photography workshop // destin

As a purely self (YouTube) taught photographer, I am absolutely ecstatic to share that I attended my first photography workshop last week with none other than Bobbi & Doug from Twig & Olive! I knew it was time to really invest in myself, and I wanted to get the most bang for my buck. Just having the two of them on my side of the country was reason enough to take the leap and fly down to Destin. Worth every penny let me tell you. I returned with a ton of confidence, loads of business expertise, and honestly even some basic knowledge that made me feel super clueless when I learned it for the first time. But hey, now I know. I am so ready to better by business in 2019, use my time more wisely, and bring to you an experience you will remember forever. Here is a look at one of the model families at the workshop. Due to rain, us workshop goers didn’t get a ton of time behind the camera, but I was able to take 5 minutes with this gorgeous family right after sunset (which is called Blue Light, did you know that? Yeah, me either).

Christmas Minis are coming up next weekend, and I can’t wait to take what I’ve learned and make them the best yet! Here’s to year 4. Thank you for being here!

mollie // senior

Senior photos sure have changed since I was 18. I WISH I was being fierce in a field somewhere instead of sitting in a mildly awkward man’s studio posing by fake water and fake grass. The times have changed, and the photos definitely are prettier, but I wouldn’t trade it. At least there was no Facebook back then 😉

indian summer.

I can’t believe I never blogged my favorite session from last season. Summer just kept going on and on and it was so gorgeous in October last year, not to mention this beautiful family was so amazing. So easy going. We had a blast during their session and I think that’s pretty obvious in these photos.

senior season.

Senior season is the best season in this photographer’s opinion. I LOVE doing senior sessions so much. As a former high school English teacher, I just love the age. The excitement of the final year of school. Working with an almost grown up who actually wants to have their photo taken helps sweeten the deal. Alaina opted for my “back roads” session which is a loop that I do with the seniors who request it. It’s my favorite because no matter how many seniors I take on the loop, we always manage to make the photos still look unique and special.
