an amazing businesswoman. I am striving to run my business as smart as she’s run hers!
As I mentioned, we had several kids come join us during the workshop and were they ever cute!! Here are some of my shots:
And here is a group shot of us girls at the workshop — somehow I ended up smack dab in the center of the photo! Thanks to Patti Hale for taking the picture for us!
If you’d like to visit the blogs of some of the other girls who attended, and hear their thoughts on the workshop, here are their links:
Many thanks to Audrey for a fantastic workshop!!
This is the beautiful Brooke!! She is the daughter of one of my local Clickin’ Moms friends. She is absolutely stunning, and the spring colors we found at our location made her images even more gorgeous. I can’t get over her beautiful eyes!
This ADORABLE little guy is five-year-old Mack. He’s the son of my friend and fellow photographer Kate. Can you believe those cute little bare feet and the TIE?!? And his little sidekick (the bunny) is named Hippy. The cuteness of Mack and Hippy together at the Duke Gardens in Durham are almost too much to handle!!! Some of these photos might be amongst my very favorite I’ve ever taken! Thanks for being such a great little model, Mack!
Recently I had the pleasure of meeting sweet little Allie, just 10 days new. Oh, how I love newborn sessions, I could do them every day. Congrats to her parents and big brother Caleb, she is gorgeous and such a blessing!
Here is big brother Caleb, counting his sister’s fingers. I just love the look on his face!
A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of meeting Cate and Lucy – baby girl twins. This family is one of a kind – the parents are talented in so many ways and they have FOUR girls! I can’t even imagine how Daddy will sleep at night when they become teenagers!
Here is a peak at some of their photos – enjoy!
