Our first workshop in August was amazing. Far out... teaching and sharing with this awesome bunch of women filled up my tank big time! Honestly, it was just amazing seeing how excited they were to learn to use their cameras in ways they didn't even know were possible, seeing so many lightbulb moments throughout both days, and watching them leave filled with so much inspiration and passion for photographing their kids!
An amazing bunch of ladies + a real eagerness to learn more about their cameras + good food + good laughs + an epic location + amazing weather + gorgeous little humans to photograph = the perfect combo for a great weekend of learning and playing.
"Just a quick note to say thank you so much for the last two days!!! It’s been fab! You were amazing!!! A VERY well run course!!! My brain feels like it’s going to POP! I don’t think I have had to think so hard or concentrate so hard since Albie was born ;) !!! Looking forward to taking some time to process it all and just play around with what I’ve learnt! I most certainly have a new found appreciation for Photographers! You guys are incredible!!!! " - Bex
I love this photo of Max. One of the things we talk about at these workshops is capturing the tiny things that your children do that are just part of them at that age and stage. So often kids get told to stand still and smile for the camera, when actually their real personalities and cute little quirks can shine through so much more when documenting the tiny day to day things. And they are often the things we want to bottle up and remember, because one day you'll look back, and suddenly they won't be doing them anymore. Naturally, wee Max got told to take his fingers out of his mouth while I was photographing him... but I love this, because sucking his fingers and twirling his hair are things that he does for comfort at this age. And when he's 18, he probably won't be doing that anymore ;)
"So pumped after a weekend learning how to actually use our DSLR from the wonderful Kimberley and Justine. I never would have thought it possible but tonight I took photos after dark, inside, of our boys moving, without a flash, on FULL MANUAL MODE. Crazy! Just feeling a little proud. Thanks ladies!!!" - Lisa
