I am still trying to catch up after my fun filled workshop weekend. The girls and I had a full day of shooting after learning the techincal side of things and then on Sunday we did a 4 hour crash course on Photoshop…but after all the tough stuff was over, we enjoyed nice meals together and had wonderful conversations about all we have experienced in our lives. Sometimes I almost forget that these are teaching weekends….I have been so lucky to have had the most amazing women sign up and I always walk away from these workshops feeling as if I just spent a weekend with some of my best friends.
Let me start by introducing you to some truly special women…..
Bickies(that is her incognito, bloggy name), Heather, Diana, Me, Janet, Dita, and Becky.
Make sure you stop by to check out their blogs….you might just get a glimpse of what they shot this weekend:)
With everything going on right now, I have only just begun to edit my photos, and I know that the other girls that attended are still in the weeds like I am…… but I couldn’t wait to share some of the my favorites.
Besides, I don’t have any news to report and I need to do something to keep my mind off waiting for the phone to ring. Still waiting on that travel approval:(
A little behind the scenes shot of the girls in action.
Nick and Alicia were our first models of the day. We shot in the direct sunlight which was a bit of a challenge, but it was a great learning experience as most of us try to avoid it.
As per usual, it was hard not to take a million pictures of Alicia…. she is simply beautiful and the camera loves her.
My stunning BFF Shelly came out for our afternoon session….. We were all going crazy over all of her fabulous jewels that she wears so well.
Shelly’s gorgeous daughter Delaney.
Most of you will recognize this adorable duo…. Sweetie Pie and WonderBoy…… otherwise known as Dita’s Darlings! Wonderboy is as handsome as can be and a fabulous big brother to his sweet little sis.
I know I posted this yesterday, but I had to post it again because I LOVE it so much. She is like a miniature Dita….. she’s got her mother’s beauty and personality:)
A few more familiar faces….
This precious pair just melts my heart!
I had the pleasure of meeting them for the first time last Christmas…… and they won me over in an instant.
They are as cute as can be….so kind and caring…..just like their super special Mom:)
Look at those dimples!
I just want to reach out and squeeze her pretty little face.
WOWZA….that incredible red hair and those beautiful baby blues.
She is one gorgeous little girl.
I liked this one so much, I decided to do it in B&W too:)
This was one of the last photos I took on Saturday. We were packing up and getting ready to head out. I had actually put my camera away, but had to pull it out again to capture this cute moment.
Hope you enjoyed the little workshop preview.
I am sure I will be sneaking some more photos in here and there.
Enjoy the rest of your week~
