I posted a while back about my new found passion for photography and wanted to share a few things that have me excited and feeling inspired!
1st... I had the privilege of attending a GoPro workshop with Blue Lily Photography (blog). Oh my, this was an incredible two days of learning. They answered every possible question about photography, my camera and their business that I could ever come up with. I met some amazing new friends and learned so much. If you are into photography then I can't recommend this workshop enough. The best part of the weekend for me was spending time with Wendy and Tyler and learning about/absorbing their work ethic and positive attitude. I can't really put this part into words but Wendy and Tyler are beautiful souls are so inspiring in how they handle their marriage, family, business and life. Anyway, if I am not being clear... I loved every minute of it!
2nd... Clickin' Moms - this is a photography forum absolutely brimming with information from both pro and hobby photographers. You don't have to be a mom to join so don't be intimidated by the name. The also offer classes in both photography and editing (I'm signed up for Lightroom 101 starting in a week) and mini break out sessions which are totally affordable ($25 usually) and brimming with good info.
3rd... Kin Community on YouTube. My incredibly talented and gorgeous friend Liesl turned me on this new channel on YouTube where they are sharing recipes, style tips, and stories. She has been doing recipe videos for them, here is her promo video. I'm so proud of her and am so excited by this community! Stay tuned because in a few months, I will be sharing some more Kin videos of another friend doing style tips. I have the coolest friends, seriously.
4th... BABIES! 2 friends had baby boys this week and I found out about a few other babies coming this summer. Now that my "baby" is almost 2 and a half, having real, yummy newborns around is so sweet and exciting. I'll be back soon to share a newborn shot with you soon.
Well, these are the things filling up my brain these days. Next on the agenda... our annual trip to Cabo, working on a new photo blog and practicing up a storm on my new camera. How is the new year starting out for you?
Here are a few pictures I took at the Blue Lily workshop. They lined up a couple of practice shoots for us. Loved working with this gorgeous couple. Nothing beats young love! (As always, critique or advice welcome!)
