The AWP WORKSHOP 2018

The AWP WORKSHOP 2018

I feel like this post should begin with a drum-roll, so, just do me a favor and do a little drum-roll on your keyboard before you keep reading... (*insert wink emoji here) 

I have already shared a little bit about my heart and planning experience regarding this workshop but now it's time to actually dig deep into the day itself. It's also a chance for me to brag shamelessly on my incredible attendees and vendors who were absolutely amazing.

"The reason they believe that they can find someone cheaper is BECAUSE THEY CAN. Clients CAN find someone at a lesser cost because this is a saturated industry filled with people trying to operate a business with little to no business education what-so-ever. They have no idea that by devaluing themselves and their time, they are also devaluing the entire industry and causing a loss of income for most photographers across the board. 

It was then that I remembered that I too started off this way. Inexperienced and uneducated on all things business, pricing for profitability, as well as lacking the technical skill to charge an amount that I would need to survive off of. " ... read more

Haley + Devon | Formal Wedding Portraits | The Lange Farm Dade City, Florida

When Devon proposed to Haley, they had already been dating for quite a few years and knew that they wanted to do something different from the norm. They decided to book a cruise with some of their closest family and friends and say “I Do” while touring the Caribbean! Because of this, they were limited on their options for photography and decided that they would find a gorgeous venue back home, book a special day to dress back up in their wedding attire, and have their wedding portraits taken separately from their Cruise Wedding...(read more)

I partnered up with some members of the Tampa Tuesday’s Together group a couple of months ago with a vision to put together an incredible romantic European-inspired shoot for when I would be traveling in the area. Our vision was to do something that had a fresh approach to a classic and soft theme...

I absolutely love how things just seem to fall into place-even if it is right at the last minute! 

This weekend I had gone to the floral warehouse to get a few things for some personal needs. However I ended up with some extra florals that weren't going to be used so I threw them into a bouquet and blasted facebook for someone to wear a pretty dress and model them. I had a few inquiries and I wish I could have used everyone-but- one in particular stood out.

If you haven't noticed by now, Emili is my entourage. My posse some might say. 

She basically is my adventurous soul that is willing to go and do anything anytime and does it with the best heart. If I need someone to model for an editorial shoot, she does it. If I want someone to do a fashion shoot in an urban setting, she does it.

As I sit here trying to decide what to write about this couple, family, photosession... I am simply at a loss for words. The two of these people have been a part of my life from the beginning-well at least Aaron was and Tiffany came along shortly after. They have seen the good and the bad in my life. They have shared heartbreaks and excitement with me.

How many times do we as artists feel stifled in our creativity? I know that I do. Don't get me wrong, I love what I do and Weddings and Seniors are my favorite sessions because I have the most freedom with how I work; but there are so many times I am left wanting more. More from my clients, more from my photos, more from my art in general. I have inspirational photographers who I follow and wish with all my heart that I could somehow, someday, be as inspirational as they are.
