Last week I arrived in Fredericksburg, Virginia where I got to meet the lovely Hope Taylor & made 11 new photographer friends who were all so sweet. A lot of them had such a southern charm and hospitality about them, I fell in love with them and their accents so fast. I am one of those people who always tries to talk in a southern acc- actually any accent really because I just love them; but didn't actually bring it out during this occasion which was probably good judgment. One time I pretended to be British to an English guy at a bar and when he asked where I was from, I said "Liverpool" where he then replied "Oh ya? Then why do you have a London accent?" I'm pretty sure he stopped talking to me after that.
One of my favorite parts about attending workshops is meeting new people who share your same passions and understand all of the struggles and wins when it comes to running a business.
This all day workshop involved so much good food like Chick - fil- a and cupycakes for lunch and the biggest box of pizza I've ever seen for dinner. (It took 2 plates to eat one slice of this pizza!) but it was probably the most delicious slice of pizza I've ever had.
When we weren't eating we were learning and shooting. We went over everything from business to camera settings, posing, lighting and editing! Hope's studio is so stinken cute. She has it decorated so comfy and chic. It's basically any girls dream closet! Just take a look for yourself.
These are some of the pretty girls I got to shoot along side of at the workshop! They're all so adorable and sweet!
