For Photographers

Last week, I had the pleasure of mentoring the absolutely adorable Carly from King George, Virginia. We spent the day together at the studio chatting all things business, lighting, workflow, editing, posing + management. I absolutely LOVED spending time with her +  she is going to do such wonderful things. She is currently an art teacher at a local high school (she’s even taught some of my 2016 spokesmodels!) + her heart behind her business is just the sweetest. As a momma of one, she hopes to specialize in family photography + I can’t WAIT to see where her talent takes her!

Not only did we have a great time together, but we worked with the BEST couple for the shooting portion of the day! Morgan + Joey (the couple behind Hockensmith Portraits!) joined us while I walked Carly through posing, lighting, client interaction + location scouting! They are just the sweetest couple + I LOVED working with them!! Their style is definitely very different than my typical clients + I had so much fun working a tad outside my comfort zone to stretch my style!!

I hope you love my favorites from their sweetheart session! Love you, Morgan + Joey!!
