March Senior Photography Workshop For Photographers

Senior Sessions

Exactly one year ago yesterday, I hosted my very first Senior Photography Workshop. I saw so many senior photographers in our industry wanting so badly to shoot seniors, but wanting to do it in a way that LOVES and SERVES their clients. I saw tons of in-person sales workshops, but no senior workshops that revolved around service, love and the shoot & share business model. So, my little baby of a senior workshop was born. I hoped to have enough attendees to make it happen…and then I sold out. Then I stretched my dream a little further and launched another. Then, yesterday I hosted my FOURTH sold out workshop and my heart has never been this full.

This workshop was so close to my heart for quite a few reasons. It was being hosted on the one year anniversary of the workshop (which I didn’t even notice until AFTER launching the date!!!), the attendees were coming from 10 different states all across the country (what!?) + they were the most excited, genuine, outgoing group that I have ever had. These ladies have blessed my life more than I will ever be able to explain in a blog post-I am so thankful for each and every one of them.

I couldn’t do these workshops without the help of my incredible family (like my sweet parents who help prepare the meals, run errands for me when I’m prepping my presentation + help keep me sane when things get crazy) or without Drew. He stood by my side the entire day making sure I was staying hydrated + eating, he ran errands to better serve the attendees without me even having to ask + helped me prepare for the last two weeks. I am so blessed to be surrounded by an incredible support system with such servant’s hearts-I could not be more thankful.

And-guess what!?!? The NEXT Senior Photography Workshop is going to be hosted on June 13th at my studio in downtown Fredericksburg, VA! Registration goes live THIS Thursday at 8am EST with the early bird rate of $100 OFF + a payment plan option! To learn more, head HERE!

One more HUGE thank you to all of the incredible sponsors who provided goodies for the attendees swag bags + giveaways!
