Creative at Heart Round 4 For Photographers | Annapolis, Maryland


I have been sitting on this blog post for a few weeks now because I can never quite find the right words to sum up the Creative at Heart Conference. Each time I have the privilege to attend or photograph the conference, I leave feeling refreshed, inspired, encouraged and loved in ways that I don’t experience anywhere else. This conference has a way of changing your perspective, making you cry happy tears and leaving you with incredible new friends.

In March, I and the honor of photographing my second Creative at Heart conference alongside Kristi + Anna Grace. But, I also attended the first EVER C@H Conference exactly a year before that in 2015-so crazy!! So this was my THIRD conference and I love it more and more every single time. My sweet friend Kat of Dear Sweetheart Event (who you have probably seen style all of my Senior Photography Workshop styled shoots) is the creator and founder of Creative, so it’s close to my heart for more than one reason. One of my FAVORITE things about Creative at Heart is that it’s NOT just for photographers. This is a conference for all creative business owners-planners, designers, calligraphers, boutique owners, photographers, painters, branding specialists, bloggers, florists, invitation designers…the list goes on and on. But, even though the room is filled with ladies from dozens of different industries, we all have one thing in common: we are all creatives at heart. And, not only do you walk away with PAGES full of practical business knowledge, you walk away with a community of like-minded women who have all united at one incredible conference.

If you want to learn more about Creative at Heart, head HERE and, if you’re on the other side of the US, snag a seat to their Denver conference!
