This weekend I went to York, Pennsylvania to hang out with my best friends! Brittany and I have been friends since elementary school and she has moved to PA for her job. Kristie, Ali and I went to spend the weekend to catch up. It is ALWAYS a blast with these three. I couldn’t ask for better friends! On Saturday we went to Moon Dancer Vineyards and Winery for a wine tasting and live music.
I’m so mad at myself for not walking around and taking better pictures of the Winery and Vineyard. It was gorgeous, and the view of the river was amazing.
The three above photos are compliments of Ali. 🙂
Its hard to go out in public with these two. Wine or no wine they act the same. 😉
I’m also mad that we only took an iPhone photo of me and Kristie! ❤
Such a cool truck parked at the vineyard. Great photo ops 🙂
I really like to play around with my editing style from time to time. The dramatic contrasts or the simple matte can change images drastically. I’m loving the black and white matte photo of Ali.
I also wanted to show a before and after of this pool image. We went to a luau at Brittany’s apartment and so there were plenty of people in the pool but with the help of photoshop you’d never know!
There was a couple raffles going on and Ali was the lucky duck to win the lottery tickets! She ended up winning $13 dollars too.
This weekend was much needed R&R and so much laughter. Can’t wait to hang out again guys ❤
This post has been long overdue. Exactly a month ago I had the opportunity to travel to Tulsa, Oklahoma to learn from two of my favorite photographers, Trisha and Madison. I’ve been able to get to know them online a bit over the past months and finally got to meet them in person! It is always fun to get together and talk to like minded photographers who understand where you’re at and know how to help you get better. This workshop was just that mixed with a lot of learning, shooting and a whole lot of fun.
On Friday I flew out to Tulsa for a workshop to ADVANCE my business. Madison of Madison Vining Photography and Trisha of TG Photography hosted the Advance Workshop. They shared all their tips and tricks from what “Must –Have” equipment, to posing, editing and marketing your business to be the best business it can be. Trisha picked me up from the airport and took me to Chick-fil-a before dropping me off at my hotel. I love her.
Trisha has the most adorable studio that gave me SERIOUS studio & prop envy. She specializes in newborn photography and is fantastic at what she does. Her images are so timeless and gorgeous! Madison is an on location photographer who loves senior girls and boudoir! Her signature sun-drenched images seriously are to die for. I wish she was photographing seniors when I was a senior in high school. These two entrepreneurs are amazing photographers and they know how to run a business and balance their family.
The first demonstration was newborns! We were lucky enough to have two perfect sleepy babies, one boy and one girl. Cohen was first and Preslee was next. We learned set ups and posing and of course newborn safety is the utmost importance.
In between the shoots we went through marketing our business and getting the most out of social media along with exactly how they edit their images. I’ve been having fun playing around the Photoshop actions and textures and all the goodies we received in our swag. The actions have cut down my editing time by hours. I’m obsessed!
The family session was a bit overwhelming for Asher at first but he of course warmed up to us and Raegan was workin’ it for everyone’s camera. She told us about her snake and chameleon and then caught a frog at one location!
Sydney. What do I even need to say about this stunning girl. I mean come on! Who looks like that in high school? Its not fair. But she was so amazing at modeling for all of us and kept up with all of the directions and all of the cameras. I had such an amazing time photographing her!
Is it wrong that my favorite part was winning prizes and getting swag? No.. didn’t think so. I won a Studio Baby posing puck and a newborn fabric backdrop! Then the bag of swag included a bunch of goodies and a USB full of actions, how to videos, templates and more. Plus this super cute bracelet that I want to wear all the time and never take off.
I did get a coaching call included and decided to pick Madison’s brain more on Seniors. I enjoyed it so much that it really made me want to start getting into the whole world of senior photography. I have lots of great ideas I know you all are going to love! If you are high school senior and would like to have your senior portraits done contact me for an amazing portfolio building deals! Spaces are limited so don’t hesitate and book now! 🙂
Here is the awesome video from the workshop!

How cute are these kids? I love this image so much!
Ohhhh no don’t kiss! 🙂
Such a fun time playing with their puppy Duke! Plenty of giggles and lots of hugs, and don’t worry.. No dogs were harmed in the making of these portraits!
This lovely lady and I got told we look alike. My moms friends have mistaken her for me and my friend saw her at the gym and thought it was me at first.. But her being at the gym was a clear giveaway that it was not me!
1. These are my favorite twins! It is NEVER a dull moment when I go out with these two. Had a blast going out in Annapolis on Saturday!
2. Chocolate chip waffles! I don’t even think I need to say anything else.
3. This was my Throwback Thursday of the week. Two of my best friends Kristie and Brittany, circa 2006, my senior year in high school! I’m so excited to get to spend the weekend with them and my other best friend Ali at Brittany’s place in Pennsylvania!
4. Once again.. whats with this weather. Crazy loud thunderstorms and pure gloominess. Ready for some sunshine!
5. Love this quote. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE IT! So true. Just be yourself because you can’t please everyone.
1. Its a lens, its a mug.. its a lens mug! How cute. Finally getting this birthday present to good use!
3. Chocolate Covered Strawberries anyone? I’m actually not a big fan of strawberries by itself, unless there is a lot of sugar or whipped cream covering them. But dipped in chocolate? OKAY, that works too!
4. We haven’t had much of a summer so far. I can’t believe its already July and I have not been to the beach or a pool! Rain, go away!
5. My mom and brother made dinner. It was delicious! Homemade Mac n Cheese, BBQ Chicken, Watermelon and Corn Salsa. I could probably eat Mac n Cheese everyday, but then again who wouldn’t?
