October Senior Photography Workshop For Photographers

For Photographers

Typically Tuesdays and Thursdays are my blog days…but I was teaching a workshop all day Monday, so there was no Tuesday post this week!! This was the LAST workshop of the year and it was an amazing way to end 2016!! 12 attendees from 8 different states, a caramel apple topping bar, amazing swag bags, a sweater weather styled shoot, beautiful weather and Chickfila catering…I couldn’t ask for much more!! ­čÖé I may have tired eyes and sore feet as I’m typing this…but it’s so worth it.

I can’t ever seem to accurately express my gratitude for the attendees at each and every workshop that I am able to host. Being able to teach and pour into other business owners is such a privilege…and I feel so lucky to have the opportunity to do it. My heart is so full after every workshop because hearing things from attendees like “I never knew my business could be built this way!” or “this is going to make my life SO much easier!” are what make me fall more in love with teaching every time. Here are some things attendees had to say about their experience:

“The Hope Taylor Senior Photography Workshop was well worth the investment! Hope answered every single question that was asked and really wanted you to learn all aspects of her business. The training I received from Hope will be so┬ábeneficial to me and will help so much in starting my business!” – Baylee

“I can’t even begin to express how much fun I had at the workshop yesterday! I learned so much and worked alongside some insanely┬átalented individuals. I’m still blown away that in such a short time my photography has improved to THIS!” –Gina┬á

WHAT!? So honored. Here are some of my favorite behind-the-scenes shots into the workshop!! Also, a little birdie told me that this was the LAST Senior Photography Workshop EVER…because something brand new is launching soon for 2017.
