Workshop Recap + Registration

For Photographers

EEEEEEKK! Tomorrow is THE day! Registration finally opens for the Hope Taylor Senior Photography Workshop and I am over-the-moon excited!! At 10am tomorrow, January 12th, registration goes LIVE and you will have the chance to snag one of 12 seats at the March workshop! This will be the FIRST Senior Photography Workshop and there are SO many fun things planned! Each workshop seat includes 8 hours of teaching, new head shots, sharing a delicious meal, participation in the styled shoot by Dear Sweetheart Events, Q+A time, adorable vendor gifts, an optional pre-workshop dinner and more! I am pouring my whole heart into this workshop and I want every attendee to leave feeling inspired, refreshed and like the ultimate BOSS LADY (or gentleman!!) I want to empower all of the attendees with the tools that they need to kick-start or improve on their senior photography businesses, and I want them to leave feeling like they could conquer the world!

Last year, I hosted two workshops for other high school students who wanted to learn how to use their cameras in manual. I have ALWAYS had a heart to teach, and I knew from the very beginning that I wanted to incorporate it into my business. So, even though I had only been in business for a year, I did just that. I taught! And I LOVED every second of it. My most recent workshop in July 2014 was a BLAST and I had so much fun spending the afternoon with 10 fabulous ladies! We talked about all things related to the very basics of a photography business…mastering manual, the basics of a brand, finding your style, what it means to find your ideal client, etc. Then, we finished the day with a “Notebook” themed shoot at sunset and it was to-die-for! Some of my favorite images from that day can be found below!
