Fall Workshop: A Styled Shoot

Anyone who knows me knows that I'm constantly on a budget. Some unfortunate events thanks to some unfortunate people have caused a ton of financial burden in my life and it's caused a real struggle when balancing my wants with my needs. Last fall, I entered for a chance to win a seat with the incredible Jessica Mae Photography. Her work is flawless and her business model is one to drool over. I entered to win because I've never attended a workshop or styled shoot, I needed to improve myself, and I wanted to meet some new friends! I accomplished all that and more at her workshop. Jessica is incredible and so is her work, for anyone wanting the perfect blend of film and digital, she's your girl. I won the seat and could not have expected what I took away from that day. So much information crammed into one workshop. Other photographers host workshops all the time and I definitely recommend that you go to one but please be careful which one you pick! Some workshops have upwards of 20 people and with that many people, you just don't get to learn or have a hands on experience like I did. I'm so so so thankful for the opportunity that Jessica gave me and I will definitely be forever in debt to her. This workshop helped my confidence and my work so much and I love her to death for that. This was definitely something that I couldn't have afforded on my own and I am so grateful for the opportunity to attend.

I think it's safe to say this workshop wouldn't have been nearly as awesome without Andrea Pesce Photography helping out too! 

I had so much fun meeting up with the other area photographers and I'm sure their images from this styled shoot will blow your mind. There's a ton of talent out there y'all! 

The wonderfully talented Jessica had her photos published!! eeekk! Check out her film photos here!

Here are a few of my photos from the workshop in November!
